Wala na si Bin ladin, tuloy ang ingat

Ngayong patay na si Osama bin Ladin, ang tanong ng karamihan ay, “Mas ligtas na ba ngayon ang mundo?”
Oo at hindi.

“Oo” dahil kahit papaano, mapipilayan sila. Nawalan sila ng isang lider na inspirasyon nila sa kanilang baluktot na pag-iisip.

“Hindi” dahil siguradong marami naman sila sa kanilang organisasyun at sa ganoong paniwala. May mga bagong lider sa ganoong paniniwala na aakyat balang araw. At dahil nga siguro sa pagkamatay ni Bin Ladin, hindi nakakapagtaka kung nag-aapoy sila ngayon sa galit at gustong maghihiganti.

Pinapaigting ngayon ng mga awtoridad sa kampanya laban terorismo ang paghahanap kay Ayman al-Zawahiri, 59, ang doctor na Egyptian physician na pinapaniwalaang no. 2 man sa Al Qaeda.

Kaya ang pagkamatay ni Bin ladin ay hindi rason para magiging kampante ang ating mga awtoridad pagdating sa seguridad.
Maganda ang mensahe ni U.S. President Barack Obama: “We must and we will remain vigilant at home and abroad. The United States is not and never will be at war with Islam.”

Hindi kaaway ng mga Kristiyano ang Islam. Hindi pinatay si Bin ladin dahil siya ay Muslim. Kaya siya naging target ng liquidation dahil sa kanyang mga ginawa na pagsabog ng lagim sa mundo. Ang pinakamalagim at ang pagbomba ng World Trade center sa New York noong Septyembre 11, 2001.

Ang nakaka-intriga sa mga report sa pagkamatay ni Bin Ladin ay nandoon siya sa isang siyudad ng Pakistan, hindi sa kuweba o sa kabundukan na kontrolado ng mga Taliban. Ang Abbottabad, kung saan nadale si bin Ladin, ayun sa report, ay base ng tatlong regiments ng Pakistan Army. Parang kampo pala ang siyudad nay un ngunit nandun nakatira si Bin ladin.

Sinabi tin sa report na U.S. operation ang nangyari. Marahil dahil hindi tiwala ang mga Amerikano sa military ng Pakistan na matagal nang sinusupetsahan na kasabwat ng mga Al Qaeda at Taliban. Mataas din ang anti-American na sentimyento sa Pakistan.

Ayun sa report, nakatira si Bin ladin sa isang parte ng Abbottabad na tirahan ng mayayaman. Ang laki daw ng compound nina Bin ladin. Walong bahay daw ng ordinaryong bahay sa Amerika pwede magkasya sa compound na napaligiran ng napakataas na kongkretong bakod na umaabot sa 18 na piye ng sementong bakod . Mga $1 milyon ang halaga daw bahay na yun.

Ngunit nakakapagtaka na sa yaman ng nakatira doon, walang telepono at walang internet. Grabe daw ang security sa lugar nay un. Ang lahat na basura galing sa bahay na yun ay sinusunog at hindi iniiwan sa labas para kunin ng basurero.
Nagmukhang tanga naman ang Pakistani military kung hindi nila alam.

Siguro naman, marami ring asset ang U.S. na Pakistani kaya nila natuntun si Bin ladin. Kaya may mga bulok, ngunit meron ding maa-ayos.

Ipagdasal natin ang kapayapaan sa mundo.

    Kailangan talagang mag-ingat sapagkat ang mga diehards ni Bin Laden ay tiyak maghahasik ng lagim as a revenge by staging spate of suicide bombing. Dapat laging alerto, 24/7!

    Naggmukhang tangengot ang Pakistan authorities sa lightning raid na ginawa ng SEALs na sabi ng iba, the demise of Osama will seal Obama’s reelection. Dito ipinakita ng US na kapag ginusto nilang sugurin ang isang target sa ibang bansa, walang gobe-gobyerno sa nasabing bansa as in the case of Pakistan.

