ARMANDO DUCAT and the hostage crisis is still the talk of the town, and one wonders how much attention this drama would have merited from politicians-turned-negotiators if this had not happened in an election year. Here's an excerpt from myepinOy's take on the political mileage that the hostage crisis generated:
While the hostage crisis is ongoing, two of our senatorial candidates, Allan Peter Cayetano and Dominique Coseteng, went on national television blaming the administration and Gloria Arroyo for this hostage-taking problem. Typical of the dreaded and rotten politicians all over the Philippines, these two can not help themselves but salivate at the opportunity and media mileage that this unfortunate incident would give them. How sweet to hear them talk about the reasons why the situation happened? But hell no! We Pinoys already know what the problem is. We know that they are part of the problem why Jun Ducat did this and we know their selfish motives.
