"The country is not worth dying for, sir, kung ang gobyerno natin ay hindi kami kayang protektahan," a grieving Philippine National Police-Special Action Force trooper told DILG Secretary Mar Roxas last Sunday, Februaty 1. Ouch.

When the very protectors of our country lose faith in their government, you know that things are at an all-time low. It's been 10 days since the Mamasapano Massacre, but we've yet to find out who's responsible for this epic loss of lives. In fact, the number of SMH moments continues to grow, from #NasaanAngPangulo to #NasaanSiPurisima.

But that's not the only new information, hate campaign, or just plain dumb news that have come out of the woodwork. Below are some more updates about this deflating incident.

The Good: MILF confirms that Marwan is indeed dead

The head of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front is corroborating reports that Malaysian terrorist Zulkifli Bin Hir (alias Marwan) was killed during the Mamasapano mission. “Ang intelligence po namin, yung target talaga, na merong kubo, nandun siya," MILF chairman Al Hajj Murad Ebrahim points out. "So nang paligiran ng mga SAF, nauna daw siyang bumaril. Pagkatapos ay nabaril nila at napatay nila.”

The Bad: SAF commandos seem to have lost their morale

President Noynoy Aquino talked to the members of the PNP-SAF last Friday as a way to comfort them on their loss. The commandos, however, stayed silent during the speech and did not make any comments despite P-Noy's prodding. “Hindi ako mahilig makinig sa sarili ko," he tells them. "Baka may gusto kayong sabihin, please feel free to speak up.” His question was met with silence. These men are going to need more than just a pep talk.

The Ugly: General Purisima is nowhere to be found

Suspended PNP Chief General Alan Purisima reportedly flew to Saipan amid claims of his alleged involvement in the Mamapasano fiasco. Senators Grace Poe and Teofisto Guingona III have already formed a commission to investigate the incident, which means the general is set to be summoned to a hearing soon. If proven to be the mastermind behind the mission, Purisima, who has yet to issue any statement, may be removed from service.

The Walang Kwenta: Kris Aquino unfollows her brother's bashers on Instagram

In the wake of the social media firestorm over her brother's absence at the arrival honors of the #Fallen44, Kris Aquino has unfollowed those who bashed the president on Instagram, including Judy Ann Santos, Ogie Alcasid, and Regine Velasquez. "Truth, I have friends who privately spoke to me about how they wished the president had done things differently," she wrote on her page. "We listened to each other, we may not agree but at least we listened."


Kris has since patched things up with Ogie and Regine, but the same cannot be said for Juday. Here's why:

Just saying... Obama knows his priorities...