  2. joeseg - May 4, 2011 6:26 am

    Walang masuutan ang Pakistani government sa mga tuligsa at puna sa pangyayaring sa kanilang bansa pala nagtatago si Osama Bin Laden sa loob ng 5 years na. Maraming nagdududa.
    As reported in a news online, suspicions were also aired in many Pakistan’s media and on the street Tuesday.

    “That house was obviously a suspicious one,” said Jahangir Khan, who was buying a newspaper in Abbottabad. “Either it was a complete failure of our intelligence agencies or they were involved in this affair.”

  3. abc - May 4, 2011 7:16 am

    Relisyoso si Osama, sana nga hindi ito awayan ng relihiyon, sa kagustuhang sa kanya ang magiging pinakamalaking relihiyon sa buong mundo.

    Pulitiko si Obama, sana nga hindi awayan ito dahil sa “politics”, sa kagustuhang may impluwensiya siya sa bawat desisyon ng mga bansa.

    Sana nga… simpleng krimen lang ang nangyari. Pumatay ka noong 911, dapat managot ka sa batas. Batas nino? Batas na sinusunod ni Obama? O batas sa Koran na sinusunod ni Osama? Ay yay yay.

    Sabi nga, tuloy ang ingat… ipagdasal at ituro pa rin natin ang kapayapaan sa mundo.

    Mabigat ang ikot ng mundo sa gitnang silangan. Sa kabila ay sinisipa na ang mga diktador at pamilyang naghahari sa maraming bansa doon, ngayon naman ay itinutulak na ang mga grupong terorista na lumabas at lumaban ng harapan.

    Delikadong timpla yan dahil gaya ng nangyari sa Iraq, itinaob ang diktador ng isang bansang hindi naman maka-terorista, pero ngayon ay pinasok na sila ng mga mujahideen. Bata si Mubarak ng Kano, ngayon nangangamba sila baka radical Islamist ang kapalit. Ganun din sa Tunisia, Yemen, at mga bansa sa North Africa.

    Pagkatapos kalingain ng Kano, inilalaglag ngayon.

    Think Marcos, Duvalier, Suharto.

    WASHINGTON – The top staffer for the Senate Indian Affairs Committee is objecting to the U.S. military’s use of the code name “Geronimo” for Osama bin Laden during the raid that killed the al-Qaida leader. -yahoo news

    Galit ang mga Injuns! Oo nga naman, bakit Geronimo si Usama? :)

  7. joeseg - May 5, 2011 3:10 am

    Parang eksena rin sa Pinas itong pagkakapatay kay OBL. Iba-iba ang statements na nanggaling sa White House, conflicting version, parang hindi muna sila nag-usap. Tapos, maraming question kung bakit hindi ipakita ang picture ni OBL, bakit inilibing agad at sa dagat pa, bakit Geronimo ang code name, bakit hindi binaril agad eh hindi pala armado si OBL, etc., etc.

    Tama ang desisyon na huwag nang ipakita ang photo ng dead OBL dahil dun sa mga followers ni OBL, tiyak sasabihing fake o photoshopped yun. Dun naman sa nagbabanta na maghihigante sa pagkamatay ni OBL, nakalimutan yata nilang almost 3,000 ang namatay dun lang sa Twin Towers sa kanyang kagagawan.

  8. Ellen - May 5, 2011 3:57 am

    But I have a suspicion the Pakistan government was not completely isolated in this operation. But they would rather have it seen as a purely American operation at the risk of looking stupid or an accomplice of bin Ladin for fear of a backlash among their people.

    Many Pakistanis are sympathetic to bin Ladin’s cause and anti-American sentiments among them are high.

    The Talibans have struck in the capital city of Islamabad and inside the military camp in Rawalpindi.

    Sabi siguro ng Pakistani leadership, hindi na bale mukhang tanga, kaysa to be seen as taking an active role in the killing of someone looked up to among Pakistanis.

  9. dinah-pinoy - May 5, 2011 8:02 am

    Remember 9/11, never forget. A lot of innocent human beings including Filipinos perished that day. Replay in your head images of people leaping to their death.

