It is a personal knowledge that the late Agbimuddin Kiram is way too old and sickly since 2005 to lead the Sabah Standoff in Lahad Datu in 2013. However, he continues to inspire his group headed by his son, Datu Sayed. The group follows the no retreat or no surrender principle when it comes to Sabah Claim. It is totally voluntary and not all of them are Muslim. Some are Catholics. “Over my dead body” sort of mentality. The government has no choice but to support them despite the outcome because their existence is real. No one can kill their nationalistic spirit. The Lahad Datu casualties only multiply the Royal Army equipped with a vengeance.

Continue to Fight for Sabah
Sultan Jamalul Kiram III is the acknowledged leader of the Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo. The sultanate acquired Sabah as a prize for helping the Sultan of Brunei against his enemies that rebelled against his reign.It did not relinquish its sovereignty over Sabah and only leased the territory to the Briitish North Borneo Company starting in 1878. Sultan Jamalul died in 2013 but made his wish known to his wife and daughter; for Filipinos to continue to pursue Sabah. Whatever belongs to the Philippines must be returned.
The alleged Sabah Standoff leader as reported by mainstream media died in 2015. Kiram, also known as Datu Puing, died at his home at Barangay Tubig Indangan in the town of Simunul in Tawi-Tawi where he is ever since. He continues to inspire his men for the quest through the leadership of his son, Datu Sayed.
Lahad Datu Standoff
In February 2013, Kiram led a group of about 200 armed members of the Sultanate of Sulu to Lahad Datu, Sabah. Their intention is to go home and look for jobs. They pick up arms to defend themselves because they know that there’s resistance to their activity. It is a suicide mission to try to revive the sultanate’s claim to Sabah or now the Eastern Malaysian state. They call themselves the Royal Sultanate Forces. That caused the death of 60 people – 52 Filipinos and 8 Malaysian policemen. 6,000 Filipinos are forced to flee Sabah because of then president Noynoy Aquino’s betrayal. Datu Sayed who is speculated to carry out his father’s mission allegedly escaped.
President Benigno Aquino III considers the standoff a propaganda war. He maintained that the Philippines’ dormant claim to Sabah should not be resolved by taking up arms. The truth is, the Sultanate’s men are forced to take up their arms because of his incompetence. In actuality, Sultan Jamalul at first is against the mission but when Agbimuddin’s men carried out the plan, he supported them all the way. This is a very important trait of a leader – never to leave his men in battle. Sad to say, very unlike Pnoy. However, there’s hope in the President and Bongbong Marcos’ leadership when it comes to the Sabah Claim.
Malaysia’s Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah expresses his disappointment over America’s policy change. The U.S. made the ‘America First’ decision to dump the bipartisan trade policy. The new president says no’ to the TPP Agreement. TPP was a global and free trading key into America and South America. The Malaysians want their CPO (Crude Palm Oil) to go to the United States but they have to find alternatives after being rejected.

[VIDEO]: Dave from X22Report.com is back to talk about the actual situation between Us and China, the trade wars and what could happen in the future with the recent Trump actions. Also, he is going to talk about the first week of Trump and what to expect regarding the wall and its campaign promises.
The Malaysian government looks on the alternative that China is promoting, the RCEP. It is a bigger package than the TPP Agreement as it involves 16 countries, covering more than 800 million people. For now, Sabah puts its America and South America ambitions on hold and be watchful of the US President’s decision on global trading.
China and India Markets
Malaysia moves towards China now but it is nothing new as Malaysia is already one of the earliest ASEAN countries to enter into business with China.The other bigger market that they look into is India. They are actually selling more CPO to India compared to China. They are captured markets for a product from Sabah, the land they leased from the Sultanate of Sulu.
Sabah’s Agricultural Agenda
Sabah continues on with its industrial agenda, which is gas. The development of a second ammonia plant at that Sipitang Oil and Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP) in 2017 is ongoing. The project is estimated to cost between RM6 billion and RM8 billion. They expect a hefty return on their much bigger investment on a different chemical based downstream natural gas. That if they are lucky enough despite their invasion of Sabah that belongs to the Philippines.
Bongbong Marcos is the Hope for Avenging Merdeka and Lahad Datu
The late Ferdinand E. Marcos who launched operation Merdeka to claim back Sabah failed because of Ninoy Aquino’s connivance with the Malaysians that supported his presidential bid against Marcos. This betrayal is through the leftists or government rebels like the MILF, MILF, CPP and the NPA. They are separate factions from the Muslims of the Sultanate of Sulu. They have nothing to do with the Sabah Claim but demanded conditions favorable to the Malaysians in the Bangsamoro agreement like dropping its claim contrary to what the Sabah heirs aim for. Bongbong Marcos, the son of the late president is the hope for Filipinos to avenge Merdeka and Lahad Datu casualties and finally claim back Sabah.
Supporting the promise of Bongbong Marcos to push for the inclusion of a provision in the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) stating that the Philippines will not drop its claim on Sabah as a consequence of Malaysia’s role in the Mindanao peace talks, the president drops the hope for peace with CPP-NPA who has ties with the MNLF and MILF ever since the late Ninoy Aquino’s days who masterminded their collaboration.
The President goes out of his way just to cater to the demands of the MILF and MNLF with their communist enforcement arm, the CPP-NPA. The president already freed some of its leaders from prison but the rebels wanted all their 400 political prisoners to be freed as soon as possible. The president is not a dictator to do that because those prisoners have to go through the due process.
Cannot Tolerate Terrorism Acts
The president withdraws the government’s ceasefire with the communist insurgents. This is after a junior military officer was killed while two other soldiers were abducted by suspected New People’s Army (NPA) rebels while the ceasefire is still effective. Earlier the president appeals to these insurgents group including the MNLF and MILF not to give sanctuary to terrorists like the notorious Marwan that results to the SAF 44 massacre. If they fail to follow, they will be attacked by the military.
Communist leader Jose Ma. Sison and fugitive Moro leader Nur Misuari are both released by Cory Aquino from prison. Sison admits that Ninoy Aquino, Cory’s husband sought him out in 1967. In 1973, a commission created by the CPP-NPA founded the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDF or NDFP). It attempts to unify and coordinate various leftist groups.
The president intends to stake a fresh claim on Sabah after bilateral efforts are exhausted. Like Bongbong Marcos, he recognizes Sabah as a Sulu Sultanate territory. The Malaysians and their supported rebel groups in the Philippines should eat their heart out now. Digong’s all-out war pronouncement with the rebels is a sign that the Malaysians cannot hold his neck anymore through the arranged peace talks that the Malaysian government allegedly helped arranged. Do not expect to have peace with them in this generation, he firmly said.
The same as the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos’ quest for Sabah claim, the president vows to continue it through bilateral agreements first. However, that is changing due to the recent deportation reports of around 7,000 Filipinos from Sabah. In fact, operation Merdeka (Freedom), was hatched by Marcos’ armed forces. The uprising is supposedly the excuse for the Philippine military to invade Sabah, which is originally owned by the Philippines had declared to be part of its territory. At that time, the country’s military is more powerful than that of the Federation of Malaysia, founded only in 1963.

