Duterte’s mania for mass murder is really getting worse every day. In his visit to his army’s 10th Infantry Division base in Mawab, Compostela Valley, he ranted and raved that he wanted to replicate Suharto’s massacre of three million people in 1965-66.
What the bloodthirsty tyrant Duterte does not understand is that the PKI (Communist Party of Indonesia) did not have a people’s army and was completely exposed by its participation in parliamentary elections and in the NASAKOM government of Sukarno.
The advantage of the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) is that it has a growing people’s army and has always been clandestine since its founding in 1968. As I pointed out earlier, Duterte has to kill 100 to 1000 noncommunists before he can kill a single communist.
Duterte is failing to intimidate the CPP and the revolutionary masses with his ranting and raving. He merely incriminates himself by openly inciting and ordering his armed minions to engage in mass murder on the basis of mere suspicion that entire legal organizations are communist.
He likewise incriminates himself by inciting and ordering his armed minions to “hamlet” the Lumad people and engage in the unlawful confinement or detention of entire communities.
He is definitely succeeding in incriminating and exposing himself as the mastermind of state terrorism and the No.1 violator of human rights in the Philippines.
Before the International Criminal Court or the people’s court of the people’s democratic government, the only defense left for him is for his lawyer to plead his insanity. Panelo’s usual defense of him as a clown will even be more disastrous as lame excuse in a court of law.###
