Because of this longstanding communist conflict, the Philippine government is unable to control and develop large parts of the country. The insurgents planned their attacks and secured weapons and funds locally. They have strong roots in  different regions they operate and have proved hard to defeat. On the other side, the government’s counter-insurgency approach had diminished their numbers but has not been able to destroy the organization.
