,AFP warns .youth vs joining NPA as rebel army marks 43rd year '
By Mario J. Mallari
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) Is urging the youth to Join its armed wing the New People's Army (NPA) which is celebrating its 43rd founding anniversary on March 29 as it called for intensified mass activities. On the other hand, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) branded the CPP's call to the youth tojoin the communist ranks . \ as another indication of the group's insincerity to the ongoing peace talks with the government. In a statement, the CPP called for more street demonstrations during the next two weeks to mark the anniversary of the NPA which was organized by the CPP on March 29, 1969 with only 60 Red fighters bearing only nine automatic rifles and 26 single-shot handguns and rifles. ."Let us carry out street dem onst r atio ns, display streamers, put up posters, paint walls, write new poems and sing new songs," the statement said. "On March 29, let us mark the 43rd anniversary of the NPA by . celebrating the victories of the past year and steeling our determination to bring the people's war to a strategic stalemate in the next few years," the CPP said. "Let us echo the call for the Filipino people, especially the. youth, to join the NPA," it added. The CPP claimed that there is widespread anticipation olthe NPA's anniversary "as more people are drawn to the path of revolutionary armed struggle in the face of the worsening socioeconomic crisis and rapid deterioration in the people's standards of living." AFP·Civil Relations Service deputy commander Col.Vic Tomas said that by targeting the youth, the communist group is clearly showing its desperation. "Wehave to confirm the report . but if they are true to their word, this is a clear manifestation that they are not sincere in their efforts to talk peace because exposing youth to a culture of violence is violative of the right of any Filipino," Tomas said. "Secondly, this is already pal t of their culture to deceive, demean. and destroy democratic institutions. " Tomas cited the "rescue" of a number of minors, as young as 12 years old, from the ranks of . the NPA during military combat operations in various parts of the country. He said the minorrecruits were detached from their families and deprived of proper education. "The education of the NPA is indoctrination to communist ideology. First, they espouse that there is no religion, second, family relations is bad ...we have documents about their teachings and these are not the right values for a young child, ft Tomas said.

"There are some groups that would create stories so that we will react by divulging the classified details surrounding the Sulu air strike. We would not have announced its results if we had doubts. We do not want to please nonbelievers. What is important to us is that those who have been affected by these terrorists, especially the people of Sulu, believe and are happy that they are dead," he' said.

Pll.ready for joint dev't with China, says defense chief.
By Desiree Caluza Inquirer Northern Luzon.
FORT DEL PILAR, Baguio City-The Philippines continues to assert its stake over the disputed Spratlys in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) but is ready for joint development negotiations being proposed by China, Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin said here on Saturday: The defense chief also said the country was concerned about the increase in China's military buildup but "as long as it is transparent about how they spend their military budget," it would not be a problem, Gazmin graced the pre graduation program forthe Philippine Military Academy . "Bagwis" Class of2012. President Aquino is the guest speaker of today's graduation where he will also commission new officers from the 187 members of the class. 'We are amenable to the [Chinese offer of joint cooperation] for as long as it conforms to our laws," Gazmin said. '1I..s [Mr. Aquino] said, what is ours is ours. China can be allowed to have a joint venture, but it should be based on our rules," the secretary said. . Newly installed Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Ma Keqing had offered to hold talks for joint cooperation in developing the contested Spradys. While she acknowledged in a recent press briefing the 11.27per.cent increase in China's military appropria. tions, she said her country would not pose any threat to Southeast Asian nations that are also claiming ownership of the Spratlys. Reacting to reports that China would increase its defense budget to 670.27 billion yuan ($106.41 billion) this year; Gazmin said: "It is in China's interest to increase its (military] budget. We maintain that we are a little bit worried about [the increased arms spending]." But he backtracked: ''For as long as there is transparency, we should not be worried about it. Basta transparent iyong paggastos nila ang ma~ikita natin (As long as they are transparent in how they spend their military budget)." ! .Last week, the ~ed Forces of the Philip- \ pmes formally received four of eight new combat utility helicopters which it had bought from a Poland-based aircraft manufacturer. The helicopters, which landed at Air Force I City ia Clark Field, Pampanga, are far: more advanced than any helicopter currently in use .by.the.Philippine Air Force, officials said. ,.. But Gazmin stressed the country was banking on internationally accepted laws and regulations to settle any disputes. "[China] also accepts the rules-based ap.proach, which is our main approach" ·Gazmin said. ' The Philippines pegs its claim over parts of . the Spratlys on the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (Unclos), which prescribes how each nation defines maritime territories and how it may use maritime resources. Both the Philippines and China signed and ratified this convention . "But [China is) saying that it is not only Unclos that should be considered [as a basis for talks]," Gazminsaid, adding that the treaty is only one of the mechanisms for addressing the Spratly dispute.
