    Hey folks, I think we just had a call for change of government. General danny lim just made some announcement on the news. They would like to take control with the blessing of Trillanes and ginguna (senators)

    don't know more yet...

    Lim made a lengthy speech denouncing PGMA, and calling her presidency illegitamate, without mandate from the "people". citing a laundry list of corruption accusations, they stated that they will form a new government based on a congressional mandate. Their words.

    It is inconclusive from what little I have seen, that any power has actually transferred at his point. Aroyo has hunkered down behind gaurds, and Lim and his supporters have made only statements at this point. Basically holding a press conference in Makati.

    Looks like another tempest in a teapot coup. sooo much posturing and a stand off at the Peninsula hotel. At least they picked a 5 star place. 3 pm deadline for surrender came and went, guess it's Philippine time. Lim and Trillanes hold up on the second floor. What were they thinking. Swat team stationed outside right now.

    Trillanes just spoke and they have surrendered, will walk out to spare any further violence ,They say...
    Coup over it appears, sorry to interupt the cheese burger and Chat.

    Amazing to see the tank drive through the Peninsula front door.

    Hubby actually rang me about this silly coup .I don't know what they could do even if Gloria is completely out, still the same,even worst I could think of,all BUWAYAS again. The fact that they are calling for that stupid bobo f**ing corrupt ESTRADA to replace , the worst unimaginable to happen for this country , brains in the bottoms ,he should be rotting in jail .Those soldiers and that dumb Triliianes and Lim should be locked up in hell never to get out. If ever they get loose again best thing perhaps get rid of them completely :mad: :mad: :mad:
    They just saw chaos and disarray ,nothing for the good the majority poor.They tend to copy the pakistan coup, thinking the could muster some support similar to the crowd of Binazzer Bhuto in Pakistan.How stupid is that ,thnking perhaps that ugly pig Estrada can get the masa around them.
    Despite this tiny woman kind of two faced , and with anomalies but she has initiated better track in improving the economy through her policies compared to the others in the past .Nothing can compare with an economist /intellectual leader than those bloody filipino educated political crappies and bobo actors shiite to them all , it's greed again!:mad: Speaking of all devils ,better the devil you know than the Devil you don't know about.

    This just shows how power corrupts people. They all want to be the one in power so that they can use it for their own personal good, with no thought of how it would affect the country as a whole.

    In the PI we have a 24-hour comedy show here called the government and a huge reserve of comedians made up mostly of politicians and bad actors. :D
