In other countries, like Japan, the people do not need to call for the top official to resign. The official concerned will just perform the traditional "harakiri" to signify his acceptance with valor and pride to own and accept the responsibility for that unpardonable "blunder" that caused the senseless deaths of our 44 SAF troopers. But in our country, I only noticed and admired one man who, even when he is now six feet below, the people still remember him with respect and admiration and he is no other than the late General Angelo "Angie" Reyes who proved his worth as a true leader "worth his salt," by using only one bullet to settle a score, like: "Isang bala ka lang!" I doubt if the present leadership of P-Noy will have the courage to do it in the name of the entire Filipino people who still mourned the "senseless deaths" of our 44 troopers.
