Gov’t intel eyes 3 groups abetting Sulu sultan’s claim


Whether the heirs of the sultanate of Sulu acted on their own to reclaim Sabah or were instigated by an external force to do so, one thing is certain, according to government intelligence sources: It was a business that proved too big for the heirs to handle on their own.

The sources said that the Philippine government’s policy on Sabah is to keep it in the back burner.

But apparently “some people” want to push it forward now. And why now, at this time, is one of the questions government intelligence is looking into.

The sources consistently mentioned three groups that appear to have taken advantage of the decision of the Kirams to pursue their Sabah claim.

“These are groups that wanted to ride on the Kirams’ pursuit with their own interests in mind,” one of the sources said.

Another source added: “There are a lot who can gain from this, not just in the Philippines but in Malaysia as well.”

These “external factors,” as an Inquirer source described the groups, are one small faction that is in it for the money, an anti-Aquino administration group, and the Malaysian political opposition.

“The Kirams planned to pursue their claim as early as last year. But they went to Lahad Datu also on the instigation of these groups,” the intelligence officer said.

The small group supposedly goaded the Kirams to ask Malaysia for a higher rent on Sabah. If Malaysia gives in, this small group would allegedly have a share of the increase.

The anti-administration group simply wants to discredit President Aquino and is using the peace process as a cause of disenchantment for the Kirams.

“All those who do not like P-Noy (the President’s nickname) have joined forces. This is one way to really test how this administration will react (to such an issue). Whatever happens in Malaysia, there will be a backlash on us,” one source said.

“In a way, whoever wants to disrupt the peace process or the gains of President Aquino has already won,” the source added.

The third group is allegedly the Malaysian political opposition, which is gearing up for general elections that may be called before June.

The intelligence officer said that one member of the Malaysian political opposition allied with Anwar Ibrahim was running for a post in Sabah.

“Apparently, this politician was one of those who spoke with the Kirams. He supposedly gave the opposition’s support to the Kirams’ claim to Sabah,” the source said.

November meeting

The source also believed that in their meeting in November last year, the Kirams decided to “reclaim Sabah or at least ask for a compensation for Sabah that is commensurate to the land’s value today, and for the royal family to be given due recognition by Malaysia.”

But it is being Tausug that is keeping Sultan Jamalul Kiram III, his family, and their subjects stubbornly pressing their renewed claim to Sabah, even to the extent of defying President Aquino, one of the Inquirer sources said.

“This is the last stand of Sultan Jamalul. Being Tausug, they already gave their word they would pursue their claim. This is now do or die for them just to keep their word of honor,” the source, a senior military officer, told the Inquirer.

But for another security administrator analyzing the events of the past three weeks, the Kirams appear to be quite edgy of late.

“They are confused. The government is hopeful that we can buy more time, find a diplomatic way out,” the source said, referring to the government’s efforts to help settle the standoff between Malaysian security forces and an armed group led by Jamalul’s brother, Agbimuddin Kiram, in Tanduao village in Lahad Datu town now in its third week.

Kiram unity

The Inquirer’s sources are from the diplomatic and defense establishments. They asked not to be named as they were not authorized to speak to journalists about their analysis of developments in the so-called journey home to Sabah of the Kirams.

The source said the Kirams decided to unite because they felt left out of the peace negotiations between the Aquino administration and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which signed a premilinary peace deal last October.

Calling gov’t attention

“The Kirams wanted to get the attention of the Philippine government,” the source said.

“For so many years, the family felt they have been exploited in politics. Sultan Jamalul was goaded to run for senator in 2010 but he lost. Then their letter to President Aquino (in 2010 before he assumed office) got lost,” the source said.

The source said the Kirams and their followers “conceived the details of the plan to go to Lahad Datu” in late January this year.

“In February, a small group of the Kirams’ followers left for Lahad Datu, followed by Raja Muda Agbimuddin,” the source said.

The estimated 70 firearms now in the hands of the group holed up in Tanduao are owned by residents in Lahad Datu, Tausug and Badjao holding Malaysian identification cards, the source said.

Malaysian security forces have encircled Agbimuddin’s group but are holding action, with the grace period for the group to leave having been extended three times and a fourth being requested by the Philippine government.

Malaysians careful

The Inquirer’s military source said the impasse continues because the Malaysians are extra careful in dealing with Agbimmudin’s group.

