Gibo Teodoro to Filipinos who oppose airstrikes: 'What piece of property is worth the life of a single soldier'

"Airstrikes are used not only to neutralize targets but also to protect our troops from greater harm."



As many people calling the government attention to stop the airstrikes in Marawi City just to take back it from the Maute terrorist group.

Former Defense Secretary and lawyer, Gilbert 'Gibo' Teodoro, Jr. shared his thoughts the necessity of using airstrikes against Maute group.

He cited that by using it, it will protect the government troops and helps to end quicker the fight.

"Airstrikes are used not only to neutralize targets but also to protect our troops from greater harm."

Although the consequences are damaging the properties. He emphasized that we should also weigh in, in exchange for the lives of our soldiers.

Lastly, he said that we must condemn the violence of the terrorists instead of the actions of the government.

Read the full post of Atty. Teodoro:
"Airstrikes are used not only to neutralize targets but also to protect our troops from greater harm. It also helps to end engagements quicker rather than prolonging fighting. It is a legitimate tool at the disposal of government forces when the engagement commander determines that its use is appropriate and reasonable given the level of the threat faced. Damage to property is an unfortunate consequence not only of airstrikes but of any weapon, yet we must ask what piece of property is worth the life of a single soldier? On the other hand the real menace is the fact that the Maute gang takes refuge in dwellings and other urban locations, use rocket propelled grenades without regard to surroundings, ieds, snipe at civilians, rob, pillage, murder, and terrorize! This is the threat faced. This is what must be condemned!"

Meanwhile, netizens also shared their sentiments and agreed to his statements. Read some their reactions below.
Lelly de Asis Airstrike is a bitter pill that we have to swallow to heal Marawi... thank you for your very clear and precise explanation... hoping the people at the other side of the fence will understand...
A soldier's life is always worth more...
SALUTE! To our brave soldiers who keeps freedom alive!

Adrian Pedroso You are exactly right. I wish you had accepted duterte's invitation to join his cabinet, I voted for you in the 2010 elections as I knew you would have been a good president, unlike the previous one.

Vic Burgos I hope the article posted by the former DND Secretary, Gibo Teodoro Will clear the minds of those people who does not understand the real situation on the ground of Marawi City. Hoping too that the article will reach the eyes and empty mind of Sen. Hontiveros.

John-Fidel Pascubillo exactly! In war there is always collateral damage. The interests of the many outweigh that of the few.
