… malady in governance is typical in a nation such as philippines … whose people’s inherent identity was misplaced, forgotten and and will be lost if we do not make assertions even though seem futile …
… a case in point was when the foreign government introduced the railway system in luzon to start such a thing they called civilization or progress if you may, as if we never had …
… but then, the greed of for extension of dominion by empires all over the world took over manila with “filipino” trainees as presidents, they never continued nor adopted the railway plans of the past …
… instead, new roads and highways were built with the brawns of our natives for their imported cars and buses from other lands …
… then they come up with lrt and mrt whose fundings are sourced from foreign banks under the guise of loans or debts which the local inhabitants will have pay to pay forever, leaving behind the old rail ways of the not so distant past …
… ganito rin ang mangyayari sa bangsamoro, pag napalitan na ang presidente, ang magiging bagong boss ay gagawa na naman ng bagong plano, at kakalimutan na rin ang mga dating nagawa na alang-alang sa kanilang partido na tagapagtaguyod daw ng tinatawag nilang demokrasya …
… the bangsamoro republik was a short-lived but unrecognized breakaway state in the philippines.
… mnlf issued the proclamation of bangsamoro independence on 27 july 2013 in talipao, sulu and declared the capital of bangsamoro to be the city of davao. the republik is against imperialism that is manila.
… milf, the other muslim group, in direct conflict with mnlf, successfully made a new and separate political agreement apart and separate from the previous one that was signed by the mnlf years back in indonesia.
,,, mnlf agreement with the philippines government, in turn, is brokered by malaysia.
… indonesia and malaysia, both neighbors of the philippines, have an outstanding but conflicting territorial jurisdictions in their own areas …
… while the proclaimed territory of bangsamoro defines the whole islands of mindanao, palawan, sulu archipelago., including the state of sabah and sarawak, to compose the republik, directly contrasting the philippine dominion.
… the latest escalation of hostilities between the philippine government and bangsamoro was in zamboanga city that proved to be devastating to the muslims and the civilians/citizens of the city.
… with all of the destructions, the mnlf appears to be enhancing more its bid for the independence of the bangsamoro republik as the politicians in manila wag their tails of cowardice or preferred ignorance.
… the term bangsamoro comes from the lumad-manobo word bangsa, meaning nation or people, and the spanish word moro came from moor which was originally meant for the natives of morroco.
… In the 13th century, the arrival in tawi-tawi of muslim missionaries from persian gulf began the initiation of the native population of sulu to islam.
… the first step in tawi-tawi whose balangingi inhabitants, were in peaceful accord with the warriors for peace or mandirigma from the now forgotten katagalugan in luzon.
… the missionary invaders proceeded further to talipaw and lamitan in the nearby islands of hulo and basilan, where the persians introduced their own slave-trading business to the balangigi and other indigenous inhabitants of the sulu that made the well-accounted ferociousness of the muslims in those areas.
… the sulu natives, in fact, did try to invade several coastal towns in mindanaw and managed to gain success somehow, even tried luzon but the tagalog kingdom and nobility gallantly fought and suppressed their incursions …
… in the same way and manner in which the tagalog mandirigma or warriors repelled the hindus from the island of luzon, after the successful domination of the visayan islands by the hindus in much earlier times; the incident in the island originated the tagalog word parlance “hindot or hindut” referring to the failed hindus.
… the intruders were able to leave behind the names and titles of their leaders and their families in manila, like the sultans, rajas and datus that were recorded for posterity by the spaniards in their history and consequently in our own.
… the eventual success of the castillans and roman catholic church in manila for about 300 years changed the facts about the real history of luzon and contributed to the already misplaced identities of the three groups of islands; they even forgot the fact that the gat, dayang, mandirigma and maginoo were the real tagalog natives.
.. The chroniclers of history even wrote that the alipin or visayan slaves brought to manila by the muslims were actually members of the tagalog tribe.
… in 1457, the introduction of islam led to the creation of sultanates that included the territories such as buayan, maguindanao and sulu which became the oldest muslim government in the archipelago, until its annexation to the main group of islands such as luzon, visayas and mindanao, by the americans in 1898.
… in short, the spaniards and americans were the ones responsible in promoting the alterations of the authentic histories of all the islands in this far east, that was ethnically and geographical divided right at the very beginning.
… the Magdiwang of Bonifacio did vainly try the resumption of the Katagalugan Republik that was killed by the magdalo faction of aguinaldo. So, we now have this thing called flipino history.
… the government that was created for the new-named country, philippines, was destined to subdue the independence or separation of bangsamoro.
… the solutions of the previous governments, the present one and the others to come will always be defined by political ambitions, economic opportunities or selfish preservation and dictated upon by the ruling party and the plutocrats.
… the muslim conflicts in mindanaw shall never end if the true identities of all the natives are not protected, cultured or enhanced in rightful manner.
… no government can succeed in this hullabaloo or moro-moro of so-called peace agreements since the concoction of the name philippines for this present-day identity of the three main groups of islands of an archipelago.
