News that matters, for and from a Filipino journalist covering the defense and police beats.

Feel free to read, comment, and share entries but please do give credit to the site and do not remove the tagline.

Fellow journalists, you all know the rules 🙂


Most of the stories are sourced from government, police, and military officials. The author, admittedly, is still challenged in terms of getting “the other side,” particularly the rebel groups.

Some stories may be late, not updated, not uploaded, or missed because of time constraint, the author’s beat assignment, geographical location, etc.

Entries here were done as fast as the author could and were not proofread. Please bear with the grammatical and typographical errors.

God, grant that my skill be honed as the sharpest blade
from which hurt comes not, but aid.
For, though pretty or festering the insides may be
it’s my job to let the doctors see. – the journalist
