CEBU CITY, Cebu, Philippines -- A suspected rebel was killed in a clash Sunday in Tubigon, Bohol with elements of the 1st Scout Ranger Battalion based in Carmen, Bohol under the command of former New People's Army captive Lt. Col. Noel Buan.

The Scout Ranger team was on a reconnaissance operation when it chanced upon some 20 armed men believed to be New People's Army (NPA) rebels in the boundaries of Sitio Macapan, Barangay Tan-awan and Sitio Kawasan, Barangay Ilijan Sur in Tubigon, Bohol shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday.

Mario Concha, 34, of Cabayugan, Calape died after the 45-minute gunfight that started at around midnight.

Central Command (Centcom) spokesperson Lt. Col. Jefferson Omandam said the manhunt operation continued until about 4 a.m. The suspected rebels were believed to belong to the Front 1 Central Visayas Regional Party Committee of the Communist Party of the Philippines-NPA.

Omandam said the Scout Rangers also recovered an M-14 Armalite rifle and a binocular from the site.

M/Sgt.  Narcisco Tabañag Jr. of the Civil Relations Group(CRG) of the AFP in Bohol, said Buan did not actually join in the operation as earlier reported. He said Lt. Magtanggol Panopio, team leader of the 2nd Scout Ranger Company of the 1st Scout Ranger, led the patrol.

Omandam said Buan's men were conducting a strike reconnaissance operation when they encountered a group of about 20 communist rebels.

"They simply scampered away to different directions after the encounter," Omandam said in mixed Cebuano and English.

Go, Col. Buan, go. Your first star has already been minted. The laurel leaves have been wooven to fit your head, and the country is awaiting to crown its hero. Your story is one great paragraph amid the chapters of scandal that beset the AFP in the book of the Republic of the Philippines.
PN according to Manokski:

PAF according to Ramon J. Farolan:
"we are now basically a helicopter fleet"
PA according to drkula
"it is better to talk forever than fight forever"

So they were equipped with night vision goggles?

The Scout Rangers also recovered an M-14 Armalite rifle and a binocular from the site

How many times have I read in Philippine newspapers that a M-14 is also an Armalite, or are they right?

It should be interesting to find out if the binocular is a civilian type that the NPA just bought from a sports store or collected as a revolutionary tax from a Chinese businessman or an AFP issue.

Most reporters have no idea about weapons which is why they can't write a decent pro-gun story or even a story with armaments invilved.

I've seen "shotgun" and "Armalite" used interchangeably in one article. People think there were "tanks" used in Edsa 1....

The M-14 Armalite is my favourite crack up.  :lol:

Someone should take these guys down to Crame or Aguinaldo to be given weapons training and familiarization.

“The fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts individuals only insofar as their interests coincide with those of the State. Fascism is opposed to classical liberalism that denies the State in the name of the individual. Fascism reasserts the rights of the State as expressing the real essence of the individual. The maxim that society exists only for the well-being and freedom of the individuals composing it does not seem to conform with nature's plans. If classical liberalism spells individualism, then fascism spells government.  — Benito Mussolini, Fascism: Doctrine & Institutions, 1935

RDC, you can really see how big the difference between the Defense correspondent corps here in the Philippines and in the Pentagon?

only in the Philippines can you see the OV-10s called "fighter jets" and the Simba wheeled APC called "tanks"...  :lol:  :lol:

Maybe because of the sorry-state of our armed forces, calling the OV-10s as "fighter jets" and the APCs as "tanks" would give them "more teeth".   :cry:

Para naman high-tech pakinggan, para sa pangkarinawang mamamyan na mababasa yan sa pahayagan, mag mumukhang 'capable' ang ating AFP. Parang noon na label na warship yun bagong "Cyclone class patrol ship" kulang na lang sabihin nila na destroyer or frigate.

I think the Tora-Toras are still being used as a trainer. As for the F-5, still grounded?

They were sold in the open market a long time ago. A private collector in Australia got one but most of them ended up in the United States, that's as far as I can recall from Manokski's posts, eons ago.
