Col. Renato Dugan presents an analogy that communism is just like an avid suitor who looks better than a motorcycle-for-hire driver. He would definitely be an easy choice for a lady. However, a media practitioner comments that the problem with the desirable rival is that, he is not keen to marry the woman. Therefore, the subject ends up marrying the other man. Just like communism, he said. If the government just takes care of an area where insurgencies are rampant from time to time, chances are, the vulnerable residents of the area could soon embrace the communists. PLt. Col. Jonathan Pineda, Deputy Chief, Regional Operations Management Division then explains the relentless efforts of the government to topple communism by 2021. Perhaps, just like the Marcos era.

Region 7 is Full Force to End Communism in 2021
The Government Watches Negros Closely
PLt. Col. Jonathan Pineda, Deputy Chief, Reg. Operations Mgt. Div. explains the government’s efforts in getting rid of communism at the 888 News Forum, Marco Polo Hotel, Cebu. He stresses that in Negros, 3 batallions are staying put in the area to clear up the place from insurgencies. They function as part of the community and conduct regular police visibility for crime prevention.
The PNP Handles Insurgency-Free Territories
Cebu, Siquijor and Bohol are already insurgency-free territories. Siquijor is the first province to gain such recognition without documentation. While Cebu is officially the first certified insurgency-free province. The men in uniform vow to carry on with the government’s aim to eliminate the presence of communists in the country despite the dissenting opinions of the opposition that they only exist as an ideology.
Medical and Dental Missions
Aside from the show of the police force, medical and dental missions are regular activities in the aforementioned areas. These are provided to residents without any cost. Healthy mind and body are crucial in counteracting possible communism affiliations. In fact, their number is not anymore substantial to exist further. They only make noises through the media to make them sound enormous, Pineda said.
Government Support to Eliminate Communism for Good
Former President Ferdinand Marcos imposed martial law on the nation from 1972 to 1981 to suppress increasing civil strife and the threat of a communist takeover following a series of bombings in Manila. Later on, it was found that Marcos actually saved the country from communism. President Rodrigo Du30 constantly expresses his desire to turn the presidency to the late Marcos’ son, Bongbong Marcos – whom he believes as his real Vice President. Currently, he is again in turmoil with the presumptive VP, Leni Robredo. He swears to take her down as drug czar if she continues to share trade secrets with the enemies of the state. He did not elaborate.
