No.1 threat to PH security are the Communists - Duterte




This is but a declaration of truth that has been happening since its conception and most especially its mighty resurgence in 1986 when its founder Joma Sison leader and high ranking leaders were freed by then President Corazon Aquino.
Since then the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) has been a big thorn on the side of the country in attaining its long desired of peace and progress for all Filipinos.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte in his public address announced that of all the insurgents fighting the government it is not the notorious Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) based originally in Basilan that is the number 1 threat to national security but the communists.

“Actually the number one threat to the country hindi (not) Abu Sayyaf, hindi ‘yung mga terorista (not the terrorists) of no value. Itong (These) high-value targets, ito ‘yung mga komunista (these are the communists),” Duterte said, adding that it is the reason he has ordered the Armed Forces of the Philippines to be on the offensive.
The President gave the example where the communists attacked employees of the Department of Social Welfare Department (DSWD) escorted by government troops while distributing cash aid to beneficiaries of the government’s Social Amelioration Program amid the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.
“The fight against the NPAs has long been there. It started in the 50s hanggang ngayon nandiyan pa (still there until now). It has undermined the national security of the country, he said referring to the New People’s Army, the armed wing of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP).


The President expressed fears that if he does not do his duty as constitutional leader of the country, like what others did during their time, the government “might just bargain away, place in jeopardy the democratic values that the Filipinos have enjoyed for the longest time”.

Itong mga (These) forces arrayed against us — Abu Sayyaf, mga terorista (terrorists) with no ideology, the Communist Party (CPP) with ideology but more pernicious ang effect which could undermine the peace and security of our country not only this administration, but it can transcend to the next generation, giving us no respite,” he added. Maski kaunting pahinga lang na makinga lang man tayo (Even just ample time to breath).”
