The MILF has tens of thousands of armed men, willing to integrate themselves to the nation. Many of their top leaders are old and ageing, them who fought the war against the PH soldiers and policemen for decades, and realized that endless war is not the option. This realization is important.
But the General did not say, "We won't fight, we will give our guns to those who call for war". He was simply implying that war is ugly, they have seen it and experienced it, and they don't want to do it whenever possible.
