Wishing the Filipino people success in dealing with these murderous Islamic terrorists. Show no mercy - they deserve none.

Another terrorist group claiming to be occupied?

The Philippine military killed 11 Muslim separatists (terrorists) depending on your outlook on Friday.

This is obviously the "revenge" of that organisation. As usual, the innocent are the ones to suffer.

They lose sympathy from me when they resort to terrorism. India didn't resort to terrorism to get the British to leave.

Catholic Philippines and no surprise this happened as the Philippine government has neglected to address the terrorists they allow to reside in the Mindanao area and beyond.

Philippines is corrupt !

The USA too busy to care

Muslims have been waging war on Catholics in that part of the Philippines since the Spanish conquered the region from the former Islamic Sultanate that ruled the region.

The Philippine government has been fighting groups like Abu Sayyaf, Moro Islamic Liberation Front and Moro National Liberation Front for decades with significant US military support. The US has a standing operation in the region called Operation Enduring Freedom - Philippines. U.S. forces are strengthening the Philippines military and using civic action to drive a wedge between rebels and the Muslim populace.  You may wish to do some research before making such obviously uninformed statements.
