To eliminate the ASG, Amirah Lidasan, secretary-general of the Moro Christian Peoples’ Alliance, said the MNLF and the MILF need to muster the political will to put an end to the groups that perpetrate kidnappings. It would mean, she said, helping cut the warlords’ power over the communities, as well as their ties with the local government, the military, and the police. “The government will not do anything like that, since Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo even coddles known warlords in Mindanao,” Lidasan said.
