PHILIPPINE ECONOMY AND
PEACE AND ORDER
INTERNAL ARMED CONFLICTS

_________________________________________________________




THE PHILIPPINE ECONOMY AND INTERNAL ARMED CONFLICTS SITUATION.

THE AQUINO REGIME INHERITED GOVERNMENT, POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC, CIVIL AND SOCIAL JUSTICE, AND CULTURAL PROBLEMS AND SITUATIONS IN THE PHILIPPINES FROM PAST HISTORICAL GOVERNANCE ARE STILL IN POVERTY AND OPPRESSIONS AND INEQUALITIES IN POLITICS AND ECONOMICS AND CIVIL AND SOCIAL JUSTICE.

THE PEACE AND ORDER FROM COMMON CRIMINALITIES ARE IN HIGH CRIME RATES SUCH AS ORGANIZED CRIMES SYNDICATE LIKE ROBBERY AND GAMBLINGS, DRUGS ETC., ETC.  THOSE CRIMES ARE POVERTY RELATED CRIMES IN A POOR COUNTRY WHO DOESN'T HAVE DESCENT WORK AND LIVING TO SUSTAIN LIFE ENTERING IN SYNDICATE LIKE THE ABOVE SAID JUST TO HAVE SURVIVAL MEANS IN LIFE.

THE INTERNAL ARMED CONFLICT ARE RISING FROM THE PAST 42 YEARS OF THEIR ARMED STRUGGLES FIGHTING
TO HAVE GOOD GOVERNANCE AND SOCIETY AGAINST ABUSIVE GOVERNMENT AND SOCIETY.  THE CPP-NPA-NDF ARMED STRUGGLES ARE STILL GROWING TO OBTAIN THEIR POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC GOAL IN THE COUNTRY.  THE OTHER INSURGENTS ARE STILL IN FIGHTING AGAINST GOVERNMENT, THE MINDANAO INSURGENTS LIKE MNLF AND THE ABU SAYAF TERRORIST GROUPS ARE STILL FIGHTING THE GOVERNMENT FOR THEIR PERSPECTIVE. THE INTERNAL CONFLICTS EXIST ON THE INEQUALITY IN THE PHILIPPINES RESULTING POVERTY AND OPPRESSIONS AND UNEQUAL IN JUSTICE ETC, ETC.  THE RECENT STAND-OFF BETWEEN MNLF AND GPH PROOVING THE INSURGENCY IN THE MINDANAO ARE IN CAPABLE OF FIGHTING THE GOVERNMENT AND THEY CAN RISE UP TO MAKE MINDANAO BECOME AS WHAT THEY WANT IN LIVING AND GOVERNANCE.

THE MILF PEACE PROCESS ARE IN THE MIDST OF WAVE HAVING TENDENCY OF DISCONTINUING THE PEACE
PROCESS FROM THE OTHER PARTIES INTERVENTION IN THE PEACE PROCESS AND THE GOVERNMENT SLOW AND DELAYING THE PEACE DEAL FINAL OUTPUT WHICH THE FINALIZATION IS OBVIOUSLY WILL HAPPENED AFTER THE INCUMBENCY OF THE ADMINISTRATIONS AND IT IS VERY STUPID CLEVERNESS AND OBVIOUS MOVE OF THE GOVERNMENT.  THE PEACE DEAL OF BANGSAMORO WITH MILF AND GPH SHOULD BE INTELLECTUALLY FINISHED BY NEXT YEAR AND THE GOVERNMENT OR THE AQUINO REGIME
WILL GUIDE THE BANGSAMORO GOVERNANCE FOR THE LAST TERM OF THE PRESIDENT TO MAKE SURE THAT HE MADE THE  GOOD GOVERNANCE IN MINDANAO FACING INTERNAL ARMED CONFLICT IN PEACE.  
       
