The latest skirmish between the government troops and the rebels took place in Barangay Bugho in Pinabacdao town which resulted to the recovery of several firearms from the rebels, Lt. Col.Cerilo Balaoro, commanding officer of 87th IB, said. The soldiers learned on the presence of about 10

rebels in the area based on the information provided by some residents of the village, Balaoro added. The soldiers, led by Capt. Taguinay Agoy, went to the area which resulted to a firefight with the rebels who later withdrew after engaging them to a 15 minutes exchange of fire. to page 7

PALO, Leyte – Limit your children to two or stay poor, the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) advised minimum wage earners here in Eastern Visayas, the country’s third poorest region. Analyzing the first semester 2012 poverty statistics, NSCB Regional Head Evangeline Paran said the current wage structure in Region 8 limits family size to four for breadwinners to sustain households’ basic needs. In 2012, the monthly poverty threshold is P7,491, which is relatively higher than the P6,760

minimum monthly pay of an average worker. The threshold may be considered as the minimum income required or the expenditure necessary to meet the food requirements and other non-food basic needs. “A minimum wage earner in the region can support a family of at to page 3

Tacloban city workers to receive their anniversary bonuses

TACLOBAN CITYMembers of the city council approved a supplemental budget that would guarantee the release of anniversary bonus for city government workers. The council approved Supplemental Budget Number 4 containing an amount of P14 million during their regular ses-

sion last June 19, says incoming Vice Mayor Jerry “Sambo” Yaokasin. Last June 12,2012, the city government marked its 60 th founding anniversary with its workers hoping for the release of their anniversary bonuses. With the approval of the supplemental bonus, the city government employees would now be

happy after days of waiting for their bonuses, Yaokasin said. Historically, Tacloban became a chartered city when Speaker Daniel A. Romualdez sponsored a law for Tacloban to become a chartered city and by virtue of Republic Act (RA) 760 June 12, 1952 then President Elpidio Quirino signed RA 760

proclaiming Tacloban as a chartered city taking effect June 12, 1953. On the other hand, Vice Mayor-elect Yaokasin is hoping that they will a quorum next week in order for the out-going officials to have the opportunity to deliver their valedictory speeches. (RYAN GABRIEL L. ARCENAS)

4 persons apprehended, high-powered firearms seized

ORMOC CITY - Even if the election gun ban is already lifted, police authorities continue intensifying the OPLAN Paglalansag Omega, a campaign against Private Armed Groups and Loose Firearms. The efforts of CIDG operatives bore fruits after they captured four persons who possessed illegal high powered firearms and live ammunitions through a search warrant. Although the four arrested suspects were not the subject of the search but they were at the vicinity of the nipa hut believed to be a safe house of Espinosa armed group and owned by alias Kerwin Espinosa in Sitio Tinago, Brgy. Benolho, Albuera, Leyte.

Seized were short and long firearms at 4:30 a.m. of June 11. Ten single motorcycles were also impounded by the Highway Patrol Group. Kerwin Espinosa denied the allegations that he formed Espinosa armed group. Three search warrants were issued by Judge Alphinor C. Serrano of RTC 6, Bulwagan ng Katarungan, Tacloban City and simultaneously served. Subjects were houses in a small compound with high fence, with one owned by Kerwin’s father, Rolando Rosal Espinosa, another by Soperiano Diano a.k.a. Sopie and the last one not stated on the spot report. But subject Espinosa and Diano were not in their house and no items recovered. But a nipa hut is alleg-

edly owned by Kerwin that when searched resulted in the confiscation of high-powered firearms. The job was a result of joint operation conducted by the Special Operations Team, 8th Regional Criminal Investigation Division Unit Regional Public Safety Batallion, Norte Leyte Highway Patrol Group and the Albuera Police Station. Although there is no document that may prove Kerwin’s connection on the ownership of the confiscate items but based on surveillance of almost a month conducted by the CIDG, the confiscated firearms were established to be owned by Kerwin, a CIDG report stated. The arrested persons were Vincent Lun-

