Destabilization plot may be possible
For once, I would very much appreciate it if the likes of Sen. Trillanes would keep their mouth shut and avoid conveying irresponsible statements to the public.
Obviously, he is inciting a military destabilization, and in this dire situation of our country, a coup is the least that we need, much less people like him. It does not help in any way or form to try taking advantage of our demoralized forces due to the loss they suffered recently to overthrow yet another president while the insurgents are spreading havoc in Mindanao.
The least he can do is to motivate the AFP further and not the other way around, or he should just shut up (as I mentioned before). Besides, coup, revolts would only drag this country back to square one - replacing bad leaders with an even worst and then the cycle will start all over again. Why can we just move forward?
It's only a cruel reminder to people that Philippines is not only the impeachment capital on planet earth, but also the reigning coup d'etat country of the world. While some actors of the previous military uprising are now senators, and others have been given juicy positions in the government, it is common knowledge there are tens of thousands of wannabes out there who're just waiting for their own opportunity too.
Ask the old, accomplished coupe players like Honasan, Lim, Trillianes, etc., and they'd tell you the rewards are so high, while the risks are too minimal. In fact, if you keep fighting for it, you might even get elected to Congress, or in a worst-case scenario you get appointed for a weighty position at customs. So there, that doesn't sound too bad, does it?
