MILF Rebels Want To Keep Guns
The average American guy steeped in popular culture is probably thinking this.
Unfortunately, the MILF rebels that the headline refers to are these guys.
WTF?! Those aren't MILFs. Actually they are. They are from the Moro Islamic Liberation Front which is fighting in the southern Philippines.
From the article:
SULTAN KUDARAT, Philippines – After watching two of his brothers die during four decades of fighting in the southern Philippines, Muslim rebel Abdulhamid Ganalan feels a planned peace deal could be surrender.The moral of the story is that headlines can be misleading and that fantasies are just that - fantasies.
Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) leaders are set to sign an accord with the government on Monday that will aim to end the rebellion by 2016, but the guerrilla said he and his subordinates did not want to give up their arms.
"I will not agree. That is like full surrender," Ganalan told AFP from inside Camp Darapanan, the MILF's administrative headquarters, when asked whether he would lay down his weapons as part of a peace accord.
