Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has threatened to throw corrupt officials from helicopters mid-air, saying he has done it before.
"If you are corrupt, I will fetch you using a helicopter to Manila and I will throw you out," said Mr Duterte, who is waging war on corruption and drugs.
It's the latest claim by the president that he has personally carried out extra-judicial killings.

bbc news

Not a fan of extrajudicial killings but in the case of government corruption i make a exception.

Problem with corruption is that you cant go through normal judicial channels as they are.....well corrupt.


In my country corrupt officials are normaly given kinighthoods and peerages......

Ha ha, too funny with the Scar Face reference. What do drug cartel leaders deserve? To be executed. But make the pres look bad in the press because he snubbed the US openly, in the press...

My hero, Douglas MacArthur, loved the Philippines and so do I...

It's a simple algorithm for Presdident-Elect Trump:
Threaten the purse strings to The Phillipines and let their Congress act accordingly...

Pimintel III, the Senate President, is quite reasonable and has the support, albeit quietly...
He is a man of principle and could oversee an impeachment which, with his vocal support, would pass...

The Philippine people are growing weary of their leader acting more like Charlie Sheen than a dignified president...

So they want to be occupied by a foreign power then? His mediate is getting twisted in the western press.

I hear the guy standing up... Drug dealers die, US go home. More power to him.

Like you just covered for the drug problem there? That is huge. And like another time and era, Pablo Escobar ran things , requiring a dedicated bloody campaign to remove him from his rib cage in the end.

You are undoubtedly ignorant of this but the Philippines is a former Imperial outpost of United States…
Taft, for instance, served as it's governor if memory serves..

We heavily subsidize the Philippines to this day because they are a former child of our imperialism and Spain before us...

Our trade and subsidies find the Philippines operating in large part at the United States' discretion...

It is America's moral duty to help a former child of our imperialism…
Especially considering the nature of our relationship and the historical significance of their contribution to our endeavors in the Pacific, specifically relating to the war against the mighty Japanese imperial armies of the early 20th century...

America has a moral duty to protect the downtrodden and while your isolationist ignorance cannot fathom this fact that is of no consequence to the reality of the America's obligation to the first world…

While Obama and his Woodrow Wilsonian pacifism/isolationism has set the world ablaze we will no longer allow despots to operate unilaterally without consequence…

And I see no reason why we ought not start our reasserttment of the exportation of American Exceptionalism at the shores of a former valued ally, The Philippines..

Unfortunately you are under-equipped to debate me on matters of the Pacific as I have read your posts and to say they are misinformed would be offensive to the word "misinformed"…

The only thing Trump needs to do in the Philipines is support the anti-corruption campaign, and render any help to Duterte he needs.

No more regime changes.

If he is unwilling, i'm sure Duterte can find great powers who aren't concerned with the "rights" of drug kingpins, corrupt officials and paedophiles.

Mate that post is everything thats wrong with America and Americans.

The total arrogance you display by implying America needs to be some sort of world police or realign countries moral compasses is truly amazing.

What America needs to do is stay the F#$@ out of everyone elses business and sort its own # out, every time America meddles in other countries affairs it ends badly. In fact I cant think of 1 time since WW2 that American intervention has been a good thing, can you?

Again the philipines is a sovereign countrys and the USA has no more right to interfere than the UK has in the USA buisness.

Again by that principle the UK should interfere in the buisness of the USA?

All i read was "derp derp i am a neocon derp derp"

It was bushes disasterous neocon foreign policy that started the blaze. Obama just poured fuel on it.

And i hardly call Obama foreign policy pacifist and isolationist! Ffs what was Libya, arab spring syria and his drone policys if not interference!!!!!!! The bastard practical created ISIS! He makes bush nearly look like a isolationist!

Is there a Government in existence that isn't corrupt? If there is I'd like to know which! I would say that every Government is corrupt just some are better at hiding it than others. Why? Because we humans are driven by greed and at a genetic level by sex...so easily corruptible
