Development Through Security?

  • W. Scott Thompson

Abstract

The leitmotif of the Philippine armed forces was to accentuate the interdependence of security and development. General Biazon, while commanding Manila’s security forces, warned against military budget increases. “If we siphoned off more for the military establishment,” he said in a public forum, “then there will be more hunger. The poor will now become easy prey for the communists who will seize the opportunity to stage a revolt and grab power.”1
