 File under: Abu Sayyaf 

#1 They got their start a little earlier than the 90's. But a great outline. The leaders were mujaheddin fighters recruited to fight the soviets. When they returned they formed first the MNLF then the MILF and then the Abu sayyaff. The plan for the islamics in Mindanao was for the MNLF to fight and the reach a peace agreement, then a faction will break away, the MILF, and continue the violence. Once the MILF reach a peace agreement the Abu Sayyaff (ASG) will kick in and continue the cycle. The ASG is hard core terrorist/criminal folks. They are hard to control as a group. The MNLF try and the soddies control through funding and leadership. But every once in a while they run on their own. I'm not sure if this was a directed beheading or the ASG running on their own. In any event the next course of action is for the Canadians to hunt and kill every ASG member that partisapated in the kidnapping.

#3 Ya I suspect the Canadians will not retaliate. When they killed Gene Gurrerro the same way, the US killed or captured everyone involved. All of them.
