Comment on Duterte’s NTF-ELCAC and pipedream

Because of the militarization and fascisation of the reactionary government under the NTF-ELCAC, civil and military personnel and resources are being misallocated and bureaucratic and military corruption is heavily fed.

The corrupt military and civilian officials would rather make money on fake development and fake community support projects and on fake surrenders and fake casualties for the purpose of pure psywar, thus further bankrupting the reactionary government.

These fakeries reduce the number of military and police personnel for the battlefield. But even if these were increased in the so-called focus areas, they are kept blind and deaf by the people’s support for their own people’s army.

The NPA has also skillfully used the tactics of shifting from areas under concentrated enemy attack, concentrating elsewhere to attack the weak points of the enemy and dispersing to do mass work.

Duterte is crazed by too much power for his little brain and is pipedreaming with Fentanyl. Absurdly he keeps on decreeing the impossible extermination of the CPP, NPA and the oppressed and exploited people who support the CPP and NPA.


Duterte wants gov’t to focus on ‘conflict-prone communities’ to end insurgency

MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has stressed the need to focus on “conflict-prone” communities as his government eyes the end of the decades-old communist insurgency in the Philippines.

Duterte made the call during a joint command conference with the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) and state forces at Malacañang on Monday, National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon, Jr. said in a statement Tuesday.

Esperon said the President, during the meeting, “stressed the need to focus on conflict-prone communities, as he called on those present to ensure that the roots of the communist insurgency would be addressed through enhanced programs and harmonized efforts in providing for basic needs such as housing, water, education, and health.”

“To achieve this end, the cutting edge tool called the Retooled Community Support Program is now being implemented in areas with vulnerable populations,” Esperon noted.

Through the RCSP, the delivery of basic services is now improved through consultations with, and recommendations by, the community, he added.

Duterte’s security adviser also said that the chief executive ended the session “by prodding local governments for greater participation in the NTF-ELCAC for future generations.”

The meeting came after the raid of the offices of progressive and party-list organizations, which the government tagged as alleged fronts of the Communist Party of the Philippines and its armed wing New People’s Army, in Negros Occidental and in Tondo, Manila.

Among those offices raided by joint elements of AFP and PNP belong to Bayan Muna, Gabriela, and Bagong Alyansang Makabayan or Bayan.

The groups have condemned the raids and claimed that authorities planted evidence during the operations.
