Here are my thoughts. The Philippines is a sovereign nation. If they don’t want America (military) there America should leave. We have no right to criticize anyone. Our government is beyond corrupt. The world knows the United States leadership are full of hypocrites.
“Most Filipinos approve of the performance of President Rodrigo Duterte, Vice President Leni Robredo, and Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III, a survey by Pulse Asia showed.”
The media is full of lies so this could be wrong but it’s a talking point on multiple websites. Until I see otherwise I’m lead to believe Filipinos approve of their leader.
He’s admitted that children and innocent people have been killed in the campaign, but he has called them “collateral damage” and said, “If it involves human rights, I don’t give a shit.”… “He’s irritated with the US over the human rights criticisms,” said political scientist Richard Javad Heydarian at De La Salle University in Manila.
I would be “irritated” too! The west funds Isis. You don’t think this man knows this? Last time I check Duterte isn’t aiding terrorist who murder non-believers. The west is.
Don’t get me wrong here. I don’t think this guy is a good person. I’m just a avid supporter of free will and sovereign nations. If that country voted to commit mass suicide that’s their choice.
“If you destroy my country, I’ll kill you. That’s a legitimate thing,” Duterte said. “If you destroy our young children, I will kill you. That is a very correct statement.”
“When you bomb a village you intend to kill the militants, but you kill in the process the children there,” Duterte said. “Why do you say it is collateral damage to the West and to us it is murder?”
I see EVERYONE in media and I mean everyone say how bad this guy is but the truth can not be hidden. At the very least American leadership are no better than him.
U.S. to seek explanation of Duterte’s comment on ‘separation’
“We are going to be seeking an explanation of exactly what the president meant when he talked about separation from the U.S.,”
Seek an explanation? Do we have 51 states now? They don’t have to explain anything. You stupid people in government can’t comprehend the definition of ‘separate’? America is losing it’s soft power. This is what happens when you abuse your authority.
I say good for the Philippines. I think every country should kick the American empire out. America was better when we were isolationist. At the very least we wouldn’t be broke like we are now if we still were.
