    **Latest update: Summary – on 9 May 2017, the US Embassy in Manila advised its citizens it had received “credible information that terrorist groups may be planning to conduct kidnapping operations targeting foreign nationals in the areas of Palawan Province, Philippines, to include Puerto Princesa City, and the areas surrounding Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park”; you should carefully consider travel plans, and exercise heightened vigilance in these areas**
    Let's be careful out there G & G's

    Those guys are not exceptionally bright they might not even be exceptionally average.
    Recently the NPA have become more active. I was told there usual funding (aka keep quite and don't make waves allowance) which came from politicians has been cut off.
    Maybe these folks just need money or in the worst case a job.

    Maybe if the Pres offered them a big pay cheque and immunity and sent them to a certain reef island in dispute with a close neighbour to clean up the invaders it could kill two birds with one stone and then said Pres could safely plant his flag keeping everyone happy... :biggrin:

    Just returned from there April 12th---if they hit the Subterranean River, it is a "target rich environment" in the waiting area---tons of tourists, about a one hour wait from the time of arrival at the river's mouth to embarking on the small boat that goes thru the cave. They could have captured well over 100 tourist when we were there!