    IMHO, this targeted killing is justified. Criminals have their days in court, but there’s no doubt in Bin Laden’s case. He has been taunting America, even gloating about 9/11.

  10. parasabayan - May 5, 2011 2:44 pm

    Pakiwari ko nga rin ganyan Ellen. Ayaw ng mga Pakistani na maging maka-Americano because they will suffer the brunt of the wrath of Osama’s followers.

  11. parasabayan - May 5, 2011 2:49 pm

    Marami pa ring mga galamay si Osama. But his death will definitely affect the terrorist groups. Kaya dapat tuloy ang pagiingat ng lahat.

  12. TonGuE-tWisTeD - May 5, 2011 5:17 pm

    I’m not so sure I will agree with you Ellen on the “participation” of Islamabad. Only last December, Hillary drew the ire of Pakistanis when she announced that their government isn’t doing much to help capture the Al-Qaeda leaders known to be living in Pakistan.

    Now even US Congressmen are irate that they are contemplating withdrawing Pakistan’s recently-approved aid package (military/economic) of a whopping TWENTY BILLION US DOLLARS if it is ever found out that the Islamabad government is complicit in hiding OBL for the last SIX YEARS! Again – twenty billion US Dollars! What does that make of us, the “Major non-NATO Ally”? Cheapipay na sidekicks?

    Next, Bali bomber Umar Patek and his Filipina wife were captured right in Abbottabad last January and though it was only admitted in March, intel services have been buzzing that Patek was out there in Abbottabad to get OBL’s support. Coincidence? Of course not. It even needed a tip from CIA for Pakistani police to arrest Patek and his wife.

    Let’s step back, that compound has been red-flagged much earlier – seven years ago to be exact – during its construction. Pakistan intel service, ISI, raided the site in search of Faraj Al-Libi, Al-Qaeda’s #3 man but missed him.

    Despite the site being a marked Al-Qaeda safehouse, ISI has not suspected it to be OBL’s hideout for all of those six long years?

    Of course they had to hide OBL, or else the pouring in of US billion dollars would stop.

  13. TonGuE-tWisTeD - May 5, 2011 5:22 pm

    Further, Al-Qaeda has been bombing many areas in Pakistan especially military and police areas. Isn’t it suspicious why it hasn’t bombed the garrison town of Abbottabad?

  16. Mike - May 6, 2011 4:25 am

    I say it’s a good move on the part of Pres. Obama not allowing the dead OBL’s pics be shown to the public. He may have a different reason for not allowing it but my take is nakakapraning kaya yan para sa mga tiga suporta ni OBL. Parang di mo na rin pinayagan ang isang anak (terorista) na masilayan kahit sa huling sandali ang kanyang namayapang ama (OBL). Ni hindi man lang madalaw ng anak ang puntod ng ama dahil ipinatapon sa dagat.

  17. dinah-pinoy - May 6, 2011 10:24 am

    1. The Pakistanis knew OBL was there because…

    2. They put him there under house arrest at their WestPoint…”

    “3. They cut a deal with us: They would hold him there & stop him fr any more terror.

    4. But OBL prob f-ed up & started planning something…”

    “5. So Pakistan said, f*** it, he’s expendable, u guys can have him. And they looked the other way.”

    “6. No way do choppers fly in next door to army base and “WestPoint”, have firefight, blow up chopper, and no cops or Paki soldiers show up?”

    “7. Please! Pakistan just couldn’t be seen as participating with us. And please– the CIA didn’t know he was living there for 6 yrs?”

    “8. As long as he wasn’t conducting terror, OBL alive served a purpose. Someone should just fess up: The war industry needs fear to make $$”

    “9. And when he was no longer needed, or he was back to his old ways, he had to be taken out. WH, just say it: He was executed, period.”

    “10. Finally, when we put the Nazis on trial @ Nuremberg, it was right. It exposed their evil & it showed WE believe in a system of justice.”