THE PHILIPPINE PEACE AND ORDER IN INTERNAL CONFLICTS AND COMMON CRIMINALITIES ARE MATERIAL IN THE
PHILIPPINES WHICH IT OCCURS BECAUSE OF THE PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT UNEQUAL AND ABUSIVE GOVERNANCE AND SOCIAL PROBLEMS.  DUE TO POVERTY AND POOR LIVING AND INDECENT LIVING, NO HOUSE, NO FOOD, NOT ENOUGH SOCIAL SERVICES UNEQUAL AND NO WORK OR LIVELIHOOD MANY PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY ENGAGED IN CRIMINALITIES TO LIVE AND SUSTAIN LIFE.  MANY PEOPLE ALSO TOOK ARMS AND ENGAGED IN REBELLION AGAINST GOVERNMENT ON UNEQUAL POLITICS AND ECONOMICS RESULTING TO POVERTY AND OPPRESSION'S TO HAVE EQUAL GOVERNMENT IN THE PHILIPPINES.  THE CPP-NPA-NDF ADDRESS THIS PROBLEMS IN THEIR CULTURAL AND ARMED STRUGGLE AS SEMI FEUDAL AND SEMI COLONIAL COUNTRY OR SOCIETY CHANGING THE POLITICAL AND SOCIAL STRUCTURES IN THE PHILIPPINES AND FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT TO SELF DETERMINATIONS AND FIGHT FOR THEIR CULTURAL REVOLUTIONS AND POLITICAL PERSPECTIVE OF SOCIALISM FROM NATIONAL DEMOCRACY GOVERNMENT.  THE MILF AND MNLF HAS THE SAME PERSPECTIVE IN MUSLIM MINDANAO FIGHTING ALSO THEIR RIGHT TO SELF DETERMINATIONS USING ARMED STRUGGLE FOR GOOD GOVERNANCE THEY WANT IN MINDANAO..     
THE CRIMINALITIES OCCURRENCES IN THE PHILIPPINES AND INTERNAL CONFLICTS ARE NOT THE PROBLEMS OF PHILIPPINE DEVELOPMENT WHICH THE PHILIPPINE HAS ALREADY THE PROBLEM IN PHILIPPINE DEVELOPMENT DUE TO ABUSIVE AND CORRUPTIONS AND EVILNESS IN THE GOVERNMENT OR WHAT THEY CALL BUREAUCRATIC CAPITALIST RUNNING THE GOVERNMENT AND FOREIGN INTERVENTION'S ETC, ETC, OR THE INEQUALITIES IN POLITICS AND ECONOMY AND CIVIL AND SOCIAL JUSTICE AND CULTURE.  THE MIS-GOVERNANCE LIKE 10 BILLION PDAF SCAMS OR RAMPANT CORRUPTION IN THE GOVERNMENT AND ABUSES OF HUMAN RIGHTS OR UNEQUAL GOVERNANCE AND JUSTICE IN THE COUNTRY ARE THE PROBLEMS IN THE COUNTRY WHICH POVERTY AND OPPRESSIONS OR INJUSTICE ARE RAMPANT IN THE COUNTRY TO PUSH THE PEOPLE TO MAKE REBELLION AND FIGHT AND OVERTHROW THE GOVERNMENT TO CHANGE IT IN GOOD GOVERNANCE OR POLITICAL PERSPECTIVE THEY WANT.  

THE EDSA REVOLUTIONS IN THE PHILIPPINES PROOVE OF PEOPLE REBELLION IN PEACE BUT THIS REVOLUTIONS DID NOT CHANGE THE GOVERNMENT BUT OUSTING ONLY A BAD OR EVIL PRESIDENT AND LEADERS AND THIS HISTORICAL EVENT IN THE COUNTRY DOESN'T CHANGE OUR LIFE AT ALL HAVING A NEW GOOD GOVERNMENT LEADERS BUT STILL POVERTY AND OPPRESSIONS AND INJUSTICE ARE EVERYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY.

NOW WHAT IS THE SOLUTIONS OF THE AQUINO REGIME IN OUR INEQUALITIES IN POLITICS AND ECONOMY AND CIVIL AND SOCIAL JUSTICE AND CULTURAL MINORITIES PROBLEMS?
IN COMMON CRIMINALITIES AND INSURGENCY IN PEACE AND ORDER, THE GOVERNMENT MOVE FOR GOOD GOVERNANCE FACING CRIMINALITIES STILL IN ABUSIVE ENFORCEMENTS FROM SUPPRESSING ROBBERY AND GAMBLING THERE IS ABUSIVE WAY OF ELIMINATING THEM BY EXTRA JUDICIAL KILLINGS NOT JUST JAILING THEM. IN THE INSURGENCY PROBLEMS THE ABUSES AND STILL RAMPANT SALVAGING AND MAKING EXTRA JUDICIAL KILLING TO THOSE INSURGENTS AND ABUSIVELY ARRESTING A FALSE PERSON EVEN IN PEACE PROCESS THEY VIOLATED JASIG AGREEMENTS.  THE FRESH ISSUE IS THE GPH AND MNLF STAND-OFF OF WHICH THE GOVERNMENT EMPLOY FORCE TO MNLF INSTEAD OF CONTINUOUS PEACE DEAL RESULTING TO COLLATERAL DAMAGES FROM LIFE TO PROPERTIES AND LIVELIHOOD OF THE ZAMBOANGENEO'S PEOPLE.     

