"Who Is He To Confront Me?" - Philippines President Unloads On "Son Of A Bitch" Barack Obama

Tyler Durden's picture

What was an embarrassing weekend for president Barack Obama, whose arrival at the G-20 summit in China was a case study in diplomatic humiliation, just turned even worse when on Monday, Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte warned the US president not to question him about extrajudicial killings, or "son of a bitch I will swear at you" when the two presidents meet at a summit in Laos in the coming days.

The topic of Duterte's killing spree, supposedly involving mostly criminals and drug-traffickers, without due process has raised eyebrows most recently by the United Nations, which urged the Philippines to stop executing and killing people linked to drug business and threatened that “state actors” could be punished. As a result, two weeks ago Duterte lashed out at the UN and threatened that the country could leave the UN. "Maybe we'll just have to decide to separate from the United Nations. If you're that rude, son of a bitch, we'll just leave you," Duterte told reporters in Davao, quoted by Bloomberg. “I don't give a shit about them,” he added. “They are the ones interfering. You do not just go out and give a shitting statement against a country.”

 

Fast forward to today when the outspoken president lobbed a preemptive warning at Obama, and before flying to Laos where the two heads of state are set to meet, said that he is a leader of a sovereign country and is answerable only to the Filipino people. He was answering a reporter's question about how he intends to explain the extrajudicial killings to Obama. More than 2,000 suspected drug pushers and users have been killed since Duterte launched a war on drugs after taking office on June 30.

In his typical foul-mouthed style, Duterte was quoted by AP as responding: "Who does he think he is?  I am no American puppet. I am the president of a sovereign country and I am not answerable to anyone except the Filipino people, nobody but nobody. You must be respectful. Do not just throw questions. Son of a bitch I will swear at you in that forum," he said.

Duterte went on to blame the US for causing the unrest on the southern Philippines Island of Mindanao. "As a matter of fact, we inherited this problem from the United States," he said. "Why? Because they invaded this country and made us their subjugated people. Everybody has a terrible record of extra-judicial killing. Why make an issue about fighting crime?" He added: "Look at the human rights of America along that line. The way they treat the migrants there."

Duterte has earlier cursed the pope and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Aware of the firestorm his question would provoke from his less than diplomatic peer, it wasn't clear whether Obama plans to raise the issue of extrajudicial killings with Duterte during a meeting on the sidelines of the summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

"Who is he to confront me?" Duterte said, adding that the Philippines had not received an apology for misdeeds committed during the U.S. colonization of the Philippines. He pointed to the killing of Muslim Moros more than a century ago during a U.S. pacification campaign in the southern Philippines, blaming the wounds of the past as "the reason why (the south) continues to boil" with separatist insurgencies. Duterte then once again pointed to human rights problems in the United States.

Last week, Duterte said he was ready to defend his bloody crackdown on illegal drugs, which has sparked concern from the U.S. and other countries. The president also said he would demand that Obama allow him to first explain the context of his crackdown before engaging the U.S. president in a discussion of the deaths.

In response, Obama suggested Monday his planned meeting with Duterte may not go forward. "I always want to make sure if I'm having a meeting that it's productive and we're getting something done," Obama said during his news conference.

"If and when we have a meeting, this is something that is going to be brought up," Obama said, referring to the Philippines' controversial record of combating drug crime since Duterte took office earlier this year.

Obama has been attending a meeting of the Group of 20 nations in Hangzhou, China, where his infamous snub by China made global headlines over the weekend. It appears he may have hed enough snubs for one trip.

Maybe the little bitch Obama didn't apologize hard enough when he was first elected  remember that bs?

I see what you did there. You are saying the exact opposite of what you mean.

Well played.

You are right, Obama has done nothing but bully these small countries around and now they are tired of it.

I'd love to see a treason trial for Obama and all his buddies.

Mom pants, Choom boy Obama is not the government, nor America. He was a aquline faced, plesant mulatto, carried as a pet through elite ( yeah, right ) leftist institute as a virtue signaling chit.

No real male respects him. He has zero red line street cred.

He is pathetically over his head which is more fitting for an president of an obsure, black junior college. Or managing a Wendy's. I could see that.

Noting personal, just the facts.
I actually feel pity for him.

"We'll have to force them to"?

Because that always works so well, doesn't it?

Who is he? That is a damned good question, one Americans may never get the full answer to.

I, for one, think he has a potty mouth and his mother should wash it out with green soap. LOL

LOL. Too late for that.

Seems old lady was a tough cookie having lived until 95: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soledad_Duterte

Duterte claimed publicly to have shot a fellow student while in law school for allegedly bullying him because of his Visayan origins. His victim, however, survived, and although Duterte was prohibited from participating in the commencement march, he did graduate.

So, running his mouth is actually a fairly good outcome in this guy's case. He wasn't given nickname Punisher for nothing.

Oldrepublic's picture

shooting fellow students in law schools seems to be a fine traditions in the Philippines;Marcos did the same thing as a young student.

So what's your beef, Barack O'boy?  Should he have used drones?

