bad news...

I have never been an aficionado in politics. I find the world of politics erratic and ghastly, the more when we speak about the government of the Philippines. Sad to say, our government has been known for its rot system, full of feud and massive corruption, moreover, it is always in tribulation. Indeed nauseating! It somehow made me feel ashame of being a Filipino. I just might be one of those Filipinos who are sick of their own country and feel that nothing will and can change in their lifetime, so there's nothing left to do but go for the exit.

I never deem to write anything about Philippine politics, not until what happened last week--the failed mutiny and conspired coup d'etat of Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV. I never really understood this display of tantrums. Before this, I found Sen. Trillanes a protagonist, one of those men who would go for a righteous victory. What a faux pas! He is just like any other misguided leaders, seated in our government, struggling for more power. Very disappointing. It is simply unimaginable for a Senator to barge in Manila Peninsula and hide behind the populace in order to "be heard" and evade a court order. Along with the officers of Magdalo, Brig. Gen. Danilo Lim and Capt. Nicanor Faeldon, the (supposed to be) "great" rebellion happened--a six-hour standoff at a luxury hotel. This is the second time around he (Sen. Trillanes) and his cohorts struck, first at Oakwood and now Manila Peninsula. Uhhmmm.. good choice of places, for them, but not for the masses. Clearly, this rebellion is about them, and not for the good of the Filipinos, whom they say they represent. They are simply criminals. These public officers committed crimes against public order, rising tumultuously in order to attain by force intimidation. To whom? For whom? And how was this an excellent action? How babyish?! We get your their point! They hate Pres. Arroyo, and I'm sure many do. They should have respected the law, for the law are the Filipinos themselves.
The PNP and AFP are right for not making martyrs out of these powerful shams. No one should. No one should romanticize them. Who do they think they are? God's gift for the Filipino people??? They are more of a "fake messiah".
