Mr Marvic Leonen (shown in picture), chief peacnicker for the Philippine government panel is shortsighted and naive!
A chance for peace? You can't be serious!
Alright, let me rephrase that... There possibly is a chance for peace -- agree, after all Mr Marvic Leonen has announced a breakthrough in the peace talks between GPH and MILF. The price of peace is the nation's willfull obliteration of national respect and dignity in favour of Malaysia.
Thanks to Mr Leonen's brilliant 10 Decision Points of Principle signed in April this year between the Malaysia-backed rebel MILF group and the Philippine government designed to allow for the Philippines to give up sovereignty over a portion of Mindanao and hand it over to the MILF and Malaysia, there just might be "peace" but even then, there is no guarantee (Malaysia just might want to grab the whole of Mindanao.). Never mind that by doing so, Mr Leonen has unilaterally given up the nation's Sabah claim...
Did I not predict that with government's timidity about the nation's standing Sabah claim, Malaysia will walk into Mindanao, land grab a huge portion of it via their MILF cronies? Well, it is happening now...
And Mr Marvic Leonen speaks of a chance for peace? Mr Leonen himself trumpeted how our Armed Forces bent over backwards to accomodate the desideratas of the Malaysia-inspired MILF. So, of course when your Armed Forces bend over backward to accomodate the desideratas of a band of rebels, that is precursor to peace no doubt!
Mr Leonen said, “In an unprecedented manner, you saw the full cooperation of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police to make your consultation a success.”
That's fine... we can live with the Armed Forces bending over backward to their natural enemies but when the MILF chief himself "expressed optimism a breakthrough could be achieved on the issue of transition" because he had more faith in the abilities and the negotiation facilitation prowess of Tengku Dato Abd Ghafar Tengku Mohamed from Malaysia, then we have a real problem.
Mr Leonen, we believe you have been not only been shortsighted, you also have been extremely naive because the "peace" that you are trumpeting today is proof that you have allowed Malaysia to screw the Philippines through and through. And when the rest of patriotic Filipinos finally realise how you sold our sovereignty out, God help us all!
