Martial Law's Human rights victims are motivated by greed. All they want is money. Wait, come to think of it, there probably AREN'T any human rights victims at all.. And oh yeah, EDSA 1986? That was a "power grab."
Authentic words of wisdom coming to us from Ferdinand "Mini Me" Marcos jr 16 years ago, as reported in the Manila Times.
It was 1999, and the Marcoses were feeling very good about themselves. After all, not only were they back in power (Imelda and daughter Imee had gotten themselves elected to Congress), Joseph Estrada had just won the presidency. He was a friend of the Marcoses, and had said he wanted to have the repulsive dead dictator's decaying remains buried in a hero's grave at Libingan ng Mga Bayani. Apart from this, his administration was working on a "compromise agreement" that would see the government dropping all ill-gotten wealth cases against the Marcoses, who would be allowed to hang on to a generous portion of their plundered wealth.
