    Hindi ako papayag sa pagkatalo natin sa mga Muslim…400 pulis elite unit nagkaroon nang 44 casualties, sa Muslim 8 ang namatay? Eto na ang pinakamagaling na troopa nang Pulis.Ang sniper daw nang Bansamoro ang maraming pinatay na pulis.Ang Presidente being the Commander in Chief will give ultimatum to the Muslim to surrender,one of the terrorist who escape during the gunbattle. If they don’t surrender on the deadline, Military invasion will follow and this is a good reason to cancel,the peace agreement between the Muslim autonomy and the government.

    Although the long standing problem in the Philippines Police and Military equipment (communications), training and coordination exist…Is the PNPSAF the premiere or lead agency in dealing with terrorism? Having said this, my full respect remains to the 44 elite members who lost their lives. In contrast with the United States, the FBI will take the lead at any time terrorist act takes place. If indeed that is the case, does the PNPSAF-AFP intelligence units support mission? Is the PNPSAF equipment (communication) equal to that of the MILF/BIFF, an intel question? In navigating through Mamasapano, Maguindanao, does the PNPSAF new territorial lines where other terrorists group exist?
