“If I have to hire the Gurkhas to help us fight the Abu Sayyaf, I am willing to do it,” statement of the President Rodrigo Duterte during a meeting with the national security officials and cabinet members last September 3, Saturday.

Gurkhas are Nepalese fighters which were trained for combat and were known to carry a Kukri which is their traditional weapon.

Gurkhas are known to be fearless supporting the British Army motto “Better to die than to be a coward.”

President Duterte expressed that if needed, Gurkhas could be helpful in fighting Abu Sayyaf, “You started this. I wanted to talk to you, but you leave me with no choice,” he said.

The meeting that lasted for 5 hours in Matina, Davao City was after the Roxas Night Market bombing last September 2, Friday, which resulted in 16 people dead and over 60 others injured.

Duterte asserted that he will to eradicate Abu Sayyaf and other terrorist groups which destroy the image of the country, “There’s no other option, these people are like germs which must be eliminated.”

After the bombing incident, Metro Manila is placed on a heightened alert status to secure the Metro better by deploying more troops for checkpoints.

According to AFP Brigadier General Roberto Domines due to what happened in Davao, there is a possibility that Metro Manila will be a target.

Furthermore, after the incident, Duterte also declared a “state of lawlessness” which only means that additional police and soldiers will be deployed to help set up more checkpoints.

The said declaration “is not martial law” and it is only to prevent or suppress lawless violence.
