Yellowtards keep yammering about “weaponising” stuff. According to these whiners, “sinister forces” are out to “weaponise” the Internet. Lately they have latched on to a new notion… “weaponising” the law.
This they apply, in all ironies, to the voiding of the amnesty granted by former Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III to “senator” Antonio Trillanes.
This notion is ironic because Trillanes not only weaponise something to achieve a dastardly end, he used a real weapon to mount that effort. The Army, after all, is a state weapon. Trillanes, in his misguided adventurism back in the early- to mid-2000s used an actual weapon to threaten a sitting CIVILIAN government.
Trillanes, as such, deserves to be thrown in prison. His amnesty was ill-deserved and granted to him for the wrong reasons. This is a mistake that needs to be corrected.
