yep. things are real bad in the phillipines in mindanao as well, and also never gets reported on muchSoi Dog wrote:^ 1) Just as with the Syria situation, where people are being killed continuously every day for years with no end in sight, you become numb to it. It almost stops being news. Big events still get a headline, but the death or injury count has to be pretty high in an attack to get much attention these days.

Plus, the violence has yet to affect the rest of the country, so out of sight...out of mind. And for quite a while now, they have other prominent problems drawing away media attention.
44 police commandos were killed in a botched raid there http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-01-29/p ... id/6055900" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
