>News Update Philippine President takes another swipe at Marcos son

>Manila (Philippine Daily Inquirer/ANN) – A day after the 25th anniversary of the People Power revolution, Philippine President Benigno Aquino III still found it necessary to again address Senator Ferdinand Marcos, Jr.�s recent remark that the Philippines could have been a prosperous state like Singapore if his father had not been deposed in 1986.

In his speech during the awarding rites for six individuals that figured in the struggle against Marcos dictatorship, Aquino said the Philippines wouldn�t have become a country like Singapore under the Marcos regime.

�Were it not for Edsa (the name of the avenue that was used during the people power revolution that toppled the dictator Marcos in 1986), we probably could have become another Libya,� Aquino said.

People are now moving to overthrow longtime Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi but the recent developments in the Arab state are proving to be far from peaceful.