zaga Y Pepito, 28, jobless from Montealegre, Kananga, Leyte, Aldin Mago Y Suazo, 24, jobless, a native of Brgy. Carita, Cebu City and presently living in Brgy. Benolho, Albuera, Leyte, Norman Tojong Y Ablin, 18, jobless from Brgy. Macabug, Ormoc City and Ritchie Bactol Y Ygay, 28, driver of Bagong Buhay, Ormoc City. Confiscated were M-16 rifle, M-14 rifle, .762 mm AK 47, shot gun, hand grenades, Ingram sub machine gun and a silencer, Llama 9 mm Parabellum, hair wig, digital recorder for CCTV, numerous live ammunitions of different types, several magazines of different caliber and improvised tooters. In a phone interview, Kerwin, who is

currently detained in Ormoc BJMP, clarified his father’s house was found negative during the search and asserted the firearms planted. “Planted ra to kay ako ngalan sige buto sa gawas, parte anang giingon nga mag gawas-gawas ko sa jail, mag-derby ko, dili na tinuod,” he said. He also denied forming the Espinosa armed group and owning a hotel, a night club in the city and a real property in a nearby municipality. Although he confirmed knowledge that one AK 47 confiscated by the police was licensed and owned by a friend, he said it was there only for repair. For the allegations against Kerwin, he believed his name is being dragged to what

he said “pagdaut sa akong ngalan”. And he is planning to file administrative case against the police who conducted the search in Albuera. He added that the one of the three houses subjected for a search where the four arrested men were chanced upon is owned by a relative living abroad and under the watch of a caretaker. Asked if he is involved of a drug business, he said, “lisud na, dia naman gani ko sa sulod, magpakita sila ug ebidensiya”, Kerwin stated. And he denied his father is involved of any illegal activity.

Alleged ‘sex-for-flight’ modus exposed

TACLOBAN CITY-Migrant rights group Migrante on Thursday bared the alleged “sexfor-flight” modus operandi of some Philippine embassy and labor officials in Saudi Arabia to distressed Filipino women abroad who wanted to return to the country. John Leonard Monterona, vice-chairperson of Migrante and coordinator in Middle East and North Africa, disclosed the following information which, according to Monterona, are based on the alleged account provided by overseas Filipino workers OFW victims to Migrante officers in Saudi Arabia: • The embassy and labor official normally will ask an OFW ward at the Bahay Kalinga or Filipino Workers Resource Center (FWRC), a run away and distressed, if she has money to pay for her own airplane tickets, payment for penalties being an absconder, and payment to her sponsoremployer who usually ask a reimbursement of her deployment cost. • Seven out of 10 of the OFW ward as expected would answer on the negative having no money and being in dire need. Then the official, who is an alleged member of the syndicate operating inside the PH embassy/labor offices in the Middle East, will discreetly talk to the OFW ward to offer an ‘indecent proposal’ of having a prospective ‘client’ in exchange for cash. • During night time, the OFW ward will be fetched by either

the driver or any localhire staff of embassy and labor officials, as ringleaders in such ‘sex-forflight’ modus operandi. • Amount, per information direct from the OFW ward as victims of ‘sex-for-flight’ modus, ranges from 500 rials to 1,000 rials. Some very desperate OFW wards are allegedly accepting as low as 100 to 300 rials. As the issue has now been brought to the public and other concerned government agencies, Monterona urged other OFW victims of ‘sex-forflight’ to come out and get in touch with their officers in Saudi so they can assist them in filing formal complaints. “We will also try to arrange with the concerned authorities their security and safety and to protect their real names and identity,” Monterona added. Monterona also called on Pres. Benigno Aquino III , the Department of Foreign Affairs, and the Department of Labor and Employment to also immediately recall Philippine ambassador to Saudi Arabia Ezzadin Tago and the now Riyadh-based Labor Attache Adam Musa. According to Monterona, both allegedly failed to act on their respective official capacity as top Philippine officials in Saudi Arabia on the alleged sexual complaint lodged on August 2012 by a distressed woman OFW who have sought refuge at the Filipino Workers Resource Center (FWRC) run and manage by the PH embassy in AlKhobar, Saudi Arabia. “As we demand indepth investigation on the reported ‘sex for fly’

modus operandi at various Philippine diplomatic posts in the Middle East (Syria, Jordan, Kuwait, to include Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and Bahrain), which we believed, citing verbal complaints from OFWs as victims, was also a common knowledge among the Filipino Community in Saudi Arabia, an impartial probe is highly questionable if Amb. Tago and Labor Attache Musa will remain in their respective offices during the time frame of the investigation,” Monterona said in a statement to Leyte Samar Daily Express. Monterona added they will arrange to submit all related documentation and affidavits of alleged OFW victims of sexual abuses, harassment, “indecent proposals”, pimping, to DFA Sec. Albert del Rosario. “We have been exposing this for quite some time that there are embassy and labor officials in the Middle East pimping and forcing distressed OFWs into prostitution just to get money for sustenance and airfare.” “Philippine government’s higher ups are not just acting on it. We do hope this time they’ll conduct an honest to goodness investigation, gather evidences and eventually file appropriate criminal and administrative raps against the culprits. These corrupt and criminal officials should be immediately dismissed from their jobs… as they are only causing added misery to already abused and distressed OFWs temporarily seeking refuge at various shelters abroad,” said Monterona.

