The Philippines has been fighting a COMMUNIST insurgency for nearly fifty years. This is a movement whose stated goal is to destroy our democratic institutions and impose a Maoist-Communist social order along the lines of North Korea. And yet the national government imprisons General Palparan, a soldier who did exactly as he was ordered — to defend the country against an enemy threat.
It is characteristic of the feeble-mindedness of the Aquino administration and their useful idiots in the media and the 'human rights industry' to be morally incapable of confronting evil. It is the same attitude they have adopted when dealing with the jihadists in Mindanao. Like the communists, they are sociopaths at heart — obsessed with their own tribal desires and utterly incapable of conferring justice or compassion on those outside their inner circle. If you were not one of them, you were a lesser being, and, in their mind, should be treated any way they saw fit.
It is stupid and careless to place the 'rights' and interests of the enemy over the interests of the people you are sworn to serve and protect. It is immoral to elevate the interests of your enemy above your own rights and freedom.
