Posted on 09/13/2016 6:03:30 AM PDT by sunrise_sunset
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has told American special forces to leave Mindanao, blaming their presence in the southern region for the continuing conflict, while signalling his desire to "reorient" the country's foreign policy vis-a-vis the United States.
Just days after declaring that the Philippines "will pursue an independent foreign policy", Duterte said on Monday in a rambling speech from the presidential palace.
"Not a fan of Americans"
Wants US forces out of the Southern Philippines
Calls the Chinese Ambassador his friend, the US ambassador a faggot.
Wants to buy weapons from Russia and China.
Says drug addicts are "not humans".
Will the Duterte American brigade finally shut their mouths ?
From the headline: “
Days after saying he was “not a fan of the Americans”, the president says he wants to “reorient” foreign policy with US.”
Can’t blame him much. He knows we have an A-Hole in the White House.
Obama has made a total MESS of foreign policy and sadly, the world is reaping the whirlwind.
How can he re-orient towards China, when the Chinese are projecting control over the South China Sea and directly threatening Filipino economic interests?
Well, to be fair, at least half the people in this country are lazy, drooling morons.
The Phip’s love us. Doesn’t matter who is in the palace.
Wait until DJT gets into the White House in a few months.
He is waiting for another “strong man”, DJT to get elected.
How much funding do you get from the USA. Trump will get rid of you like a municipal dumpster.
You no like-y...we no fund-y.
I can’t wait for the Chinese to napalm Filipino’s into their future territory.
Duterte sounds like a modern day Herod.
The world is simply responding to our incompetent traitorous money printing president.
Let the Chi-Coms have ‘em.
Who was elected, so that shows at least some of the people can be fooled some of the time.
And so what. Lots of people stumble and fall. Unless they wallow in it they are not failures.
I’m sure Rodrigo is confident he has a magic wand to make the Communist genie go back in the bottle... don’t you, Rodrigo?
Were it not for Americans, many of whom died on Phillipine soil, Phillipinos today would be speaking Japanese. Duterte is a fool.
Apparently I need to learn how to spell Philippines and Philippino.
In the old days back when we had competent leadership, it wouldn’t matter if he likes us or not.
We’d use him until we didn’t need him anymore, and then he’d end up dead after a coup.
Yep. He’s a heavy handed leader that hates drug dealers, fags, and loves his country without exception. Of course he hates what America has become.
