President Trump has invited Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte to Washington to develop a mutual North Korean strategy

Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte is a no-holds-barred, no-prisoner-taken fighter in the war on drugs. Since “Duterte Harry” took office on June 30, 2016, nearly 8,000 drug dealers and users have been shot dead in extra-judicial killings by Filipino cops and Duterte-inspired vigilantes.

The death toll of drug dealers and users has given human rights groups apoplectic fits. He has been condemned throughout the western world. But Rod has some allies in South East Asia. President Joko Widodo has all drug dealers in Indonesia executed. Prime Minister Najib Razak has all drug dealers in Malaysia executed. And Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has all drug dealers in Singapore executed.

In a phone call to Duterte over the weekend, Trump invited him to come to Washington to develop a mutual strategy on North Korea. That has human rights groups shitting in their pants. How dare Trump invite this brutal violator of human rights?

When I was in the Philippines this past Christmas and New Year, I found that Rod was extremely popular with the Filipino people. They approve of his no-holds-barred, take-no- prisoners approach in dealing with their country’s drug problems.

Personally I prefer Duterte’s approach to that of former president Obama who had the Justice Department order the DEA not to enforce the federal marijuana laws in those states that had legalized pot for medical and/or recreational purposes. When Obama condemned Duterte’s tactics, “Duterte Harry” reacted by calling our president the “son of a whore”, the Filipino equivalent of “son of a bitch”.

Considering the shared dangers we face with Kim Jong-un, it was only right that Trump invited “Duterte Harry” to the White House. The human rights groups will just have to go on shitting in their pants.

Allies are not necesarily your friends, and are not necessarily nice people.