“They are all Muslims and they know that if there is violence, it would go on forever. There are 800,000 Filipinos in Sabah. It would be a huge problem in Sabah if violence erupts. The Malaysian security forces may end up dealing with guerrillas or a rido,” the source said, using a Muslim term for clan war.

    The issue in the standoff is the legal claim of the Kirams to Sabah as their Ancestral Land based on valid documents and morality on ownership.Did the forefathers of the Kirams relinquished Sabah to the Malaysian during the olden days?
    If the Kirams have legal right to claim Sabah then it’s not a big issue who’s pushing them to do so because the Phil Govt had consistently abandoned these people time and again. 

    • redape

      What valid documents? Do they even have the deed of transfer from the Sultan of Brunei that carries his seal. Brunei claims that no such exchange was ever made. 

      • F alonso

        That’s how you were taught by the fradulent Malays.

  • johnnie r

    …and now the latest spin from Malacanang is to put the blame on the CONSPIRACY THEORY still refusing to believe how a rag-tag group of armed men can enter Malaysia undetected and PHYSICALLY stake a claim at their ancestral land, to the embarassment of both Philippine and Malaysian authorities!!!

    Bakit hindi maabot ng utak ni Presidente Aquino at ng mga tauhan niya na sino mang tao na mawalan ng isang milyong piso ay hindi na mapapakali at makakatulog sa kaiisip at panghihinayang dito, lalo na kung iang nawala asy isang lupain na kasinglaki at kasing yaman ng Sabah na nagpayaman, nagpaunlad, nagpaganda at gumawa sa Malaysia na isang makapangyarihan at influential nation, so influential na  pati Presidente  ng Pilipinas at mga ka-alyados niya ay tiklup tuhod na ginagawa ang lahat para siya matuwa at maging kaibigan ni Aquino. Dati akong masugid na supporter ni Aquino. Wala akong hinangad kung hindi ang mabago niya at mapaunlad ang ating bansa. Pero sa nakikita kong arrogance niya at walang  tunay na pagtingin at pagmamahal sa mga Pilipino, lalo na sa mga maliliit at powerless, ay nawalang lahat ang paghanga ko at suporta sa kanya. Tinutulungan niya ang Malaysia na lalong i-oppress ang mga Tausug.  Kalokohan itong sinasabi ng intelligence report. Chain of events ang mga pangyayari na nag-sprout o nag-spawn sa kawalan ng anumang pagtulong ng mga nakaraang administrasyon, bukod kay Marcos at Macapagal, na mabawi ng lessor, ang Sultan ng Sulu, ang Sabah mula sa Malaysia na  inagaw lang ito mula sa original na tenant o lessee, ang North Borneo British Company. Walang sinumang tao na naniniwala sa katarungan ang papanig sa Malaysia sa ginawa niyang pagnanakaw na ito ng isang malaki at napakayamang lupain. Sa pag-gamit lang ng Logic ay matatanto mo na  ang isang taong ninakawan ng ganoong kahalagang kayamanan ay hindi man lamang matatahimik sa bawat segundo ng kanyang existence sa mundo at hindi lilipas ang kahit isang oras na hindi maaalaala at manghihinayang sa napakalaking lupain na nawala sa kanya, lalo pa at ang kanyang pamilya, kaanak at mga kapwa Tausug ay naghihirap at nagdurusa sa sobrang kawalan at paghihikahos.

    Presidente Aquino, ngayon ko natanto ang klase ng iyong pagkatao. Wala ka talagang anumang pagmamahal at loyalty sa mga Pilipino at nakahanda kang i-persecute sila gumanda lamang ang iyong international image at umani ka ng mga kaibigang  foreign statesmen.  Ang history ang magju-judge sa iyo. Binigyan ka ng Diyos ng pagkakatong mabago at mahango ang Pilipinas sa kinasadlakang kumunoy,  subali’t tulad ng iba pang mga presidente ay inabuso mo ang iyong puwesto at inapi ang  mga inapi na noon pang mga Pilipino. Sana ay tigilan ninyo na ang campaign ninyo na siraan at pasamain ang mga Kiram at mga Tausug, at nagdadamay pa kayo ng mga inosenteng Pilipino at mga banyaga.

      Effective upon the departure of this Small Unit from Sulu to Malaysia without the support of the government, the Philippines has lost by default its Claim on Sabah.

