The Agustin Begnalen Command condemns insinuations made by Col. Loreto Magundayao, commander of the Civil Military Batallion of the 5th Infantry Division (ID) Philippine Army, that the New People’s Army mutilated the body of Private First Class (Pfc) Joel Soria, 28 years, from Quirino, Naguilian, Isabela. The said soldier was slain in an NPA ambush in Barangay Lenneng, Baay-Licuan, Abra on October 30, 2010. It was said that the face of Pfc Soria was not viewed during the wake because it was riddled with bullets and slashed with bolos.

New wave of “Terror-Scare” an old US Imperialist ploy to intensify military intervention for US military basing and economic interest

There has been a series of “terror-scare” spreading in the country of late. The National Democratic Front of the Philippines in Mindanao (NDFP-Mindanao) views this chain of events along the following the lines:

1. The United States, being in the throes of a deep recession and trapped in the quagmire of wars of aggression in the Middle East, is looking up to the Philippines as its second front to secure its geo-politics in the Asia-Pacific, protect its economic interest and unhampered US military basing in the country. It had to install a more reliable ally – Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III – through a pre-programmed election and drum up a new wave of terror to justify its intensified military intervention.

Four months after taking power, the Aquino regime was at last able to form a panel to conduct peace talks with the National Deocratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP). Among those appointed by Aquino were personalities known to be genuinely interested in the peace process.

This is the first positive step taken towards the resumption of the talks that have long been stalled and stuck in a quagmire. The NDFP, on the other hand, had declared months ago its readiness to face the Aquino regime in the peace talks once the latter demonstrates its seriousness on this matter.

Apat na buwan mula nang maluklok ito, nabuo na rin ng rehimeng Aquino ang panel para sa pakikipag-usapang kapayapaan sa National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP). Kabilang sa hinirang ni Aquino ang mga personaheng kinikilalang tunay na interesado sa prosesong pangkapayapaan.

Ito na ang unang positibong hakbang tungo sa muling pagbubukas ng matagal nang nauntol at nabahurang usapan. Sa kabilang panig, ilang buwan na mula nang ipahayag ng NDFP ang kahandaan nitong harapin sa usapang pangkapayapaan ang rehimeng Aquino oras na magpakita ito ng kaseryosohan dito.
