    Seven police commandoes have been killed in a bomb and gun attack by communist rebels in the northern Philippines, officials say. Rebels from the New People's Army (NPA) ambushed the group as they made their way to a medical exam. Their truck was hit by an explosion, after which the militants opened fire, police said. Seven other commandoes were also injured in the attack. The incident took place near Allacapan, 400km (250 miles) north of Manila. Those who died were members of an elite counter-insurgency police unit, reports said. The NPA has been fighting for a communist state for more...

    You hear him at the end of nearly every NPR broadcast. The host wraps up the news. And then on comes the mystery voice, reading the underwriting credits. The voice utters authoritarian decrees, postulating that "Silk is soy" or asserting that "ADM" is "supermarket to the world." And then there's the payoff line, as the steady elocution of the mystery voice waxes ever so slightly on a solitary word. "This is NPR. National Public Radio." If Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) gets his way in the House of Representatives today, the mystery voice may have to alter his patter. "I want...

They were tough in poor Balto as well, with seven people shot to death. (Baltimore should be one of the jewels of the East Coast, but of course, it's no such thing. I wonder who's been running the place the last century.) It was nearly as tough in Chicago, with twelve shot and three dead. But when has there ever been good news from the Windy City?

    MANILA, Philippines – Philippine soldiers killed seven communist rebels in a clash north of Manila on Thursday, as government troops pressed their campaign to end the 40-year-old insurgency this year, an army spokesman said. Troops encountered about 30 New People's Army guerrillas in Bulacan province, triggering an hourlong battle that left seven dead, one of the highest fatalities among the rebels in recent weeks, Lt. Col. Arnulfo Burgos said. Rebel spokesmen could not be immediately reached for comment.

    MANILA, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / August 27, 2008) – The Philippine Army on Wednesday confirmed government reports that Muslim rebels and have forged an alliance with communist insurgents in Mindanao, where security forces are battling the guerillas. Colonel Daniel Lucero, commander of the Army’s Civil-Military Operations, said the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the outlawed New People’s Army have forged a formal alliance as early as in 1999. “In fact, an informal agreement has been in existence since the late 1980’s. The formal link between the NDF, represented by the Mindanao Commission, and the MILF was forged in 1999. The...

    The Moro Islamic Liberation Front has forced about 1,200 Christian farmers to flee from a village in the southern province of Mindanao. This is confirmed by the local police, who withdrew from the area in order to avoid an armed conflict with the rebels. This situation deteriorated last week, when Malaysia withdrew its mediators from the province, the stronghold of the Muslim Filipinos. Garcia, a local farmer, recounts: "The Islamic Front arrived suddenly and claimed their forefathers owned the land we are farming, and at gunpoint told us to leave. Police were not allowed entry, so they backed off to...

    SADDAM HUSSEIN'S REGIME PROVIDED FINANCIAL support to Abu Sayyaf, the al Qaeda-linked jihadist group founded by Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law in the Philippines in the late 1990s, according to documents captured in postwar Iraq. An eight-page fax dated June 6, 2001, and sent from the Iraqi ambassador in Manila to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad, provides an update on Abu Sayyaf kidnappings and indicates that the Iraqi regime was providing the group with money to purchase weapons. The Iraqi regime suspended its support--temporarily, it seems--after high-profile kidnappings, including of Americans, focused international attention on the terrorist group. The...

    SOUTHERN LUZON, Philippines, April 29 (Reuters) - From his coconut leaf hut deep in the forest, Gregorio Rosal, one of the Philippine's most-wanted men, smiles in admiration at the recent success of Nepal's Maoist rebels. "Their advance has been inspiring," the chief spokesman for the communist insurgent New People's Army (NPA) told Reuters. "The protracted people's war that Mao practiced in China." Nepal's rebels loosely aligned themselves with mainstream political parties and forced the autocratic king to cede power this week.

"Pakistan is very sorry and is very upset and has taken all appropriate action in dismantling the underground network," Kasuri said. "Dr. A.Q.

To Rene Tua, a union activist whose father and grandfather also toiled on this land, it's a bittersweet vision. "I don't think it's fair for one family to own such a large piece of land. The farmers are the original owners ... and they should be given their land back," he says. The mill fell silent last year after unionists rejected a pay offer and led nearly 6,000 workers on strike. A week later, several men...

    MANILA, Philippines -- Communist guerrillas on Monday renewed their threat against U.S. troops on training missions in the Philippines, saying the deaths of American soldiers in Iraq prove they can be killed despite their superior military power. The Communist Party of the Philippines and its armed wing, the New People's Army, accused the U.S. government of attempting to crush their insurgency by supplying weapons and training to Filipino soldiers. The rebel army marks its 36th anniversary on Tuesday. The United States has about 100 soldiers in the Philippines as part of annual training exercises. Washington considers the communist rebels a...

Leaders said they want Bush to advocate for the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, a bill that would permit immigrants who have lived in the United States for at least five years to apply for legal resident status once they graduate from high school. The measure would eliminate provisions of current federal law that discourage states from providing in-state tuition to undocumented student immigrants.

    Hidden under a lush canopy of trees in the southern Philippines, a group of excited youngsters prepare for their graduation ceremony. There will be no caps and gowns, but the graduates are sure of a job -- attacking town halls and police stations and ambushing army patrols across sprawling Mindanao island as the latest recruits to the world's most resilient communist insurgency. They will also demand money from mining companies and plantations and run "political education" classes in remote villages, adding to a growing national security headache for the government as May 10 national elections approach. Comrade Oris, in...

    Several hundred people stormed the small yard of President Bush's chief political strategist, Karl Rove, yesterday afternoon, pounding on his windows, shoving signs at others and challenging Rove to talk to them about a bill that deals with educational opportunities for immigrants. Protesters poured out of one school bus after another, piercing an otherwise quiet, peaceful Sunday in Rove's Palisades neighborhood in Northwest, chanting, "Karl, Karl, come on out! See what the DREAM Act is all about!" Rove obliged their first request and opened his door long enough to say, "Get off my property."

    Tax-Funded Attacks Against White House Employees?! [Call for Action!] Imagine you take a temporary job with your local school board, and that you are trying to encourage better educational standards. Let's say some school employees don't appreciate your changes to the curriculum. So, one Sunday afternoon, they grab the keys to a few school buses, fill them with a couple of hundred activists and impressionable kids from their classes, and truck on over to your house. These activists unload the adult instigators and the kids, and they surround your house and pound on your windows and scream at you all...

    THE ROAD to peace is paved with body bags. This seems to be the message of the National Democratic Front (NDF) in its on-and-off peace talks with the government. After signing with the government over the weekend the Oslo Joint Statement, a tentative roadmap to peace that is more prayer than map, it dispatched New People's Army (NPA) guerrillas to ambush a police and military convoy in Masbate province and kill nine policemen. The double talk is vintage NDF. After making a peace sign with the right hand, it pulls the trigger with the left. After toasting peace, it explodes...
