Eerie Resemblances To Pakistan's Dilemma

Dean Raul Pangalangan draws the parallels to the Filipino people and their rulers in the saga of Benazir Bhutto and Pakistan's recent political history. He discovers trepidation. Read it all in Passion for Reason.

While almost all Pinoys once considered Cory Aquino a saint. (She was a political virgin) Not all Pakistanis consider Benazir as one. (No sane person would consider Benazir as a political virgin!)

That's the major diff. Even Pervez knows that. I wonder why Dean Raul Pangalangan apparently missed that major difference.

Unfortunately Benazir was on a comeback trail when she was assasinated. What if Cory or a Coryesque character emerged on the scence to challenge Gloriana? What would the Pinoys make of it?

We have some trying to make a comeback. Erap and Fidel. Good God!

You are right Blackshama. We definitely need to do a comeback. We can do better than this!
