The New People’s Army (NPA) “warrior” Jevilyn Cullamat is now dead. Her grieving mother, Bayan Muna Representative Eufemia Cullamat, described her as a “martyr” too perhaps hoping that some meaning could be harvested from the utter senselessness of her passing at the age of 22. Sadly it is unlikely that any meaning in hers and the “martyrdom” of other dead combatants of the NPA will ever be forthcoming. “Fighting” — much less dying — for an obsolete cause, after all, is not exactly the best pathway to lasting historical significance nor, at the very least, a “glorious” death (whatever that might mean).
The eminent World War II general George S. Patton was said to have stated it far more succinctly and to the point…
“No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making some other poor dumb bastard die for his country.”

…in the process highlighting (1) the lameness in the necropolitics of the Communist-Yellowtard Axis of what is today’s Philippine Opposition and (2) the whole point of war that evidently flies over the heads of their “thought leaders”.
The Philippines, not exactly renowned for its martial tradition (not to be confused with its proud tradition of Martial Law Crybabyism), would do best to learn what it really means to wage war. War is all about killing the enemy. In more technical terms, it is all about destroying your enemy’s capability to inflict casualties on your side. And, yes, in war there are sides. Neither one is necessarily the good or the “evil” as the tards of the Opposition like labelling political camps. There are only groups of fighters out to kill the other — which is neither good nor bad but just is.
In a war, we all want to be on the side that is set up to win — the one with the best weapons, the one with the best warriors, and the one with enough thirst for its enemy’s blood to use those resources effectively and without hesitation. When one side makes itsef out to be a “victim” in a war, this is the best time for the other to attack. This is why the idea of choosing to be a victim — which the communists and the Yellowtards have turned into their preferred strategy nowadays — is ridiculous. The smell of fear coming from your enemy is your cue to go for the kill.
Victims get victimised even more when they advertise their victimhood.
So when one dies in a battle in a war one chose to fight in, let’s all be good sports and not be big sissies about it. Soldiers are expected to fight well and die well — not be crybabies about any form of victimhood their leaders should actually be concealing from enemy spies. To that, perhaps we owe some credit to Rep. Cullamat who made no apologies about her daughter “Ka Rep” dying in the “war” being waged by the NPA against the Philippine government. But shame on her “woke” comrades who dishonour Jevilyn by making her out to be a “victim”.
