The Story Can Now Be Told

I have said in my previous post, she is a mirror. The people can now see her hands in most "suspicious" dealings of the government.

Where is our love of country? our nationalism, similar to these guys in Georgia?

Why these things happened?

--The current war in Mindanao.

--The disregard of the Constitution, and impending signing of MOA with MILF.

--The number of Filipinos displaced from their homes since fighting began late last week between government forces and Islamic separatists in the southern Philippines reached 130,000 on Monday, officials said. The military and the police sent more troops to fight the rebels.

--Local media reported that thousands of residents, the majority of them Muslims, had been fleeing their homes since Friday, many in carts pulled by water buffaloes.

--Social welfare officials warned of a potential humanitarian disaster as the fighting between troops and elements of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front raged.

All because, probably of one persons desire.Or shall I say greed.

The cat is out of the bag.

“We advocate federalism as a way to ensure long-lasting peace in Mindanao,” President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo Monday told visiting Swiss President Pascal Couchepin.

It was the first time Ms Arroyo talked about a shift to a federal form of government since the Supreme Court shot down a “people’s initiative” in October 2006 to amend the Constitution in a bid to introduce a parliamentary system.


Let me stay in power forever.


To be honest, 9 out of 10 people here in the Visayas wants her out of Malacanang. I believe the rest of the country feel the same. Everyone is just waiting for May 2010 to have a peaceful process and transition.

But if she pushes her way.....the possibility of repeating the February revolution of 1986 is not remote, and I fear it will be more violent, and the people will not be as forgiving as they did to the Marcoses.

That is my forecast.
