Some Reasons for Opposing U.S. Aid to Marcos

  • Author(s): Schirmer, Daniel Boone
  • et al.
Abstract

The political question facing the voters in the United States is this: Will they allow an escalation of U.S. military and economic aid to the dictator Marcos to occur, carrying with it the threat of U.S. intervention Vietnam-style, to save the 2 - 3 billion dollar U.S. corporate investment in the Philippines and the imperial military bases? Or will the U.S. voters and taxpayers insist on an end to all military and financial aid to Marcos (or to any other repressive and puppet regime that may follow) so that the Philippine people may, at last, be allowed to determine their own destiny without United States interference?
