In the aftermath of the botched US-directed attack on Mamasapano, the Aquino III regime has launched a full-blown military offensive, covering 11 municipalities of Maguindanao and North Cotabato, against the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Movement–Bangsamoro Freedom Fighters (BIFM-BIFF). In Sulu, since last November 2014 until recently, the Armed Forces of the Philippines, with the aid of the US, has launched no less brutal anti-Moro attacks in the guise of stamping out terrorism in the region, victimizing not the “terrorists” but the civilian Moro populace. These all-out attacks are at the behest of the US “war on terror”.