  • Weder-Weder Lang

    The intel reports may be plausible but they failed to stop Kiram’s Royal Army from going to Sabah. The intel reports came too late. They came after the fact. They may well be fabrications of PNoy’s administration for all we know. Huli na ang lahat. Kiram and his family have succeeded in forcing the hand of the administration. For ignoring the Kirams since day one, this is what ill-advised PNoy and his arrogant administration gets.

    In fairness to the intelligence report, it sounds highly politicized. The product of fertile imagination.

    • ApoLapullapu

      This is not an intelligence report. This is an intelligence analysis of the current situation.

    That Sabah belongs to the Philippines and that we Pinoys should drive away the occupiers is the issue here. The least we should do is for all Pinoys, from the president down to the common tao, muslim and non-muslims, to demonstrate unity and support on this demand to get back the land that belongs to the  Sulu sultanate. Any lesser action will show our weakness and non-resolve on the matter. If we don’t do it now, we might as well just abdicate our claim to Sabah and say goodbye Sabah. Retaking Sabah is worth dying for and all Pinoys should be one with our Tausog and muslim brothers on this fight. This will be a Pinoy fight and not a proxy one of the world powers. Let us drive away the squatters of Sabah…and let us give the many Pinoy illegal settlers the opportunity to have land in the land of plenty of Sabah.
    The government does not place the Sabah issue on a high priority because there is no strategy for  ‘Post Successfull Sabah Return to Philippine Jurisdiction’.  There is however a strategy for ‘Post Failed Attempts to Return Sabah to Philippine Jurisdiction’ and this is as clear as your pure mineral drinking water, kiss the butts of the occupiers because they are providing livelihood to 800,000 Pinoys…don’t stir the peace and calm in the neighborhood because allegedly the Pinoys will be on the losing end…etc., etc…which just shows us a weakling and spineless.

      But the President and the DOJ have threatened to file charges against the elements of the Royal Security Force of Sulu – meaning the government is washing its hands and is even helping Malaysia drive out the Heirs of the Sultan of Sulu from their own land.


    I assure you Mike Alolong is not involved in this issue.

    OK, Since they are already in Lahad Datu, it is nice that we are going to Talk sabah Now? or let it pass again and wait for another 50 years?

    Of all this actions..Sulu SUltan actions are highly commendable. If the Sultan and our fellow brother Muslim does not initiate this standoff… This issue will be trash t again to nowhere like the Sultans letter.It is not nice that we are already  about to have a FAIR DEAL?

     from malaysian news: wwwDOTDailyexpressDOTcomDOTmy

    Kota Kinabalu:
    Former Chief Minister Tan Sri Harris Salleh has
    proposed that the Malaysian Government permanently settle the
    long-standing issue raised by the Sultan of Sulu by way of a lump-sum
    compensation payment of RM200 million.

    RM200 Million is almost 2.6 Billyon Pesos lang ang buong sabah? Malaysia is profiting from OIL alone almost $70 Billion a year! for several decades…


    • NativeSabahan

      sulu only ceded the eastern part of sabah during 1800s. western part of sabah does not produce oil, genius. oil rigs are situated on the east coast of sabah.

        The Sultanate of Brunei denies that they ever awarded anything to Sulu. The Brunei Salahsilah (Annals) mention nothing about it, and they were commissioned by the Sultan who supposedly received the support of the Sulu in suppressing the Civil War. The Sulu Sultanate have never produced the document they claim that bears the State Seal of Brunei that confirms the cession. The Borneo Company acquired the “sovereign rights” from both Brunei and Sulu because of this dispute, and the payments to Sulu were “bunga mas” to prevent the regular slave raids and piracy along the coasts and rivers (that forced all indigenous settlements to move 70 miles upriver for protection).

        At best the Bruneians gave the Sulu Sultan (whom they later defeated and placed their own king in his place) the right to levy river tolls. That would be worth about what the Borneo Company actually paid for them, and since the current government doesn’t extract river tolls from anyone anymore those rights were worth nothing.

        If Sulu wants Borneo then perhaps it is THEY who should be paying for the costs of years of development that have been expended. They need to buy the buildings, roads, telcom towers, airports, ports, and pay for the plantations, all the expenses of the records, censuses, and any ships, airplanes, offices, etc. Let them come up with the billions of dollars for these things. Then they can talk about taking the sovereign power back…after a vote of the people…and a guarantee that they will respect the property and civil rights of all Sabahans.

