Palace to NPA: Make our day

A+

The government has deployed hundreds of extra military troops to Mindanao as it vowed on Wednesday to protect candidates for next month’s elections after communist rebels recently ramped up armed attacks, beginning with the ambush last weekend of Gingoog Mayor Ruth Guingona.

The New People’s Army (NPA), the rebels’ armed wing, was attacking “soft targets,” including politicians, to blackmail them into paying for “permits” to campaign without guerrilla interference, said presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda.

“You want to challenge us? Go ahead make our day,” Lacierda said, directly mocking the 4,000-strong NPA, as he announced the deployment of an additional 500 Marines to Mindanao.

To the candidates, Lacierda said: “There is only one armed forces and we will protect you.”

The insurgents ambushed Guingona, the 78-year-old mayor of Gingoog, Misamis Oriental, on Saturday, killing her bodyguard and driver and leaving her and two policemen wounded.

Guingona belongs to the ruling Liberal Party, and is married to former Vice President Teofisto Guingona. Her son is a senator.

After the ambush, the NPA warned politicians to seek permission before campaigning in their strongholds, and to refrain from bringing in armed bodyguards.

They stepped up their attacks in Mindanao on Tuesday, lobbing a grenade at a police station, exchanging fire with a military patrol and abducting a soldier in separate incidents, police said, adding that there were no casualties.

Lacierda said the battalion of Marines deployed to Mindanao would help police break up rebel-set roadblocks that were targeting politicians campaigning for the May 13 elections.

Armed Forces spokesperson Col. Arnulfo Burgos, Jr. said Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief Gen. Emmanuel Bautista had ordered “a relentless pursuit of the perpetrators responsible for the recent ambush on Mayor Guingona.”

Stop NPA roadblocks

But while in pursuit of the insurgents, the soldiers still have to adhere to the rules of engagement and the rule of law, Burgos said.

He said Bautista also ordered intensified security patrols “so that the NPA would not be able to establish roadblocks” like the one it set up in a remote Gingoog village when the insurgents ambushed Guingona’s entourage.

Burgos also urged politicians and the public to report the extortion activities of the NPA.

“If they receive an extortion letter from the NPA demanding money from them, they should report that to us right away so that we can act on it. Do not be afraid,” Burgos said.

Burgos said that the NPA’s so-called permit to campaign and permit to win “is a form of extortion.”

He also dismissed the statement of Bayan secretary general Renato Reyes, Jr. that there was an “ongoing civil war,” which the military allegedly refused to recognize as one of the two “bigger picture” in the issue with communists, the other one being the stalled peace talks with the government.

“There is no civil war. What they (NPAs) did (in Gingoog) was a violation of the law. What they did was murder,” Burgos said.

The government has held intermittent peace talks with the communists, without success, since 1986.

“We remain committed to pursue the peace talks, but it is clear to the (Filipino) people that they are not interested,” Lacierda said.

Meanwhile, communist insurgents in Compostela Valley attacked three unarmed soldiers from the peace and development team of the 71st Infantry Battalion in Barangay (village) Elizalde Maco early Wednesday, taking one of the soldiers captive.

The military identified the soldier as PFC Jesus Tomas. Government troops are pursuing the NPA rebels to secure the release of Tomas.—AFP with Nikko Dizon, Cynthia Balana and Germelina Lacorte, Inquirer Mindanao

    where is palparan when you need him..

    • kishbuff

      Hindi si Palparan ang kailangan. Salot din yan, kasi ang kaya lang nya e yun mga unarmed at nasa legal. Di rin nya naharap ang mga bandidong NPA!

      • Philip

        LOL di mo alam ang sinasabi mo.. nung nadestino si Palparan sa mindoro eh tumahimik ang mga NPA dun.. kasi alam nila na kapag nagkaengkwentro at may nahuli na NPA na buhay eh mismong si Palparan ang kakalabit nang gatilyo.. kaya kapag may engkwentro dun walang nahuhuling buhay..

      • magiting78

        Yun ang kailangan natin ngaun hnd n dapat pinaaabot sa Korte itong mga ito..Justice delay Justice deny…hnd nmn kinikilala ng mga rebelde hudikatura natin pero pag cla ang naipit they will ask for justice….packing sheettttt…

      • Philip

        and im not complaining.. mga salot yang mga NPA na yan..

      • ruben_bush

        Berdugo si Palparan, Berdugo rin ang NPA. Pareho lang silang salot ng lipunan. Wala silang pinagkaiba. Walang human rights kay Palparan, wala ring human rights sa NPA. Pareho nating itakwil yan. Pareho lang silang kalaban ng demokrasya at kalayaan. Kapag tinanggal mo pareho yan, aayos ang bayan.

