    think you're conflating "Huks" with CPP or the Communist political leadership more generally. I think if you took your average Huk trigger-man in the barrios, they were not openly participating in...

    Hi:

    It was only in 1950 when the PKP politburo decided to call for a revolution which would...
  6. the Huks again

    Charter 6:

    In 1946, the goal of the PKP was parliamentary struggle. This was to be done through Popular Front tactics. The Democratic Alliance was made up of left-inclined liberals, agrarian...
  7. Reagrding the Huks

    Hi Charter 6:

    The Popular Front did not fail in Central Luzon. That was where they got Congressment elected through the Democratic Alliance Party.

    These Congressmen were unseated, allegedly by...
  8. Communist Insurgency in the Philippines (catch all)

    Hi:

    apology

    Selil:

    I apologize for the booboo.

    But in the Philippine context, my statement would have meant, " Does he speak for the US Armed Forces?"

    I stand by the rest of my post.

    on Mr. Patty's series

    Hi:

    Interesting.

    regarding coin aircraft

    Hi Tom:

    Yup.

    Are there still any left in the USAF boneyard?

    If not, how much would it cost to revive production lines?
