De Capital of the Abu Sayyaf
Dean Bocobo at Philippine Commentary notes disapprovingly that the Left proposes to respond to the decapitation of ten Philippine Marines who were searching for a kidnapped Italian priest with "peace negotiations". That's right. Prove your moral authority. Stay calm. Don't lose your head. Oh wait ... Bocobo writes:
"The Philippines has SEVENTEEN decapitations to its name just this year alone, starting with those seven young men kidnapped for ransom and beheaded last April by the Abu Sayyaf's Al-Bader Parad. Add to that this past week's ten Marines who were beheaded and mutilated reportedly by Isnilon Totoni Hapilon, who has a five million dollar bounty on his sorry head."
