You elected Marcos generals FVR (to the Presidency) and Enrile (to the Senate, ad infinitum) and didn't ask for any accountability from them--and THEY WERE THERE, JUST AS RESPONSIBLE AS MARCOS--and yet here are the heirs and heiresses ready to return the money and you're hemming and hewing as if naman some other President in history has been able to successfully broker the return of Marcos ill gotten wealth.
Ano ba talaga ang gusto ninyo? Let the cases drag on forever? As you can already see, there's a return of Marcos fanaticism AND Millennials and even younger generations are forgetting or not as affected about Martial Law. They will not have the same kind of fervor nor hatred, and even less passion to pursue the money in 15 years. Have you thought about that? Have you thought that in 20 years there will be no more clamor, or significantly less at least, for the money to be returned? By then, many human rights victims will be gone, and with them the burning rage that can only come from being there themselves.
We need the fucking money you fucking nitwits. As if naman the Marcoses will make a big deal out of returning 10 million pesos. More imporantliest, NI HINDI NYO PA ALAM MAGKANO ANG ISOSOLI NAG REREKLAMO NA KAYO. Mag reklamo kayo kung mag soli lang ng P100 million. Kung di niyo pa alam, huwag kayong maraming kuda.
No other President after Duterte will be able to get any portion of the money. Hello, yung biyuda at anak nga ni Ninoy walang nagawa. If you don't jump on this chance better say goodbye to the billions forever. And then totoong NEVER AGAIN ang drama ninyo.
Ang ipaglaban ninyo ang terms of return. Ang ipaglaban ninyo, ma bigyan ang human rights victims ng malaking portion ng pera (VICTIMS nga pala hindi lang ni Marcos kundi pati ni FVR at Enrile), ang ipaglaban ninyo kung saang department or agency ma pupunta ang pera, Hindi yung ipaglalaban ninyo na wag isoli (que tanga) o may makulong pa. (Si FVR nga ginawang Presidente tapos gusto nyo may makulong, sino?)
And to the human rights victims, I am so very sorry you may never be able to hear the apology you need for closure. I am sorry mukhang wala nang makukulong o puwedeng makulong. Sana si FVR, kasi siya yung pinaka high ranking din, pero wala eh, ginawang Presidente at BFF siya ni Cory. Bumaliktad lang, forgiven and forgotten na. Sana marinig natin sila mag SORRY. Sila naman dapat talaga ni Enrile at ibang generals ni Marcos ang mag sorry sa inyo kasi ruthless sila. Last minute na sila bumaliktad, alam natin lahat iyon. Huwag na po kayo umasa sa sorry ni Imelda. She has her own world na. She completely believes the version of events in her mind, and when a person has retreated into that world, there is no pulling them back.
I am sorry for all you've been through but I hope you will be compensated very very very well--if not for you then at least for the future of your children and grandchildren--by the money we all hope the Marcoses would return soon. This is the danyos perwisyos that should've been yours if the Presidents before Duterte truly cared for your plight and did not just use your cause to politicize.
And to the rest of the Filipino people, you turn down this one chance, you lose. And what a great disservice to this country it will be.
