Thought this was news worthy of ATS.

The rebel group M.I.L.F (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) has killed 49 (other sources say 43) police commandos in the Philippines after the Police entered their territory, without giving any warning, starting an eleven hour gun battle between the two sides.
The police were chasing a suspect who was believed to be responsible for bomb attacks in the country from the terror group Jemaah Islamiyah.

This news comes whilst the country is in peace talks with Muslim groups that looked to be successful but may now have problems, though M.I.L.F confirms it still holding its cease-fire. The B.I.F.F (Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters) were also thought to be involved in the firefight, this group of several hundred Muslims having aligned themselves with I.S.I.S last year.

This was two days ago but I've only now stumbled across this although it is in several newspapers online.
Often I see people saying "but look at all of the peaceful Muslims in Asia" it doesn't really seem to hold any water.
All of this reporting about the hostages in the Middle East yet there are such deep problems in the Philippines that have been brought to my attention!
And yes the Muslim group is called M.I.L.F.

This has been going on for decades, I guess it suits western state media to only start addressing the issue now. Maybe we should start spending our tax payers money on building more naval bases to contain China, woops, I mean stop muslims.

I am sorry, i know those deaths are horrible, but... to be killed by Milf...
There is a sense of humor in the world, even if its not appropriate.

Well that's what you get when you send police into the jungle to fight a guerrilla army.

(still trying to figure out what the Philippines we're thinking when they did this, maybe they were truly surprised by the battle. then again, when you've got a force of that many cops complete with machine guns, you can't really say they weren't expecting resistance.)

That's exactly what I thought.

B.I.F.F. stands for Best Islamic Friends Forever.


And yes the Muslim group is called M.I.L.F.


That MILF is into some pretty extreme, hardcore stuff..

It does hold water...

Unless of course you consider these people as representatives of every Muslim in Asia...

Secondly, you haven't gone into the political or ideological background of what may have caused this all to occur...

What sort of relationship do these extremists have with police "commandos"...
Commandos LoL exactly what I'd want law enforcers to be called...


Finally, "chasing" a suspect does not really seem like it would cause such a firefight...
My guess is that something else occured in between the firefight & the chase which actually had enough of an impact to bring about such a circumstance.

Yes MILF exists and they are no laughing matter. A total shame many can't move on and unite instead of fighting among themselves. S + F

What caused my reaction was that I've seen far too many people say on ATS claim all of the Muslims in Asia as peaceful yet this happens - and the Muslims were clearly heavily armed and prepared.

I was by no means colouring all of the Muslims in Asia as violent, I apologise if you saw it this way.

I think American law enforcement is as militaristic and I agree the whole ordeal seems rather strange.

"The rebel group M.I.L.F"

Housewife's of The Philippines are obviously out of control.

Typical conspiracy BS. Guess what media (except the BBC) depends on advertising to make money. It does this by having stories people read. If no-one gives a damn about "a topic" then it does not sell papers. The Phillipines HAS been reported many times over the years BUT only as a one off now and then. The reason being nobody in the west gives a damn.

Blame the consumers of the media who don't care enough to keep the story high enough up the agenda that compels politicians to do something.

I am sick to death of reading "Ignored by MSm", "MSM does not want you to know" etc etc. Every single time I can get several articles about every single topic with less than a 5 minute Google search.

The religion of "Peace" once again showing how peaceful they really are.
Read it, learn it, it's coming to the U.S. soon and I for one will be firing back, and I'm a very good shot.

5 minutes?
That long?

Is your computer stream driven?

I agree, the vast majority of the time it is very easy, but quite often they can be found tucked away somewhere discreet or even obscure in the major news outlets websites.

People have to be bothered enough to go and look for them.....far too many people have come to expect things delivered to them....and far too many people simply don't care.
That suits so many agenda's - news agencies who don't really want to publicise too much about some stories and wish to push their own agenda's.
And many people are happy in their own ignorance, for various reasons.

They were attacked by MILF? I never imagined that sexy mothers could effectively engage in a sustained firefight. Live and learn.

Fair enough Dodgy, hopefully I didn't come across too rude in my response.

Apologies if I did.


It does definitely seem strange if it was all due to a chase...
Something tells me there is more to this story...

And possibly a history of altercations between the two that escalated in such a fashion.
