Fellow PMAer praises Lt. Gen. Parlade for brave stance amid intense criticism as NTF-ELCAC spokesman

In light of the intense criticism that comes with his job as NTF-ELCAC Spokesman, SolCom Chief Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade responded to critics that he is putting his career and even retirement benefits on the line if his claims are false.

Gen. Parlade’s statement has earned the praise of fellow PMA alumnus and his junior officer in the AFP, in the person of Colonel Harold Cabunoc via his FB post with the title, “FULL RESPONSIBILITY.

Col. Cabunoc remarked that whether Gen. Parlade is doing the right thing or not, that is his stance.

“Mali o tama ang kanyang ginagawa, iyon ay kanyang pinaninindigan. Responsibilidad tawag doon.”

Col. Cabunoc described Gen. Parlade’s job juggling two jobs as Commander of an AFP area command and spokesperson of NTF-ELCAC very difficult.

“Napakahirap kasi na terrain ang sinusuong ni Sir Jun sa ibinigay sa kanyang tungkulin bilang Commander ng area command ng AFP at bilang tagapagsalita ng NTF-ELCAC.”

“Ang gyera ay napakasalimuot. May physical na aspeto (bakbakan kontra armadong grupo) at non-physical (gyera sa impormasyon),” Col. Cabunoc elaborated.

Col. Cabunoc showed magnanimity by recognizing the brilliance of the enemies of State when talking about information battlefield.

“Kung information battlefield pag-usapan, nakikita natin ang husay sa deception operations, paawa-pabebe approach, at kampihan pati sa mga kinakaibigan nila na mga human rights advocates sa civilian sector.”

Col. Cabunoc remarked that the Communist have mastered the art of wearing two faces and using this to their advantage.

“Dahil doble kara ang mga komunista, epektibo nilang nagagamit ang batas at mga organisasyon sa pagtatakip sa kanilang krimen bilang bahagi sa pagsulong ng armadong pakikibaka ng US/EU declared terrorist organization.”

Col. Cabunoc praised Gen. Parlade as someone who is a true warrior waging a war against the Communist in the information domain and very effective at that in his job.

“Si General Parlade ang isa sa tunay na tigasing nakikipaglaban sa mga komunista sa information domain. Pag may tinatamaan ang mga pukol nya, ginagawan ng paraan ng mga komunista na makuha ang simpatiya ng mga communicators, human rights advocates, at iba pang sympathetic individuals na tila o kunwari ay hindi alam ang duplicity ng communist insurgency.”

Col. Cabunoc praised Gen. Parlade for not backing down, even putting his career on the line when the counterpropaganda effort of the NTF-ELCAC through him draws flak.

“Kahit ano pa ang kahinatnan ng counterpropaganda effort ng NTF-ELCAC thru General Parlade, pinapanindigan nya ito kahit itaya pa ang kanyang serbisyo.”

Col. Cabunoc ended the FB post by soliciting the opinion of netizens with regards to Gen. Parlade’s stance.

“Ano masasabi nyo sa paninindigan ni General Parlade?”

P.S. Be respectful sa mga ipahayag na opinions.

FULL RESPONSIBILITY Mali o tama ang kanyang ginagawa, iyon ay kanyang pinaninindigan. Responsibilidad tawag doon….