      • JKG_HSA_VOSA

         Do you have copies of the receipt from the Sultanate of Sulu showing what the Malaysian Government and the British have been paying them? Maybe you can check (since you seem to have access to historical documents) what these payments are for, rather than just concluding that these are bribes to leave settlers alone or river tolls.

        From what has been reported so far, there really are payments made to the Sultan of Sulu. Can these payments not be considered sufficient proof that the Sultanate has some form of authority over the land? Why pay money to people who has zero rights over something?

        If what the Sultanate of Sulu possess is only a story passed on by word of mouth, I would not have put more credibility on their story. But they do receive actual payment from 2 governments who ruled and rules over the disputed land. That to me is prima facie proof of recognition of their authority and a solid support for their story.

    It’s very doubtful that the weapons in Tanduo are held by Malaysians legally unless they are “bird guns” or are being used inappropriately and outside their legal purposes.

     It should also be made clear that several members of the Kiran clan were deported just a few years ago for forging MyKads and Malaysian Passports and selling them. So the claim that these weapons are held by “those with Malaysian Identity Cards” is more than a little stinky.Besides if one bears a Malaysian ID card then isn’t that acceptance of Malaysian SOVEREIGNTY???

    • Matambaka

       Yes..More Filipino accepts Malaysian citizenship beacsue they are subject to abused ad maltreatment.

      Your government also in a hurry to give citizenship to this Filipino brothers because they can used them during election! These Malaysian politician benefited from these Filipinos-turned Malaysian votes!

      Its give and take… Do you know that some of the 300 men in standoff grows in Sabah? They are familiar with the place.

        Definitely.  Some of them are sons of those alleged Jabidah massacre  victims whose dead bodies were never found in Corrigidor because they had been secretly shipped out and infused into the Sabah population.

  • Jane Deasis Villena

    hahaha,  the Malaysian and Pnoy administration are getting jittery.  Of course the whole patriotic filipinos are behind the Kirams.  No need to identifu the group becasue they are all over not only in the Philippines but throughout the world.  The wisest thing that the government can do this time is to ensure the safety of the Kiram’s group in Sabah and push through with the Philippine’s claim of Sabah.  Every country has disputes on territories and boundaries so I can’t really understand what Pnoy is scared about.  It is truly beyond my understanding why he cared more for the Malaysans than his own citizens.  His actions this time will surely decide his political future

    • ApoNiLolo

      I don’t know about the Malaysians, but our president is more concerned about the economic repercussion of Kiram’s action to the 500K Filipinos working in Sabah and Malaysia. This is one of the reason why he wants everything to be settled diplomatically.

      Pnoy’s position is between – “Dam n if you don’t” and “Dam n if you do”.

        you dont even know Malaysia has been paying rental for Sabah for your entire life.  how would you even know that? you dont even know what is happening there without the FREE press of the Philippine websites.  Malaysia has hidden this FACT from Malaysian citizens because they do not know how to handle this.  their only solution is to KILL the landlords.

    How do you think our Govt. should have reacted..Diplomacy of course,and both sides did all they can considering the situation.The Kiram family played hardball so blackmail has no place in a civilized society. Malaysian authorities already bent backwards trying to find a solution,the Philippine Govt. already did all they can to resolve the problem.Pnoy did the right thing,diplomacy,maximum tolerance etc.but eventually you have to put your foot down.The Malaysians were patient enough and waited,but you can not wait forever.Unfortunately some people were killed and wounded,that’s to bad but inevitable.Watch people ride on this issue and use it to grandstand their position.There are organizations behind all this and used the Kiram family to push and create trouble.The peace process in Mindanao is being put in place,the local elections are in full swing..Meroon nakikinabang dito..Kawawa ang familia Kiram.

    UPDATE: The Malaysian PM has given order to its ground commanders to use necessary action”, balita Kiram’s troops are on the run. MNLF distance themselves from the issue because of fear to upset Malaysia.  MILF will not send there troops because of the peace agreement. Siyempre takot rin sila sa Malaysia.

    ASG will niether help, takot din sa kapwa nila muslim na taga Malaysia.

    The Malaysian are now geared for combat nasaan na ang matatapang at gusto lahat daanin sa brasuhan. ayaw niyo makinign sa payo nang liderato nang bansa.

    Punta na kayo sa Sabah, the Malaysian warriors are waiting. Patayan ang hanap ninyo ngayon nakita niyo. Pag naubos na kayo, tatahimik na ang Mindanao.

