Former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile believed that peace negotiations with the Reds or rebels are useless, thus an extension of Martial Law is a must. 



Enrile viewed the terrorist and rebel issues in the Philippines as akin to sexually transmitted diseases that is difficult to cure.

Diyan nga, hinaharap nga ‘yung problema ng ISIS (Islamic State), at nandito na sa Pilipinas ‘yan,  at parang HIV ‘yan…’pag nadapuan ka niyan, matagal mong gamutin,” Enrile said.

Having witnessed and engaged in combat against terrorists back during Martial Law in 1972, Enrile asserted that it is harder to take down terrorists than communist rebels. 

The former Senator predicted that the terrorism problem in the Philippines can last past the Marawi siege.

Tama ‘yung ginawa ni Presidente Duterte, sapagka’t matapos man ‘yung barilan ‘dun sa Marawi, hindi pa tapos ‘yung problema eh, nandiyan pa sila,” Enrile said.

He emphasized that in these rough times, high security must be ensured by the President and that Martial Law critics should be wary of their statements when the proclamation was explained the first time around. 




Seguridad ng bawat isa sa atin ‘yung nangyayari at ang nakakaalam nga diyan, ang Presidente ng Pilipinas sapagka’t nasa kanyang kamay ang lahat ng detalye, lahat ng impormasyon, lahat ng desisyon, at lahat ng responsibilidad,” Enrile said. 

He said that what the communists really want is to take over the government.

Palagay ko useless na ‘yun eh. Matagal na namin kinakausap din ‘yang mga ‘yan, walang nangyayari sapagka’t gusto nila yung kapangyarihan ng bansa,” he said.

Hindi sila interesado sa negotiation. Ginagamit lang nila ‘yun para ma-propagandize yung kanilang position,” he added.

“Mawalang-galang sa kanila, pinag-aralan ko ‘yan eh. Ang istratehiya ng communist movement sa buong mundo…’yung yanigin ang nakaupong gobyerno para sila naman ang hahawak ng kapangyarihan.”



“Hindi sila nagtagumpay sa Indonesia. Merong mga bayan na ‘di sila nagtagumpay. Dito sa Pilipinas hindi sila nagtagumpay kaya ngayon nandyan pa sila, nagmamartsa pa sila,” he added.
