Philippine’s Leader tells Barack Hussein Obama to ‘Go to Hell’
Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte Tuesday told US President Barack Obama to “Go to Hell” and said the United States had refused to sell some weapons to his country but he did not care because Russia and China were willing suppliers.
In his latest attack, President Duterte said he has lost respect for its long time ally, and railed at its concerns about his bloody war on drugs, calling his critics “Fools” who could not stop him carrying out a campaign that has killed more than 3,400 people in just over 3 months.
In an angry and profane speech in Manila, President Duterte said the United States did not want to sell missiles and other weapons, but Russia and China had told him they could provide them easily.
“Although it may sound shit to you, it is my sacred duty to keep the integrity of this republic and the people healthy,” Duterte said in his 2nd televised speeches Tuesday.
“If you do not want to sell arms, I’ll go to Russia. I sent the generals to Russia and Russia said ‘do not worry we have everything you need, we’ll give it to you’.
“And as for China, they said ‘just come over and sign and everything will be delivered’.”
His comments were the latest in his daily dose of hostility towards the Mr. Obama, whom he called the Son of a Whore, and United States, during which Mr. Duterte has started to contrast the former colonial power with its geopolitical rivals Russia and China.
Sunday, he said he had got support from Russia and China when he complained to them about the United States. He also said he would review a US-Philippines Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement.
The deal, signed in Y 2014, grants US troops some access to Philippine bases, and allows them to set up storage facilities for maritime security and humanitarian and disaster response operations.
He said the United States should have supported the Philippines in tackling its chronic drugs problems, but instead criticized him for the high death toll, as did the EU.
“Instead of helping us, the 1st to hit us was the US State Department. So you can go to Hell, Mr Obama, you can go to hell,” he said.
“EU, better choose purgatory. Hell is full already. Why should I be afraid of you?”
According to some US officials, Washington has been doing its best to ignore Mr. Duterte’s rhetoric and not provide him with a pretext for more outbursts.
While an open break with Manila creates major problems in a region where China’s influence has grown, there so far have been no serious discussions about taking punitive steps such as cutting aid to the Philippines, 2 US officials said Monday.
Several of Mr. Duterte’s allies Monday suggested he act more like a statesman because his comments had created a stir. On Tuesday, he said his outbursts were because he was provoked by criticism of his crackdown on drugs.
“When you are already at the receiving end of an uncontrollable rush, the only way out is to insult,” he said.
“That is my retaliation.”
This dust up is the latest example of Mr. Obama’s foreign policy failure, that includes Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Russia and the UK and EU. Some of which is down to former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is now begging American voters to promote her to US President and Commander-in-Chief.
Lets hope and pray that the American voters are not as infinitely stupid as described by Albert Einstein, and elect her President.