    Pero magisip sisp ulit kayo nang sampung beses pa, bago tumulak paroon sa Sabah. Walang magyayari sa ipnaglalaban ninyo. Ang pinakamagandang hakbang ninyo ay sumunod sa payo nang gobyerno, bumalik na kayo at saka pagusapan.

      Malaysia should have settled the matter with the Sultanate. There are historical facts and precedence that needed to be properly addressed here. If it has to be heard in the ICJ to settle the matter of ownership, compensation and other socio-economic issues once and for all, then bring it there so this matter does not forever drag and people can live in harmony.

  • zeroko

    The government should not resort to the “Divide and conquer technique.” It’s hitting below the belt. I was formerly a domestic pilot with Air Manila way back 1972 when my aircraft got grounded in Sulu. My crew and I were invited by Princes Tarhata in a party held on the roof deck of their City Hall. Among the guest were government officials. As she started her speech, she said, “Those of you who does not like Malaysian music is free to leave.” And the Malaysian music went on. 
    At that time, the Governance of Sulu appreciates the Malaysians more than our central government. They feel that the “Luson Government” has failed to deliver the government services to them. That was the time when a group of government representatives went to an Island in Sulu and it ended in blood bath. The government agents were all killed. It was the time when government helicopters declare a no-mans land in an Island and machine gun any fishing boats they find. One of the Catholic missionary was in verge  of tears because he said, after declaring the island as no-mans-land and while the inhabitants were fleeing, the military helicopter came out of the sky like an “Angel of Death” and spared the pump boats with automatic. 

    Those were the days when soldiers who were caught by the rebels were buried alive and were tortured, And the rebels use a megaphone to make the cry of agony of those soldiers they caught so vividly loud and clear as they torture him to death. And after the soldier dies, his body is desecrated. They normally cut his sex organ and place it to his mouth. This is how brutal the conflict was.

    I also have flown the C-130, a giant propeller cargo airplane and collect the “body bags” of the slain soldiers. It was the the time when I met Senator Gringo Honasan and Red Kapunan, the instigator of the people power when they were still 1st Lieutenant,  I am part of history on those conflict. I also flew the Muslims that former President Marcos gave amnesty and brought them to Manila and gave them their place in Taguig and Quezon City. The former President then thought that by giving amnesty, the Muslims would behave. But, he misinterpret the whole situation. 

    The Muslim’s struggle is as old as our history. It is recovering the land.that they lost. The problem became very intense during the time of Former President Ramon Magsaysay when he encourage landless farmers to   go South (Mindanao) to seek their fortune. No wonder that in General Santos, when I fly as Commercial pilot, the population of General Santos is a motley or mixture of different groups, the Ilocanos, the Pampangeneous, the Visayans, and all sort. And the Muslims, while watching on the side, resented the intrusion of their land. 

    I also felt these when I flew the B-747 in the International route. While in Hawaii on vacation with my family, I was stopped on the hotel aisle by an old chamber maid. She blocked our path and said, “Do you want to see a real Hawaiian?” And I said, yes. I have in mind a wiggling scantily clad young and pretty dancer, when my imagination was cut short. She said, “I am the real Hawaiian.” And she went on with her rhetoric. She said, “Once, this were our land. But when the white-man arrived, they stole the land from us. Now, were are a vanishing breed. Our population is  getting smaller because we do not have any means of livelihood except to serve the white-man.”

    To me, it wordings looks similar to what is happening to the Filipinos in this 21st Century. The real Filipinos, the brown race has been marginalize by the Filipino-Chinese. The Chinese took over our government and our businesses. And the Filipinos has nothing except to work for the Chinese in a very disadvantageous manner. Filipino labor has been marginalize. Other countries call us “A nation of SLAVES.” I really do not know how to solve the inequality. It seems like our situation is like a balete tree. A baleter tree grows near a host tree. First, it grows small roots to surround its host tree. Then as it grows larger and stronger, the roots of the Balate Tree strangle the host tree preventing it to take in nutrients. Then the host tree dies and the Balete tree now can live on its own.

    I’m an Independent Mayor Candidate here in Q.C. I am alone, no political party or anything else. The money I have comes from my pocket. I have retired 15 years ago. I am pitted against a giant establishment if you may call Quezon City Hall local government. Their major allies aside from the Liberal party are the Barangay Council. Our Barangay Council is no longer a-political, as dictated by Civil Service Commission .which says, no government employee or organization should participate or allow themselves to be use as political campaign. No, sir, everyone violates and take  for-granted these provision. In the same token, this too is a violation of the COMELEC Omnibus Code that says, It is illegal to campaign for or against a candidate when one is a government employee. My name is Henry E. Samonte. No. 3 on the line up. 