IN GOVERNANCE THE GOVERNMENT INSTEAD OF PLANNING TO DEVELOPED THE COUNTRY IN PEACEFUL MEANS
HAVING INSURGENTS LIKE CPP-NPA-NDF AND MNLF AND MILF THEY EMPLOY FORCE TO THEM AND NOT MAKING FULL CONTINUES PEACE DEAL TO RESOLVED INTERNAL CONFLICT IN DEVELOPING THE PHILIPPINES.  THE SAID MOVE IS NOT GOOD WHICH INSTEAD OF DEVELOPING THE PHILIPPINE ECONOMY AND PEACE OR NEGOTIATING IN PEACE THEY ARE EMPLOYING FORCE AGAINST THE INSURGENTS IN SUPPRESSING THEM, THEY ARE MAKING COLLATERAL DAMAGES OR DESTROYING LIVELIHOOD OF THE PEOPLE IN THAT KIND OF MOVE AND CONTINGENCIES PLAN, THE INSURGENTS ARE NOT HURRICANE THAT CAN NOT FACE AND NEGOTIATE IN PEACE TABLE.  

THE AQUINO REGIME FROM THE MIDST OF HIS THREE TERMS IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OUR ECONOMY NOW, THE ADMINISTRATION PERSPECTIVE IN GOVERNANCE FOR THE PEOPLE ACCORDING TO THEIR STATUS GROWTH RATE ARE NOW RISING ECONOMY OR A TIGER ECONOMY.  WE ARE NOW FAST IN ASIAN ECONOMIC GROWTH, THE ADMINISTRATIONS SAID IN THEIR WEBSITE AND PUBLICATIONS.  THE JOBS AND LIVELIHOOD IN THE PHILIPPINES ARE RISING OR OUR ECONOMIC GDP ARE DEVELOPING OR IN HIGH RATE.  DOES THE PEOPLE ACHIEVED THIS
GROWTH?  IN POVERTY ALLEVIATIONS THE SOCIAL SERVICES OF FEEDING PROGRAM IN KAPAMILYA PROGRAM ARE SPENDING HIGH HELPING OUR FELLOW FILIPINOS LESS OPPORTUNATE OR UNLUCKY WE MAY SAY IN HAVING GOOD LIVELIHOOD OF GOOD LIVE.  THE POVERTY ARE STILL RAMPANT AND THERE IS NOT GOOD PROGRAM OF THE GOVERNMENT HOW TO ALLEVIATE THIS PROBLEMS.  THE SAID JOB OPPORTUNITIES AND LIVELIHOOD ARE NOT ACCOMMODATING FILIPINOS IN JOB AND LIVELIHOOD AND KAPAMILYA MEMBERSHIP ARE STILL IN GETTING IN LARGE NUMBER DUE TO UNFORTUNATE JOB AND LIVELIHOOD SUPPORT OF THE GOVERNMENT AND NOT JUST UNDISCOVERED POOR TO MEMBER IN KAPAMILYA PROGRAM.   

THE ANTI ABUSES AND CORRUPTION PRACTICES CAMPAIGN OF THE AQUINO ADMINISTRATIONS ARE FLOPPING ON HIS THREE YEARS MIDST OF HIS TERM DUE TO INEQUALITY IN JUSTICE AND CORRUPTION OCCURRENCES WHICH HIS ADMINISTRATION ARE INCLUDED IN THE CORRUPTIONS PRACTICES. THE NEWLY DISCOVERE3D 10 BILLION PDAF SCAMS FROM 2007 TO 2009 FROM ARROYO REGIME ARE NOT JUST THE PAST CORRUPTIONS BUT ALSO THERE IS RECENT ADMINISTRATION CORRUPTION PRACTICES FROM THIS SCAM AND SOME OTHER ISSUES. 


THE GOVERNMENT ABUSIVE AND CORRUPT LEADERS AND OFFICIALS STILL THE PROBLEMS IN THE PHILIPPINES FROM MARCOS REGIME LEADERSHIP RESULTING IN RAMPANT POVERTY AND OPPRESSION OR BEING A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY BUT HAVING A WELL ENOUGH NATURAL RESOURCES LIKE GOD MINES ETC., ETC.   
     
