“The ship of democracy, which has weathered all storms, may sink through the mutiny of those on board.” Grover Cleveland
By Alex P. Vidal
We oppose any attempt to destabilize the government through a coup d’etat or military takeover.
According to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, some retired police generals are plotting to topple the administration of President Benigno S. Aquino III. Any attempt to oust a civilian government is called a military mutiny or act of rebellion.
Coming from a senator and a former military officer to boot, the warning shouldn’t be taken lightly.
When there is smoke, there is fire, so to speak.
We can’t afford to put to waste all the sacrifices and gains made by our government officials these past years to bring back to economic life our country only because of military adventurism.
President Aquino has just delivered his 5th State of the Nation Address (SONA) and was optimistic that the country can rebound from economic doldrums and improve the life of the 100 million Filipino people.Together we must remain vigilant and strongly oppose any attempt to change the system of our government through violence. God bless the Philippines.
