CP of the Philippines denounces plans to intensify U.S. intervention

The following statement is by the Communist Party of the Philippines:

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today charged the Obama regime of plotting to intensify US military intervention in the Philippines in the twilight of its puppet regime amid the highly volatile situation in the runup to the May 2010 elections. US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Garry Reid arrived Wednesday and met secretly with Department of National Defense (DND) undersecretary Antonio Romero, DND undersecretary Arturo Lumibao and other senior security and military officials of the Arroyo regime.

“US imperialism and its defense and security officials are gravely concerned with the continued growth of the Filipino people’s revolutionary armed struggle and the failure of the terminal US-designed Internal Security Operation Plan Bantay Laya to defeat or even cripple the revolutionary movement in the Philippines,” said the CPP. “The Obama administration has also become highly concerned with the volatility of the present elections in the Philippines and the possibility of recourse to military rule to support the extension of the Arroyo puppet regime and suppress the people’s resistance.”
