Must be very painful to be corrupt and be investigated by people much more corrupt than you but acting as if they are very clean. Except for Haide Mendoza, all the people in the investigation room were not exactly clean.

this was his chance to be a real soldier but instead he chose the easy way out. what was he thinking – that his death will stop the skeleton from walking out of the closet? it might be unchristian of me but it was a very coward way to die…sana ginaya ni si Lacson, wait and see, TNT ng TNT until someone friendly comes along…

An honorable death? This man chose the only way an honorable person will do. He committed what the Japanese calls “seppuku” rather than continue to be humiliated and to dignify the accusations from less than honorable men who were his subordinates and in the Senate.

On the contrary, seppuku is done by a person who has shamed himself due to cowardice, a dishonest act or loss of patronage. In other words, seppuku is NOT an act of an honorable man, rather an attempt of a shamed or defeated man to regain his honor.

I think General Reyes’ suicide is the latter.

It is more honorable to take one’s own life than to live with bended knees in shame.

Now the question, do you have the courage to commit seppuku like what General Reyes did? I submit, that not a single person is not corrupt as this culture of corruption was instilled by Marcos and ingrained in us. We have, one way or the other, participated in this very culture that we now abhor. But what can we do? It will take a whole generational change to effect what we pray and hope for.

I like making deals, preferably big deals That’s how I get my kicks.” – TRUMP: The Art of the Deal (the book found beside the dead body of late Gen. Angelo Reyes who allegedly committed suicide.)

It was an obvious admission of the truth but there are probably other factors that he has to consider like the safety of the lives of his own family. Pity that he had to be a victim of the former administration’s corrupted system. Pity that despite of being a general, he doesn’t have enough courage to tell the truth.

I think guilt got the better of Gen. Angelo Reyes…plus the fact that he couldn’t really come out in the open without opening the can of worms containing the other worm-partakers and the more “greedy” ones. There’s really something more than meets the eye when he asked Rabusa if he, Reyes, was greedy. It’s too bad that maybe for all his idealism before, got swallowed by the system of corruption and dipped his hand in the “cookie jar” himself. Be that as it may, may his soul rest in peace. And sana, Mrs. Reyes come out and turn over to the government the assets/cash that she knows are clearly ill-gotten. Otherwise, his death would have been in vain…wishful thinking.

gusto ko na sana maglimos ng awa until i saw this spokesperson of the Reyes.

aba bigtime talaga, first time i saw a military personnel having a spokesperson. it says a lot to the kind of lifestyle the Reyeses have.

Kung gusto niyo ng simpatya mula sa sambayanan, ang una niyong gawin ay ito – wag niyong isiping mangmang ang mga Pinoy. Forgiving yes, easily forgets yes pa rin, siguro matiisin din pero ang isipin niyo na engot ang Pinoy at makikiiyak sa inyo ng ganun na lang – wag po. You will just get the same indifference that the Pinoys accorded the Marcoses when the ex-President died.

Perhaps there are “truths” especially when it comes to the military, that should not be revealed to the public. The systemic corruption should be addressed internally because the enemies of the state are watching and just waiting to take advantage. Besides, whats the use of revealing all the names of involved generals in the halls of the senate? Will it lead to prosecution and eventual conviction and incarceration? No! You would need further proof for this, right? What is certain is it will satisfy the ego of granstanding senators and the thirst for blood of those who are after personal vendetta.

I think the definition of seppuku here is misconstrued. Seppuku is very honorable in ancient Japanese. Taking away one’s life is not honorable while being involved in so much corruption because he not only failed in his duty as a soldier but he also failed in his duty to his real boss…the Filipino people. Thus he does not deserve to die honorably.

The current president – PNoy – as he wants to be referred, to has definitely made a huge impact to the consciousness of everyone that his “Ako ang boss ninyo” speech has corrupted and confused our minds. A bourgeoisie pretending to be a Magsaysay.

On Seppuku, while it may not be acceptable to us Catholics, but taking one’s life is viewed as an honorable death. And this is still being practiced today not only in Japan but also by loyal adherents of Islam.

Thus, it may be hard to fathom what Gen. Reyes had committed but we cannot take away the fact that he had the courage and the singular purpose to welcome death and to meet his Maker the way he did.

Do we have the balls to that?

Juicemio! 2 days after that TV report, I chanced upon Kabayad sa office ng boss ko, nakipagkamay pa nga siya sa akin (na-starstruck ata saken! ahihihi!).

After that visit, wa na ang illegal logging report, di na nabanggit ulit. Life went on as usual, parang wala lang.

Even if their gripes were with much basis, I think mounting that munity at Oakwood was not proper. Oakwood (now Ascott) is private property. Trillanes’ group did so much damage to private property and private lives of those living there. Wala sa lugar ang mga actions ni Trillanes. Even his spending as senator while in prison is also questionable. Now his behavior in that Senate hearing where he was very overbearing to a resource person, Gen. Reyes was also very out of line. Gen. Reyes may be guilty to some extent but he was not the one under investigation in that hearing. The guilt of Gen. Reyes was his succumbing to the corruption endemic in the system instead of trying to do somethingf to correct it when he had the opportunity. But under PGMA, it would have been impossible under PGMA’s regime. Sayang si Gen. Reyes, he should have distanced himself from PGMA when it became very obvious that PGMA and FG are the worst of their corrupt kind. To think that Gen. Reyes abandoned Erap…he should have likewise abandoned GMA…but instead he allowed himself to be swallowed by the system of corruption in the AFP even if he says that he was not “ganid”.
