Denial of Marcos Burial in Libingan ng mga Bayani
QUESTION: Sir John, pag si PNoy ba mamatay, pwede ba siya ilibing sa Libingan ng mga Bayani?
ANSWER: Hindi pwede. Si Cory nga hindi pwede eh. Only heroes of Philippines War can be burried in Libingan ng mga Bayani. The Armed Forces of the Philippines is the institution mandated to determine who gets burried in LNMB. The determination is professional and not subject to public opinion.
In the case of Ferdinand Marcos being subjected to political opinion and being brefused burial in LNMB, that is obviously political persecution and barbarism. This is my promise, as a politician, when my time comes, I will correct the mockery of history and personally watch over the transfer of F Marcos to LNMB.
On his grave in the LNMB, I will surely have it written on the huge brass marker the story about "over 25 years of persecution of the Aquino Family against this particular war hero whose right of proper burial in LNMB is unfairly subjected to public opinion. The future generation will learn from history. The future shall never forget that during the Aquino regime, poverty grew in unmanageable proportions and politicians mocked over the war heroes of this nation."
The burial of late Pres F. Marcos in Libingan ng mga Bayani must be highly supported. He may not be a political hero, but he is a war hero. Libingan ng mga bayani is for war heroes, by which the determination is done exclusively my the Armed Forces of the Philippines, not by the tides and preference of any political administration.
Nakagawa na ng determination ang AFP, so dapat i-Execute na lang ni PNoy ang command. Tingnan mo etong si presidente nonyong si PNoy, wala talagang bayag bilang Commander-in-Chief ng AFP, walang bayag mag decision. Inuuna pa ang political make-up powder niya, pinasa pa nya kay Binay ang trabaho. Napakawalang bayag.
When PNoy decided to delegate to VP Binay the task of resolving the issue of Marcos burial in LNMB, I call it a Presidential Self-Castrating Decision.
Naalala ko noong araw sa panahon ni Rizal. Merong mga revolutionary na discriminated na doon lang pwede ilibing sa libingan ngmga Intsik.
QUESTION: Sir John, pero commander in chief naman sila ahh,ganun?
ANSWER: Pwede Commander-in-Chief during war time. Wala namang war during the Cory Presidency. Kailangan merong Congress-declared War and naka earn ng medal ang soldier during war time. The determination is based on military record, nothing else.
Ang isang war hero, may karapatan ilibing sa LNMB, kahit ano pa mang kalokohang ginawa nyan after the war, kahit naging massacre-king yan epekto ng psychological warfreak. Ang pagka war hero ng tao at ang karapatan niya malibing sa LNMB ay hindi yan pwede i-subject sa good moral character test nor political opinion, nor legislation, nor court decision, nor public opinion.
