Columnist slams Yellow logic: "This is the sort of stupidly partisan, fake pro-soldier bullshit"

Manila Standard columnist Jojo Robles expressed his sentiments over the claims of the Yellow camp that the rising number of deaths of government soldiers are reflective of a failing leadership.

Robles labels the claims as “stupidly partisan, fake pro-soldier bullshit” that the Yellows have been building up to destabilize the image of the Duterte administration.

The columnist explained the fault in the logic by contrasting how the Mamasapano massacre was and the Marawi siege is handled.

The fault would fall on the leader if, like in Mamasapano, the soldiers were sent to “initiate the battle”, Robles explained.

Another example he cited was if the leader abandoned his troops during the clash to attend to other trivial matters, which also happened in Mamasapano.

Robles emphasized that these two faults are not present in the current leadership. The link between soldier deaths and failure of leadership cannot be established in how the Duterte administration is handling the Marawi situation.

However, the columnist pointed out that the link is evident during the Aquino presidency and how the Yellow government handled the Mamasapano situation which resulted to 44 government troops dead, and also the al-Barka clash that resulted to 19 government soldiers dead.

Robles argued that even if the Yellows seem like they are siding with the military, it is a “partisan agenda” guised as a statement of support.

In his full post on Facebook, Robles said,

"There can be no other conclusion," harrumphed the Yellow lawyer. "The more our soldiers die, the more our leadership fails."

This is the sort of stupidly partisan, fake pro-soldier bullshit you get these days from the political opposition. But let's dive into this statement before some people actually think it makes sense, why don't we?

It doesn't make any sense, of course. How can terrorists killing our soldiers be the fault of our leadership? If the leadership sent the soldiers to initiate the battle (say, like in Mamasapano, where the motive was also reward money), you could fault the leaders.

If the leadership left behind our troops after accomplishing the mission to secure a reward and to do the bidding of another country (Mamasapano again), you could fault the leadership. You see neither of these happening in Marawi.

Again, what is the alternative to doing what needs to be done in Marawi? Talk peace with terrorists? Even a Yellow as stupid as Risa Hontiveros will not go that far, though she almost did, by saying there was no rebellion going on.

There is no causality in the death of our soldiers and the failure of leadership, unless we are talking about the previous administration (al-Barka and again, Mamasapano). Our soldiers are getting all the support they need and more. They are not being left behind (Mamasapano) or berated for doing their job (al-Barka).

It's just the faux-patriotic (and totally Yellow) who will blame the government while pretending to support our troops. Dear lawyer, examine your statement.

Better yet, examine your conscience. You are not supporting our troops; you are pushing your partisan agenda at a time when that is the last thing that this country needs."