    “My apologies 4 all the tweets. I just don’t think we’re being told the truth. I don’t think there’s a conspiracy, I’d just like the facts.”

    “Thanks 4 all the good feedback. I believe Obama will want the truth 2 be told. But the Pentagon has a history of putting out BS after BS…”

    “The Pentagon lied about the Jessica Lynch rescue & they really lied about Pat Tillman. They’ve already changed their OBL story 3x in 3days.”

    “I’ll leave w/ this: Where were OBL’s bodyguards during raid? There were 0. U don’t need bodygs when u live udr house arrest on a Pak army base.”

    America should stop claiming that they’re the good guys. Long before 9/11 the US been bombing villages and dumping their toxic wastes in third world countries causing deaths to thousands of innocent civilians. Pag sila naman ang tinira they cry foul. Terroristic acts FROM BOTH SIDES should be condemned.

    On a lighter note, ano kaya kung PNP Swat natin ang naatasan sa misyong sugurin ang lungga ni Osama?

    Al-Qaida vows revenge on United States Int’l terror group admits Osama bin Laden is dead—->Philippine Daily Inquirer
    CAIRO—Al-Qaida on Friday confirmed the killing of its leader Osama bin Laden and vowed vengeance, saying Americans’ “happiness will turn to sadness… Their blood will be mingled with their tears.”

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    As if their terrorisms are not executed un-provoked (like they always do especially in Israel), now comes a real excuse for them to carry out yet another diabolical task. The mission……………………… to avenge bin Laden’s death.
    They react as if the world has no right to get back at them after that fatal day in 9/11 and the countless “murders” of men, women, children, young and old, in despicable acts of terrorism they have inflicted all these years. A bloody conflict which these fucking muslim extremists started to begin with.
    Now that the world got its revenge against bin Laden, para bang kasalanan ng mundo kung magkakaroon ulit ng mga malawakang pagpatay. I say to hell with these exrtremists. If there’s a sniper’s code of “one shot, one kill”, why not apply this to all these murderous extremists with “one bomb, kill all” !!!

    Si Master Sgt. John Kabadoes ang nakabaril kay Osama. Kinakabahan, tensyonado, nataranta pagkakita sa mukha ni Osama, nakalabit ang gatilyo ng baril, end of the (other) story ang Osama.

    “Operation Before Sundown”, ang labi ni Osama sa dagat na nga niya inilibing, pinag piyestahan ng mga pating, masarap ngayon ang shark fin.

    Si sargento ay isang magiting na helicopter pilot, walang confetti, walang heroes welcome.

    As some news outlet reported; that helo was of the Stealth family, and the Seals had to destroy it but the tailend part wasn’t totally burnt thereby exposing it’s uniqueness.

    Agree with Ellen the Prime Minister and President of Pakistan, and high ranking officials of the Pakistani military knew about the raid; and all these protests are just a smokescreen. If you listened closely to Obama in his interview at CBS’s 60 Minutes Sunday night, he said the word “cooperation of Pakistan”. As of now, no media is zinging him on that. Pakistan is a Nuclear Power country, and the US will continue to provide the almost two billion dollars aid to them, divide it amongst themselves. Parang Pinas you say, exactly.

    “Further, Al-Qaeda has been bombing many areas in Pakistan especially military and police areas. Isn’t it suspicious why it hasn’t bombed the garrison town of Abbottabad?” – tt

    If we discuss this issue in layman’s term, that’s one of the reasons OBL’s compound became a suspect. So in August of 2010, once the CIA confirmed it was Bin Laden’s hangout; the monitoring started. The US had to positively ensure it was OBL. Tagalugin ko na. Asawa ng pinsan ko na retired sa Navy as data systems tech worked for Spawar (Space and Naval Warfare System’s Command) as a civilian GS12, retired na rin. Ang sabi nya noon pa which is very true, kung ang regular computer ay nagagamit ng mga users to use “google earth” and play with it, zoom on their towns and their houses; isipin na lang natin ang nagagawa ng very high tech, highly sophisticated gadgets ng Spawar. Ang dihins masabi ng US, puede nilang kodakin si OBL sa oras na lumabas siyang nagpapahangin o maupo sa labas, etc. Satellite monitoring and pinaka importante sa operation. Whew! medyo nahirapan ako sa tagalog. Sabihin na lang na apat na buwan na monitoring sa compound, apat na buwan din na preparacion sa assault WITH tulong sa Prime Minister and President. Just my take.