    I can not afford to remain silent while my opponent is using the entire political machinery to his advantage, both government and the Liberal Party. If you people still believes in Democracy, vote for me because I represent the Silent Majority. My profession aside from a Pilot is, Agriculturist, a salesman, a Landscape Supervisor, and advertising solicitor, a barbershop and beauty Saloon operator, a Aluminum and Glass, Iron works fabricator, engage on Stocks trading, fishing boat, cattle raising, taxi operator, etc. Seldom will you see a person who has immense experience in his life time.

    If I succeed, this will be my last career lease I be cut short by an assassins bullet. It’s time that the voice of the people be heard. What we got in the government is not democratic, it is Oligarchy which meanst the people there are rich and powerful. Give me a chance to represent you people.

    • koolkid_inthehouse

      Why didn’t you run for senator or congressman or governor?  With all those businesses you own now you created jobs for Filipinos.  Expand your business hired more full time workers and run for Senator or President.

      Why are you blaming only Liberal party, blame foreigners?  Filipinos in foreign land got the same treatment because they became successful than the local.  

    • desi derata

      I read your post but I cannot quite get your statement about Honasan and Kapunan being the “instigator of the people power”. Never. Those violent men believed in the power derived from the muzzle of the gun.

      And it seems that you conveniently forget who politicized the locality’s administration that we call barangay. It did not happen yesterday, it was 4 decades ago when young men paraded while holding flags, banners and streamers ala Hitler Youth.

      But you did not see the evil that was sowed and nurtured by that evil marcos. You were like a monkey during those dark days of democracy – see no evil, hear no evil and talk no evil. Tell me again why should I even consider you seriously.

      Senator Aquino was part of the investigation behind the Jabidah case where young muslim men who were being trained to infiltrate Sabah and to sow chaos and disorder in the island.

      The trainees later found out what was it that they were training for and started to disobey their training officers. Some of them threatened to go to the media. Then, their commanding officer, Col Martillano, ordered his staff to kill everyone of them so that nothing would be leaked to the media but one trainee survived. Hence the investigation.

      Malaysia got angry upon hearing the reason behind the massacre of some 20 muslim men. If you need to blame someone , it should be Marcos or Espino or Undersec Syquio or Rolando Abadilla or one Capt Cirilo Oropesa together with Col. Martillano, one Lt Batalla who became a general. They were the brains behind Merdeka,

    Malaysia do not really deserve Sabah as much as the Sultanate of Sulu. It may perhaps benefit everyone if North Borneo is left to fend for itself, as much as Indonesia did so for East Timor or what has also become of Singapore. Should North Borneo eventually becomes sovereign and carve out a path to its own future, ASEAN would be a better place without tribes havng to fight for their own identities, like what is happening now in that part of the world.

    Pulitika ang puno’t dulo ng kaguluhan ngayon sa Sabah. May election dito sa Pilipinas at mayroon din sa Sabah. Dito sa Pilipinas hindi ang May 2013 election ang tinutukoy ko kundi and 2016 presidential elections. Napansin ko na panay ang banat ni Kiram kay Mar Roxas habang si Binay naman ay todo suporta kuno kay Kiram. Ang political operator naman na si Pastor Boy Saycon ay umain na adviser siya ni Kiram. Si Saycon naman ay kasama ni Peping Cojuangco sa COPA. Sa nakaraang 2010 election ang Samar faction ng LP identified with Peping ang naglaglag kay Mar Roxas sa VP race in favor of Binay. Maliwanag na ngayon pa lang ay may maniobra na para sa 2016 presidential elections at ginagamit ang Sabah issue para maimpluwensyahan ito.

