Rodrigo Duterte - Gwedin - 10-12-2016 02:44 PM

Discuss this fella.

He seems hell bent on ruining the Philippines' relationship with the US and sucking China's cock instead, despite conflicting claims over the whole South China Sea debacle.

"About 250 Philippine business executives will visit Beijing with President Rodrigo Duterte next week as he puts aside years of hostility to seek a new partnership with China at a time when tensions between Manila and its traditional ally, the United States, are mounting."

I've got half a mind to think he's a Chinese puppet but China is increasingly becoming a massive power so maybe with such close proximity it is a good thing to be looking to taking advantage of their massive economy?

And of course there's his treatment towards drug users in his country. The use of drugs is definitely a problem in the Philippines, but there must be a better way to go about it than straight up death squads.

..I generally don't have high hopes for a leader when their solution for ending drug abuse is essentially the Holocaust but instead of Jews, it's junkies. That just shows you can't make actual solutions and will just resort to fear and violence to fix your problems.

He's the physical incarnation of 4Chan, now running a country.

Oh boy. I'm half-Filipino and I'm not particularly thrilled about this guy. His ruthlessness is kind of scary. I'm not too thrilled with these death squads; it sounds as if he's doing away with a clear trial.

The fact that he's crude in the way he refers to people, reminds me of Trump. To be fair, Trump hasn't outlined a plan to set up death squads though.

I don't like how he wants to imitate Hitler. I wouldn't go so far to call him the human 4chan though. At least not yet.

Your theory he's a Chinese puppet is interesting. This article says that he wants to increase ties to Russia and China. https://www.rt.com/news/360677-duterte-turn-russia-china/ I also know that China built cities in Africa; it would be interesting if they started the same in the Philippines. Then there's the fact that in the Philippines, many in the Chinese-descent community are business types. This article might also be of interest: https://www.rt.com/news/362395-duterte-china-philippines-washington/

Yeah this is what bothers me too. I wouldn't even necessarily be opposed to him cracking down hard on drug use but to do so through such savage means isn't something I can support. It says "I'm completely ok with a 3rd world justice system and have no desire to go beyond that". Not to mention the potential massive corruption accompanying this method

If one's trying to shit on the US Russia's a goto power but they're a shadow of their former self (and far more interested in Europe anyway) so it's worth focusing more on China here. Russia isn't able to project force in the pacific in the way that China can, not to mention China's far more ambitious in the pacific than Russia. Russia might sell them some military equipment but I don't think much more will come out of a relationship between the two. Idk, it's probably better to wait and see what comes out of this upcoming meeting http://www.reuters.com/article/us-philippines-china-visit-idUSKCN12C0OW
"Duterte said on Tuesday he will also probably visit Russia after a trip to Japan this month."

Quote:I also know that China built cities in Africa;
I only know that China has a lot of workers residing in East Africa but piss all beyond that. Would like to know more about this.

Yes, definitely. I'm not aware of any safeguards to make sure that only the drug traffickers will be targeted.

Here's an article: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-18646243 Strange that they built this city outside their country. Even stranger still that not too many people (African or Chinese) have moved into it.
