Are you in favor of the long unilateral ceasefire declared by the Philippine Government with the new people's army?
NO. The United States (as well as every other world power) is not considering a ceasefire with Islamic State (Daesh - داعش). The ceasefire recently achieved was between the Assad Regime and the Russian bombing raids that have supported them on the one hand and the elements of the Free Syrian Army (al-Jaysh as-Suri al-Horr - الجيش السوري الحر) on the other.

I think most would argue it was over when a ceasefire was called by the British, unable to continue without a hefty loan from the IMF (which the Americans would not permit without a ceasefire) on 6th November, 1956.
The Paris Peace Accord was signed in January 1973, declaring a ceasefire throughout Vietnam, POWs exchanged and American withdrawal from Vietnam. However, peace wasn't really achieved because North and South Vietnam ignored the ceasefire and continued to fight each other and the communists took over South Vietnam in 1975.
