« on: May 21, 2017, 04:18:42 AM »
My story happened in 1971. Niadtong panahona, bag-o pa lang nag sugod ang gera gera sa Mindanao. Muslim vs. Christian. At that time, 3rd yr. ko sa civil eng.g. sa University of Bohol. Nahitabo nga nang recruit ang Phil. Army sa ROTC. Para ibala sa Mindanao. Jolo and Palawan. Gi laay ko sa ahong eskwela kay lagi boloktorian man, daghan ko ug hagbong sa mga subjects sa civil eng.g. Mao to nga naka hunahuna ko nga mo join na lang sa Phil. Army. Mi enlist ko. Nag training mi diha ra sa Tagbilaran. Ang among CO si Calimbayan. Nakalimot na man ko sa ijang first name. Ricardo man tingali to. Ang training officer namo was a Tagalog. Lt. Grio. Kining sundawo ta dali ra maka attract ug chicks. Si Geesnel Lim, of the well known Lim family of Tagbilaran mo adto pod sa stadium. Motanaw namo mag training. Kay naka sight man sija ni Lt. Grio. Pagka gwapa ni Geesnel. Kalami na lang unta ipanguyab. Pero kotob ra intawon ko sa tanaw. Tulo laway. Ang ang man ug mo entra ka. Tenyente ang kontra.

Mo dalikyat ko ug uli sa Maribojoc kay duol ra man. Naka fatigue ug takin sa garand. Pagka hawod ni Balonglong. hihihi. Barog barog dajon sa eskina. Pa view sa mga chicks. Kay sundawo lagi konohay. Sailor, soldier, salesman. Mao ni mga attractive sa chicks. I have been all three. Anhi ta mo concentrate sa pagka sundawo kay ug e apil pa naho ang sailor ug salesman. Di na ta mahuman. Adto ko mag istambayan sa ilang Dodong Hugo nga balay. Pa atbang sa tindahan ni Nang Lilang Campos. Naa man gud sijay duha ka gwapang dalaga, Si Espie ug si Lita. Nanguyab ko ni Espie. Pero wa jud ko ka dama. Very poor pa man mi sauna. Unja ahong kontra nanguyab ni Espie, si Al Barcinas, rich ug gwapo man. So no effect ahong pag unporme uniporme, takin sa garand.  Wa jud mo lingi si Espie naho.

Miabot ang panahon nga nahuman mi ug training. Deploy na mi sa Palawan. Sa ahong hunahuna, basin pa ug magka uban mi ni Bokatch. Kay dugay ra man nga nag sundawo si Bokatch. Pilay pad ug maka join ko sa ilang unit. Swerte jud tingali, nag kauban ra mi si Bokatch. Sugod na sa gera gera. Permero nahong engkwentro, naka igo ko ug usa. Katawa ko ug doro. Ingon ani man diay ning gera. Mora ra pod ta ug nag duwa duwa ba.

As I have said kining gera mora ra ug duwa duwa. Dili ba sa gagmay pa tang bata, mag gera gera man ta. Naa tay ginama nga posil posil. Dili man tanang higayon gera. Naa mau usahay mag attempt pod ug peace talks. Singgitan mi sa mga moklo, "dili mi mahadlok anang injong armalite. Plastic man na. Which was true. Pero hadlok sila ug garand. My preffered arms was a garand rifle. Kay mag imagine ko nga sniper konohay ko, expert marksman and sIYOTer. Pero sa tinood lang, in real life, perte nahong banga-a.

dear darya aw diary diay.

nag tanaw2 ko sa FB, nakita naho ang video ni fr. jingboy saco, parish priest of maribojoc. nag basketball clinic sila si fr. saco ug ang ahong amigo si dodong bangalao, coach sa UB juniors. lingaw ko nga nag tanaw sa video sa mga bata nag clinic sa bbol. so i decided to come home for a vacation. to join the fun. sunod tuig pa unta ko mo uli. october man mahuman ang clinic. timing pod kaajo nga bag-o lang mi nahalinan ug juta. kabilin sa mga grandparents. mahal man ang juta sa lapulapu city mao nga ang halin P30 milyon. pero tungod kay daghan man ming igagaw mag bahin, P1 milyon ray ahong bahin. i told myself, kini, mag pesta na pod sa basketbolan. ipangora ni nahong P1 milyon sa audience nga mo tanaw sa ahong bbol game. i have this strange compulsion of giving money away. sa dihang wa pa matumpag ang maribojoc church sa earthquake, nangora ko ug $1 ug P20 gikan sa kampanaryo. pero tungod kay wa na may kampanaryo, sa basketbolan na lang ko mangora. last time i did this was 2 yrs. ago when i vacationed. gidala naho ang mga barkada from cebu city gi pa duwa against maribojoc selection. pildi ang cebu by 1 shot. pagka human sa duwa nangora na pod ko ug $1 bills. tongtong sa stage. hihihi. mo angay ko ug bibo inig uli naho. pamawi ba kay labihang mingawa ko dinhi sa states. 20 na ko ka tuig ga pojo dinhi sa among neighborhood in poinciana, florida, wa gani ko kaila sa mga ngan sa mga silingan. nawong ra. ug magkita just say hi. sa ato kaila tanang silingan. thats the difference. so pamawi lang ning aho when i come home. pa bibo sa ensakto. its my way of recharging myself

Armed Forces of the Philippines chief of staff Gen. Eduardo Año said the fighting in Marawi broke out when troops attacked a hideout for Muslim extremist leader Isnilon Hapilon.

