I don’t support the US policy regarding Iraq or the war on terror. But what’s worse is the fact the Filipino government is accepting the terrorists’ demand of withdrawing early from Iraq. If you teach these hatemongers that they can influence world policy through brutal murder, the world has become a worse place. When you’re fighting for lives, you’ve got to stand firm. Yes, it’s tragic to lose someone at the hands of terrorists, but the Filipinos have shown that brutality can win. They have just given the go-ahead to many more murders of innocents.
