Philippines Duterte to Obama: 'Go to Hell'

VOA News-- "The comments were in response to Western criticism of Manila's anti-drug campaign that has killed more than 3,000 people in three months... Duterte has repeatedly threatened to scale back his country's longstanding military cooperation with the U.S., saying he will move closer to Russia and China."

New York Daily News-- "... furious that the U.S. hasn’t helped in his mission to kill drug dealers and users. “So you can go to hell, Mr. Obama, you can go to hell.”... "Hitler massacred 3 million Jews,” he said Friday. “There's 3 million drug addicts. There are. I'd be happy to slaughter them."

I Say, Right Back Ya A-hole!
I realize the civilian population may not feel this way, but they need to shut this guy up or pay the consequences. According to one set of figures in 2012 we gave the Philippines almost $200 million that year. For over 25 years we lent them money to buy military equipment (almost $66 million in 2016). According to Forbes.com-- "He didn’t name the countries but added that his defense secretary and “technical people” in the armed forces would visit China and Russia to “see what’s best,". This is the thanks we get !

I'm all for turning the other cheek but this is ridiculous. United States shouldn't let this jerk push us around while he sells out his country to the highest bidder over fears Russia or China will end up with this piece of dirt. No doubt many world leaders being called "the son of a whore" or being told to "go to hell" wouldn't stand for it. Neither should we.

I'm not saying we should go to war over it, but we sure as hell should cut them off immediately both financially and diplomatically until they apologize. I can't help but believe every other world leader watching this play out will think they too can kick our ass around if we don't react. If this guy thinks he'll get a better deal from Russia or China, go for it. See how that works out. When it doesn't don't come knocking on our door

We are the nation that recognized your independence and sovereignty since 1946 when we relinquished our rights to both of these. Ever since that time sending tons of money and support. Are we supposed to continue sending money while standing by saying nothing as this leader slaughters thousands of his people while insulting us? What kind of message does this send to other countries?

This ungrateful bastard needs to be sent and very clear message we won't stand for it. There's only such much mud we should allow to be rubbed in our face Hell knows we have our faults but in this case for all we've done for this country we don't deserve this kind of disrespect. If this doesn't trigger a reaction, what will?
