Reality knocks.

After the EDSA Revolution on 26th February, 1986, in which the Phillipine population overthrew the regime of Ferdinand Marcos, Corizon Aquino became the first woman President of the Phillipines.

The United States of America lead by President Ronald Reagan was in line to help with responsibilities left by Marcos to the new leader and for the cash-strapped and deprived Phillipino people.

NB: EDSA - 'Epifanio de los Santos Avenue' - Highway 54 of Metro Manila where millions of people protested peacefully over four days.