The Abu Sayyaf’s Hapilon has reportedly been chosen to lead an Islamic State group branch in Southeast Asia and is on the U.S. Department of Justice list of most-wanted terrorists worldwide, with a reward of up to $5 million for his capture. An Arabic-speaking Islamic preacher known for his expertise in commando assaults, he pledged allegiance to the IS group in 2014, according to security officials.

Año said Hapilon, who is still recovering from wounds sustained in a military airstrike in January, and more than a dozen of his men summoned reinforcements from their allies in the Maute militant group. Ano said nearly 50 gunmen in all managed to enter the city.


One group of about 20 gunmen took position in a hospital, where they raised a black Islamic State group-style flag at the gate, and 10 other militants went near a provincial jail where troops and policemen engaged them in fighting, he said.
Troops sealed off major entry and exit points to prevent Hapilon from escaping, Año told The Associated Press by telephone from Moscow, where he was accompanying President Rodrigo Duterte on an official visit to Russia.

“They did some burnings, they showed up in another area so it looked chaotic, but it’s actually a small group facing an overwhelming number of government forces,” Año said.
“We will conduct house-to-house clearing and do everything to remove the threat there. We can do that easily,” Año said, but added it was more difficult in an urban setting because of the need to avoid civilian casualties.

The Maute group is one of less than a dozen new armed Muslim groups that have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group and formed a loose alliance in the southern Philippines in recent years. Hapilon was reportedly designated the leader of the alliance.
The Maute has been blamed for a bomb attack that killed 15 people in southern Davao city, Duterte’s hometown, last September and a number of attacks on government forces in Lanao, although it has faced setbacks from a series of military offensives.

Last month, troops backed by airstrikes killed dozens of Maute militants and captured their jungle camp near Lanao del Sur’s Piagapo town. Troops found homemade bombs, grenades, combat uniforms and passports of suspected Indonesian militants in the camp, the military said.
While pursuing peace talks with two large Muslim rebel groups in the south of the predominantly Roman Catholic nation, Duterte has ordered the military to destroy smaller extremist groups which have tried to align with the Islamic State group.


Duterte had repeatedly threatened to place the south, the scene of decades-long Muslim uprisings, under martial law if terrorism spiraled out of control. Human rights groups have expressed fears that martial law powers could further embolden Duterte, whom they have accused of allowing extrajudicial killings of thousands of drug suspects in a crackdown on illegal drugs. On Tuesday, on account of the fighting in Marawi, the President imposed martial law on all of Mindanao. — AP

At least 10 soldiers killed in Marawi ‘friendly fire’
Agence France-Presse / 11:25 AM June 01, 2017

At least 10 soldiers killed in Marawi ‘friendly fire’News
(Updated, 11:45 a.m.) Military airstrikes aimed at Islamist militants who are battling soldiers in a southern city  killed 10 of their own men and injured seven others, the defense secretary said on Thursday.

“A group of our military armed men were hit by our own airstrikes. Ten killed,” Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana told reporters in Manila, adding the incident happened on Wednesday.

Security forces have been battling militants flying the black flags of the Islamic State (IS) group in Marawi, a major Muslim city in the predominantly Catholic Philippines, since Tuesday last week.

The military has bombed and fired rockets from attack helicopters throughout the conflict with the militants, who have been hiding in residential areas holding hostages.

About 2,000 civilians are also trapped in the militant-held areas, according to the local government.


Fire rages at several houses following airstrikes by Philippine Air Force bombers to retake control of Marawi city from Muslim militants who lay siege for nearly a week, Saturday, May 27, 2017 in southern Philippines. Philippine military jets fired rockets at militant positions Saturday as soldiers tried to wrest back control of a southern city from gunmen linked to the Islamic State group, witnesses said. Civilians waved flags from their windows to show they are not combatants. AP

Military chiefs have repeatedly said the assaults involved “precision” and “surgical” airstrikes, and assured they were not harming any of the trapped civilians or hostages.

“It’s sad but sometimes it happens in the fog of war. The coordination was not properly done,” Lorenzana said Thursday as he announced the deaths.

He told Agence France-Presse (AFP) later via text message that seven soldiers had also been wounded.

The clashes erupted when security forces raided a house to arrest Isnilon Hapilon, a veteran Filipino militant regarded as IS’s leader in the Philippines. He is on the US government’s list of most-wanted terrorists.

Authorities said they were taken by surprise when dozens of gunmen emerged to protect Hapilon and then went on a rampage through Marawi, which has a population of 200,000.

Most of the residents had fled the city but the International Committee of the Red Cross has repeatedly expressed deep concern for those who remained trapped, and called for a humanitarian ceasefire


“I think it’s horrific for the civilian people who are in there and we really hope that both sides can agree that the civilians should be given the opportunity to come out,” the deputy head of the ICRC’s Philippine delegation, Martin Thalmann, told AFP in Marawi on Wednesday.
