The People Power regiment
I hope that the AFP top brass is joking when the Air Force commanding general said that even with the lack of fighter aircraft, we will defend our islands with "warm bodies"!
The AFP should now consider drafting People Power stalwarts. After all they have warmer bodies than our soldiers.
Maybe we can have a readily mobilized People Power regiment that can be air dropped to PagAsa island.
And thay can flash their trademark Laban signs at the invading Red Army.
Our armed forces have become so pathetic in its capabilities. The blame really is on the successive Malacanang tenants we have had in the last 20 years or so.
Worsening food security and the Communists
I suppose the AFP has still more firepower than the New Peoples Army. The communist ideologues really have the gall to intensify attacks during this coming crisis. This will cause more hardship for the masses.
Maoism, Leninism and Stalinism all variants of the unscientific ideology of Karl Marx have been the reason for many major famines in 20th century human history. The capitalist system never had caused food insecurity in the way that Mao, Lenin and Stalin did.
Marxism has also created the world's worst environmental problems. At least in Capitalism someone makes a profit!
