The anniversary triggered many stories in traditional and social media about the elder Marcos' two-decade regime, including (http://www.ibtimes.com/philippines-election-bongbong-marcos-line-vice-president-30-years-after-father-was-2320430) alleged corruption and human rights abuses . (http://www.bworldonline.com/content.php?section=Nation&title=aquino-at-edsa-urges-millennial-support-vs-marcos&id=123656) President Benigno Aquino - whose mother Corazon succeeded the elder Marcos - urged voters to spurn the son.
But we hope this anniversary triggers a new analysis of why we started this so-called war on terror in the first place.
