Warning If sensitive to Swear Words – Do Not continue reading. Duterte is by no means a smooth-tongued politician but I can understand his hatred of drug dealers. Obama has not had a very good trip so far. You can bet mainstream media will ignore this.

Obama CANCELS meeting with Filipino President Duterte
after he called him a ‘son of a bitch’ and warned him not to question his war on drugs
which has claimed 2,400 lives
Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte has been dubbed ‘The Punisher’.
After winning elections in May this year he has urged citizens to kill suspected drug users and dealers.
More than 2,000 people have been killed since he took office and the death toll is set to rise even further.
‘We will not stop until the last drug lord, the last financier and the last pusher have surrendered,’ Duterte said.
He warned President Obama not to question the death toll of his war on drugs or ‘son of a bitch I will swear at you’.
Obama has now opted to meet the South Korean President instead.
President Rodrigo Duterte warned Barack Obama not to ask about extrajudicial killings, or ‘son of a bitch I will swear at you’ when they meet in Laos during a regional summit.
Obama had indicated earlier that he was going to bring the issue up, saying he would address the need to approach the drug trafficking war in a ‘way that is consistent with basic international norms’.
But Duterte warned that he is a leader of a sovereign country and is answerable only to the Filipino people.
‘Who is he to confront me?’ he said, adding that the Philippines had not received an apology for misdeeds committed during its U.S. colonization.

I can’t help but snicker over this. Duterte is right, it is time to end the drug culture destroying nations. I may not condone his harsh methods but I do understand his right as leader of his country to do everything in his power to clean up and save his people. I am not so sure in the long run that this will not end up being the only way to remove this cancer.
Besides, it was very nice to see someone unafraid and willing to speak plainly to Obama.
There is certainly quite a difference there between how Obum treats law enforcement and how Duterte does. Just sayin’.
