The 14-year Marcos fascist dictatorship could not destroy the New People´s Army but unwittingly caused its nationwide spread and growth in strength until it became factor in the overthrow of Marcos in 1986. Succeeding pseudo-democratic regimes also failed to destroy the NPA. Duterte is definitely dazed by Fentanyl for imagining that he can destroy the NPA while he is rapidly discredited and isolated by his own drive for fascist dictatorship and has far less ability and resources than Marcos to maintain authoritarian rule.
I will always be ready to talk with Duterte in a civil way for the purpose of resuming the peace negotiations and for the sake of the Filipino people. But I will never go into any situation under his full control and in which he can slap me or even kill me as he threatened before.
