Noli De Castro always insist that he is a constitutional successor,now he got his wish. He will assume the functions of the Office of the President during Bonzai Arroyo’s10-day trip to the United States of America. It is about time for Kabayan to make Loren jealous who is widely expected to run for president in the 2010 elections,had played a major role in the negotiations,promising livelihood projects for Muslims and at the same time promoting her whitening cosmetic products.
Would it be nice if Noli will deliver his first executive order to wipe out the Abu Sayaff. Arroyo has ordered the Armed Forces of the Philippines to wipe out the Abu Sayaff a million times and Esperon has promised also to finish the NPA’s before he retire.That promise was permanently molded and written in a bucket of water.The order has taken various forms over the years,exterminate the thugs.But, the NPA’s and Abu Sayaf has always managed to bounce back,with new out of school uncircumcised boys joining the ranks of bandits because of hardship in life according to Mayor Snatchi.
Maybe,De Castro can erradicate them within his short term in office or make them surrender and send him their guns via UPS or Federal Express.Maybe Noli can convince them to surrender like the Ramon Magsayasay legacy over the HUKBALAHAP insurgency. If Noli can promise them a free housing if they surrender with centralized airconditioning to cool-off their hot headed, Noli can have a batallion of followers to pull the rope of Nazareno in Quiapo.
Noli must outsmart them first and challenge them in a debate because many of this Islamist extremist groups,including Barack Obama’s best friend Osama Bin Laden,are educated,come from affluent families and are driven by some form of ideology or belief, no matter how twisted. But,the movement they lead thrive on poverty,ignorance and social injustices as what was written on Obama’s book “The Audacity of Hopes”
If they won’t surrender because Noli is not a trusted guy, De Castro should spend some time with our brave troops,who are pursuing violent armed groups in Mindanao.He must witness himself how depressing to see our foot soldiers subsisting on boiled rice and dried fish and coping life on the frontlines.under the constant threat of a fatal ambush, and compare their food,their weapon and even their uniform with the PSG who’s guarding the asses of Bansot in Malacanang.
Come election time people will remember Loren great smile with Ces Drilon after the ransom was being paid,it was also interesting to hear Ces Drilon expressing some sympathy for her Abu Sayaf captors. Ces Drilon is now a household name, more so than it was before this incident. People might remember her as the same reporter who stuck with the mutineers in the Peninsula Hotel,suspected of putting Capt.Faeldon on her pocket for daring escape, getting gassed and arrested with them like it was something to be proud of, delivering real-time news bravely and selflessly in the service of the Filipino. She had more balls than De Castro. Despite Ces suffered a lot of mosquito bites she is simply a sympathetic soul. Some of her captors were just teenagers holding armalites instead of books and pencil in school and Drilon teach these out of school bandits how to pray: Hail Mary, Our Father, one plus one and ABZTE. Ces Drilon can deliver votes to Loren and maybe, Ces Drilon for senator to replace Lito Lapid in the Senate so that she can pass a bill for livelihood project for these Thugs.
