Of course President Obama didn’t expose 150 corrupt public officials, but the Philippine President just did.
President Rodrigo Duterte continued his war against the “pandemic” that has swept his country.
Drugs and the corruption behind the movement of drugs is overwhelming in the Philippines and the president just called out over 150 different judges, mayors, police, politicians and even members of the military.
The announcement comes in the middle of a very bloody war against the drug industry and this will certainly ramp up the violence.
The president said this during a speech to members of a military camp in Davao city.
“All military and police who are attached to these people, I’m giving you 24 hours to report to your mother unit or I will whack you. I’ll dismiss you from the service.”
Clearly the president is standing up to corruption like few have ever done in that area of the world. To say it is dangerous would be an understatement.
Why do you think he used the term “whack you” if he didn’t mean business? When talking to organized crime, you have to use language they will understand.
Clear language is a lesson that the American president should learn from.
Davao City is a dangerous place and clear, direct talk is needed.
The Philippine National Police recorded 1,032 murders in Davao City, which has come the center of the president’s war on drugs.
Now that the president is calling out over a hundred officials, the courts could be flooded if the president wasn’t taking some liberties with “due process”.
“There is no due process in my mouth. You can’t stop me and I’m not afraid even if you say that I can end up in jail.”
Cleary president Duterte is a brave man and is standing up for what he believes is right, but with the message he is sending to the druglords and conspirators in hiss country won’t land him in jail.
He will either clean up his country or he could be the next victim in the drug war.
Do you think our president should learn something from president Duterte? Let us know in the comments below.
