CPP: US drone in Quezon indicates US surveillance and intervention—CPP

Anti-US propaganda statement posted to the CPP Website (Jan 6): US drone in Quezon indicates US surveillance and intervention—CPP

Communist Party of the Philippines
The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) today said the recovery of a US Navy drone off the coast of Quezon indicates continuing US surveillance and intervention in the country.

The drone, recovered by fishermen in Patnanungan, Quezon last January 4, has property markings of the US Navy. It is similar to a drone recovered by fishermen off the coast of Masbate last 2013. “The US embassy has described these as aerial target drones, which, however, can be easily custom-fitted with surveillance equipment.”

“The US military, in connivance with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), has been flying and operating surveillance drones in the Philippines for more than ten years now, in clear and outright violation of Philippine sovereign airspace,” said the CPP.

“US drone surveillance has been targetting operations of the New People’s Army (NPA) in the hope of feeding intelligence information to the AFP,” pointed out the CPP. Similar crash landings of US drones have occurred over the past several years.

“The Filipino people condemn US military intervention in counter-guerrilla operations in the Philippines,” said the CPP. “The US has long been making use of the AFP in its proxy war against the Filipino people’s anti-imperialist forces.”

“The US-designed and -directed Oplan Bayanihan of the AFP and the Aquino regime have brought great hardships to millions of Filipinos who have borne the brunt of militarization in the countryside and widespread abuses of human rights.”

  1. Typical and predictable propaganda/disinformation effort intended to discredit the US government/military. Comments made in the previous post on this incident essentially debunk these propaganda themes/messages propagated by the CPP. The CPP would rather lie and deceive the Filipino people than admit that what accidently washed up on the beach in Quezon was just a harmless US Navy target drone used for gunnery practice that was apparently lost at sea during a naval exercise.
