Duterte nixes revolutionary gov’t due to lack of military support

Updated

By Genalyn Kabiling

DA NANG, Vietnam — President Duterte is no longer inclined to declare a revolutionary government to quell destabilization attempts due to lack of military support.

The President said he asked the military about the matter and got the same reply given to Vice President Leni Robredo that they were not in favor of a revolutionary government.

“Tama siya. Tinanong ko ang military. Sabi nila, ‘Hindi kami susuporta ng revolutionary government [She’s right. I asked the military and they said, ‘We will not support a revolutionary government’],” Duterte said in a press conference after meeting the Filipino community last Thursday night.

“Sabi ko, ‘Why?’ Sabi nila, ‘Dahil sabi ni Vice President Robredo.’ ‘O bakit?’ Sabi niya, ‘Mas gusto namin siya. Babae at saka hindi nagmumura [I asked why and they said, ‘Because Vice President Robredo said so.’ Why? They said, ‘We like her better. She’s a woman and she does not curse],” he added.

Upon hearing the military’s refusal to support a revolutionary government, Duterte said: “O sige. ‘Di hindi tayo mag-revolutionary government.’ Tama, tama siya [Okay, we won’t declare a revolutionary government. She’s right].”

Robredo earlier obtained the assurance from defense and military officials that they would not support moves to place the country under a revolutionary government. The Vice President thanked the military, saying the people look to them to defend the country’s democracy.

            Those who look for military takeover ay hindi yellow. Proseso ang idea ng pagiging dilaw. Baka ibang kulay yan.

    Wag pakasiguro sa salita di Digonggong. Appointees lang nya yang mga nagsasalita sa military side. anytime pwede nya yan palitan at presto, biglang magbabago ang tono. Yan lagi ang panakot nya basta may hindi masunod sa gusto nya kaya bantayang mabuti yang siraulong Digonggong.

      Our military officers are professionals. People continue to trust them and will not just squander that trust anymore because of just 1 politician who will step down in 2022.

        Sana nga… ibang gumalaw ito si Digong kaya may konting hesitations ako specially nangyari na dati na nagsagupa na ang loyal at kontra dati sa nakaraang administrasyon. pero let’s see. Maging alerto lang tayo at wag makampante sa bawat galaw ni Digonggong.

    Sigurado kami, mas papanig ang AFP ke DND Sec Delfin Lorenzana kesa ke Dotard.

    Sige, subukan tanggalin ni Dotard si Lorenzana sa Cabinet, KUDETA ang isasagot sa kanya ng AFP, o ‘di ba PADEM?

    Otherwise, hintayin na lamang ni Dotard ang PEOPLE POWER na a la bulkang Pinatubo, simisingasing na ng LAVA at nagbabantang SASABOG!!!

      No to People Power. Hindi naman kailangan pa at saka less than 5 years na lang naman ang pangulo sa pwesto. Mabuti nga ngayon medyo mas lumalambot na ang matigas na ulo. Una, sumang-ayon kay Trillanes and now to the VP. Sana patuloy siyang matuto as a leader. Anuman ang plano niya ay apektado ang 100 milyong Pilipino, good or bad.

      I prefer for a sitting president to either resign or go to the process of impeachment to defend him/herself in a right forum. NO to “kudeta”, too. Ipagpatuloy na lamang po natin ang malayang diskusyon o debate. Be vigilant po tayo and continue to expose the anomalies and corruption ng kahit na sinong nasa gobyerno.

    Sa totoo lang po mga kababayan isa naman talagang baliw yan na pumapatay ng tao. At Sana huwag po nating hayaan na magpatuloy na maghasik ng lagim yang si Psycopath…

    TAPON NA SA KULUNGAN SI PSYCOPATH!

        Meron pa bang “DILAWAN”? Hindi ba naglipatan na halos lahat sa partido ang mga nasa LP papunta sa partido ni Mr. Duterte noong naupo siya? Ang mga yon ay oportunista pero ganyan talaga ang politics satin.

        Being yellow is an idea. Freedom-loving people. So, lahat ng malayang nakakabatikos sa gobyerno at nakikipagdebate dito ay considered as “dilawan”.

    Why should Duterte start a revolutionary government in the first place? He would have to rebel against the established order that is his own government.
    Then again, it sounds good in principle, as his government is full of failed promises, corruption, and kowtowing to Beijing. Not to mention a failed ‘war on drugs’ that has resulted in 7,000 dead Filipinos and tacitly protected those responsible for massive amounts of shabu (Pulong, Davao Group, and the ‘magkumpare).
    But then again, his ‘revolution’ will probably get the nation even more of the same punishment. So the AFP not supporting Duterte in his revolutionary government shows that organization has people with basic common sense.