THE PHILIPPINES HAS NATIONAL LIVELIHOOD CORPORATION, GOVERNMENT PROGRAM FOR POVERTY ALLEVIATIONS, THERE IS DILG, LOCAL GOVERNMENT, LAWMAKERS PDAF FUNDS, DSWD SOCIAL SERVICES AND OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND THERE IS ALSO PRIVATE HELPING IN LIVELIHOOD PROGRAMS IN THE PHILIPPINES BUT STILL POVERTY ARE RAMPANT WHY?  THE ABUSES AND CORRUPTION PRACTICES ARE VERY
RAMPANT AND OVER POWERED IN THE GOVERNMENT SIPHONING PEOPLES MONEY OR BUDGET THAT CAN BE USE TO DEVELOPED AND SUPPORT LIVELIHOOD PROGRAMS THAT IS WHY POVERTY ARE NOT DIMINISHING OR ALLEVIATING OR ELIMINATING POVERTY BECAUSE OF MISUSE OF FUNDS FOR THEIR OWN SELF INTEREST.  THOSE GOVERNMENT EVIL ABUSERS AND CORRUPT KILLS MANY PEOPLE IN HUNGER AND STARVATION'S AND SLEEPING IN THE COLD STREETS OF HAVING NO HOUSE ON THEIR CORRUPTIONS PRACTICES SELFISHLY GIVE THEIR RIGHTS BECAUSE OF THEIR SELF INTEREST IN HAVING WELL DECENT LIVES.   

THERE ARE MANY EVILS ABUSERS AND CORRUPT IN THE GOVERNMENT PUTTING PHILIPPINES IN POVERTY OR THIRD WORLD COUNTRY AND THE FRUIT OF THE NATIONS ARE GATHERED BY SMALL NUMBER OF PEOPLE LEADING THE COUNTRY AS WHAT THEY CALL THE ELITE IN THE STRATUM OR FULCRUM LEVEL OF CLASSES IN LIFE IN THE PHILIPPINES.  THE ISSUE OF THE AQUINO ADMINISTRATION ARE DISHONEST IN GOVERNANCE OR ABUSE IN GOVERNANCE JUST TO DO THE RIGHT LIKE THE CORONA IMPEACHMENT BRIBE MONEY JUST TO IMPEACH A CORRUPT AND ABUSIVE OFFICIALS OF GOVERNMENT LIKE CORONA AND MANY MORE ABUSES JUST TO GOVERN FOR THE RIGHT.  THE ABUSERS AND CORRUPT IN THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT HAVE TITLE TO LEAD THE COUNTRY AGAINST EVILNESS OR ABUSES ALSO AND CRIMINALITIES.     

WE PROMOTE TO THE GOVERNMENT SPECIALLY TO OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT TO IMPLEMENT GOOD GOVERNANCE IN FAIR AND JUST AND GODLY WAY OR IN EQUAL POLITICS AND ECONOMICS AND CIVIL AND SOCIAL JUSTICE AND CULTURAL RIGHTS NOT IN UNEQUAL AND ABUSIVENESS EVEN SUPPRESSING TRUE CRIMINALS OR ABUSERS.  DO NOT ABUSE IN SUPPRESSING ABUSERS OR CRIMINAL IN THE GOVERNMENT AND SOCIETY SPECIALLY ABUSING INNOCENT PEOPLE.  RESPECT THE LAW ITSELF AND HUMAN RIGHTS OF EVERY PERSON IN GOVERNANCE IN CARRYING OUT YOUR DUTIES IN THE GOVERNMENT. ALWAYS CLEAN THE GOVERNMENT FOR ABUSERS IN IMPLEMENTING GOOD GOVERNANCE FOR ALL AND AGAINST CRIMINALITIES TO HAVE A GOD PUBLIC SERVANT AND NO ABUSIVE IN PUBLIC SERVICE AND SERVING GOD WHICH GOD WILL NO ALLOW AN ABUSIVE OR EVIL PUBLIC SERVANT IN HIS GOVERNMENT.      