Opponents of Baybay mayor to continue their protests BAYBAY CITY-The political tensions of this city escalates as the group lead by United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) mayoralty candidate Marilou “Malot” Galenzoga staged indignation rallies to condemn the Comelec proclamation of the incumbent reelectionist Mayor Carmen Cari last May 14, 2013. Police officers interviewed disclosed that the rallies are polarizing the people and affecting the peace and order of this city.  The situation is volatile and rallies triggered shouting and street arguments between the supporters of both camps that may lead to physical injuries, the police officers added.   Galenzoga, who ran against Cari last May 13, 2013 midterm elections, in an interview with reporters here, claims that

she has the support of the people of this city. She added that the people of Baybay know very well that the last concluded elections were tainted with irregularities and the “proclamation of Mayor Cari was not legal as it was done in violations of election laws”   Comelec officer Susan Collamar, who was the chairman of the City Board of Canvassers during the recently-held midterm elections, said in an interview that Mayor Cari was proclaimed based on the result of the elections wherein she garnered 30,618 votes while Galenzoga got only 15,421 votes.   Collamar denied the allegations of Galenzoga saying that the elections in this city last May 13, 2013 was in order, generally peaceful, with no

According to NSCB, the poor refers to individuals and families whose incomes fall below the official poverty threshold. Pove r t y i nc i d e nc e among families in the region slightly increased

from 36.2% in 2009 to 37.2% 2012. Those living in extreme poverty increased from 16.9% to 17.3% in the same period. From the fifth poorest region in 2009, Eastern Visayas is the third poorest in 2012. Nearly half or 45.4% of the people in the region are living in poverty in the first semester last year, a slight increase from 43.8% in 2009.

untoward incidents reported. She added that the Comelec performed during the elections were all in accordance with law.  The rally last June 19 was attended by about 2,000 supporters of Galenzoga held in front of a local radio station where Collamar was to be interviewed. However, it was called off due to the presence of Galenzoga’s supporters.   The following day June 20 another rally was made in front of the City Hall with the support and attendance of Father Patrick Paraiso, a priest who hails from this city.  The police was on alert and fire trucks were stationed near the gate of the city hall. The indignation rally almost ignited a clash between the supporters of both camps.    Fr. Paraiso and Galenzoga told reporters that series of rallies may be conducted before the end of this month and a big rally is scheduled sometime in the first week of July.   Mayor Carmen Cari admitted in an interview that the rallies initiated by Galenzoga are affecting the peace and order and the economic activities of the city.

Protecting Sambawan reefs

T

he owner of the foreign vessel that hit a coral reef off the coast of Sambawan Islet in Biliran has agreed to pay for damages it caused due to the incident. The local government unit of Maripipi, Biliran said the boat MV Unicorn Logger of Wisdom Marine Lines, which was transporting 1,607 pieces of logs, inflicted greater damage on the corals, when it got stuck on the reef two weeks ago. As assessed by Philippine Coast Guard, 207 square meters of corals have been damaged by the vessel, with destroying some coral networks. Whatever the reason, that’s a huge tract of precious corals now destroyed. After the

accident in what is supposed to be a protected marine area, authorities should now be speeding up measures to prevent more ships from running aground in Sambawan. The Vietnamese officers and crew cannot point to bad weather as the reason for the grounding of their ship in waters off Biliran. The seawaters in Bilira is not that huge and surely it’s not impossible to intensify patrols around the reef. Buoys or other markers can also be installed to warn ships away from the reef. Sambawan is one of our protected sites; it must be protected properly.