DeadFred's picture

Definitely yes. Think of the difference in MIC profits

No kidding. I snorted out loud reading the extrajudicial killings part. Obama should be explaining himself to everyone else.

Obama is a loser.

That's different. They had a 5 minute Sharia court trial. PBUH.

The Philippene people made a correct decision.  What this threatens is the money laundering business worth many billions.  This is also , by the way, why there is no true "war on drugs" because an actual war would show results and cut into a massive money moving world organization.

It may be that Moon and his UN plus Obama have their panties in their cracks because the Philippine Hooking Bull is whacking their drug running infrastructure. Apparently Erdogan was doing the same but now the USDA, US Drug Apparatchiks, has bribed him back into line.

Yep, I am really starting to like this dude.  You have to love somebody who speaks the truth these days.  Too many woosies throughout the politcal world cower before what they perceive to be false authorities.  BTW, folks this is how America ends.  Countries start to lose their fear of the US and the US military comes to the realistic conclusion that they cannot take on the world without destroying the very foundation of its life blood.

Hal n back's picture

There is no fear of us military. One reason is countries have figured out we are all talk. And second our military is a shadow ipof what it was. Thetop officers were relieved of duty, we do not maintain equipment which money was redirected to social programs, new equipment is not working.

We also stopped spending on infrastructure and used that money to offset costs of healthcare to make it look like obamacare is only runing a few hundred bil in deficits.

Ask the GAO which has said the books are unauditable.

Leadership is important. It sets the tone. Look at our leadership. The wrong type of my way or highway..

He no longer fears us, he saw the pic of the troops wearing red high heel shoes.

In order to maintain an Empire, you must have respect, trust, allegiance and pride in it's leadership.  Notice the deterioration and unfavorable ratings of most global leaders.  Something is going awry spawning a new breed of  local, nationalistic, crude and impatient leaders questioning our past mistakes and future direction----is it merely Empire decline, or  rejection of the global model including a collapse of Keynesian economics ?  Possibly. all these factors are to blame--- Empire decline, global experiment, Keynesianism and rejection of current leadership that have fostered this mess bringing about inequality, Corporate greed and the worst in man.

It is working.  Crime is down between 49% to 77%.  Fear of death is a powerful motivater.

I sense a global conspiracy of scorn against Obozo : Russia China then the Philippine islands they all rubbed their ass against his presidential face.

Who's next? Belgium? Croatia?

Duterte in Laos: "Fuck you Obozo! How about all your extrajudicial Drone killings, Asshole??!! I at least I don't kill nearly as many innocents in the collateral damage as you do!"

Yeah for now he'll get away with it. This is what im telling everyone from a month ago: Duterte has insulted every us envoy so far. What the US will do if this keeps up is import some nice "homegrown" terrorism to keep him in line. Already a few days ago, 15 killed and 70 wounded in a blast in Dutertes home province that abu sayaf took credit for and promptly retracted. Maybe its starting already.

Watch and learn how the west works. The next bombing will be in a high density area in the business district of manila. Local extremists wont be responsible. It'll be western sponsered, just to show this guy who's boss.

And  amazingly , the Zika virus has been found throughout ALL of the Phillipines , in less than a week !  lol   U. N.  declares a quarantine .

The Abu Sayyaf  Group was founded in the Philippines in 1991. Want to guess what year the Philippines government voted to close all u.s. military bases in the Philippines?

Bemused Observer's picture

I think he already knows how the West works...that's why he's so pissed. And you should wonder why this nation would suddenly become so outwardly belligerent towards us...we've always seen ourselves as a "protector" of the Phillipines.

I wonder...could they have possibly have had a few unofficial 'talks' with another big power...one a little closer to home? One where the people and culture tend to look very similar to their own?

Become a big enough dick, and soon all your friends will find other friends, and you'll be stuck home alone on Saturday night.

well, if he can kill the drug dealers, he can kill the "terrorists" too! 

Come to think of it, killing drug dealers (and a few of your enemies along with them) raises at least some protest; killing american sponsored "terrorists" will only bet this guy more fans and support !

Okay, no one tell Duterte that Obama used to deal weed. 

No, no, really, don't do it.

Obozo is a sick ass joke world wide, that is just a plain fact.

No one takes the faggot seriously, expect the moron window licking MSM who will be appauled by this fellows truthful comments.

Let's hope some of the bullshit he has foisted upon us can be undone in the future.

Of course, if the Serpant gets the baton, we're fucked.

I'm happy he won't kow tow to Obummer, but the extra judicial killings are not a good thing.

YHC-FTSE's picture

I agree on principle. How do extrajudicial killings and old fashioned dead or alive bounties so liberally issued by the US Government recently and in the past differ? What about the mass murders done remotely by drones all over the world? How about the militarization of the police trained by the Israelis at home? Not my business how the Philipines conduct their affairs, but those who criticise should at least be free of the stench of hypocrisy. Next: Free Obomber immigration visas to all the drug dealers in the World.

This is how I imagined the world would look like if comic book authors wrote the script. Getting more interesting by the minute.
