Give me Liberty or give me Death!

Philippine – American Day

America is back in Mindanao – right smack in the middle of a war against a Mranao family, the Mautes and the full force of the Philippine Armed forces. Ostensibly, the Americans are providing intelligence and surveillance planes.
Today, July 4, 2017, we should reflect back on July 4, 1946 when America gave Moroland — the Pat a Pangampong ko Ranao, the Sultanate of Maguidanao, the Rajahnate of Buayan and the Sultanate of Sulu — to the Indios-Filipinos in a newly created Republic of the Philippines.
As a consequence of that action, England immediately proclaimed Sabah, which was a territory of the Sulu Sultanate, into a Crown Colony and later gave Sabah to Malaya which became Malaysia.
England gave back Hong Kong to China in 1997 after 150 years of possession and Portugal gave back Macau to China in 1999 after around 450 years occupancy. America can still give back Moroland to its real owners — the Bangsa Moro. America can still undo what it had done on July 4, 1946 – only some 71 years ago…

The Setting Sun, 2.0

In 2002, one hundred years after the official end of the Filipino-American war and the beginning of the Moro-American war, I wrote an editorial in my online journal, The Moro Review. In 2008, at the height of the MOA-AD brouhaha – when a great majority of the Indios clamored for the scrapping of the MOA-AD – there were accusations that the American government was pressuring the Philippine government to sign the agreement.

Now, in 2015, history seems to be repeating itself. In lieu of the the MOA-AD, the Noynoy Aquino government forged a new agreement with the MILF. While almost the same as the MOA-AD, the newly-elected Aquino was seemingly able to convince the majority of the Indio-Filipinos to support the new agreement. But the Filipinos were just biding their time and when the opportune time came (the Mamasapano incident), there was a hue and cry against the proposed Bangsamoro…

Changing Marawi Narratives

The President has such an idiotic Maute/ISIS narrative. In the first place, nobody let the Mautes in Lanao. They live there. They are real Maranaos not like the President who claims to be a Maranao, too. Most Moros do not love the Philippines. They have been living under endless tyranny, as one popular book on … Continue reading Changing Marawi Narratives
