Pres. Duterte declares all-out war vs. communist rebels

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte wants to put to an end the insurgency problem involving the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army (CPP-NPA) before he steps down in 2022.

And to have this goal achieved, the president has ordered the mobilization of all state forces to go all-out against the communist rebels.

Yes, was the answer of the president when asked if this meant an all out war with the communist reds.

"Walang hintuan. Magpalit-palit ang mga batallion. ‘Yung walang masyadong gamit, walang masyadong kalaban…’dun naman sa kabila,” Duterte said.
“Pag weary na [ang mga sundalo], magpalit na naman [ng tao]. Tuloy-tuloy,” he added.
Time table will be before he steps down from Malacanang which will be in June 30, 2022.

“Hindi ako magtatanggap ng surrender,” Duterte said.
“Basta ang sabi ko sa kanila [na militar], do your duty according to law. I will take responsibility,” Duterte said. “Ako na mag-safety sa kanila. I will take full responsibility."
The President signed last November 2017, Proclamation 360, which terminated the peace talks with the communist rebels.

Proclamation 360 stated that the peace negotiations were terminated because “despite the best efforts of the administration, the communists failed to show sincerity and commitment in pursuing genuine and meaningful peace negotiations as it engaged in acts of violence and hostilities, endangering the lives and properties of innocent people.”
