PHILIPPINES – President Duterte orders US troops out of country


AL JAZEERA – Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has told American special forces to leave Mindanao, blaming their presence in the southern region for the continuing conflict, while signalling his desire to “reorient” the country’s foreign policy vis-a-vis the United States.

    Speaking at an event being held in honor of the Islamic day of Eid’l Fit’r in Davao City in July 2016, Duterte challenged the narrative that the Middle East is the root of terrorism. It is not that the Middle East is exporting terrorism to America; America imported terrorism (to the Middle East), he said.

    Last month, Duterte told John Kerry that US ambassador to Philippines, Philip Goldberg (Zionist Jew) is a gay, the son of whore after accusing Goldberg of meddling in country’s election by running a smear campaign against him. During the election Goldberg had accused Duterte for not taking necessary action to save the life an Australian missionary who was rapped and murdered in 1989 prison riot in Davao, the city he ran for two decades as city Mayor.

    United States is the largest supplier of arms to Philippines. Other suppliers since 2008 included France, Germany, Italy, Israel, South Korea, and Poland. In 2014, Manila signed a $20 millions deal with Israel’s Elbit to supply Philippines Army its latest armored personnel carriers including 25 mm unmanned turrets, 12.7 mm remote controlled weapon stations (RCWS) and fire control systems (FCS) for 90 mm turrets.

    Good. We don’t need bases all over the world. The US government should start thinking about bringing most of the troops back home. We have over 1000 military bases in foreign countries. and in Europe all those bases have been there for more than 70 years. Too much waste.