WE PROMOTE THE CONTINUES PEACE PROCESS OR PEACE DEAL IMPLEMENTATIONS BY THE GOVERNMENT AGAINST ALL INSURGENTS FROM CPP-NPA-NDF AND MNLF AND MILF AND ABB AND CPLA AND OTHERS AND RESOLVED THE INTERNAL CONFLICT IN PEACE NOT IN BLOODY SUPPRESSION'S AND DEFEND OR PROTECT THE COUNTRY IN PEACEFUL MEANS NOT IN ARMED FORCE SUPPRESSION'S. ABIDE HUMAN RIGHTS AND IHL IN CARRYING OUT YOUR DUTIES IN SUPPRESSING INSURGENTS FOR THERE IS NO INNOCENT CIVILIANS WILL SUFFER AND RESPECT POPULATED AREA TO SIMPLY ENJOY THEIR LIVES AND LIFE AND HUMAN RIGHTS. EMPLOYING FORCE TO INSURGENTS LIKE IN ZAMBOANGA STAND-OFF WILL NOT DEVELOPED OUR COUNTRY BUT IT WILL PUT DOWN THE COUNTRY INTO MESS OR RUINING OUR ECONOMY WE HOPE THE ZAMBOANGA STAND-OFF AND OTHER COUNTRY EXPERIENCES IN INTERNAL CONFLICTS DEVASTATING OUR ECONOMY WILL GIVE A LESSON TO OUR GOVERNMENT TO CONTINUE THE PEACE PROCESS IN PROTECTING AND DEVELOPING THE COUNTRY.  HOW MUCH REPARATION MONEY WILL THE GOVERNMENT WILL PAY TO THE PEOPLE DEVASTATED BY THEIR MOVES.  THEY CAN NOT PUT BACK THE INNOCENT LIFE OF THE CIVILIANS DIED IN THE STAND-OFF DEEMED AS COLLATERAL DAMAGE. WE HOPE THE GOVERNMENT RESPECT LIFE AND LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.  THE 10 BILLION CORRUPTED BY THE GOVERNMENT ARE LOSSES OF THE PEOPLE AND STILL THERE IS LOSSES ANOTHER IN THE STAND-OFF HAPPENED.
 
WE PROMOTE TO SUPPRESS CRIMINALITES IN LEGAL MEANS NOT IN ABUSIVE WAY OR EXTRA JUDICIAL KILLINGS
OR ABUSIVE ARREST AND JAILING CRIMINALS.  RESPECT RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE ABIDE HUMAN RIGHTS BASED POLICING IN IMPLEMENTING PEACE AND ORDER. ENCOURAGE PEOPLE IN HUMAN RIGHTS RESPECT FROM THE ENFORCEMENTS AND ENCOURAGE PEOPLE IN RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES AND EDUCATIONS AND OTHERS TO PROCESS THEIR MIND IN PEACE AND SOCIAL GOOD PERSON AND ABIDING LEGAL FROM HUMAN RIGHTS.       

OUR POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC SYSTEM DICTATES OUR ECONOMIC LIFE AND LIFE IN THE
COUNTRY.  ON WHAT CONSENSUS POLITICS WE CHOOSE IT IS OUR LIFE TO BE OR TO PRACTICE IN THIS LAND.  I HOPE EVERYONE CHOOSE THE BEST FOR US.  WE ARE NOT JUST TRADING HERE TO LIVE E HAVE SYSTEM TO FOLLOW IN THIS COUNTRY.  WE PROMOTE TO NATIONAL INDUSTRIALIZATION'S AND AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT MODE OF PRODUCTIONS IN OUR CAPITALIST ECONOMY IN THE COUNTRY TO HAVE FULL EMPLOYMENTS AND LIVELIHOOD AND IN NATIONAL CONTROL OF ECONOMY AND POLITICS PROTECTING ALSO OUR NATURAL RESOURCES AND UNITE AGAINST THE ABUSERS IN THE GOVERNMENT AND STRUGGLE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AND EQUALITY IN POLITICS AND ECONOMICS AND SOCIAL AND CIVIL RIGHTS AND CULTURAL RIGHTS TO BE FULLY IMPLEMENTED IN THE PHILIPPINES AND ACHIEVED AND ENJOY BY THE PEOPLE EQUALLY AND HAVE A GOOD GOVERNANCE IN THE COUNTRY.......  THE PHILIPPINES ARE IN HIGH TECHNOLOGY ADVANCEMENT IN COMMUNICATIONS, TRANSPORTATION'S ETC., ETC., BUT WE DON'T HAVE YET THE PHILIPPINE OWNED LOCAL INDUSTRIES FOR THE MODERN TECHNOLOGY LIKE COMPUTER OR TELEVISIONS EVEN HOUSEHOLDS PRODUCTS ETC., ETC., TO EVOLVED IN THE COUNTRY ALL ARE FOREIGN PRODUCTS AND EXCESS OR SURPLUS.
