Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has no real battle experience, and is only a late comer in the so-called Oakwood mutiny, a siege by the Magdalo Group on July 27, 2003 during the administration of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. This is according to a netizen, who claimed that his close friend is a former mistah of the senator, and told him a story. Read below.
“He told me that Trollanes has never experienced combat & was a pencil pusher in the NAVY office all thru out his career as a soldier meaning he always wants to be assigned in offices to avoid combat.” Facebook user Cated J Paul wrote at Duterte Today Facebook community page this Friday, January 20, referring to his friend as a Trillanes mistah.
“Trollanes is dissapointed also because majority of the group are now with the PRRD admin only a few left on his group that includes the party list congressman named Gary Alejano who keeps on defending Delima too.” The netizen added, noting that Sen. Trillanes was then called as Boy Hotel because he always hide in hotels when plotting a coup.

In addition, Paul emphasized that the real brain and leader of the Magdalo Group was then Army Capt Gerry Gambala, and that Trillanes (from Philippine Navy) only joined the Oakwood Mutiny 2 weeks before the coup. Apparently, Trillanes became more famous than Gambala because he allegedly volunteered himself to be the group’s spokesman.

“He (Sen Trillanes) is a paid political mercenary but has no balls in actual combat and confrontations ika nga puro daldal lang at porma na parang asong ulol ….he was never a combat officer and a be medaled soldier.” The netizen further wrote, adding that Illongos and Trillanes’ mistah used to call the former solider as talawan, Visayan word for coward.

As of posting, Sen. Trillanes has not yet commented on this latest criticism against him. This Friday, Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano dared him to resign with him, as proof that he does not want the senate presidency. This is after the soldier-turned-politician accused him of a plot to oust Senate President Koko Pimentel. In his response, Trillanes said, “Mauna ka.”
