Gibo to netizens who oppose airstrikes: “What piece of property is worth the life of a single soldier”



Former Defense Secretary Gilber “Gibo” Teodoro Jr. explained why airstrikes are necessary to destroy the Maute Terrorist Group in Marawi City.

He defended the airstrikes conducted by the Philippine Air Force saying that the action of the military is a good strategy not only to neutralize targets but also to protect the troops in the ground.
“It also helps to end engagements quicker rather than prolonging fighting. It is a legitimate tool at the disposal of government forces when the engagement commander determines that its use is appropriate and reasonable given the level of the threat faced.”

According to him, the properties can surely be damaged by airstrikes, but the life of the soldiers battling the Maute Terrorist Group are more important than building that be rebuild.

“Damage to property is an unfortunate consequence not only of airstrikes but of any weapon, yet we must ask what piece of property is worth the life of a single soldier?”

He also urged the public to not condemn the actions of the military, but condemn the violence committed by the Maute Terrorist group.

“On the other hand the real menace is the fact that the Maute gang takes refuge in dwellings and other urban locations, use rocket propelled grenades without regard to surroundings, ieds, snipe at civilians, rob, pillage, murder, and terrorize! This is the threat faced. This is what must be condemned!"

    2. What do you want to do? Prolong the war that's harming the citizenry of where the war's currently on going?

      Do you think that scolding the terrorists, giving them a stern warning, and shaming them for their actions would make them stop?
      Do you think that rallies would make them stop?
      Freaking use your noggin, man.
      People are dying, and you have the audacity to talk about your political opinion? Are you even human, bro?

      If you have any bright ideas of how to deal with the Maute, then let's hear it.

    3. Emerson Nuval, you are damn right. Infrastructure can be rebuild but the life of the soldier once killed will be brought back.
      Gibo is a man of courage and inteligence.

  3. In a war, you use whatever available resources at your disposal to defend your territory. The Mautes prepared well months before and are entrenched in higher grounds. Without airstrikes, govt casualties is expected to be high hence the maximum force has to be employed!

  4. Most of the people who oppose and make noise have their own vested interest to destroy the president. Also they do not know how the war works. Thanks Gibo, you'r a legend.

  5. people will always form opinions and assumptions that is convenient for them. we have way too much democracy for own good. Whoever is in the military, just do what you got to do to safeguard our country and people. Let them whine until they die. Its a hell of a lot better than dying by a cowardly made bomb.

    1. What is really more important for you? An infrastructure that can rebuild anytime or a life of a soldier or even civilians who were murdered by those damn terrorists??? Tanong lang ha? Bakit kayong mga taga Luzon ang sobrang makareact regarding the martial law, and the moves of the president and the military to end the terrorism? Have you been here in mindanao? Bago kayo pumutak punta naman kaayo dito ng malaman nyo. We mindanaoans are full support for the martial law! You want to know the purpose? To secure the people from any terrorist attacks! Imbes na kondenahin nyo ang presidente at ang aksyon ng military mag-isip kayo ng paraan how to stop or even kill those terrorists! Dahil sa ginagawa ninyong mga taga Luzon (pagrarally)pinapalala nyo lang ang sitwasyon at binigyan ng another problema ang gobyerno! Tumulong di puro batikos! Naghihingalo ang Mindanao tapos kayo may gana pang magbatikos??? Kung kayo naman kaya ang gyerahin? Amo kaya gagawin nyo? Batikos ulit??? Tanga-tangahan lang! Makiuso!
