"I mean, how could I possibly be evil? Just look at this totally bogus painting of my face!" *Mwah* *mwah*


By Alan C. Robles


A few people were prosperous. People like Herminio Disini, Danding Cojuangco, Imelda Marcos. Ferdinand Marcos, junior -- Bongbong -- got his own island, Calauit -- as a hunting preserve. He demanded, and was handed, millions of pesos from a private company, Philcomsat. "What could we do," a company officer said later, "he was the president's son." Imelda turned the Philippine National Bank into her private piggy bank and Philippine Airlines into her personal air service. She bought condos in New York, ordered posh department stores to close their doors so she could shop inside in peace, handed out hundred dollar tips to Americans. Where'd all this money come from?

Marcos ruled unchecked for almost 14 years, free to write his own laws as he went along (after he was overthrown, investigators discovered dozens of secret decrees he'd kept handy for all possible contingencies). With those awesome powers, what progress did he bring to the country? In 1974, the poverty rate was 24%. By 1980 it was 40%. When Marcos assumed the presidency, the country's foreign debt was US$1 billion. By the time he fled, it was US$28 billion. Where'd all the money go? Investigators later estimated the Marcoses stole at least US$10 billion, most of it salted away abroad. Martial Law sustained a plunder economy run for the benefit of the Marcos family, its relatives and associates. Everyone else was just an afterthought.


During Martial Law, not only did the Communist New People's Army increase in strength, from a few hundred to more than 20,000 soldiers, but crime in Manila became so bad that at one point Marcos actually ordered the deployment of "secret marshals." These were armed plainclothes military agents who pretended to be passengers in jeeps and buses, with orders to shoot and kill anybody they thought were criminals.

The worst threat to peace and order was none other than Marcos himself. Historian Alfred McCoy estimates the Martial Law regime killed more than 3,000 Filipinos and made hundreds disappear. Dinampot (picked up) entered the venacular to describe what happened to Marcos critics, who were usually labeled "subversives" or "dissidents." Another word coined under the dictatorship, "salvage" -- murder committed by the authorities -- acquired international notoriety. If there was "peace" in the country it was the graveyard silence produced by fear and repression.


True. He could build and build because it wasn't his money that was being used, it was the taxpayers'. And of course, Marcos made sure he got a cut. The biggest, most famous construction project, the billion-dollar Bataan Nuclear Power Plant, was an overpriced, graft-ridden structure which paid Marcos millions of dollars in kickbacks. His crony Herminio Disini got such a large commission he could afford to flee to Austria, buy a castle and settle down. The country took years to pay off the BNPP. It still hasn't been used. Imelda also had an "edifice complex." She was in such a hurry to have the Film Palace in Roxas Boulevard finished, part of it collapsed, reportedly burying workers alive.

Imelda's idea of infrastructure for the poor was a high whitewashed concrete wall around Manila's squatter areas, the better to hide the poverty and misery, and so avoid depressing passing motorists and tourists.


Actually he was urging his generals to attack, but in front of the TV cameras made a big show of concern over civilian casualties. Reporter Sandra Burton, who was there, wrote: "Viewers had just witnessed another bit of play-acting, or moro-moro, between Marcos and (General Fabian) Ver, which seemed intended to impress upon his official US audience the president's concern for preventing bloodshed, even as the Americans' sensitive communications devices were intercepting his generals' orders to fire on rebel headquarters."

The truth was the dictator's generals were reluctant to attack. According to Beth Day Romulo, one general later said his huge amphibious assault vehicles could have "rammed through the crowds." However, "I didn't want to be known as the Butcher of Ortigas Avenue."

Marcos kept up the pretense. Burton wrote how: " Hyperventiliating again, Ver grew more and more excited. 'Just give me the order, sir and we will hit them.' Marcos, looking reasonable, compared to his bellicose chief of staff, refused. Yet even as he spoke, his generals were ordering Colonel Balbas to stop making excuses and fire the mortars he had positioned early that morning on the golf course inside Camp Aguinaldo." Marcos never let a few broken, maimed bodies stand in his way. He wasn't about to stop.


He refused to share power. He kept a closet full of secret decrees. His word was law. The judiciary, legislative and military were his puppets. If Ferdinand Marcos could claim credit for all the nice buildings constructed during his regime, he should also take responsibility for everything else.

The truth was, Marcos was evil from the get-go. As a young man, he assassinated his father's political opponent -- through a coward's way, sniping from long range in the dark of night. He fabricated a record as an alleged guerrilla leader during World War II. He opened a secret Swiss bank account -- under the pseudonym "William Saunders" -- with Credit Suisse in 1968, years before he declared Martial Law.

Marcos was all of a piece. He intended to run the country purely for the benefit of his family and friends, and to set up a dynasty that would continue the plunder. He was prepared to do anything to hang on.

