By Professor JOSE MARIA SISON
NDFP Chief Political Consultant

Oplan Bantay Laya is now on its fifth year since its formal launching in early 2002. It has utterly failed to accomplish its declared objective of destroying the New People’s Army (NPA).

Arroyo, the fake president, is apparently under the strain of her political isolation and is exhibiting extreme signs of hysteria by proclaiming that she can destroy the revolutionary movement in the next one or two years by simply providing the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) with more funds and arms.
