How poetic.

On the hilltop, pages of blood-smeared newspapers — apparently belonging to the journalists — fluttered in the wind.

Irony

Qin Gang, spokesman of China’s Foreign Ministry, yesterday said: “we are shocked by the incident. We denounce it and extend our sincere sympathy to the families of the victims.”

Carnage

“My wife’s private parts were slashed four times, after which they fired a bullet into it,” he added.

“They speared both of her eyes, shot both her breasts, cut off her feet, fired into her mouth. I could not begin to describe the manner by which they treated her.”

Challanging the Warlord

“It’s not hard to determine the motive,” according to Philippine analyst Kenneth E. Bauzon. “How dare this [Mangudadatu] challenge him when he knows that the governor is a position that is presumably reserved for [the Ampatuan] family.”

This is unbelievable,,killing is a mortal sin!!all AMPATUAN officials should be penalized by death. They should suffer what they have done to the innocent people. They must experience that in HELL. This kind of crime do not deserve forgiveness.

Where are the mothers of these Ampatuan men? Let their mothers see these brutally killing made by their children. What kind of upbringing they made to have these kind of children???!! My God this is too much for you to bear. What will be the reaction of God our father on this…. I don’t know to call this crime?

What is happening to the Philippines? OH, GOD WE ENTRUST OUR FUTURE TO YOU.

ang presidente siguro ang kaylanagan magasikaso na kasong ito..

a friend of mine whose workign at the COA here in region 11 said that a portion of CY 2009 Department of Agriculture budget estimating to P600M+ were transfered to ARMM this year,and subject for liquidation. However, these funds were not liquidated by the Ampatuan and neither a government auditor in the area would have the courgared to inspect and to submit a report. Isa lanf ito na kalokohan ng mga ampatuan…

Arvin - December 12, 2009

I hope that information gets to the COA, or to whoever is suppose to deal with it. The Ampatuans must be held accountable for this.

But no, their likes should be exterminated from this forsaken land.

Nakakahiya ung mga photo nina Gloria, Ampatuan Sr at Zaldy na akalamo tupang maamo, pwe… sana dumating na ung kaparusahan mula sa itaas…

12. kelvin - December 7, 2009
