Litong-lito na talaga ako sa giyera sa Mindanao…

Sabi ni Gloria, “I am giving the AFP until 2010 to crush the communist insurgency, the rebellion in the South, and terrorism!” Wow! Machong-macho! palakpakan naman d’yan!! (sabay kumakanta sa background si Manny Pacquiao… para sa yoe… ang speech ko na toe…)

Pero teka… kulang-kulang tatlong taon lang yun a.

Hmmm… 3 years to do all these? But the communist rebellion has been going on for almost 40 years already! Yet Gloria wants that, plus terrorism, plus the intermittent wars in Mindanao gone by 2010.

Ok. Maybe she knows something we don’t. Maybe the AFP’s arsenal has recently been upgraded with newer, more awesome, “shock and awe” weapons? Yun ba ang dahilan kung bakit kampante siyang mag-order ng bagong “Total War”?

Pero hindi eh… sunod-sunod pa rin naman ang pag-crash ng mga helicopter ng AFP.

So if it’s not new weapons, what then?

Could it be that she has powerful allies helping her in the war? After all, there now is a permanent American military presence in Mindanao — a fact that has led many to believe that the US Military Bases have finally returned, albeit in a newer, less conspicuous form. But Bases or no, one thing is certain, the Bush Administration supports American troop presence in Mindanao.

Pero bakit Mindanao ang puntirya ng mga Amerikano dito sa atin? Anong meron sa Mindanao at dito sila merong mga permanenteng nakatalagang sundalo?

Dahil ba nasa Mindanao ang Abu Sayyaf? Dahil ba may Jemaah Islamiyah daw sa Mindanao?O dahil ba sa mahilig lang talaga sila sa Durian at Marang?

What do the people of Mindanao have to say about this?

  1. Hehe… Karagdagan sa pagpapalito sa iyo, itong bagong working paper ni Nathan, ‘The US and the Southern Philippines’ Quagmire’ (July 2007), http://wwwarc.murdoch.edu.au/wp/wp144.pdf. Pamagat pa lang, nakalilito na!

    Sabi ni Nathan, kapag ipinasok mo pa sa tagtatasa mo ng pagtarok ng kapayapaan ang patrimonialism, insurgency, ethnic conflict, warlordism, at sangkatutak na lawlessness (smuggling, kidnapping, piracy, etc), labo-labo na talaga! Huwag ka mag-alala, hindi lang ikaw ang lito, pati iyong mga manlilito sa Malakanyang at Washington!

    To be for peace! 😉
