A group of soldiers facing charges for a 2003 coup plot called for President Arroyo’s removal Thursday after walking out of a court hearing at the Makati City Hall.
Sen. Antonio Trillanes and Army Brig. Gen. Danilo Lim marched out of a Makati courtroom and joined civilians and uniformed military personnel armed with M-16 and M-14 rifles. The soldiers, some of whom were carrying Magdalo flags, marched along Makati Avenue and entered the Manila Peninsula Hotel.
“This is a withdrawal of support. We are joining our people in calling for the removal of the President,” Lim announced over radio dzMM. He added that they made the call because the President continues to violate the Constitution with impunity by plundering the treasury.
Trillanes also called on the people to join them in Makati. “Magsama-sama tayo. Nanawagan po kami sa taongbayan na naniniwala sa pagbabago. Join us po,” he said.
Former vice president Teofisto Guingona, who was marching with the rebel soldiers, said the move echoes the call of various groups to reject Mrs. Arroyo’s “morally bankrupt” administration. Reports said a group of farmers have already joined the march. [ABS-CBN News]
So Trillanes and Danilo Lim feels they are powerful and influential like that to have the country support their shitty advocacy? Oh. My. God. Stupidity at its finest. I am disgusted to have share something in common with Trillanes, he graduated from Angelicum College, too, which also happens to be my first name. He previously claimed he is knowledgeable of the government attacks at the Glorietta-2 bombing, hey asshole, why didn't you do anything to prevent it from happening like announce it before the actual blast happened? And instead boast of what you knew after 11 people were killed? Oh. My. God. This country is full of airheads.
Oh and Guingona? Go rest on your death bed.
