Another coup attempt

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.
