CPD Law sucks. It's another example of bad legislation crafted with good intentions. Imagine already having a PhD from an Ivy League school, and you have to cough up a lot of dough just to put up with seminars conducted by people who got theirs from diploma mills. Obsolete na nga ang ise-seminar sayo, libo-libo pa ang babayaran mo para dun. Kairita, di ba?

Aside from that bad idea, Trillanes should also be credited for amending the AFP Modernization Law. Without his inputs, our soldiers probably wouldn't have enough toys to quickly deal with insurgents. How long would it have taken our military to deal with the Maute in Marawi without those FA-50s?

Speaking of military hardware, funding for the next phase of military modernization has been slashed. Under whose purview is that?

 

Are you giving credit to Trillanes for the FA-50s? 

 

The FA-50s has been specified by the AFP as part of the modernization program long before Trillanes' stint as Senator. The credit should go to the military leadership and Department of Defense strategic planning staff, not to the politicians.

ANO KA BA CAMOTE? binasa mo ba talaga ang sinabi niya? AMENDED. Meaning binago. Dahil yung AFP moderninzation program na nagsimula kay tabako eh nagexpire dahil sa 1997 financial crisis at pag ignore ng mga namumuno ng nga sumunod na mga taon. Si trollanes ang principal author ng amended law dahil alam naman natin pareho na need ng modern hardware ng mga sundalo. Give him the credit sa pag amend dahil ang mga pulpulitiko na sumunod kay tabako eh kinalimutan na ang need ng mga sundalo natin ng makabago na mga armas. Kinalimutan nila hanggang mag expire ang naunang afp modernization law. Kung hindi dahil sa amended law. Sa tingin mo ba makakabili ng mas modernong kagamitan ang mga sundalo?

Next time camote, mag backread ka. Nahahalata ang kababawan ng utak mo sa mga pagsagot mo sa.mga issue eh.

And I don't think he said that Trillianes specifically said that the military should get the FA-50s. What he's saying is it ENABLED the military to actually BUY whatever was in their shopping list.

 

Military panning to buy anything means squat if there will be no budget allocated to it by POLITICIANS.

Speaking of military hardware, funding for the next phase of military modernization has been slashed. Under whose purview is that?

This is an excerpt from CNN News Online:

 

Bigger budget for PNP, AFP

"...The PNP however still stands to gain a bigger budget this 2018.

Under Senate's 2018 budget, PNP will get P131.628 billion in 2018. This is P20 billion more than its P111.6 billion budget this 2017.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines will also benefit from increased funds. As the military seeks to modernize itself, Senate gave the AFP a P141.860 billion.

In light of the Marawi Crisis, Senate also increased intelligence funds for AFP and the National Intelligence Coordinating Agency (NICA).

To help prevent the emergence of similar threats in the future, military intelligence funds were increased to P137.312 million. NICA was also given an additional P100 million..."

 

I know that the modernization fund and the annual budget are different, but it is hard to understand the logic behind slashing the military modernization fund while increasing the military budget, unless they found a cheaper way to modernize, which I doubt.

 

Can you show us where you got your story that military modernization fund has been slashed? and the reasons behind it?

Have you heard of Max Montero and his little defense blog? That blog has been spot on about the frigate deal fiasco, the FA-50 acquisition, military budget hearings, etc. The blog is reliable enough to be quoted by both local and foreign news outlets, and other defense blogs.

Probably, I'm not sure. Is it the MaxDefense blog?

 

What is confusing me is that AFP modernization is a law. It defines what needs to be procured over a mandated implementation period. Who has the authority to slash what has already been defined by law? And for what reason?

Do you want answers to your question? Or do you already have the answers to them? Share them please.
