So there was another coup attempt in the Philippines. No surprise there. The newspaper listed previous coup attempts since 1986 and I had a chuckle when I read this:
“July 1986: About 400 soldiers loyal to Marcos seize the Manila Hotel and declare the formation of a rebel government. Mrs Aquino quashes the revolt after 38 hours. The mutineers are given 20 push-ups as punishment.”
A 5th grade student in gym class gets more punishment than this.
