Letters From Davao by Jun Ledesma

TERRORISTS THEY HAD IT COMING. Five Presidents offered the communist rebels and its armed militia peace but the settlements have not arrived into a fruition. The peace negotiation is done thousands of miles away and extremely is expensive. It is not a walk in the park in that if we consider the number of time the peace panel has to fly to the Netherlands every word can translate to a dollar. The last one is the 5th round  under the Duterte administration alone, and each round a new agenda and new demands are put across the table. It is an endless exercise and personally I am amazed at the patience of  Sec. Jess Dureza and Sec. Bebot Bello in what looks like a bumpy ride in theme park. In the meantime  police and military peace patrols are ambushed, in some cases the victims dead bodies are mutilated and if civilians happen to be along the path they are consigned to mistaken casualty. In an apparent affront to Pres. Rodrigo Duterte even the Presidential Security Guards are not spared. And what about the helpless corporate farms and road contractors’ equipment in remote areas that are being harassed and are set on fire for not paying the so-called “revolutionary tax”. I was told by a government official from Davao Oriental that even the PPP beneficiaries are also being taxed! What classic tomfoolery is this? At the height of the Marawi siege when the President was forced to declare martial law in Mindanao CPP chieftain Jose Maria Sison ordered the escalation of NPA hostilities against the government forces. If you do not call that a declaration of war it must be something’s  else. Still, Duterte hold his forces and another attempt at backdoor negotiation was dispatched. Before Jess and Joma could say hello, an infant was killed in an ambush in Talakag, Bukidnon. Talks were suspended and finally we are back in ground zero. President Duterte had declared the CPP/NPA a terrorist organization.  In hindsight, it is, or was, the peace negotiation that provided the Netherlands to continually extend Joma and his ilk the mantle of protection even as they were extended some degree of security for having been granted political asylum then. This, even as the CPP/NPA had been tagged by both America and the European Union as terrorist.  But time has changed. The reason for their escape to the Netherland, former Pres. Ferdinand Marcos, is now six feet below the ground. It is now President Duterte in the helm of the government and known for his closeness with the NPA rebels. But Duterte cannot allow that intimacy to be abused and his leadership insulted or ridiculed by Joma, his former professor. He is now President and the entire nation depends on him on how to address syndicated crime, corruption and radical insurgency. Duterte has goals to achieve and Joma’s antiquated ideology cannot be a deterrent to his government pursuit in achieving these objectives. Duterte made it clear to Jose Ma. Sison that neither government or any piece of the Philippine territory is subject to negotiations and demands.  But one thing is clear, and President Duterte is not reneging on his  promises and guarantees, members of the New Peoples Army may return to the folds of the law and live a normal life. Lands, housing and opportunities Duterte will give them. An offer which, I surmised, is not for eternity. After the terrorist tag there are only two options left for the members and  those identified and supportive of the CPP/NPA.  Lay down their arms and seek amnesty or continue with the armed struggle.  A refurbished Armed Forces of the Philippines is more prepared  now and ready to deal with those who cannot live in peace. (Jun Ledesma)   247 total views, 247 views today.....»»

PNP says Malaysian ‘emir’ alive, AFP says he’s dead
