If man's justice fails, God will surely take over.

I condemn to the highest degree the massacre that happened in Maguindanao yesterday. It is an act of barbarism and utter cowardice that armed men, reportedly numbering to a hundred, would viciously attack unarmed people, rape the women and behead their helpless victims. These people are a disgrace to the Filipino, who albeit living in dire straits, has, since time immemorial, proved his tenacity to uphold his dignity through honest perseverance and hard work. Too bad, that living with him are goons of politicians who seem to live during the stone age when a woman can be had by pounding her head with a staff. There is no honor in getting what you want through sheer force. On the contrary, there is too much honor in even a lost battle but fought hard through intelligence, patience and perseverance.

What these barbarians did was an act of treachery to the Filipino and to the entire nation. They do not deserve to live in a civilized world where open minds and liberal ideas should prosper. May the wrath of the Lord bestow upon them and their tribes.

This is not only revolting. It is also shameful. My heart is full of sadness for the victims and their families and for the Filipino people, in general. We should all raise our voices so Heaven will hear our cries of anguish and sorrow.

may the wrath of the Lord also strike at the heart of these beasts and their ilk, the president of their shamed Republic, their families and dynasties, their soulless patrons and barbarians. altogether let us spit without end at the shadow of their worthlessness until we acknowledge their presence in the nth circle of dante's hell...

It is an insult to animals to be compared them to these killers. Animals only kill for food or to defend their life.

Hubby filled me in on the details. as I only found out by accident... a Google Desktop headline was pointed out to me by my officemate & it says "massacre in Maguindanao, Philippines".

My husband went into full lecture mode giving me the clans' background, political affiliations etc etc... Nakakarimarim kung bakit pwedeng mangyari ito & kung bakit yung mga MAIN suspects takot mamatay!

I've not seen pictures & to be honest I will not look for any news. Rely na lang kay husband. Nakakalungkot at nakakagalit... ITO ang mga klase nang taong nakapaligid & ka-alyansa ni Arroyo. Let's see what will happen.

But Pinoys must rise up!menes

bertN And you're talking about wild animals. There are species in the animal world that are more civilized compared to them. M dog, for example, is the kindest, most loyal creature.

auee amen!

barbaric indeed. indescribable. the news saying that there were no indication that the women were raped did not lessen the pain of what had happened.

bing Latest news is five of them had been raped. But yes, that only made a very sinister deed even more evil.

The Ampatuans are what the Dimapuros are during Marcos time. They are the absolute rulers in their feifs. These people knows only one law - the strongest rules, and respect only those who have guns.

They exist because they are useful to the power-that-be as guard dogs against its enemies and a source of votes to legalize its illegitimacy.

blogusvox Well said, as usual. Yah, I remember Dimaporo during Marcos' time.

Twenty years of teaching must sure amount to something. A new friend in cyberspace suggested I ought to have a journal by now. I agree.

Jack of all trade, master of none. First a disclaimer. My students have discovered this blog and they might think that what I write is gospel truth. Worse is they might find an argument that they think they can use, for some reason or another, against their teachers. So, to set the record straight, it is NOT. As a matter of fact, I write and open it to feedback to get another view in the hope that somebody would tell me if I am wrong and reenforce my thinking if it is right. Not that I will accept anything thrown my way, though. Just so I can think about it some more and decide whether my original stance is right or definitely off tangent. So there. I hope that clarifies everything. Now, on to blogging.