    History is repeating itself on the AQUINOS. Indeed, A few of the very important parts of our History is creeping and haunting such name and its offspring. The MORO rebellion was the root cause of the decades of protracted mess and destruction in MIndanao  On top of this issue, the name NINOY AQUINO came in after his expose’ about the Jabidah Massacre. As this gave birth to the MNLF. Afterwards, NINOY became a superstar and became as the “champion” of the masses. Years later, his son NOYNOY now taking the issue with blood in his hands. His nonsense, scare-tactics didn’t work with the strong-willed and determined fighters who are willing to sacrifice their lives in the name of honor and faith, whom his late father NINOY insinuated the tausugs to rise up. The winds of change is taking PNOY on these matters with the twist of fate.Years after, NOYNOY’s mother,  CORY came into power, the country was put into darkness brought by corruption and mismanagement of the NPC, that triggered nationwide brownouts. It took sometime to resolve the issue of brownouts until the RAMOS administration. The hit is…NONOY is bringing back the same POWER CRISIS with bitterness in Mindanao. It was a scenario experienced by filipinos nationwide during CORY’s regime. Another issue, The HACIENDA LUISITA: An issue since the time CORY AQUINO, where CARP was enacted and yet, no land was distributed until PGMA paved way in favor to the farmers. When NOYNOY came in,surely we all know what happened next. HAcienda LUISITA is subject for CARP; on the other hand PGMA and CJ CORONA are imprisoned. The fate of the AQUINOS are intertwined with the affairs of the state. Their names will be much written in the new chapters in our History books. The Philippines today, is the result from the past affairs where the AQUINOS had something to do with it. Sounds strange, huh?? pure coincidence or accident by fate??..

     tausuq..tausug…tausug….heard a lot about this race said by many
    philipines…. how many science, islamic, sosial research they
    contribute? how many of them are great islamic n science scholar? how
    many of them have win Olympic medal? how many of them are civil right
    fighter?how many of them have hold world title in any field? how many of
    them are creator or innovator that contribute in any modern world dev? 
    if none nothing are great about them…… what i read about them are
    great fighter, warrior, being held high by supporter because they fight
    greatly… but they truth are they had been left behind hundred years
    ago by the development of knowledge… and continue the life of jungle
    people…. what a sad story? my advise, go fight in your country to get a
    good education… only good education can free ur race…. can give u
    greater independent….

      To be a good fighter does not have to be a good students as what tun mohd firdaus says. .The Malaysians  until now  were paying for the lease on Sabah thru Malaysian Embassy in Manila.So , I think you tun mohd firdaus will be the one to go to schools to educate yourself.Got it?Guerrilla warfare ,the Tausugs will never be outsmart by Malaysian army.That is using only the jungle without using airplanes as what the

        as what the Malaysian are planning to do.Mano o mano ,they can not defeat the Tausugs.They are harden fighters since immemorial .It was because of them that cal.45 was invented by the Americans because the Tausugs can be defeated by just cal. 30 firearms.Got it tun mohd ferdaus?

    tausugs are full of s++t. they claim to have 800000 but they can not finish the works? idiots. this the reason why there should be an RH bill. dumami silang lumpo at bobo.

    go! prove yourselves. 100 tausug versus 1000malaysian police. dapat ubos mga malaysian.

    Actually there’s a 4th group: Aliens from another part of the galaxy are manipulating the Sabah conflict. We’ve sighted several UFOs in the vicinity of Sulu and Sabah before the intrusion into Sabah. We don’t yet have any proof, but we will find them. I think these aliens from another planet do not like Pnoy.

    If we are to follow Pnoy’s usual logic, this is all being manipulated from Veterans Memorial hospital…

    abnoy: ” paktay, ano magandang gawin???”
    abnoy:” a alam ko na! kasalanan ni gloria ito! he he he, naniniwala pa naman mga bobong pilipino dito he he”

    abnoy:” ilang ringgit kaya matatangap para magign spokesman nila he he he”

    Ang mangyayari netoh MNLF/MILF/Abu Sayaff/at mga iba pang muslim groups ang puputakte sa Sabah. Mararanasan ng MALASia ang ginawa nila sa Pinas. Kabayaran din ito ng kaninlang kasakiman sa pagkamkam ng Sabah. Napakaraming problema ng PINAS at hindi natin matutugunan ang alinmang alitan. Defensive mode po tayo at maski nga sa ganitong position eh hindi pa tayo handa at lalong hindi uubra kahit kaninong bansa sa mundo. Pagsasalang sa ICJ/UN ang pwedeng isagawa ng PINAS agad agad para sa Sabah.  Ang panalangin na lang natin eh huwag sanang ilagay uli sa BACK BURNER at tuluyan na itong masunog at maging abo. Ito ang putaktihin natin ng follow-up thru media at issue sa eleksyon. Mabuhay po ang PILIPINAS!
