GNN's HTL: The Views of Cuba & Venezuela on the military action against LIBYA

GNN's Herman Tiu-Laurel (HTL) talks with Ambassadors Manuel Perez Iturbe of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and Juan Carlos Arencible Corrales of the Republic of Cuba about the 'No Fly Zone' [read: military intervention] imposed by United Nations but led by what can be called the imperialist triumvirate: United States, United Kingdom, & France.

Ang pananaw ng mga kakamping bansa ng Libya--ang matatapang at HINDI tuta-ng-Kanluran, ang Venezuela at Cuba.

Don't believe everything the imperialist Western nations feed you, people. :)

ILPS Condemns US-UK-French Imperialist Triumvirate's War of Aggression on Libya

By Prof. Jose Maria Sison
Chairperson
International League of Peoples’ Struggle




WE, the International League of Peoples’ Struggle, condemn in the strongest terms the imperialist war of aggression being launched by the United States of America, United Kingdom, France and their allies and puppets against Libya and the people of Libya.


This war of aggression is a gross violation of the national sovereignty and territorial integrity of Libya. It is being carried out under the pretext of saving the lives of Libyan civilians but in fact it is planned to kill and injure great numbers of Libyans and destroy not only the air defense capabilities but also the social infrastructure of Libya, as earlier demonstrated in the devastation of Iraq.

The objective of the imperialist powers headed by the US is to install a puppet regime of ultra-reactionary pro-imperialists masquerading as democrats but shamelessly flying the old flag of the defunct Kingdom of Libya and to tighten foreign monopoly capitalist control over the oil, gas and other natural resources of Libya and the Libyan people.

The bombardments by war planes, cruise missiles and naval artillery so far carried out against Libya by the Western imperialist powers are the beginning of a multi-phased scheme to destroy the economic, social and defense facilities of Libya, allow the Libyan puppets to receive weapons from abroad, exacerbate the conditions of civil war and ultimately throw wide open the door to the imperialists as in Iraq.

Unlike in the other mass uprisings in North Africa and Middle East where anti-imperialist, communist and other Left organizations are involved, ultra-reactionary politicians and military officers long cultivated by the Western powers through educational and military exchanges are overwhelmingly and openly in control of the anti-government actions in Libya.

We call on all member-organizations and allies of the ILPS throughout the world to initiate and participate in campaigns and activities to arouse, organize and mobilize the broad masses of the people against the imperialist powers headed by the US for launching the war of aggression and likewise against the Libyan puppets. ###

Corruption in the Philippine Air Force early on exposed by Capt. Joenel S. Pogoy

 (Transcript of the video by Jesusa Bernardo)


Before the revelations made in line with the Senate probe on AFP comptroller Carlos Garcia, there was the expose made by Capt. Joenel S. Pogoy. In this 2008 video, Pogoy discusses the corruption in the Philippine Air Force, which is basically centered on the illegal cannibalization of two (2) of the at least four (4) C-130 planes to supply the spare parts of those allowed to fly. The wanton corruption lies in how the cannibalized spare parts are passed off as brand new, complete with procurement papers. After this video was uploaded to YouTube, Capt. Pogoy was detained for two years, almost losing his life after an apparent poisoning attempt inside his cell. (More about his story here).








MAALAB na pagbati sa mga Pilipinong may natitirang pagmamahal sa Inang Bayan. Dahil sa inyong buwis, ang Philippine Air Force ay dapat simbulo ng inyong dugo, pawis, at paghihirap. Kaya nais kong iparating sa buong sambayanan ang tunay na estado ng inyong Philippine Air Force na kinabibilangan ko.

Kaya bilang piloto at opisyal ng Philippine Air Force, obligasyon ko na pangalagaan ang mga eroplanong ipinagkatiwala ninyo sa amin upang kami ay makapagserbisyo ng tapat lalong-lalo na sa panahon ng trahedya, kalamidad at iba pang pangangailangan ng bayan.


Konsepto ng PAF


PAF STRUCTURAL SET-UP

Ang konsepto ng inyong Philippine Air Force ay ganito: mayroon tayong mga eroplano. Mayroon tayong mga sundalo at sibilyan, at mayroon tayong badget mula sa Kongreso.


PAF BUDGET

- ang badget ng PAF ay nakalaan unang-una sa gasolina ng eroplano, pambili ng piyesang [ka]kailanganin sa buong taong liparan ng eroplano, at sapat na deployment fund para sa mga gulong ng mga eroplano.


PAF SOLDIERS' BUDGET

Ang ibang badget naman ay nakalaan para sa sahod ng mga sundalo at sibilyan, pagpapagawa ng mga barracks, pambili ng mga office materials, pambayad ng kuryente at tubig, panggastos ng sports activities, at iba pang operational expenses ng opisina.


PAF AIRCRAFT ACCIDENTS

Taon-taon lumiliit ang bilang ng ating mga eroplano dahil lagi na lang [may mga] bumabagsak. Taon-taon din ay halos walang pagbabago sa bilang ng mga kasundaluhan dahil laging may mga pinapalit na mga bagong sundalo sa mga nagreretiro na.