  • rodben

    MABUHAY PO KYO SA SINABI NYO MR. PREZ NOY2…sana noon nyo pa ginawa ito pag-upo..hindi lang dahil sa maynasaktan na kapartido nyo.. since early 80’s up to now how many soldiers at inosenting magsasaka ang pinahirapan at pinatay nang mga grupong ito pag di nakabayad ng Revolutionary tax daw…kya kahit na 101% pa economic growth ng Pinas is nothing kasi nga maraming mga magsasaka ang iniwan ang lupa sa nayon para mag squatter sa metro dahil sa mga NPA…siguro kahit na ayaw kyo kay Macoy kailangan ng gayahin style nya kong gusto natin ang lahat ay kumikita hindi lang sa metro manila….THIS IS ONLY THE SIMPLE OPINION FROM HAMAK AT HINAHAMAK OFW PO…

      After mamigay ng kalahating bilyon sa mga NPA last year,
      Heto ngayon si PNoy, naggagalit galitan sa mga binibeybing grupo
      na kinaaniban ng kanyang ama noon.

  • MNLFoodcritic

    Wow, “make our day” daw, but sends only 500 Marines when the AFP has tens of thousands of troops…what a joke!

    • GustoKoHappyKa

      :P your logic fail really… hindi lahat ng 4000 NPA nasa isang lugar…

      • sagbotgamot

        then what’s the use of the 500 marines?

      • MNLFoodcritic

        Exactly!!

  • padrefaura

    meanwhile, Ronald Llamas is laughing at the backstage on what lacierda is saying.

    • kishbuff

      kuya, si Llamas e nasa legal. hindi sya sa grupo ng cpp-ndf-npa. Left-of-center or social democrats. si casino,renato reyes, ocampo et al e nasa extreme left, na ang gustong pagbabago ay rebolusyon! Nitong huling araw, sabi ni casino hindi daw sya komunista, aktibista lamang…. kasi hehehehe, eleksyon ngayon. yun ang dahilan!!!!

      • padrefaura

        Llamas, sa legal? weh, di nga. legal ba yung ak-47 at dibidi nya?

      • patukar

        Para kang si balte, este! si Valte pag binatikos ang Akbayan kuntodo depensa kahit di naman administration ang pinag uusapan bilang isang spoke woman ng administration.

  • pabloo6293

    Civil war, my foot. What the NPA’s did was murder and extortion.

    • ruben_bush

      Bobo at walang utal so Reyes. Civil war to justify the ambush on a 78 year old woman???? dahil sa kabobohan nitong si Reyes, ngayon gagamitin ding dahilan ng mga utak pulbura sa kanan ang dahilang “civil war” upang mas madagdagan pa ang human rights violations.

  • askal2u

    sigurado iiyak na naman ng human right abuse sina reyes at casino pag may napatay na NPA

    • NAGMAMARUNONG

      ELIMINATE THE NPA LEADERS! ‘pag pinutol ang puno tiyak patay ang sanga’t dahon.

      • sagbotgamot

        NPA leaders come from the ranks of poor farmers in the countryside. the effective way to eliminate the NPA is to eliminate the poor farmers, the peasants, the marginalized, workers, etc…

        Casino and Reyes are leftist middle class and intellectual people. Eliminating them will only produce more leftist.

      • ron cruz

        Hey! Are you one of them?

      • zandro santos

        Si Joma Sison at jalandoni ba ay from the ranks from the poor farmers? sinong niloloko mo?

    • magiting78

      Get rid off these 2…

  • tra6Gpeche

    The only way to have peace is to completely defeat and annihilate the lawless and violent NPA. “Ningas Kogon” warfare will not create peace!

    TACTICS AND STRATEGY

    Wala namang misteryo sa tactics and strategy ng NPA re: permit-to-campaign porke kada eleksiyon eh sadyang ipinako-cover nila sa media ang mga violent events laban sa mga kandidatong tumatangging magbigay ng tong.

    First and foremost, ‘gaya ng paglalagay nila ng checkpoints para ang tumanggi at pumalag sa kanilang pangongotong ay raratratin, tulad ng ginawa sa grupo ni Mayor Ruth Guingona.

    Bilang magic formula, ay naglulunsad din ang NPA ng assassination of political leaders and other well known people at saka aaminin sa media na sila ang may kagagawan ng “pakikibaka” para sa kapakanan umano ng Pinoy! Susmaryopes. .

    ANA: “Sino kaya ang nagbibigay ng seminar sa mga NPA na gumawa ng karahasan laban sa taong-bayan? Sila ba ‘yung mga opisyal ng gobyerno na kilala ring maka-kaliwa?”

    LISA: “Meron isang kumakandidatong senador na kasalukuyang congressman ng party list group ang opisyal din DAW ng NPA. Kilala mo ba ‘yon?”

