Bombing in Davao , Philippines 9/2/16

I was just told about the Bombing from my Girl friend who lives near there, it was in Davao , Philippines , she thinks the death toll was 15 but its still too early to tell, with many more wounded. This hits close to home for me because she has family there and we hoped to spend our Honeymoon there. I may pick another Island now.
I hope the Philippino government will act on this right away and drive the terrorist safe haven from the country. The Bombing was done by Abu Sayaf, she says.

If the bombing is ASG related, it was probably a demonstration to ISIL. It signifies that ASG is ready for membership in the so-called Caliphate.

I thought we taught ASG a lesson 10 years ago. Looks like we're at it again.

FC: I hope your friends and family are safe.

I would not be going to Mindanao if I was you - to many potential hiccups to say the least. Want a nice place to stay for a Honeymoon in the PI? Head up north to Mindoro or Palawan.

Sorry to hear about the bombing, that Island has been having issues for going on over 25 years. Hope your friend's family is all OK.

I especially like the part where the Philippino President orders his Army to kill them all. Thats the proper way to deal with them. Ill be glad win America gets a president with some balls. The right way to do it is to kill a or remove all the muslims from the country and ban Islam and call it what it is, a terrorist group!
