Hostage Drama in the Philippines

My husband is planning to visit the Philippines either December or April of 2011. We are actually waiting for a good deal online and we are all set to go. Then, big news happened about the Hostage-Drama in the Philippines which ended 8 casualties of foreign nationals.

I am a Filipino and what happened was a total shock! The hostage taker is Rolando Mendoza who took a busload of Chinese nationals. We all witnessed the agonizing incident aired live on TV. Go to youtube if you want to know more about it. It was 12 hours of critical negotiations which ended tragically. Who should we blame?

I am sad that there were lives lost! I am disappointed why it took the negotiators 12 hours to negotiate. It seems that the police force who handled the hostage drama were incompetent! Weren't they? The negotiators mishandle the negotiation (so bad)!

Would the incident become a deterrent to visit Philippines? My husband said, it was an isolated case. He will still visit the Philippines sometime soon. You can see so many "ROLANDO MENDOZA" anywhere in the world! It was just an awakening for us Filipinos that shocking as it maybe, a Filipino was capable of such gruesome action.

It was truly an isolated incident!

My deepest sympathy and prayers to the family and friends of the victims. The Filipino all over the world condemn the action of Rolando Mendoza. We will never tolerate such an Evil Action driven by anger and bad decision!
