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

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.

Why doesn't he do extra-judicial killings like the US do?

Shoot the suspects in the back when they are lying on the ground, and then claim they had a gun.  Works in Baton Rouge...

World leaders need to take note: your popular support now depends on your defiance of Neo-con americana.

Yes, even American leaders.

Can we start a war between the Philippines and Venezeuala?  Two half-wits?  We could sell weapons to both sides and pay down our national debt.  The net result would be three self correcting problems.

I mean really, what bad can you say about this half breed masquerading as a President and his mother, that could be off the mark?  Have you seen how monkey like, animal like, this thug Obama father is?  He looks like he just came out of the trees.  How could Obama's white mother be anything but blind or low down (trailer trash) to lie under such an animal and bear its young?  Same goes for the incestous people he, Obama, works for, and, they are not the American people.  There is not enough bad things to say about these scum.  GDit, people, how many innocent people have been horrendously murdered, blown to bits, set afire, torn to pieces, gassed and you name it, by these sob's?  Millions, let me repeat that: MILLIONS, EVEN TENS OF MILLIONS.  For the people, Rothschild's Criminal Banking and Finace, 'our' government scum work for, approaching a billion, innocent people murdered.  Most people get life in prison or the death sentence for one murder, these sob's murder by the tens of millions and nothing happens except we give them more money and more power. Wake up, and thanks, Mr. Duterte.  You folks do know the AP and Reuters are both owned and controlled by the Joo Rothschild Family, all of the news we get other than the Internet (and most of it is Joo controlled) is total Joo BS, intending our destruction, the sooner, for them, the better.  Two criminally conducted parts of 'their' (it is certainly not our) Government that we must recapture for our children are: Banking and Education.  We must and now, get the Joo influence out of our money and out of our children's education if we are to ever or even have a chance of saving the world.  I guess, the first we must do of course is take back our LEGAL SYSTEM which means we must fire every Judge in Amereica today and appoint new ones.  Okay, then, are you ready to go to that big BS story in the sky?  The choice right now, though this is surely and rapidly changing, the choice today is sort of your's, make it count. We really did and for greed unleash these Joo mobsters-monsters, the Rothschilds and their minions, onto all of innocent humanity, not us the people but 'our' so called leadership.  Don't you think it is our responsibility to put these worms back in the can where they belong?  We easily have the military and resources to get the job done today, this could change tomorrow though, so we better get busy.  Start with real leadership and go from there.  Jordan Maxwell, hits the nail on the head when he says everything we know is a lie.  All of us can (using the Internet) change that, and we better do it real soon, start with the biggest lie ever told, the Joos holocaust story, blast it out of the minds of people, for it is all and totally a mean terrible LIE.  THERE WAS NO JOOS HOLOCAUST EVER, BUT THE JOOS CERTAINLY HAVE HOLOCAUSTED US, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, EVERY DAY, IN SO MANY WAYS, UNTIL WE ARE ALL DEAD OR LAME.  We must stop them now or else we will never be able to stop them, ever again.

Do not in pain of your dysfunctional system, prop up childish challengers. Egg him to walk his talk and unplug from the trade and investment linked to US. He is a hypocrite if he cannot do it. Wake up to all these ingrates.

It started in 1945 after the second world war and now the end is in sight.

The real nail in the coffin was George Bush's stealing of an election and the push for world war 3. Military action in the middle east has driven the world against America and Bush's successor didn't stand a chance. Now, the President of what used to be it's closest ally in the East has, in effect, to the POTUS to fuck off.

Now, if he was a man on honour, Obama would pull out all the special ops stationed there, delete the aid, block overseas foreign workers remittances and tell all the mining companies to withdraw until an apology was made. Good luck with that one.

I think he's ACTUALLY told the American President to fuck off, hasn't he?  And the Pope...

There's a lesson here, if the Chinese had simply called Obama a son of a whore last week, they could have avoided all that unpleasantness at the airport.
