The question is: is our children learning?

Still doesn't beat the story of the kid mailing mushrooms in those potato chip bags.

This thread is useless without pics of hot Filipino chicks.

I'm sorry to report that a GIS for "hot Filipino chicks" is worthless.

Meh, kidnapping is cottage industry in the Philippines. Maybe Columbia or Argentina have it worse.

Philippines == The Finest Results of American Imperialism.

Bus 174, a movie about a gunman taking people hostage on a bus is a good documentary about the poor in Rio.

Hmm, I bet there'd be a lot more comments if these were American kids. Or Australian even.

FFS ... there is no such thing as a "free" good or service; it's merely a matter of who pays for it. What they're demanding is to have their bills paid by others, under threat of force.

"I have instructions to ensure no one gets hurt."

The last hostage negotiations I was involved with I had instructions to "make sure everyone dies."

That was a really easy day.

Fark off. ISLAMIC Chechen terrorists murdered kids in Bezlan, remember? Horrified me more than 9/11 itself. Yeah.

The story is farked up in so many ways. You want to wait until a Bezlan incident occurs here in the states? A yellow school bus filled with American children exploding will pump the hit-meter up, right? Would that please you?

Just fark off.

Vegas odds say Muslim gunmen.

*clicks link*

BBC, so ... vague on details that might predispose anyone jumping to judgement.

I'm guessing not Muslim, given the part about educating youth. Demanding compliance to Sharia or enforcing some indoctrination, maybe, but this may just be some lone nuts.

My mom just flew there this past Saturday because my grandmother is in the ICU. Somehow I expected something in the news while she was there anyway.

One of the men, who identified himself as Jun Ducat,...

Uncle Jun??

40-50 students were killed in Bath, MI when the insane School Board Treasurer blew up the school.

5OV, I'll tell you one thing. If those were Americans inside that school or inside that theatre, the animals that instigated the event wouldn't be romanticized as freedom fighters.

Calm down, passionate person, it was just an observation. Obviously it's true, with only 40 or so comments. Can you imagine how many people would be worked up here if it was a Western nation? It's true. Why does that observation upset you so much to call me names for pointing it out?

And if you really want some nightmares about the Beslan hostage nightmare, read "The School:"

Condescension will get you almost everywhere.

I called you... a name? Where? I will prostate myself before thee if this is true. Or maybe its' just a shallow tactic employed by empty heads such as yours.

And if you really want some nightmares about the Beslan hostage nightmare, read "The School:"

I know more than I can forget about that day.

My question stands: will you be satisfied when an American school bus goes up in flames?
 
2007-03-28 12:42:02 AM
I called you... a name?

"Fark off...just fark off" may not technically be a "name," but most people would consider it an insult, don't you think?

I don't know why you're so annoyed with me. My only point was that people in Western nations don't really give much of a damn when it's non-Western kids suffering. Just like white blond girls who go missing get all the attention.

What's your major malfunction?

And if you haven't read that story, you really should. It's an incredible tale.
 
2007-03-28 12:43:28 AM
And yes, to answer your question, when an American school bus goes up in flames, I will run outside and laugh and laugh with glee. If I can find the suffering parents, I will seek them out and point and laugh.

Is that what you want from me, weirdo?

/some people are truly insane

Don't you mean Uncle Boys?

Back to topic. There're a lot of nutcases running around in the Philippines. Most of these idiots claim to fight for freedom, but often enforce their agendas with poorly planned shock-tactics.

I'm more afraid of the cops. There was an incident a few years back about poorly trained cops killing the child-hostage instead of the attacker.

Am surprised that nobody has gotten some laughs with the name of Senator Bong Revilla in TFA....(or the yahoo, article, didnt RTFA for this one)

Nightmaretony,

It's because he goes by Senator Ramon Revilla in TFA.
 
2007-03-28 01:46:56 AM
I currently live in Makati, Philippines. This is just a BS electioneering move. Senate Elections are in a few weeks here. I give it a 5-to-1 shot that no one dies in this, and that a Senator will "negotiate" a happy outcome. Mark it.

This situation is really no different from liberals holding American children hostage in government schools.

It's about the same thing.
