Earlier this year I wrote about JJ who has come to live with us as an International Student, and the reason she has gone into debt up to her eyeballs in the hope that one day she can bring her family to Australia.
Now the Moro Liberation Front has launched yet another attack on the tiny [predominantly Catholic] peninsula of Zamboanga.
Six dead, 20 hostages, and about 200 trapped in the city centre, unable to go home.
I can't begin to imagine what it is like to live year after year with this crap. I can't begin to imagine what it is like to be living with a self imposed curfew after 5 pm. I can't begin to imagine what it is like to be separated from a 6 year old daughter for so long [despite skype]. And I can't begin to imagine how JJ feels, right now, while all this shit is happening where her daughter, husband and sisters live, half way across the world.
If the US decides to attack Syria, the Philippine army will be on alert to help America. If Obama pulls off his plans, it will be a huge blot on his record.
Nothing can stop these pigs, and it's time to stop letting our own people die, to stop killing the innocent, as if we can make any bloody difference.
WTF is our new foreign affairs minister, the Stepford, wife going to do or say that will make any foreign leaders stop laughing at our new PM? If the US asks us to get involved in Syria, what is the Rabbit going to do?
