Duterte sounds like he's taking over the drug business for himself.

Time for America to make another thug leader a billionaire.

"Time for America to make another thug leader a billionaire."

If Don Duterte isn't already a billionaire. By murdering all of the drug dealers, Duterte could very well be wiping out all of the competition so he can have the whole pie for himself.

Send for Steven Seagal to sort this out. Or alternatively to tell us what a great guy Duterte Harry is.

The witness was caught lying point blank 4 times by Senator Lacson and the press and most people here believed him?

This guy claimed he knows General de la Rosa but retracted his statement when the General said it's the first time he saw this guy?

What's happening to the 'free' press' when they are not even verifying their story?

I think the CIX is promoting destabilization process in the Philippines right now.

What they don't know or anticipate is the country will split into one PH and signals the birth of the Federal Republic of Mindanao.

Do some research first before commenting.

Duterte is trying to save his country's youth from drugs.

17,0000 pushers and their boss have so far surrendered, about 6000 were arrested and 1076 killed when they shoot it out with the police and about 2600 killings are investigated by the police that are either drug related or not. Some of the killings were between drug syndicates.

Give the new PH government some fair coverage for after all 93% of Philippinos supports his government and only the rich and powerful oligarchs which owns most of the press are against him.

Philippine is not USColony. And it sends their people to people shortage Japan. Is this true? how come its immigrants do not tell in Japan?

Senator Cayetano, Duterte's running mate for VP who lost, was trying to grill the Senate witness about which senator belongs to which party and if, for example, Duterte gets ousted, who will replace him --- for chrissakes, the guy was busy shooting, strangling and killing people, cutting up bodies and digging graves, slicing and opening them up like dried fish to be thrown into the sea for disposal just a few minutes off Davao City, so please, excuse his ignorance, if he cannot answer questions about succesion in government.

Why does the news not also mention that the Chairman of the Senate hearing is under investigation herself for her drug links in the national penitentiary with her driver-lover as the protection money collector?

That she refused to attend the congressional hearings against her?

That as Justice Secretary she was not able to prove that the mayor have death squads so the case was dismissed by the Ombudsman?

This is sounding like those Japanese press who said that Okinawans are pro- US base!

Philippines President Duterte 'once killed man with Uzi' http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-37370848

Maybe he even joined in with the killing.

The star witness of the tabloids have been exposed as lying more than 14 times after cross examination.

Why no news about this?

The Philipine is like Mexico, a land of Mafias. And that demonstrated she is a failed nation. Much like Iraq or Libya that killings is above law.
