As an integral part of Bayanihan's "enemy-centric approach is the fabrication of lies by the AFP to destroy, demoralize and divide the NPA and the masses.

The Philippines is now a vast US military base. This point was driven home when the US North Arabian fleet docked at Manila Bay from May 15 to 18.

The fleet, which serves as the US' base of operations against Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya is composed of four ships--the USS Carl Vinson, the USS Shiloh, the USS Bunker Hill and the USS Gridley--and has a personnel of 25,000. The entire fleet is nuclear-powered and in all likehood, carries nuclear weapons. It is from this fleet that the US launched its operation to assassinate Osama bin Laden in Pakistan on May 1. The fleet brought his body to the open sea where it was later thrown overboard.
