Philippine troops battle rampaging MILFs
It's true, believe us...
Ok, we apologise: Not only has this story got no IT angle, but it's not even a story at all, just a feeble excuse to run an extravagantly silly headline.
However, the headline is actually factually correct, since Philippine troops are indeed battling separatist rebel members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front in the southern Philippines.
The whole thing's a bit of a mess, with the government having agreed to expand the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, only for the country's Supreme Court to block the deal "after Christian communities argued it would increase sectarian divisions".
There's the full story here at the BBC, and we'd like to conclude by apologising once again for finding rampaging MILFs just too tempting... ®

Hi Mark. I agree. I'm closing this thread now. Hope you're OK there.
Not quite so funny....
Whilst you may have a chuckle over the abbreviation "MILF" from the safety of your desks in London, Birmingham and Manchester, for those of us expats living and working here in the Philippines, it's no laughing matter. In fact, as the Philippines Government has stated that it will no longer be signing the agreement which gives the Muslims an enhanced autonomous region and instead wishes to renegotiate, the current unrest could likely be escalated into all-out war.
A day or two ago, a bus travelling from Zamboanga to Cagayan De Oro on Mindanao was ambushed by a MILF patrol and almost all its passengers - all civilians - were executed; only four, including the driver, managed to escape.
So please, a little sensitivity!
how rude, yet strangly arousing.
HAHAHAHA Full "Lego re-enactment"... God that one brought a tear...
