Also, you can't blame in on immigrants.

They're still immigrants, they came there in the 14 century.

The very name "Mayflower" is un-American. No good honest bear-wrestling all-American woodsman would be caught dead owning a boat called that.

At a bus terminal in Jakarta, Indonesia, two men blew themselves up using pressure cooker bombs filled with aluminum shrapnel. 5 people are dead, including the two attackers.
Their target appears to have been the patrolling police officers. Three of the dead are police officers. a further 6 police officers and 5 random pedestrians were injured.
Police assumes the attackers came from the Jemaah Anshorut Daulah group, which symphatizes with IS.
The attack was carried out in two parts. After the first man blew himself up, the second bomber hid and waited until police had come running to the scene, waiting for the best moment to strike.

IS is stepping up their operations in this region, it seems. They are on the back foot in the Middle East, but their brand is still inspiring attacks worldwide.

Blame the British for the name. Besides, the pilgrims didn't even own the boat in the first place.

It seems there's foreign fighters amongst the insurgents in Marawi. Spokesman for the Justice department, Jose Calida, in a pressconference today:
"What is happening in Mindanao is no longer considered an insurgence by Philippine citizens. It has turned into an invasion of foreign terrorists listening to the trumpets of IS".

Philippine troops are still trying to liberate the city, supported by armoured vehicles and helicopters equipped with rocket launchers.
Thousands of people have fled the violence. Fighting has killed at least 44 persons, of whom 31 terrorists, and 11 federal soldiers. There's no info at all on civilian casualties.

EDIT: perhaps Duterte is regretting now that he shoo'd the US forces off the island.

Worth keeping in mind, Indonesia actually had this exact problem before IS was even a thing

Whoopsie. Almost like ditching the Pax Americana is a mistake.

Hopefully they can clear the city without completely destroying it.

This post likely did not make me any happier, tougher, smarter, or richer. Probably not a good usage of limited time and effort.

The more I read, the more awesome this Duterte guy sounds.

Crime in Phillippines is out of control.
Elected on his rabid anti-crime stance, especially when it comes to drugs.
Fucking slaughters these savage cartel fucks.
Currently in the process of tackling big banks and rich tax dodgers, while fighting off their terrorist puppets.
Consistently sticks it to the completely corrupt political system that surrounds him.

Only way he could be better is if he started offering free helicopter rides.

I hope you being sarcastic. The man is responsible for thousands of deaths of which many were definitely not deserving of death. Mass murder is never the answer.
