Duterte hits ‘justice’: Gawain ko siyang general, bigyan ko ng speedboat

News

President Rodrigo Duterte hit a ‘justice’ who wants an aggressive approach in terms of pushing for Philippines’ position over West Philippine Sea during his arrival press conference from Singapore on April 29.

“Bakit si Duterte?” isang justice diyan, eh ‘di kung gusto mo, sige magsunod kami. Gawain ko siyang general. Sige. Bukas. Bigyan ko siya ng speedboat,” Duterte said. “Pagdating diyan sa gitna, balik tayong lahat. Hayaan mo ‘yan siya.”

“You’re asking me to commit suicide. That is not possible. At bakit – It’s geopolitics actually. That’s why I went out of my way to make friends with China,” he added.

“Kasi kung maging battleground ang Philippines, sino ang mag – sino ang pinakamalapit na mahiraman ko ng
ruise missile? Or ask China to intervene because we are losing Mindanao,” he said. “Can I rely on America? Patawag ko ‘yan sila, magpunta sila dito? Pagpunta pa lang, paglabas nila sa – what’s that North of Virginia? ‘Yung parkinganan daw ng mga barko nila? By that time ubos na tayo dito bakbakan.”

“So ‘yan lang ‘yan, kaibigan ta. Wala man rin ako magawa. So kaibiganin ko na lang,” he added.
