THERE’S THE RUB
By Conrado de Quiros

One new development is newly appointed Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff Gen. Delfin Bangit dropping in on Philippine National Police Director General Jesus Verzosa for a fireside chat, such as fireside chats can be pleasant in these sweltering days. As an AFP spokesperson put it, if Mohammed won’t go to the mountain, the mountain will come to Mohammed. An inspired metaphor only in that Verzosa can prove to be prophetic and Bangit a real mountain when the time comes, an immovable obstacle to a tide of protest. Verzosa of course has denied that Arroyo snubbed their rites in reaction to his statement that he would oppose any move to extend her term, but the fact remains that Arroyo wasn’t there. She apparently had more important things to do. That alone is proof of it.
