Following the death of 15 soldiers in a clash last Monday in Patikul, Sulu against heavy-armored Abu Sayaff, the government decided to be full-force against the notorious bandits. Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella announced that the government will be conduct an all-out war in Sulu and added 5 more battalions which is equivalent to 2,500 soldiers who will be in Sulu alone.
"President is focused on making sure that the threat from Abu Sayaff should be terminated as soon as possible."Abella said. According to the President, the country is ready and has all the resources to annihilate the terrorists.
With that, this post went extremely viral as a soldier named Arthur Malleguez Dumalagan posted a photo of him and his colleagues ready to fight in Sulu with a heart-melting caption. He said:
"Jolo, Sulu here we come,
This is our chance, many are willing but few are chosen to participate the war against terrorism. Many have already done their part but never have a proud story to tell.
We maybe coming home flag on top of our metal casket, rest assured we already crushed the enemy and send them all to hell before we give ours...."
