Subject: Fw: [studentsnowar] Fwd: Peasant Movement Likens U.S. Intervention in Philippines to "Plan Colombia"

>Direct Attacks are the Only Missing Factor for the Philippines
>to be Afghanistan --
> KMP [Peasant Movement of the Philippines]
>"At this stage, the only missing factor for the Philippines to be the
>Afghanistan are the direct attacks by US military troops," says the
>militant Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas (KMP) in the weekly press
>forum Kapihan sa Cypress, today.
>KMP chair Rafael Mariano said "the US stepped-up its military assistance
>to the Macapagal-Arroyo government. The US is now funding military
>hardware, providing military training, intelligence and US troops
>deployment in combat theaters, particularly in Mindanao."
>The KMP chair likened the present aggression by the US to the
>Philippines to the role played by the US in Colombia. "Under 'Plan
>Colombia', the counter-insurgency operation of the Colombian government,
>the US played a significant role in the counter-insurgency operations of
>the Colombian government. These are all under the guise of combating
>"The US intensified its military support to the insurgency operations of
>the Colombian government through Pentagon and the Central Intelligence
>Agency. Today, camouflaged by its war against terrorism, the US is
>playing a major role in the Macapagal government's counter-insurgency
>program, from supplying war materiel up to the deployment of its
>mercenary troops to combat fields," Mariano said.
>The KMP chief added that US military troops are scattered in over 100
>countries around the world. "This forms part of the US' strategic
>pre-positioning of its military forces around the globe for its
>geopolitical agenda, by identifying the Philippines as one of the
>so-called 'rouge nations' in the world."
>The group also assailed the President, Gen. Angelo Reyes, National
>Security Adviser Roilo Golez and AFP Chief of Staff Diomedio Villanueva
>Jr. for its flimsy justification that the troops are only here for
>military exercises.
>"How can the fascist President and her militarist disciples, like Gen.
>Reyes, Gen. Villanueva and Golez differentiate military training in the
>combat field from direct military combat? This is an open display of US
>intervention in the country's internal affairs and aggression against
>the Filipino people," Mariano said.
>The KMP called for the junking of the Mutual Logistics Support Agreement
>(MLSA) and continually struggle for the abrogation of the US-RP Mutual
>Defense Treaty and the Visiting Forces Agreement. The peasant group
>also urged the Filipino people to fight US intervention in the country
>disguised as a war against global terrorism and crushing the bandit
>group Abu Sayyaf.
>"We urge the Filipino people to continue the fight for our long-desired
>national sovereignty, territorial integrity against US neo-colonial
>rule, intervention and aggression," the peasant group said. #