    CION: “Siempre. Pero ‘wag sanang manalo para ‘di mahaluan ng maka-komunista o terorista ang senado, kasi, tiyak na magkakaroon ng labo-labo roon, porke merong centrist vs rightist vs leftist, o, ‘di ba?”

    • sagbotgamot

      Korek! it is the government’s apathy to the welfare of the marginalized and poor farmers who created the NPA.

  • johnlordphilip

    It’s time for the NPA to disband as they are no longer relevant today. They are making things more difficult for the country and our people to attain progress.

    • sagbotgamot

      explain that to the poor farmers in the countryside who have relied to the NPA who have protected them throughout these years. maybe they will understand what you mean by difficultiies the NPA is doing for the country.

      • johnlordphilip

        I have served in poor communities considered NPA areas for more than 3 years. I have seen how NPA “protected” some poor farmers as you said. But the way they collect money from the people and companies, terrorizing legitimate companies that were suppose to improve the local economy, recruiting minors to fight for them, harassing families that were nice to the military. The NPA’s presence attracted more military operations in the area, leading to military abuses also. Overall, NPA made things so difficult for the community. This is just my unbiased opinion based on my personal experience.

      • ruben_bush

        correct ka dyan. kaya nga sabi ko sa mga kupal ay pumunta sa kanayunan para makita nila ang totoo at di sila dakdak ng dakdak eh di naman nila alam.

      • magiting78

        They are not relying on NPA there were afraid of them…NPA are good in extortion on poor farmers and fishermans…They force those in rural area to join them otherwise they will be 6 feet under…

      • ruben_bush

        noon yun, ngayon pabigat na sa mga magsasaka ang npa. sila nagpapakain, nagbibigay ng tulogan, may revolutionary tax pa sa poor farmers. pabigat sila masyado at di talaga nakakatulong sa lipunan. sagbotgamot, pumunta ka sa kanayunan, i challenge you, mag npa ka para makita mo tunay na nangyayari.

  • Joel_Delano

    Residents in NPA controlled barangays should not be allowed to vote so candidates will no campaign in these areas. That’s a doable and simple solution to that problem.

  • nice_boy

    Rules of engagement (ROE). The NPA do not have ROE. This is their advantage. With ROE our soldiers are fighting with hands tied behind their backs. Under this condition, they will never win against the NPA. Maraming mamamatay na sundalo. Unleash Palparan on them.

    • sagbotgamot

      Yes, Palparan was really good in killing unarmed Bayan muna members. if you unleashed him back Palparan will only recruit more NPAs to the countryside and ambush more politicians and soldiers . Virtually, it will be Palparan who will be responsible for more killings. Go ahead! Unleashed Palparan!

      • Philip

        nope.. he is good in killing NPAs.. especially survivors.. LOL.. and we in mindoro dont complain..

        dahil kay Palaparan, nabura halos ang mga salot na NPA sa Samar at Tagalog regions.

        Nasasabi mo yan dahil sang ayon ka sa idol of Abnoy pero sa totoo di mo alam pinagsasabi mong bayan muna member pinagpapatay ni Palparan. Sabi ni Renato Reyes they are attacking because of civlil war kaya ano dapat gawin ng military maging sitting duck! katulad sa kasalukuyang administration na left leaning nabuksan na naman ang pagkawala ni Burgos, Yun ang sinapit nya sang ayon kay Renato nasa civil war tayo, patayan na ang pinag uusapan.

      • askal2u

        tama ka civil war yan kaya legal na patayin mga teroristang kagaya ng Abu-Sayad at CPP-NPA at dukotin ng military mga militanteng makakaliwa kasama na si Reyes, isama na si sagbotgamot.

    Russia and China have discarded socialism ( from each according to his ability, to each according to his need). Their governments are run by their communist parties, and on the other hand they have shifted from socialist to capitalistic economies. The NPA in the Philippines stands alone. Socialism is gone. The NPA now is a cottage industry which engages in extorition and terrorism during elections……their mission vision is also make our day!

    guys why we have to terminate them.bullets are expensive it cost around 30 to 50 pesos a piece.instead on putting the money on this operation why not focus on modernization program on our armed forces.the npa is just an forgotten actor who wants to return to the limelight.kung baga laos na sawa na ang manonood.mga SBB sila(Sinuka na Balik pa nang Balik).why waste time on worthless group and they just pile of rubbish.

    It’s great Malacanang is sending troops to protect candidates though it would be better if Malacanang were to address the problems at its core and stop these type of attacks completely not only during elections. But is it really necessary to challenge and try to insight more conflict by issuing this threat. No need to show-off and try to be Clint Eastwood…just do your job and fix the problem.

    It’s time to crush these rebels with all-out war. Yes, it would be difficult for people who might get affected, but this is a bitter pill we have to swallow. At least, when the goal of eradicating this group has been reached, that’s one less scum in our society.