  29. tru blue - May 10, 2011 4:12 pm

    Don’t be misled by some news that Navy Seals are between 17 to 28 years old, it’s unlikely. Even if someone enlisted fraudently at age 17 for arguments sake, take into consideration three months of boot camp, and if you’re lucky to be selected for service school immediately, that’s another six months to a year of service school. Another year or two in the fleet and by that time you’re already 20.
    Besides, it’s conspicous Navy Seals are mostly recruited from source ratings such as the Weapons and Operations departments. I don’t know of anyone rooted out from the Mess Management corner or Engineering, it could happen with conversion to the source rating requirement.

    :-)

    Dahil sa mga conflicting reports sa pagkakapatay kay OBL, kathang isip ko lang si Master Sgt. JOHN kabaDOES. Dahil marunong humawak ng baril, magiting na piloto… it could happen na hinugot ang isang Master Sgt sa hanay ng mga Marines habang bumibili ng suka, or sa LAPD kaya hinugot?, kahit saang lupalop man.

    Ang daming tanong at speculations sa ginawa ng mga magigiting na navy seals kay OBL, kagaya ng pagtatanong sa mga nagawa ng PNP SWAT team natin.

    Mabigyan lang ng tamang training at high tech na gamit ang mga PNP SWAT team, magagawa din nila ang mga nagagawa ng navy seals.

    Hindi “bible truth”… hindi rin pa-intellectual… speculation ko lang na kabado si John kaya niya nabaril si OBL at hindi hinuli ng buhay. Bumagsak ang chopper dahil kay John. Pinagtatalunan pa nga ng mga kritiko kung dapat na inilibing sa dagat o sa lupa.

    “Tuloy ang ingat” ni John, target siya ngayon ng mga muslim extremists.

    Kahit na guniguni mo lang si Kabadoes, stay on the right path; even in the Marines, there’s no such rank as Master Sgt and nco’s can’t be pilots or co-pilots. However, the US Army and Coast Guard allow Warrant Officers (from the enlisted ranks) to become helo pilots. LAPD does not have any sarhento as a pilot either, none that I heard of, lieutenant is the starting rank. Siguro meron na, if he is up to the task but it’s kathang isip lang.

    What kind of toxic wastes and what third world country are dumping sites? – tru blue

    Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB) Oil-filled transformers and capacitors, banned by the Environmental Protection Agency of the US, were left as-is in many substations inside both Clark and Subic in hundreds, probably thousands of gallons. Being the exclusive distributors of top US brands Westinghouse and prior to that, Square-D, our company’s engineers confirmed from the serial numbers that those transformers contained PCB Oil coolant. PCB wouldn’t break down in nature for centuries, so a PCB spill in Subic could affect water, air, and soil up to as far as New York.

    Not sure if its the same in John Hay and Zamboanga. Pinoy NGOs e.g. Greenpeace Phils., protested with the Embassy but they insisted that collecting all those and disposing them elsewhere wasn’t part of the Bases Agreement.

    Not only PCB Oil, but Greenpeace also found some asbestos containing materials (ACM) in home and electrical insulation, etc.

    But what the heck, recent studies say 100% of pregnant Americans tested positive for toxic chemicals! No need for Bin Laden’s fans to spill blood to exact revenge, all they need is to supply them infidels with generous daily doses of perfume, nail polish, fabric conditioners, perfumed detergents, plasticizers for pills, toys, feminine wash, hairspray, sunblock, liquid soap, eyelid coloring, including the old but trustworthy vibrator and other sex toys.
