The Luminous FB page of Attys. Trixie Cruz-Angeles and Ahmed Paglinawan posted a brief but straight to the point appeal to the retired PNP and AFP generals who earlier produced a letter urging national leaders to unite amid the territorial dispute with the mighty China in the South China Sea or the WPS.
“Minamahal naming mga heneral na dumadaing sa isyu ng South China Sea,” Atty. Trixie opened the brief open letter to the retired generals with the usual salutation.
Without further adieu, Atty. Trixie reminded the retired generals that we have yet to take care of the local terrorist groups which they have been fighting for a long time.
“Hindi pa po tayo tapos sa mga teroristang grupo dito sa bayan. Matagal nyo po itong nilabanan, kilala nyo po sila.”
If it’s not too much to ask, Atty. Trixie wants all local terrorists groups eliminated first before we open another war front outside the country?
“Kung pwede, ubusin po natin ang lokal nating mga kaaway, bago tayo maghanap ng bagong gulo sa labas?”
“Baka sakali lang naman…” Atty. Trixie wrote.

Commenting on the thread, one netizen slammed the retired generals for their audacity to egg the Duterte admin to start a war against a foreign country when they cannot even end decades-old rebellion in our own backyard. “Ang lakas ng loob maghamon ng gyera sa ibang bansa eh ang ilang dekadang rebelyon na dapat sila ang sumupil sa ating bansa ay hanggan ngayon andyan pa din nanggugulo. Ika nga bago ka mamintas sa dumi ng bakuran ng iba baka puede unahin mo muna linisin sarili mong kapaligiran. Huwad na kawal ng bayan!”
To the General’s concerned you was given all the opportunity to make a difference during your tenure, compensated a lot by the Filipino people and yet nothing happened. Keep your mouth shut and just stay retired.
This netizen told the retired generals to shut up because they had the chances when they were in active and yet they did not do something about the problem.“To the General’s concerned you was given all the opportunity to make a difference during your tenure, compensated a lot by the Filipino people and yet nothing happened.
