[Editor’s comment]: I know this military outpost very well. It is on the national highway between Balingoan (Gateway to Camiguin island) and Cagayan de Oro City. Very last time I handed by had been past week, when we went shopping in Cagayan de Oro. The outpost was composed of some plywood/bamboo huts and a road impediment, that made automobiles and vehicles gradual down when passing the observation barrack.
The major concern is: what does the NPA definitely want?

The NPA collects from business enterprise owners in spots in which it operates. This features mining and logging functions – in particular overseas owned enterprises that offers work to the individuals with the perception that crippling the country’s economic climate would give favor for a revolution to manifest.
