Not really against Sabah

Narciso M. Reyes Jr. proposed that, for several reasons, it is pointless for us to pursue our claim to Sabah.

The dollars and sense of it

By

At no time since its foundation in the 15th century has the Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo been so much in the news.

The lies that bind us

By

At the height of the running gunbattle between the Malaysian forces and the so-called “Royal Army” (which in a few days became the “Royal Security Forces,” but which Malaysia labeled simply as “the intruders”), there was one, among the dispatches we received from our ground sources, that I thought struck at the very core of the senselessness of it all. “Both sides are lying, their statements in their press conferences are mostly lies,” the messenger sounded quite exasperated. He was referring to Jamalul Kiram III and his spokespersons, and to the Malaysian officials.

Paradox: Malaysia as mediator between gov’t and MILF

To Aquino: ‘Ano ba yan!’ (What is this)

President Aquino’s handling of the Sabah crisis reflects his political immaturity and social insensibility. First he tells the followers of Sultan Jamalul Kiram III to drop their guns, go back to Tawi-Tawi… and be arrested. Joke? Then he tells them to stop the aggression in order to save lives.

Aquino’s dismal handling of Sabah crisis

President Benigno Aquino’s handling of the Sabah situation has been dismal. First of all, how could a President lose a letter from a sultan? Was it really lost, or it’s just that President Aquino doesn’t care enough about it? But that was just the first error—everything that happened and has been happening after that just aggravated the crisis, and this is simply not acceptable.

Scary

By

AP reported it objectively, telling it from both sides. “In Manila, Jamalul Kiram III told reporters that he was worried the violence in Sabah might spread because many Filipinos are upset by the killing of their compatriots in Lahad Datu. His daughter, Jacel, who is a sultanate princess, stressed the sultanate would never back down from its struggle to reclaim Sabah. ‘This concerns honor above life’.”

Who owns Sulu?

By

In what appeared to be an impromptu interview, President Aquino last Thursday spoke of his apprehensions over the tense situation that has developed in the wake of Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III’s decision to send his “royal army” to reclaim Sabah as part of the Sulu “homeland.” Asked about his position on the country’s dormant claim to sovereignty over Sabah, the President deftly avoided making any explicit statement on the issue, saying that his Cabinet was still compiling the data and studying the documents.
