    I don’t believe the news that the Sultan of Sulu has been defeated…I will just believe them if they have presented bodies of the casualties of the Royal Army….So many question that will be raised….Where are the bodies of those shot, is there any captured warmed bodies…where is the leader, did they captured Raha Muda Kiram…you Malaysian are fooling us….tell it to the Marines…

      we are currently interrogating and torturing him…so we can not give out any information. in case he dies while we were torturing him. we will just announce his body was obliterated during the airstrike.

      so much win eh? hahahaha! Victory for the Malays!

    The Malaysian must know that the Tausug fighters are one of the best fighters in the world….

      If the Tausug is the best fighter why sultanate army was defeated on friday (01/03/2013) attacked by Malaysian soldier?

    Kahit AFP walang magawa sa mga Tausug. Kaya naibigay sa mga Tausug ang Sabah dahil sa kanilang pakikidigma sa kalaban ng Brunei.
