Aquino vs Marcos Over Nuclear Power—Again!

March 7, 2010 (LPAC) — Twenty-five years after Cory Aquino was used as a puppet of George Shultz and Henry Kissinger to replace Philippines nationalist president Ferdinand Marcos, with the (successful) intention of shutting down the completed nuclear power plant in Bataan, the battle over nuclear power, and the Bataan plant in particular, is again engaged–and by the same Marcos and Aquino, only this time their children. Marcos’s son, Rep. Ferdinand “Bong-Bong” Marcos, responded to the blackouts across the Philippine nation by demanding that the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP) be recommissioned. The 600MW plant is “enough to energize Luzon” (the northern island where Manila is located), said Bong-Bong, arguing truthfully that the plant was closed by Cory Aquino, as her first act in office, for purely political reasons, that “there was no scientific or technical bases made.”
Meanwhile, Sen. Benigno “Noy-Noy” Aquino, Cory’s son, a political lightweight who is the frontrunner for the May Presidential election entirely on the basis of his mother’s role in the fraudulent “people’s power” revolution which overthrew Marcos, is demanding that the Bataan plant remain shut permanently, noting that his mother did not open it because of safety concerns–the excuse used for the imperial act of nuclear sabotage against the Philippines.
Proving his slavish allegiance to the same imperial forces who controlled his mother, Noy-Noy added that there should be no other nuclear plants either, supposedly because of a problem with waste storage, while promoting dependence on the primitive and genocidal use of solar and wind power.
