It has been over four years since American special forces have been in many hot spots in Mindanao. And no casualty!?
In other troubled areas, American troops are fair game. But not in Mindanao!
Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying I want the GIs to be killed. I am curious why they are not being targetted by militants.
I remember Michael Meiring. He is the American who was spirited out of a Davao hospital after accidentally blowing himself up at his hotel room. He is the reason over the long-running spat between our Mayor and the US Embassy. Among the items he left behind at the scene was his identification card of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
So, which side really are the Americans in the war in Mindanao?