Nguni't ang pinakamasaklap sa lahat ay taon-taon ay palaki ng palaki ang badget ng Philippine Air Force.


PAF BUDGET vs. PAF AIRCRAFT

Pakonti ng pakonti ang bilang ng mga eroplano habang palaki ng palaki naman ang badget ng Philippine Air Force taon-taon.

Tapos hanggang ngayon, napipilitang mangupahan ng tirahan ang karamihan sa ating mga Air Force soldiers dahil wala daw sapat na pera pampagawa ng barracks. (SOLDIERS NO QUARTERS!)

At hanggang ngayon, kahit alam nating lahat na palagi tayong dinadaanan ng bagyo, iilan lamang mga eroplano ang ginagamit sa panahon ng kalamidad. Panoorin n'yo na lamang ang ilang mga videos tungkol sa bagyong Ondoy at trahedya sa dagat para sa inyong dagdag na kaalaman. (BINULSA NG ILANG MGA PAF OFFICERS!)


PAF SYSTEMIC CORRUPTION

Ngayon, atin namang tingnan ang halimbawa ng C-130 para maintindihan ng lahat ang sistematikong katiwalian sa mismong hanay ng mga opisyal ng Philippine Air Force.

Sa inbentaryo ng PAF, mayroon tayong at least apat (4) na C-130 at ito lahat ay pwedeng lumipad sa umpisa. Nguni't ang ginagawa ng mga magiting na PAF leaders ay dalawa (2)lang ang pinapalipad na angkop sa yearly allocated flying time at ang dalawa naman ay kinakahuyan lamang ng mga piyesa (AIRCRAFT FOR CANNIBALIZATION).

Sa procurement papers ng aircraft spare parts ay lahat tama at legal kaya lumalabas na ang piyesang binili para sa flying operations ng dalawang eroplano ay lahat bago. Pero ang katotohanan ay marami sa mga piyesang iyon ay kinahoy lang mula sa nakaparadang [mga] eroplano.

So ang resulta ay ibinasura ang dalawang eroplano pagkalipas ng ilang taon kaya ito ang naging C-130 ninyo. Ang C-130 ng inyong dugo, pagod, at paghihirap.



PANG-MUSEUM BA ANG GANITONG EROPLANO?

(Pero bakit nagkaganito ang ating mga C-130? [shows video of grossly cannibalized inside of plane])

Maniniwala ba kayo na ang videong ito ay kuha ko galing sa eroplano sa museum? Museum ba kamo?

Kung ito nga ay galing sa Museum, eh di anong aral ng kabayanihan ng inyong mga opisyal ng Philippine Air Force ang maihatid natin sa bagong henerasyon ng mga Pilipino? Sa walang pakpak at binasurang mga eroplano.

Mahalaga pa ba iyan? Pera n'yo at pera nating lahat ang pinaglapastangan ng ilang mga opisyal ng Philippine Air Force. Kaya dapat lang na magpakisa tayo upang tigilan ang talamak na katiwalian.

Kaya magmula ngayon, ating i-demand na sa susunod na pagbagsak ng eroplano ng Philippine Air Force ay dapat na idaan sa masusi at publikong imbestigasyon para matapos na ang mga kurakot na mga opisyal ng Philippine Air Force. Titigil lamang tayo sa demand na ito kapag mangangako si Lt. Gen. Oscar Rabena na wala nang babagsak na eroplano ng Philippine Air Force sa loob ng limang taon.

Ito ang inyong lingkod, Capt. Joenel S. Pogoy, na nagsasabing ang patuloy nating pagpapakabulag sa garapalang katiwalian ng ating mga lider ang siyang tunay na sanhi sa patuloy nating pagkakalugmok sa matinding kahirapan.

Gising na, dakilang Pilipinas!

Endangered Philippine Species as found in Arkive.com

Note: The following species 207 species were found by simply typing "Philippines" in Arkive.com's search engine. It's possible that the term "Philippines" were simply included in the discussion of a number of said species. All links go to the www.arkive.com website.


THE following is a list of endangered species found in the Philippine archipelago. Endangered by gross exploitation and mismanagement of the resources of the Southeast Asian archipelago. Alam kong mga Pilipino/Taga-Ilog ang pangunahing biktima ng halos tuloy-tuloy napamahalaang Dilaw sa loob  ng 25 taon. Ginigisa, sinisipsipan ng dugo, at halos i.silya elektrika sa taas ng kuryente--ang isa sa pinakamataas sa buong mundo. Subali't ang dating mayamang kalikasan ng Pilipinas ay biktima rin ng ganid na mga Dilaw.

Let's us at least be aware of these wonderful, Philippine endemic species or migratory species that visits the archipelago.* All the following data have been taken from www.arkive.com, a website that makes use of photographs and videos to turn the spotlight on endangered species in the hope that by "revealing what these species look like, how they behave and what makes them special," people can act together to save them from the brink of extinction.
