25 For the same reasons, indirect (or unintentional) assistance, such as the Japanese gave to Mao Tse-tung by mauling Chiang Kai-shek’s Kuomintang armies, and to Ho Chi Minh by humiliating the French, was unavailable. 26 That factor in itself might have proved decisive in the long run, although the Huks were doing well enough without such aid up until 1951. But, beginning that year, they encountered the effective policies of Ramon Magsaysay. In contrast to the failed methods of the Japanese Army and Quirino’s Constabulary, he greatly improved the military’s treatment of civilians, put into practice a workable amnesty program – both of which steps led to invaluable intelligence – and increased military pressure on guerrilla areas.

Why the Huks Lost The most obvious weakness of the Huks was their inability to receive outside assistance. Certainly, such aid is no guarantee of insurgent success: witness the Greek Communists, the Viet Cong, and the IRA. But help for the insurgent side from foreign sources played an important and sometimes determining role in conflicts such as the American War of Independence, the Spanish revolt against Napoleon, the anti-Nazi insurgency in Yugoslavia, and the Afghan struggle against the Soviets.

Consequently the opposition Nacionalista Party won a landslide victory.
