Dec. 7 : New Day of Infamy Recto

The House majority said it will ram through, using numbers over reason, Resolution 1450 early tomorrow morning, December 7, which is indeed a fitting day to launch a sneak attack on democracy.

That day is the 65th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

And if the House juggernaut will succeed, then December 7, 2006 will indeed be remembered as our Day of Infamy.

If not repelled, the House move will leave our system of government in smoldering ruins, and the rule of law in tatters.

The Senate and - this I believe - a Supreme Court of upright men and women will not allow this transgression.

And in the end, just like what happened 65 years ago, Filipinos will rise up to the challenge and defeat this Banzai-like charge on their democracy.
