Time is on our side
It is reported in the internet that Malaysian police are storming the houses of legal Filipino Sabah residents tearing up their residence certificates, telling the men to run and shooting them for trying to escape and raping the women who are now fleeing in boats into the open sea to escape the sexual attentions of the Malaysian police.
None of these reports allegedly filed by Manila and Mindanao correspondents are taken at face value; they are printed only between quotes as though whatever Muslim women say must be taken with a grain of salt, unlike the pronouncements of Malaysia which are repeated verbatim by the palace and put out by media as Gospel truth.
If the reports are lies, we shall soon know. Even if the Philippines and Malaysian govts continue their news embargo of Sabah. Truth is the daughter of time and time will give birth to the truth. Meanwhile let us say nothing, because it is better to say nothing than read from a Malaysian script like the govt is doing.
Even if the reports are true, we should still say nothing and do nothing, for now. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Remember that all our armed elements: the AFP, the NPA, the MNLF and the MILF have been in constant brutal battle with each other for half a century. That’s a heck of a lot of reality training in warfare. The Malaysian armed forces have never been in a fight. So, easy, easy lang. Time is on our side.
