Marcos on 'Libingan ng mga Bayani'?

I am not a pro MARCOS nor a pro AQUINO... but I only have this one question...

Should the late President Marcos will be buried in Libingan ng mga Bayani?

I've made a research on the said Libingan ng mga Bayani and how was this created and its purpose. Here's I've found out:

The Republic Memorial Cemetery at Fort McKinley was established in May 1947 as a fitting tribute to the gallant Filipino men and women who brought honor to the country and fought for the sake of freedom and democracy.

On October 27, 1954, the Memorial Cemetery was renamed Libingan Ng Mga Bayani (LNMB) by the late President Ramon Magsaysay. Presidential Proclamation No. 208 was then issued by PRESIDENT FERDINAND E. MARCOS on May 28, 1967, to reserve an area of 142 hectares from the Fort Bonifacio Military Reservation.

This was intended for National Shrine purposes and placed under the administration of the Military Shrines Services, Philippine Veterans Affairs, Department of National Defense. The Libingan Ng Mga Bayani is under the administration and maintenance of the Grave Service Unit (GSU), a unit of the Philippine Army Support, Armed Forces of the Philippines.

The mission of the GSU is to provide grave services to deceased military personnel who died in line of duty or were honorably discharged, FILIPINO VETERANS, FORMER PRESIDENTS, GOVERNMENT DIGNITARIES, STATESMAN AND NATIONAL ARTISTS.

Aside from maintaining the LNMB and the military grave site at Manila North Cemetery, the unit is also capable of providing mortuarial and memorial services to authorized personnel.
My final message:
Aquino and Marcos should reconcile for the country... move on Philippines!

Hi Roy, para sa akin re-res-pituhinko ko ang desisyon ni PNOY, di sya dapat ilibing sa Libingan ng mga Bayani.

Atsaka binasa ko yung purpose na binanggit mo, notice that last two words are " Freedom and Democracy". Can we consider Marcos as an advocator for freedom and democracy?Though,naging progressive ang Pinas sa time nya di yun sapat na dahilan para parangalan syang isang Bayani, his only a dictator.

I like this post.Please pakidelete ang first comment ko, daming mali.lol..

a aking palagay sa dami ng problema ng ating bansa yon na lang ang pagukulan ng panahon.matagal ng namatay ang dating pangulong marcos.Hindi na ito dapat problemahin ng masang Filipino.Ano ba ang gusto ng pamilya nito gawin na lang nila ng sila sila lang wag ng humingi ng approval sa ibang galit sa kanila at inagrabyado nila dahil sa power na gusto nilang makuha.Tama na!
