All-Out War Against Corona

“War is a brutal and ugly enterprise. Yet it remains central to human history and social change. These two facts together might seem paradoxical and inexplicable, or they might reveal deeply disturbing facets of the human character (notably, a drive for dominance over others). What is certainly true, in any event, is that war and its threat continue to be forces in our lives.”

In the pursuit of justice, we need to wage an all-out war against the perpetrators of the criminal acts.

Recent events graphically demonstrate this proposition: think of the impeachment and eventual resignation of former Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez, the arrest of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, the Impeachment complaint against Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona, the arrest of former Comelec Chairman Benjamin Abalos, the arrest warrant for retired Major General Jovito Palparan Jr., and other ongoing events more appropriately should be called “the war on the former Arroyo administration”.

The past years under the governance of the Arroyo aministration had been savagely scarred with intriguing and controversial political warfare, thus we all have high hopes and expectations going into the year 2012.
