"Makati City Bombing Brings Abu Sayyaf Terrorism to Manila"
Source: https://www.refworld.org/docid/4d5a460a2.html
Questions:
1. What is the motive or intention of the terror attack?
According to the news article, due to the previous attack in Mindanao that led for AFP to do
operations in the area, the motive or intention of Abu Sayaff for attacking in Metro Manila particularly in
Makati City may have been to divert the attention of the AFP from its ongoing operations against them
in the island province of Basilan and elsewhere in Mindanao.
2. Do you think the attack will satisfy their cause/motive?
I don't think so. After the attack incident, the attention of the AFP was not diverted nor confused
but rather they deployed more forces in different area of the country, strengthen the security in Metro
Manila, asking the Philippine Coast Guard to make sure that the security measures in different piers will
be tighter, and continuing the operations in Mindanao that led for the Philippine National Police Special
Action Force (SAF) killed a high value target in an operation in rural Sulu Province.
3. How do you think should the government respond to such attack?
The government should not take it easy and definitely should not tolerate such heinous act as it
may put the life of many people in danger. The government should do their best to solve the problem of
terrorism in the country and if it is possible, the government should have peaceful talks to the terrorist
to surrender themselves, and if it is not possible, the government should deploy more forces in different
areas in the country where the terrorism most likely to occur. The government should respond with it
seriously and should apprehend the terrorists in the country.