During the snap election campaign in 1985, he sneered that his opponent, Cory Aquino, was a mere housewife with no experience. Cory fired back with a statement that summed up the dictator: “I concede that I cannot match Mr. Marcos when it comes to experience. I admit that I have no experience in cheating, stealing, lying, or assassinating political opponents.”

Well. I think all these given, I realize one thing. Marcos was GMA's Idol. She wanted to be so much like him but unfortunately she became president at a wrong time because now Filipinos are no longer ignorant.<br />As for Marcos, yes, I think he had his contributions and I wouldn't necessarily agree he was evil from the get-go. I think greed is something you acquire when you know you can get away with things. And he did. Enough to make sure that at least 4 more generations of Marcoses would not die poor. <br />As for @akoy filipino, I hope you do three things: <br />1. read the article before you react <br />2. don't let your 'loyalty' blind you from the facts that there were indeed massive corruption and killings during Marcos time <br />3. learn how to spell correctly before you start ranting on a fantasy that you only seem to participate in. <br />And oh, from what I know, we've never had an Emilda as a first lady. You must've been living in another planet.

Hi, good read, and I like the way you defend your position... Don't worry trolls are a dime a dozen don't mind them.... They are only good for a good laugh... For some it takes a very very long time for realization to set in. Right now medyo fresh pa yung mga nangyari kaya there are still people who tend to lionize Marcos kasi yung mga nakinabang dati buhay pa hanggang ngayon. Tapos ngayon ang siste pa is who ever is against PNoy for what ever reason (most especially those who supported candidates who lost) they tend to gravitate towards the person who they think is his opposite... mainly Bongbong. It's a good thing you remain steadfast marami na nga ang nakakalimot sa mga nangyari dati.

There problem is Marcos is no longer with us, but the systematic culture of plunder he had left behind has been the inspiration of countless politicians who never get enough sucking the lifeblood of our people. Actually what he started as 10% kickback now runs as high as 40%:-(

LOL!<br />Tulad nito ang argumento mo: Si Juan ay may Toyota Camry. Galing sa erpat niya ang pera, Ang iniabot na halaga ay para makabili siya ng BMW. Hindi sariling pera ni Juan ang pinambili ng sasakyan at kinupitan niya pa ito. Ergo, myth lang na may Camry siya. LOL!<br />FAIL!

when he assumed another term of his presidency in 1965, the peso dollar exchange rate was $1 to p1, but due to the abolition of &quot;Breetonwoods Agreement &quot; in 1969, the &quot;equal&quot; exchange rate that was agreed upon by all U.N. member countries was changed to &quot;Floating Exchange&quot; rate so from then 1970 our Peso devaluates yearly even up to the late 80's... ang natatandaan ko P21 to a Dollar na 1984 pa lang...E papaanong hindi lalaki ang utang ng Pilipinas noong panahong yon....isipin niyo lang yung sinasabing $1billion dollar noong second term niya (1965) na hindi lang naman kanya kundi nag mula pa kay Aguinaldo din naman...hanggang kay Diosdado Macapagal, kailangan ko pa bang i explain? Logic lang yan! dun sa mga binanggit na tao may nakulong ba noong ma iupo ng mga Kano si Cory? si Imelda nga hanggang ngayon nandiyan pa! congresswoman pa! Si Danding? asan ngayon nakatago ba? si Disini? bakit nawala? di nahabol? si Bongbong andiyan! nakakulong ba? Senador pa nga eh...Higit sa lahat sino ang nakapagpatunay na si Ferdinand nga ang mastermind ng pagkamatay ni Ninoy? bakit hanggang ang clamor lang ng mga opisyales na ayaw kay Ferdinand &quot;wag lang siyang ilibing sa libingan ng mga Bayani!&quot; yun lang!

Conspiracy between Anti-Marcos and American Government ang dapat sisihin na mga natatakot sa mga pagunlad na kayang gawin ni Marcos sa Pilipinas, kinitil nla ang posibilidad na masama bansa natin sa mga super Powers... Ngayon sabihin nila kung anong naging produkto ng inngit nla at pagsisiksiksa utak ng sambayanang pilipino na kalayaan ang sagot sa lahat.. Walang katuturan ang kalayaan at ikaaunlad kung alang disiplina, wala disiplina ang mga pilipino kaya dapat lang na may Marcos na maghigpit nuon. Aanhin natin ang kalayaan kung gugutumin ninyo ang ating bayan. Nasan na ang mga sinasabi nilang bayani ng EDSA, c Ramos sus yan ang isa sa mga corrupt talaga na naging presidente napakaraming ghost project, cla Aquino ayun sila tong nangunguna sa EDSA ayun mga mayayaman pa din. Bakit ayaw nilang aminin na sa panahon ni Marcos ay umunlad ang Pilipinas, ngayon tanong nila sa sarili nila nung malukluk cla sa kapangayarihan ay napaunlad ba nla Pilipinas.....
