Marcos was the worst (2): The SC

By

After the Aug. 21, 1971 Plaza Miranda bombing, President Ferdinand Marcos suspended the writ of habeas corpus. Proclamation No. 889, which allowed the police to make arrests without warrants and to detain the arrested without charges, took effect immediately but was announced to the public only after a few days. It seems clear now that the tactic was a dress rehearsal for the full-scale imposition of martial law the following year.

Filipinos still at sea as to what to do with sovereignty

The problem with Filipino nationalists, including Inquirer columnist John Nery (“Will the US defend ‘a few rocks’ in our sea?” Opinion, 5/6/14), is, they think America should just passively assume the role of a babysitter for the Philippines with no bargaining power whatsoever for its own welfare. Which is why nothing in the terms of the current Mutual Defense Treaty (MDT) between the United States and the Philippines will ever satisfy these people. Nitpickers will always find a reason to complain or, more appropriately, bitch about anything!
