Theories have been flying around about the who and the why behind the alleged bombing of Glorietta Mall last week. Although maybe I shouldn't refer to it as bombing anymore, in light of new reports saying that it there were no bomb blast materials in the scene, and no bomb crater to support the bomb theory. They also said evidences are pointing towards an accidental gas explosion.
I had quite a discussion over lunch about it, before the new information came out and everyone agreed that it was indeed, a bomb. A friend of mine wouldn't dismiss the idea that it could have been the government behind the apparent diversion, what with all the talk about ZTE and the new Impeachment case they are drafting. Also, it did happen on the same day that those 3 bishops called for the President to resign, which I found completely absurd, by the way. I mean, they wanted to remove the President, but said they were not supporting any Politicians or other groups. So, if they got their way, what then?!?! We'll have a practically headless government!(Noli who?)
But going back to my lunch discussion, my opinion is this: I do think that those darn Politicians grandstanding and blaming the government for every little thing are over the top and should just be ignored. (Trillia-what?) I honestly think GMA is smart enough to recognize that the Martial Law tactics of creating chaos to be able to wield the government's controls against it is an easily recognizable strategy, and that she knows the Filipino people will not hear of it anymore.
In any case, 11 people died in that tragedy. One of them, the wife of Carlo Cruz, who's email has been circulating in our offices.
I pray for their souls and the families they left behind.
