Okay, the news reports on this are just plain weird. 32 dead. ISIS takes credit. The assailant sets himself on fire to avoid capture. But the police say that it was not a terrorist attack and that the assailant was just trying to steal poker chips from the casino. They say that most of the fatalities were from the fire.

So was this really a terrorist attack that the Duterte government is trying to discredit, or was this the mother of all botched robberies? I'm going for the former.

Exactly re: weird. That's hard to just skim thru, you have to study that recounting in order to make heads or tails of everything that went down.

Not giving them the attention they want would be what I'm thinking.

this is not a terrorist attack. the perpetrator is gambling addict that has big debt. this person also worked for the philippine government before. his name is jessie carlos.

Jesus. You're either due for a karmic payoff, or you're in the middle of one.
