MILF did not provoke military air strikes — CHR

MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Human Rights’ initial investigation into the deaths of six civilians in an aerial attack by Philippine Air Force planes in Datu Piang, Maguindanao, last August 15 showed the attack was not provoked by members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, the commission’s head said Saturday.

This contradicted the military’s claim that the MILF fired at their plane, an SF-260, leading the plane’s pilot to fire back, killing the civilians. Earlier reports said helicopter gun ships were also involved in the attack. >>>>>

It seems that ‘democracies’ around the world have the greatest public-relations campaigns, post tragedies, than the opposing forces; and somehow effectively calm down attacks against them — while they inching away from culpability in the eyes of the masses.  More disturbingly, it also allows the oppressors to further encroach, and “justifiably so.” The fact that the mainstream media helps them with this, by reporting less fact and more hype for the ‘official version’ makes them conspirators to these war crimes.
