These motherless scoundrels (when I say motherless scoundrels, I mean terrorists) love birthday surprises. Strange and sick.
I have no doubt that yesterday’s bus bombing at EDSA was a terrorist attack (besides, the police already confirmed that an improvised explosive device destroyed the bus and the innocent civilians it was carrying). And what “perfect” timing: the 78th birth anniversary of PNoy’s mom.
MANILA, Philippines—“Who is responsible? At this point all we can say is speculation,” President Benigno Aquino III said Tuesday night as he also disclosed that all intelligence agencies were in the process of identifying those behind the EDSA bombing that killed four (actually, the death toll climbed to five already when one of the victims succumbed to blast wounds at a hospital this morning —Pepito—), two instantly, and injured 14 others.
The bomb placed under the seat in the middle of a passenger bus driven by a man ironically named Maximo Peligro went off just before 2 p.m. on Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA) near the north gate of the upscale Forbes Park subdivision in Makati City.
The blast blew a huge hole on the right side of the northbound Newman Goldliner plying the Baclaran-SM Fairview route.
Makati Mayor Junjun Binay said the explosion was so powerful that it punched a hole in a nearby concrete fence.
“It appears that it was a big bomb that exploded but we’re still determining what kind of bomb,” said the Makati police chief, Senior Supt. Froilan Bonifacio.
The explosion shattered the windows of the air-conditioned bus (Plate No. TXJ-710), which was approaching the loading bay on EDSA and Metro Rail Transit station on Gil Puyat (formerly Buendía) Avenue.
Police said the sixth row on the right side of the bus sustained massive damage.
Remember that more than a decade ago, motherless scoundrels from the South (when I say motherless scoundrels from the South, I mean the Abu Sayyaf) beheaded two of their helpless hostages as a “birthday gift” to then President Erap. Downright sick.
Oh yeah, I accuse (besides, they also bombed a bus near the same area in 2005).
Inquirer.net provides more details about this cowardly act. Like all of you, all I can do is speculate. Es fácil hacer acusaciones, pero nunca ha sido fácil destruir a estos terroristas del sur.
