The bomb threat has been neutralized and three suspects were arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation. Recently, Justice Secretary Leila De Lima disclosed today that it was one of the four targets by an armed terrorist group planning to attack Chinese-owned business establishments in the Philippines.

The armed terrorist group revealed as USAFFE, shamelessly taken its name from the former US Armed Forces in the Far East during WWII, and they intended to plant one of their explosives inside a comfort room inside the NAIA while the other three were intended to destroy SM Mall of Asia, the main office of the DMCI, and the Chinese Embassy. The USAFFE comprised of former and active members of the military, police, and former members of the New People's Army and the Moro National Liberation Front.

It is said that this armed terrorist group wants to show the world that the Philippines can strongly bring China down to its knees. If the Aquino administration fails, it is the duty of the soldiers to do so. This is all just plain propaganda.
