Expect candlelight vigils

If I was a Filippino living in the United States, I would immediately self-deport. Not due to the rising tide of nationalism and the ascendancy of the God-Emperor to the Cherry Blossom Throne, but simply to bask in the sheer awesomeness of President Duterte:
At least seven members of Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte's security team and two soldiers were injured in a roadside bombing ambush by suspected Muslim militants. The attack took place ahead of the president's planned visit to the south of the country, AFP reported citing the president and the Armed Forces.

An explosive device planted along the road detonated when the presidential convoy headed to Marawi, the capital of Lanao del Sur province on the island of Mindanao, the second-largest island of the Philippines. “The truck carrying the president's advance security detail was hit by an improvised explosive device,” Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said, as cited by Reuters. “There was no firefight.”

Lorenzana said that he advised Duterte to cancel his visit to Marawi, scheduled for Wednesday, as the situation is “still not under control.” The president chose to ignore the advice. Never one to take the easy way out, the combative Duterte said that “The advice was to postpone. I said no, I will go there. And if possible, take the same route,” the president was cited by Reuters, and added that “Maybe we can have a little gunfight here, gunfight there.”
I am confident that President Duterte's response to the attack will be temperate, restrained, and proportional. Between Putin, Trump, and Duterte, it appears that the nations are beginning to produce strong leaders worthy of the challenge of the times.

Legend has it that when Pershing was in charge of Moro pacification on Mindanao, he brought peace to one area via a simple method. After a battle with Moros, he ordered pigs brought to the area where the swine were killed and skinned.

Then the Moro dead were publicly wrapped in the pigskins and buried immediately while locals and the few surviving Moro fighters were kept as witnesses. After the burial party was finished, the Moro fighters were released, told to go home and tell everyone what they had seen.

Legend has it that Moro resistance pretty much stopped after that.

Truth re Pershing - most of that sort of thing was done by the Philippine Constabulary (under US officers) years later.

I have been translating a Spanish history of the (Spanish) conquest of Jolo/Sulu in 1876 and they too did some of that sort of "disrespectful" burials.

It is interesting to see the rising good-will between nationalist movements. The globalists have given us a common, obvious enemy and the internet has allowed us to channel around the MSM narrative control, and it belies the idea that the alt-right/nationalist movement is cartoonishly racist. (That's exactly backwards, of course: we are racist cartoons.)

I remember when Bush said, "Bring 'em on" in response to the Iraq insurgency. People criticized him for it, and still do.

He made the mistake of apologizing for it a few years later, when asked if he had any regrets. I doubt that it tempered his critics. It surely didn't make any of the various insurgencies ease up on their atrocities.

Duterte looks like he's not going to back down, even years from now, which is good. He needs to be tough, and stay tough. We all do.

Given the way he handled his critics, Bush had something wrong with his head. Apologies, really, are only when a reconciliation is possible. For the lefties they are a mistake. He also never defended his reason for going into the Iraq (2) war, when he could have. Forget the merits of it, it could have been defended, and in the political arena it should have been.

I am pleased to live in a humane society, but we also live in a strange period where the reluctance to do violence is so low that we encourage it.

Kill the people who support you only with reluctance, but there is no gain in being reluctant when dealing with the enemy. From the beginning of time to maybe a hundred years ago, the weak terrorizing the strong would never have worked because there would be a response. What would happen to the Arab nations who sponsored it is that we would discover how many of them we had to kill so as to shut it down. And how ever many that was, that is how many would die.

And in most situations, ditto for 4GW. Try that against the Romans, or more or less anybody else, and the outcome was apt to be extermination.

Elisco Machine & Tool of Manila makes those same 1911s for the Army of the Philippines; export to the US under various importers' brand names is a smallish side line for them.

They also manufacture, under license, M16 rifles, M60 machine guns--and M3 submachineguns, including a locally designed integrally suppressed version, which currently have a length of Picatinny rail atop the receiver tube, to which the main users (Philippine Army SF) affix red-dot sights of various types--Aimpoint if budget and US State Department export policy allow, Chinese knockoffs otherwise. They also manufacture copies of the prewar Colt "Detective Special" in .38 Special and the Czech CZ75 in 9mm, oddly enough.

The Philippines isn't really sufficiently industrialized to have a munitions industry that is capable of supplying 100% of their local military needs (and out in the boondocks there are still subsistence farmers putting meat on the table for their kids with scrap-iron zipguns loaded with match heads and lead fishing sinkers)--but they've made great strides in this area.

They aren't stupid; given Twentieth Century history of the region, the intransigence of the US government, and their current neighbors, they'd be foolish not to.

The threat of immediate violence being returned will keep those prone to violence in check resulting in a greater peace. Those who can't control themselves are dealt with efficiently, also resulting in less violence. Have you thought your gripe through or are you just virtue signalling?

This was one thing my dad always told me when I was growing up, that the strong leaders of the 60s such as Brandt, Schmidt, DeGaulle, Kennedy were all a product of necessity due to the difficulty of the times.

I tried telling him that Donald Trump is one of these people and that I think he's answered the call. He told me that he didn't rate Thatcher or Reagan initially but he changed his mind about them therefore he's prepared to change his mind about Trump.

Duterte is descended from the Moros. His grandmother is from the same region this bombing took place. His son's wife and grandchildren are also Muslim.

The narrative that he's tough on Moros is a false one.

It's been months since he pledged to wipe out Abu Sayyaf, and he can't even keep them from actively pirating in the waters off the tiny islands they inhabit.

He calls the people who enslaved 10,000+ Christian Filipinos before the US ever set foot there the "subjugated peoples" of America, which is why he forbid the police from harassing Muslim vendors who sold illegal goods while he was mayor of Davao.

A strong leader takes on his country's internal problems/enemies. In the case of the US, that would include a bunch of cartels. Big Pharma, HMOs, Hollywood, and just about everything that is big on K Street. Draining the swamp will require hiring some non-swamp creatures. He may or may not do that. Price and Chao seem fine in the swamp. A GOP-friendly swamp is still a swamp.

Not trying to be all negative, but Trump's supporters need to push, and not rest on their laurels. And don't let the bought-off right media convince you that somebody the left doesn't like is good. If someone is a board member of a Jeb Bush group that pushes Common Core, well, it walks like a swamp creature and talks like a swamp creature and ... is a pay-off for helping to win Michigan. Necessary perhaps, but one more problem inside the tent.

Since our God-Emperor is not actually 'one of us,' is it not a worry that he will end up with an anchor's-weight of old crap wrapped around our future?

But having sojourned among them for a number of years, I have to say that, as a general rule, I like Moslems. Yes, yes, they're replete with flaws, but that have some compensating virtues. Not least of these is that they truly believe in their faith. How many / what percentage of westerners can we say the same of? And then, they don't fuck around with those who deserve the death penalty; they inflict it.
