After I posted the news article about the Marines, there is an update from the Palace. Here it is:
MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III has denied that military and police troops would be deployed to respond to the water crisis.
Reacting to the report of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Aquino said that he was not informed of the troop deployment, adding, “You only bring out troops to suppress.”
During a press conference Friday, Aquino revealed that although there has been a request to utilize troops to assist in the water crisis, the request has been withdrawn even before it could be discussed.
Water is one crisis that you can deny while directing the people 's attention to the incoming SONA and to the sins and offenses of the past administration.
Literally, you can not cover the stink with essences. Pag may BO ang tao may BO. Kahit magspray pa yan ng pabango dahil walang tubig na pampaligo, aamoy pa rin yan.
The admin has been denying that there is no water crisis. Bakit tinawag na ang mga Marines?
It’s time to call in the Marines.
While claiming that the worst is over, Malacañang is deploying soldiers and civilian personnel to restore order and avert any riot in at least 177 barangays (villages) in Metro Manila now grappling with water shortage, officials said Thursday.
At least four battalions or roughly 2,000 soldiers from the National Capital Region Command will be tapped for the task as soon as the Department of Public Works and Highways gave the go-signal, the Armed Forces of the Philippines said.
Honestly, ngayon lang ako nakabasa ng ganito. TOINK. Achoo.
Hindi lahat ng tao kagaya ng controversial celebrity who is known for her honesty na bottled water yata ang pinampapaligo.
