President Aquino's comparison of a single disgruntled ex-policeman with the team of determined terrorists in the Russian opera house is totally inappropriate.

The light manner he talked about this hostage killing case in front of TV left a strong unpleasant feeling in the viewers.

Mr. President, please wipe off your smile when people's lives were lost.

Aquino seems feel happy when he is in public talking about the hostage issue, he even smile in fornt of TV and infront of Chinese special commissioners, I wish Aquino get his ass to Beijing and Hongkong to explain everything, and mourning to the dead by crying all day.or, he better go to hell.

I'm ashamed of my own Government. You now know why many Filipinos choose to live elsewhere. It's not only about the incompetence and corruption. It is the failure to acknowledge mistakes. I have many Chinese friends from HK, Singapore. I could not face them because of shame.

The Philippine Government should restore the Death Penalty.

We, filipinos, know that no amount of apology can bring back the lives lost, and that no amount of words can justify the effete way our policemen has handled the crisis, but we all hope and pray that you will, in time, grant us forgiveness for what had happened. None of us filipinos wanted for that to happen, and we are all saddened as well. WE ARE VERY SORRY.

Kabayan, please stop with your corroded "crab mentality". You are not helping. If things turned bad, we either blame our government or lambast our country; but what have you done really for your country?

This is all a manifestation of the corruption here in the Philippines. Their was a worry about the newly elected president and if he was strong enough
and not just elected because of his parents. The world just got a picture in their head of the president hiding under his desk and asking if its all over yet. Later walking around the crime scene smiling and laughing shows he is not fit to lead.
This operation was all left up to a general santiago who is the most corrupt police person in the Philippines.

On the other hand the Fil police might have served unknowingly it may be, a bigger purpose by having been placed almost exclusively at the forefront of the blame stakes, as symptomatic of the usual goings-on in this region.

Given the inconceivability of circumstances being entirely unforseen, HK based tour operators, and acidental tourists alike, should make use of the cover afforded to really review future prospects, and make sensible decisions.

Kabayan, the world is judging all of us right now, not just our government or our president. the last thing we need is for a filipino to judge another filipino. we should unite. let us help redeem our country's lost glory. for after all, only us filipinos, can do it for ourselves, and no other else.

To the chinese people whom we have wronged, i deeply regret what had happened last week. again, we are sorry.
