During his maiden speech Duterte asked for his people’s help to rid the country of drugs, promising to reward them with medals and cash for shooting dead troublemakers.

“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.”

C'mon...this is embarrassing for Russia.

Hey, there are wild tribes in the Amazon that Putin could be friends with. What do you think? Great business opportunity.

The cheapest and most practical way to get rid of a problem is to kill the people causing it.
Justice, fair trial, imprisonment are luxury goods costing money better spent elsewhere.
If in the process innocent people get killed, thats collateral damage, and hey, if they were around, they probably were guilty of something anyway.

Preemptive killings usual works well. A good defense is a strong offense.....and all that.

I've read about it. Saudi Arabia sitting on the women's rights committee is an outrage.

You have to realize that 100% of the hate being directed at Russia today is coming from the hard-Left in the West. It is largely fabricated, but so was the previous 100 years of support from the Left.

The Leftists in the EU and the US know that Putin is a nationalist, not a Globalist, and to them that is exactly the same thing as being a Nazi. Nobody should be allowed to be "too" supportive of one's own nation. It is all about tearing all the nations of the world down so that they can live in their perfect little world without borders.
"International" rather than national, and with just one Central Government Uber alles.

In a very real way, it is a monster of the USSR's own making, all of the most fanatical ones are Communists, and the rest pretend not to be while espousing all the basic tenants of Comintern.

Some of you like to rage against the US because we sent some Stingers to the Mujahideen, and therefore "created" Al Quaeda and all other Jihad Terrorist cells of any kind ever since.

But in this case, Russia is reaping a whirlwind of it's own deliberate creation over the course of several generations of intense work to divide and destabilize the West.
The dead hand of Lenin guides braying mules that control our legal systems, our Universities and our entertainment industry. And now it has come full circle; Russia itself is the target of those who need Boogey-man to blame for every setback, and eventually a War to distract from the failures of Socialism at home.

It is a terrible an unjust thing, and I would help you fight it if I knew how.
However, I don't think you folks would accept that, and you might even kick me in the teeth before it is even over... so, where does that leave us?
