Nahibong ko ni Leo (Lastimosa) sa iyang kolum nga unta lantip man kaayo ni siya modiskutir sa mga isyo kaniadto apan karon imong masabut nga daw sa nagpanagana siya nga mosaway sa gibuhat ni Aquino sa iyang siging pangusog nga kaaprobahan ang BBL (Bangsamoro Basic Law). It has been the consensus of some respectable writers and opinion makers that this BBL is not practical and cannot be considered as the real answer to the search for a lasting peaceful  solution in Mindanao as the MILF is not the sole party to claim it has on its behalf the entire voice of the various factions in Mindanao clamoring for independence. And just like the MNLF before, although there was already a "Peace Treaty" signed between Nur Misuari of the MNLF and FVR (Pres. Fidel V. Ramos) in 1996 but it  was not respected and honored because there is another one - the MILF – which the P-Noy administration recognized as the sole body to negotiate with the Philippine government to establish the BBL. Even if the BBL is approved under Aquino's term, there is no guarantee that Mindanao peace can be relied upon as there are still  other factions not included in the search for peace as MILF does not carry the  "united voice" of the other existing factions.

Footnote: This comment came out in connection with a column of Leo Lastimosa in The FREEMAN, entitled, "Namiligro ang kalinaw." He expressed his personal fears that peace in Mindanao is threatened if the BBL is not approved during Aquino's  term. But a careful analysis of his "fears" is deemed unfounded because the MILF does not carry the unified voice of the other interested players from different factions that also clamor for independence and their side was not given any importance at all in the ongoing search for peace in that area. It came out on March 26, 2015.