Babaha na liwat! The heavy rain last Wednesday evening until near-dawn of Thursday sent floods in many places. Barangay 5 in Tacloban highly urbanized city wasn’t spared. Two hours after the rain began, floodwater kept rising after filling the shallow and narrow canal systems in and around the urban city barangay. The water was very dirty and black at first, yet a few men and women braved it as they did their usual evening promenades amidst the rain. By past 1 a.m., some plastic water containers floated until they were salvaged by dawn by their owners who left their home to fetch water from the pay-per-container barangay public faucet. Plasticized or cellophane bags and wrapper flowed

into the barangay as the floodwater continued to rise, but by the time the flood receded, they remained as smatters of garbage on the concrete interior road. In previous rainy weeks, flood level rose to no more than a foot high from the road surface. Last June 20 evening to midnight and the first dark morning hours of the following day, it rose to nearly three feet. The interior sala floor of the house where I some-

times sleep on weekends went under water. Since I was the only man present at that time, I was the only one who cared to scoop the unwanted water to the road outside, from 3 to 6 a.m.. That caused my limbs to strain and cramp, the resulting pain lasting until past 10 a.m. I learned soon that other houses elsewhere suffered a similar fate. A few days earlier,

many ground areas in Luzon submerged under floodwaters. The flood levels, though, had not been as high as they had been in many places in the country between 2009 and 2011. The damages had not been as costly. But that was already enough to make thinking heads actually, responsively and seriously thinking of long-lasting reliefs and of working fast 24/7. There are more rainpacking typhoons forecast to visit the Philippine islands until December this year. The Aquino administration doesn’t want the worst to come without the government and its people being adequately and sufficiently prepared. But more hands, heads, and cash are needed. In the process, more and more grafters and corrupt government men and women to weed out. to page 6

Praying with the heart WE are told that we should avoid praying like pagans, that is to say, just rattling and babbling words, multiplying them and making noise and a show of it, but actually not praying, that is to say, not conversing with God, not experiencing any enlightening and transformative effect, etc. It’s an old reminder that continues to be most timely, since we always have the very likely possibility of praying simply with our lips but not with our heart. This, sadly, is part of our human condition, a consequence of a nature weakened by sin, both original and personal. We also have to consider that our sin, if not corrected, tends to gather strength and create historical, cultural and social structures that can perpetuate sin in time, exerting bad influence on us. We need to be aware of this fact, and skillful in how to tackle this problem. We therefore have to arm our heart properly, wary of its delicate condition especially in its beginning stage, and of the many elements, usually subtle and tricky, that it has to contend with. Obviously, we have to understand our heart not simply in the biological or physical sense, but more importantly as the seat of our thoughts and intentions, our desires, dreams and of what make us excited or concerned. Our heart tends to be unstable at the beginning. Unless disciplined, trained and nourished properly, it can be quite flippy and capricious, going from one thing to another

without firm foundations and clear purpose. As the gospel tells us, the heart is where our treasure is. We need to ask what our treasure really is. Is God our true and most precious treasure or is it something else, like something material and worldly— money, fame, power, or just food and drink, fun and pleasure? We need to put more serious attention to the real needs and workings of our heart, so we can treat it properly. At the moment, we seem to take this responsibility for granted, allowing our heart to simply go anywhere, to get attached to what we consider would just come naturally. For this we need to study the doctrine of our faith, since it is there that we get the ultimate truths about ourselves, and not just passing facts. It’s faith that refers us to God our Creator, the one who designed us, who gave us our nature and the laws proper to us, and besides, who actually keeps us in existence and leads us to our proper end. Because of that, we need to develop a theological mind, that is to say, relying on faith first and foremost, before we make use of our common sense and the knowledge we derive from the sciences and arts. This latter knowledge need to be rooted

on faith, otherwise they can just lead us anywhere in some goose chase and can be highly dangerous. We have to disabuse ourselves from our proclivity to rely too much on common sense and our purely intellectual pursuits. We have to learn to pray from the heart, which also means that prayer should be second nature to us. As such, prayer becomes a constant activity. We can and should turn everything into prayer. Even our work and mundane affairs should be an occasion or even means of prayer also. We should end up praying as we breathe, and as our heart beats. Thus, St. Paul once said: “Pray without ceasing.” (1 Thes 5,17) This is no fantasy. This is no gratuitous claim. If we look at this matter more closely, we will discover that we are actually meant to pray, we have been wired and appropriately equipped for it. But neither is it forced on us, nor does it come to us automatically. It has to be willed, and we also need to be trained for it. With prayer, we keep our union with God, which can mean that we start to share his wisdom and his power. That’s why when we pray properly, we can somehow get to know what is right and wrong, what is fair and unfair, what is safe and dangerous. With prayer, we can find meaning in any situation we can be in, whether we are up or down. With it, we would know how to handle our weaknesses and resist the temptations around. With it, we put into the play the theological virtues of faith, hope and charity that practically comprise the essence of our true life, spiritual and supernatural.

