Home / Politics / Former Hardcore NPA Leader Talks About DUTERTE and JOMA Sison. A MUST READ!



{DISCLAIMER: The following post is written by retired General Romeo Poquiz}

Here is a comment of a friend, a former hardcore NPA leader, on my previous post on the Duterte-Joma talks:

“Times are indeed a changing. It is so refreshing to engage in a ‘political conversation’ with a young-newly retired AFP General, who seem well adept with the Philippines’ current social and political situation. “Let’s give peace a chance!”, is simply the gist of Gen. Romy’s piece. And indeed PEACE seem to be a ticket away from the Netherlands.

No less than Jose Maria Sison, Senior CPP-NDF “Consultant” and probably the only living genuine, full blooded Marxist-Leninist-Maoist individual in the world, has welcomed the peace overture of the President in-waiting Rod Roa Duterte. JoMa even invited the participation of ideological nemesis, the ‘Rejectionist’ Left, after openly expressing, in so many words his personal view of a possible successful ‘political settlement’ by the armed CPP-NPA with the Duterte administration.

Nobody sees this happening two months ago. Perhaps, finally, JoMa read his ‘homeworks’ and realized there’s a lot of lessons to be learned from Deng Xioaping’s famous pronouncement, “I do not care if the cat is black or white, what matters is it catches mice”, which had caused so much criticism, along with his closest collaborators, such as Zhao Ziyang, who in 1980 relieved Hua Guofeng as China’s premier, and Hu Yaobang, who in 1981 did the same with the post of party Chairman, took the reins of power for the purpose of advancing the “Four Modernizations” (economy, agriculture, scientific and technological development and national defense), and announced an ambitious plan of opening and liberalizing the economy.

We have a lot to learn from our neighbor’s past and history. Huwag puro Levis and Chevrolet ang nasa isip. Magpasyal kayo sa Ongpin at Divisoria…if you know what I mean.

Mabuhay ka, Gen. Romy!! May your tribe increase! The Philippines is indeed on its way in achieving PEACE and PROSPERITY. I am an Atheist. However, sa ngalan ng tunay na PAGBABAGO, ako po ay makikiisa sa panalangin ng sambayanang Pilipino.

Huwag mo kami bibiguin, mahal na Rodrigo Roa Duterte.”