Operation Merdeka Destroyed by Mythical Jabidah Massacre
The so-called “Jabidah massacre” is the made-up murder story on Corregidor island on March 18, 1968, of allegedly 24 Muslim Tausug recruits trained by the military for Sabah claim attack. It is projected as an uprising among the ethnic group against the Malaysian government
Ninoy Aquino Used the Non-Existent Jabidah Massacre to Discredit Marcos
Then-senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, Jr., who aspires to replace Marcos as president debunked the allegation of a Jabidah Massacre from the very start. His statements on this are preserved in the records of the Senate as his privilege speech delivered March 28, 1968. That cannot be denied by his son, former president Noynoy Aquino.
Pnoy’s Ignorance on his Father’s Betrayal
The Jabidah myth is so successful that even President Benigno S. Aquino in his Bangsamoro Basic Law falsely compared the Mamasapano massacre of 44 police commandos to the nonexistent “Jabidah massacre.” His ignorance is a mockery to the fallen heroes of the nation. His incompetence actually caused their deaths as the commander-in-chief.
Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) used the false Jabidah allegation to trigger Muslim youth’s anger to rally their demands. The MNLF’s (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) Misuari also portrayed it as the collection of genocidal attacks against the Moros; to press that a Bangsamoro—an independent nation-state of the Moros is necessary. They currently put a stop on the ceasefire with government forces. This is after the president warns them that they will be pursued if they give refuge to terrorists. They are the players of Aquino’s lies and has nothing to do with the Sultanate of Sulu, the heir of Sabah.
The president of the Philippines is very firm upon assuming his post that Sabah belongs to the Philippines. The Sultanate of Sulu owns it, therefore it belongs to the country. This is the reason why the government is not encouraging Filipino deportees in Sabah to seek reconsideration with the Malaysian government.

Taking Care of 7,000 Refugees
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is preparing an “action plan” that would guide government assistance to 7,000 Filipinos who are expected to be deported from Sabah by February. Social Welfare Secretary Judy Taguiwalo said the deportees will be given basic aid, such as food and medical assistance, upon their return to the country.
Prepared to Talk with the Malaysia Prime Minister
The president is “prepared to discuss” the Philippines’ sovereign claims over Sabah but the issue was not raised during his bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Najib Razak. It turns out, it was not on the agenda. The government seems to avoid provocative measures and as much as possible, peaceful means are favored.
Filipinos to Malaysia
If Malaysia is sincere to participate in the government’s peace talks with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), security matters in the Sulu-Sulawesi Sea, counter-terrorism and the Philippines chairmanship of ASEAN in 2017 – Malaysia should return Sabah to the Philippines. Peace can never be attained if native Filipinos remain displaced. In fact, these returnees are not deportees. They are the new generations of the original settlers of the land.
Do not be Caught in Between Two Nations during Sabah Claim
These Filipinos being deported back to the Philippines do not need the mercy of the Malaysian government. They have all the rights to remain there but since the Malaysians dominate Sabah for the time being as the conqueror of the land, seek refuge first to where you belong. The president of the Philippines is making sure to aid your starting over. It is only a matter of time that Sabah claim resumes. Just remember the late President Marcos’ sacrifice and the betrayal of the Aquinos.
