I am shocked and saddened that the Philippine govt REFUSED to arrest the self proclaimed sulu sultan. Right now he is sitting in comfort in
Philippines, giving interviews to the media and foolish syncophants hoping for a piece of the pie, IF he is successful in his claims.
Philippine is a democratic country, ruled by law from its constitution. Karrim is a philippine citizen and subjected to philippine laws. And there NO
laws in Philippines that support slaughtering of innocent people - local or foreign, or worse, to dish out carnage and slaying in a foreign land in
times of peace.
Karrim had ORDERED the invasion upon Malaysia, and his wife had inflamed the malaysian citizens living there to rise up and kill the non-filipinoes.
These had been done OPENLY, and reported by the press. These are evidences of their crimes and YET, the Philippine govt had done nothing.
I do understand the underlaying reasons why they did not act, because they fear that arresting Karrim would only create martyrs out of them, rallying
others to such foolish cause and create instability within Philippines, already wrecked with seccessionists.
BUT the truth is that if the Philippine FEARS to act intelligently and decisively, to bring Karrim to justice, then it WILL ONLY BE AN OPEN
INVITION to others to seek seccession for their own causes - druglords, 2 bit tribal groups, sugar barons, crime gangs, corrupted elites, etc, and
then Philippines WILL ONLY BE DESTROYED..WITHIN...BY THEMSELVES.
In the past, Philippine territories were mainly island chains and ruled by weak tribal factions. They had never unite, had never progressed and
evolved while the West did. As a result, when the colonizer Spain came in the 15th century, they easily fell and became slaves, had remained slaves,
thanks to their regressive leaders who led them.
It was Spain who UNITED the terroritories and gave it its name, and brought civilisation to the terroritory. But colonialism had never worked, for no
human remains slave for long. The slaves and their descendants learnt civilisation and in time tried to overthrow the spanish. They failed.
It was the Spanish American war in the late 18th century that they saw a glimmer of independence, when spain ceded its philippine terroritories won or
signed by treaties from the indigenous people, those that they held, to USA in 1898.
The philippine slaves of many tribes including the Moros fought as one united country sharing the dream of unity an freedom, from 1898 against USA,
till their absolute defeat to America in 1913. However, USA is not a colonizer, and by 1916, it promised indepence to the People, which in 1935, they
ruled themselves, but were disrupted by WW2, and yet once again, USA rush to their help to free them from the brutual japs occupying their lands, and
sovereignity by 1946.
Thus, as all can see, those calling for seccession in Philippine today are traitors to the philippine forefathers whom had fought TOGETHER as a nation
to end their enslavement. If they had each fought as a tribal unit alone, they would have failed miserably, and remained slaves, even today and become
colonized by others -such as China or Islamic Radicals.
It was the blood of ALL Philippine People past, that had created the progress and evolution of its society today, united by its constitution and rule
of law. And for the seccessionists, they MUST be dealt with, or the blood, sacrifices and efforts of the founding fathers would have been in vain, as
well the thousands of american troops who died there to free their fellow human brothers and sisters of the Philippine People from the japanese
imperial army in the 40s.
May karrim and all his fellow seccessionist conspirators be arrested, tried and sentence after trial. The Rule of Law must be upheld AT ALL TIMES, or
chaos will only follow. The seccessionists are but few. They may make us of all forms of media to trumpet their causes, BUT equally, so too can the
majority of Philippine People and the govt do the same, and win.
