What were they thinking?

Two days ago (December 14, 2005), while I was engrossed on my personal problems, a new government was formed in the Philippines headed by former general Fortunato Abat (stories here and here). The former general declared the:
"existence of a revolutionary transition government and the formation of a transition government council to administer the affairs of government"
Yesterday, the most prominent members of this new government were invited for questioning by the police. (stories here and here) Why they were not just arrested is beyond me.

Which leads me to my original question. What were they thinking? Did they really think the people will rise up for a bunch of political has beens?

And the "revolutionaries" are not your ordinary crackpots, these people used to occupy high posts in the Philippine government. No wonder our country is in such a mess. If these are the kind of people we get in government, we are doomed.

Only in da Philippines.
