Quiapo bombing alleged to be part of efforts to put Duterte in a bad light – NewsInfoLearn
Suspicions have risen that the Quiapo grenade bombing was possibly spearheaded by people from the opposition in order to shame President Rodrigo Duterte during an international summit.
“The Quiapo grenade bombing coming after the media hoopla about a case in the ICC by Jude Sabio against President Duterte might be intended to send a message to the participants of the ASEAN meeting in Manila that Duterte faces wider opposition to his regime than actually is,” Jose Alejandrino reports as reposted by Adolfo Mortera.
Alejandrino suspects that it might have been Senator Antonio Trillanes IV or terrorist groups linked to ISIS that carried out the grenade bombing, however, the circumstances remain to be investigated by the Philippine National Police (PNP).
Alejandrino further asserts that these are destabilization efforts to paint Philippines as an unsafe country to live in because of Duterte’s reign.
“As I wrote before, I expect destabilization to continue until Duterte is removed and replaced by Robredo,” Aejandrino said.

The Quiapo grenade bombing coming after the media hoopla about a case in the ICC by Jude Sabio against President Duterte might be intended to send a message to the participants of the ASEAN meeting in Manila that Duterte faces wider opposition to his regime than actually is. It could have been carried out by a disgruntled group of the Opposition hatched by the likes of Trillanes or by terrorists affiliated with ISIS or even by both working together. We should not discount any possibility, but this is for the PNP to investigate.
In my previous postings, I had warned about possible bombings in cities, but did not expect it would be blatantly carried out during a major international meeting hosted by the president.
There is nothing more despicable than the loss of innocent lives. Such acts of terrorism are undoubtedly the work of desperate people out to destabilize the country to show to the outside world the Philippines is no longer safe.
As I wrote before, I expect destabilization to continue until Duterte is removed and replaced by Robredo. The established order will not accept change. The oligarchs, druglords, the political Opposition and their cohorts have too much to lose. They will fight desperately to the end.
The shift to direct violent action in concentrated hubs like cities heralds a new ballgame. If unabated, it could force the president to declare martial law which might be the real purpose behind the bombings. To show to the world the dictatorial nature of the Duterte regime like the Marcos regime.
I have said before the president should not fall into this trap. The better way, I had suggested, was for the people to give him extraordinary powers, like the Turkish people gave recently to Erdogan who was facing the same problems as Duterte. This is the democratic way because the will of the people is sovereign. Once armed with these powers which are wider in scope than martial law, the destabilization will stop. The Opposition will then realize the game is over.”
