Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said he has ordered his troops to bomb extremists who flee with their captives in a bid to stop a wave of kidnappings at sea, calling the loss of civilian lives in such an attack "collateral damage."

Duterte has previously stated that he had told his Indonesian and Malaysian counterparts their forces can blast away as they pursue militants who abduct sailors in waters where the three countries converge and bring their kidnap victims to the southern Philippines. He said in a speech late Saturday that he had given the same orders to Filipino forces.

He said he instructed the navy and the coast guard that "if there are kidnappers and they're trying to escape, bomb them all."

"They say 'hostages.' Sorry, collateral damage," he said in a speech to business people in Davao, his southern hometown.

“Do your duty, and if in the process you kill 1000 persons because you were doing your duty, I will protect you,” he said.

“If you know of any addicts, go ahead and kill them yourself as getting their parents to do it would be too painful.”

This week he reaffirmed his hard line approach to drugs and reducing the crime rate.

“More people will be killed, plenty will be killed until the last pusher is out of the streets. Until the (last) drug manufacturer is killed, we will continue and I will continue.”
If its true there is no excuse for this mans behavior. I could see Duterte saying go and fight the drug dealers, but it defeats the entire purpose to go after drug users. The platform of Duterte was standing up to the bully, but clearly by any definition, killing Drug addicts makes one a bully. Either the reports in the media are misconstruing the words of Duterte, or the Philippines has turned into a Godless society.

Grossly exaggerated. Sometimes, the addicts turn to pushing (among others) to support their habit, it is these who are targeted.

I wonder if Duterte is on drugs right now. It looks like this guy is going to be to the Philippines what Norwegian was to Panama.

That's not good. A leader on drugs is very dangerous. Some of the worst people in history were hooked on drugs. One them was Herman Goering who command the Luftwaffe in WWII he was hooked on morphine and Hitler was on so many drugs it wasn't funny.

Try going a day or two w/o coffee...you might have a drug addiction.

Btw Herman Goering helped to save his brother who helped save Jews.
