MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine military came under increased pressure Tuesday to rescue more than 20 foreign hostages after their Muslim extremist captors beheaded a Canadian man, but troops face a dilemma in how to succeed without endangering the remaining captives. Abu Sayyaf gunmen beheaded John Ridsdel on Monday in the southern province of Sulu.…
This is huge news not only because of the stance that then Liberal leader Justin Trudeau took regarding these terrorists (lets hug them and find out why they’re so pissed off) when he was criticizing then Prime Minister Stephen Harper but also because a Canadian was taken hostage 6-months ago and we’re just learning now that he’s been murdered.
Shame on these murderers for kidnapping innocent people – especially Canadians – and killing them when they don’t get their money. I think in the same way that these thugs think it’s okay to force people to trade lives for money, the Philippines needs to get their act together and fast to find each and everyone of these criminals, and bring them to justice… alive! This way the message will be send to anyone who thinks this is okay that it’s really not.
This way the family of the poor Canadian who was killed can look at his murderers in the face and spit in their face if they want knowing they won’t be getting money to buy more weapons, buy influence and continue to live outside the law.
This way PM JT will be able to save face by having taken clear actions to try to save this mans’ life plus the life of the other Canadian held hostage instead of just saying that the bad guys are going to pay for this when nothing can be done.
I think as global citizens, we’re all getting pretty pissed off and annoyed with these thugs and their weapons trying to spread fear and violence wherever and whenever they wanted. Don’t the governments of these areas realize the drop in tourism and the reputational damage that they suffer from after this lawlessness?!? Do they even care, or are they being bought off??
Enough already. These people are not a group, they’re not a gang, I don’t care who they support, what they stand for or what they hope to accomplish. They’re murderers and they need to be caught and brought to justice… NOW!