The government’s intention to buy missiles is only one in the plan to modernize the military. It is the threat of the nations around our country that cause the plan to push through. However, different minds clashes as to its necessity during this period of economic difficulty. The budget of P75billion for the modernization may not be sufficient to have missiles that can counter-balance the military might of China. So, is it worth spending billions of pesos just to show to the neighboring countries we have weapons to retaliate? While the United Nations is trying its best to have peace all over the globe, we are preparing for war. Nationalist individuals have aired in the media their support for buying the missiles; which support is expected. On the other hand, the doves have different minds. They are for a peaceful solution. China or other countries around the Philippines will not risk invading any of the islands, because they have seen what happened to Iraq and Afghanistan’s devastation. Members of the United Nation, especially the Anglo-American world power, will not allow any invasion in our country after having been occupied by the Japanese Imperial Army in 1941-45. The Chinese perceived bullying is only part of their want to be noticed. They merely want to be always in the press. It is similar to a macho who wants to show others he is really a man by bullying others who cannot fight back. Figure out the North Koreans bullying their brother South Koreans, but knowing the Anglo-

American world power behind South Koreans, they cease the threat. Some nationalistic persons may sneer the US-Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty that dictated either the United States of America or the Republic of the Philippines were to be attacked by external party shall support each other. The Treaty in Article IV, thereof, states: “Each Party recognizes that an armed attack in the Pacific Area on either of the Parties would be dangerous to its own peace and safety and declares that it would act to meet the common dangers in accordance with its constitutional processes. Any such armed attack and all measures taken as a result thereof shall be immediately reported to the Security Council of the United Nations. Such measures shall be terminated when the Security Council has taken the measures necessary to restore and maintain international peace and security.” The effect of the attack on either nation shall be defended in accordance with Article V: “For the purpose of Article IV, an armed attack on either of the Parties is deemed to include an armed attack on the metropolitan territory of either of the Parties, or on the island territories under its jurisdiction in the Pacific or on its armed forces, public vessels or aircraft in the Pacific.” So, why use the P72billion for weapons while the United States of America has the superior fire power than China? Instead, use the money for improving health and poverty, as well as increasing the salary of the government employees to avoid brain drain. Pagasa Administrator

Nathaniel Servando may have not resigned if his salary is at par with the compensation Qatar is paying him. The billion pesos intended for weapons could be better used to establish factories to replace the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program for the 3,841,992 poor households covering 1,627 cities and municipalities. Their number is still within the poor, though the government has given dole. Many government hospitals are in need of medicines and physicians that the P72-billion can be more of great use. This piece may be one of the voices in the wilderness that cannot stop spending the P72-billion for military modernization, but this could serve as a reminder for all people that peace cannot be attained through human’s war. The war that will bring peace is prophesied in Revelation 16:14-16: “They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and perform signs, and they go forth to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty. ‘Look! I am coming as a thief. Happy is the one that stays awake and keeps his outer garments, that he may not walk naked and people look upon his shamefulness.’ And they gathered them together to the place that is called in Hebrew Har–Ma‧ged′on.” Recent worldwide events indicate nearness of fulfillment of the prophecy. However, do not be frightened because those who will die during Har-Mageddon or Armageddon “xxx a war that really will bring an end to human warfare. When that battle is over, people everywhere will view war as incomprehensible and repulsive. ‘Never again will they learn war.’—Isaiah 2:4, New American Standard Bible.

