Why Conflicts In The Philippines Elude Peace?

(Sorry but this article is still being written)

Why is the Philippines beset with conflicts that elude lasting peace?

Are we being used as pawns by manipulative powers?

We all know that there is big money to be made in any conflict anywhere in the world. But most of us are not aware on how conflicts are created.

The war industry is a very powerful sector. Even US President John Kennedy was assassinated because he wanted the Vietnam war stopped.

Our very good friend, the USA, wants war in Mindanao and will do anything to create chaos there to justify their meddling into East Asian affairs.

Pera-pera lang yan. World governments are beholden to big business.

Before the end of her tour of duty in the Philippines, why did former Ambassador Christie Kenney break diplomatic protocol and met with the Abu Sayyaf without even informing the Philippines? Was the delivery of arms, including the M50 assault rifle one year earlier than the receipt of the same of the Philippine military included in their secret agenda?

Pera-pera lang yan. World governments are beholden to big business.

Wars are waged in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc for economic and financial gain.

Why did US Ambassador Sonia Brady “innocently” leak out confidential information on the infamous “Brady Notes” that backdoor negotiator Sen Antonio Trillanes went berserk, freaking out and berating her including the whole US government upon learning that, while we were all debating on the rightful sovereignty in the West Philippine seas specially in the Spratly Islands, the Chinese had already been extracting natural gas for two years in the Liwan-1 and Liwan-2 platforms with the surreptitious help of American partners Chevron and CanAm Husky Energy? BTW, Liwan-3 started pumping natural gas in July of 2014.

Pera-pera lang yan. World governments are beholden to big business.

Foreign funders snubbed us for decades, but why are these same entities insisting now that we accept millions of US dollars and Euros, ramming down to our throats huge foreign resources to be used for development projects in the very remote and inhospitable Liguasan Marsh close to Mamasapano even if nobody will benefit from these projects as there are no inhabitants within hundreds of kilometers in all directions? Are there really big reserves of “sweet oil” in these wetlands as indicated by Malaysian and Indonesian studies?

Pera-pera lang yan. World governments are beholden to big business.

Again, our very good friend, the USA, will do anything to “protect” the source of these fossil fuels there to justify their meddling into East Asian affairs.

Who then must the Filipino listen to now?

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.”
– 2 Timothy 3:1 (KJV)

The Tagalog version is more apt:

“Datapuwa’t alamin mo ito, na sa mga huling araw ay darating ang mga panahong mapanganib.”
– 2 Timoteo 3:1 (Ang Dating Biblia)

May the Lord our God have mercy on our country.
