I called it before he was even elected, and I’ve mentioned it a few times in comments. The USA will not let anything or anyone compromise their strategic position in the Pacific, especially a narcissistic madman like Duterte.
Now let me just say that the following article is in no way proof, even in my mind, that the C.I.A. wants him dead. BUT – It sure makes perfect sense to me. The idiot in charge is trampling all over the USA’s interests in the Pacific. Why? Because they told him what half the world has told him; “stop violating human rights”. He just can’t take criticism, what a shocker for a Pinoy eh?. In his mind, and the tiny little minds of his sheeple, there is nothing wrong with killing people without a trial. And he’s willing to send the Philippines economy on a rapid downward spiral, isolate the country from all the allies that send aid, and defend the country. All because they criticized his methods in this drug war.
And it doesn’t stop there. Seems anyone and everyone who opposes him gets kicked out, unseated, or accused of being a drug lord protector. And he can get the drug lords in prison to testify against them making them look guilty. I don’t know what is the real facts in that case, but gosh, do you see the pattern? Nothing or nobody can get through to him. He is hell-bend on painting the Philippines blood red, and at ANY cost. And so far, the cost is rapidly rising.
Dumbass Duterte is really getting paranoid. And he should be. He’s so narrow minded, and simple minded, he, like most Pinoys, cannot see past the tip of their nose. He’s claiming he’s received reports that the C.I.A. wants him dead. I’m not sure how he could possibly get such reports, but again, it really makes sense if it is true.
HANOI— President Rodrigo Duterte has received reports that the Central Intelligence Agency wants him dead.
He made the remarks in his speech before hundreds of Vietnam-based Filipinos on Wednesday night at the Intercontinental Hotel.
“Sabi nila. pa-plano-plano raw ang CIA na patayin ako. Susmaryosep, ginoo,” he said in his hour-long, rambling speech.
He was then discussing how he would not go to war against China over the territorial dispute in the South China Sea.
In the same speech, Duterte promised to end the Philippines’ joint military exercises with the United States.
Early this week, he also claimed that the U.S. disliked him.
Prior to mentioning the alleged threat from the American intelligence agency, the President said he will not abandon the arbitral tribunal’s ruling which favored the Philippines’ claims over the West Philippine Sea.
“There will always be a time to reckon the thing with. When that time comes, sabihin ko sa China, ‘ito ‘yung amin. I will talk to you but I will not go out of the four corners of this paper.’ Pero it is not the time to die,” he said.
Duterte then added that he will not send his soldiers to war and be massacred in a battleground like Palawan.
“Naloko na. Eh kung dalhin natin doon sa San Francisco OK ako. Oo, ‘yung China, mamili kayo diyan. Pero mag-away tayo tapos gawin mong battleground eh paalisin ko kayo, pati ang America, ‘umalis ka diyan,’” he said.
He then claimed receiving reports that the CIA wants him dead.
Duterte then joked that he would ask the intelligence agency to give him more time to get used to being the Philippine president.
“Until now I cannot even believe that I am the mayor. Bigyan mo muna ako ng panahon mag-isip bilang presidente,” he said before jumping to another topic. TVJ