Sunday, 23 June 2013 from page 4 More of the numbers of these much needed items are urgently exigent as more barangay people will need to be taught, trained and mobilized to help or already start their own initiatives. These all, to be completed and done in a sufficient period of time in anticipation of that worst. Nobody, just nobody can say just when will that worst come and where will its heaviest impact be. All resources then must now be kept in stock now, all plans reviewed, all final plans approved without any further delay, all cash and materials released, and all work done. This is the first fresh time to be patriotic. After

all, even the patriots will need to save their own lives as they save others’. Thus, priorities must be focused. Certain laws that are most often seen as factors that hamper implementation of disaster preparedness plans and interventions must be relaxed – where at all very much needed, Congress must legislate to give force and effect to that relaxation. Meanwhile, the government bureaucracy including the Commission on Audit, Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Department of Finance, and Bureau of Customs, as well as government banks, must be directed to adjust themselves to be cotangent to this first-ever genuinely massive patriotism rebuilding effort. to page 8

from page 4 No casualty was reported in either side although the government troops were able to recover one M-16 armalite rifle; one M653 baby armalite rifle, among others and NPA documents. It was learned the NPA rebels belonged to the Section Committee-Southern Samar I of the Samar Provincial Party Committee. Major General Gerardo Layug, commanding general of the Army’s 8th Infantry Division based in Catbalogan City, congratulated the troops who conducted the successful combat operation and for risking their lives in doing their mandate to protect the people from the NPAs. “I assure the people that we will continue in clearing the interior barangays in the region from NPA influence so that LGUs can implement their programs and be able to provide basic services for the people,” Layug said in a statement.(REYAN L.

Whew! What a wish that should be fulfilled. After all, the past administrations since the presidency of Diosdado Macapagal should have already set these mitigation strategies so that year after year the Filipino nation could have already been reducing the devastating effects of typhoons, heavy rains, floods, landslides, earthquakes, and fires. Yes, fires. Many are

always correct in blaming local government executives and their tasked departments, and other local government officials as well, elected or appointed, together with the Department of Interior and Local Government, the Bureau of Fire Protection, and Office of Civil Defense (yes, fires are necessarily a part of its concerns, no brightminded OCD officials will refute this) for the repeated, year-round and yearly failure to inspect every residential home and hut

and shanty. In Tacloban alone, many houses haven’t been thoroughly inspected as to at least the correctness of electrical wirings. Quidnuncs know, and so does QN to a limited extent, where exactly are the incorrect wirings, and worse, illegal electrical wire tapping and connections. Why do these offices and officials continually fail? Are they inept and coward to do their job, or do they want more houses to burn and more properties to go to ashes and more lives to be endangered, or are they receiving threats(!) or bribe money to keep them from fulfilling their duty of security communities, lives and properties? QN would appreciate fully if they could go into intensive and extensive action right after this column reaches them. This applies not only to Tacloban HUC but to every city and town in the Waray region. Back to the flooding phenomenon, QN asks – the Department of Public Works and Highways and the Provincial Government of Leyte to help correct the drainage canal systems in Tacloban. Yes, correct. All of the canals, QN is told by various sources, already need dredging and deepening, as well as opening of

vents or outlets that could force drained water and all the wastes (including all silts, sediments, human wastes!!! [many canals are toilets in Tacloban!!!] that settle on the canal water, out into the sea!!!! Not just declogging is necessary, which act, in sanitation engineering terms includes removing molds and sticky matters on canal walls, but additional depths of up to 2 meters down into the earth on all canal lines are now a croaking must. Tacloban is not doing it, hence help must come in. We cannot

Sunday, 23 June 2013 allow the flood sights to be recurring devastatingly and as one deleterious to the health of hundreds to thousands of Taclobanons. The expected and most sought after help must be completed with how sewage and waste waters disgorged by the canals system will be disposed of once they reach the sea at the coastlines of Tacloban . The rivers also need deeper dredging. In the long run, very high concrete walls must be considered for construction to stop humans from throwing waste and polluting rivers. These are much, much better priorities to be concerned about than expensive cultural festivals and similar exorbitantly expended for events that, in reality, have only short-lived benefits. *** “A commander’s correct dispositions stem from his correct decisions, his correct decisions stem from his correct judgements, and his correct judgements stem from a thorough and necessary reconnaissance and from pondering on and piecing together the data of various kinds gathered through reconnaissance. He applies all possible and necessary methods of reconnaissance, and ponders on the information gathered about the enemy’s situation, discarding the dross and selecting the essential, eliminating the false and retaining the true, proceeding from the one to the other and from the outside to the inside; then, he takes the conditions on his own side into account, and makes a study of both sides and their interrelations, thereby forming his judgements, making up his mind and working out his plans. Such is the complete process of knowing a situation which a military man goes through before he formulates a strategic plan, a campaign plan or a battle plan..” – Mao Tse Tung ***
