    ZAMBOANGA CITY – A decorated Marine commander has been named as the next chief of the Western Mindanao Command in Zamboanga City.

    Lt. Gen. Rustico Guerrero, commander of the Western Command headquarters in Palawan, will take over Lt. Gen. Rey Ardo who is retiring this week.

    Ardo was military commander when hundreds of separatist rebels attacked Zamboanga City in September. More than 400 people were killed and wounded in three weeks of street battles that also resulted in a humanitarian crisis.

    A graduate of the Philippine Military Academy in 1981, Guerrero served as military chief in Basilan and Sulu and later commandant of the Philippine Marines.

    He earned his Masters of Military Study and Command and Staff College in the Marine Corps University in Virginia, US, and also took up the Foreign Officers Tactical Intelligence Course in Queensland in Australia.

    1. Another useless General like General ARDO and VANO PNP na walang ginawang paraan upang hulihin ang MNLF forces sa pag stockpile ng Armas at Bala simula nung Janyary 2013 at sa pag actual atake itong September 2013. Malinao pa sa putik na nagkaroon ng FAILURE of INTELLIGENCE on the part of the AFP/PNP/NICA/Mayor Salazar. Kung ginawa lamang nila ang trabaho nila Hindi mangyari Ito. Palpak ang intelligence gathering I meron sabotage ang nangyari at nakapagtataka at Kung bakit walang intel info sa mga movement ng MNLF. Nasaan na ang Intel Fund???? Bakit tahimik si Pinoy? At Hindi pinapa investiga itong kapalpakan ng AFP/PNP/NICA/Mayor Salazar. At ngayon another Marine General ang papalit Kay ARDO eh ni Hindi nga yan pumunta sa spratly para bigyan ng moral yung mga troops deployed roon at NASA Airconditioned room LNG siguro at palaging Golf siguro. Kaya sa mga kapalpakan nyo hayan ang daming namatay, nawalan ng bahay at hanap buhay. Mga Palpak at natutulog kayo sa pansitan.
