Philippine President Duterte declared war on drug dealers and for that matter, the entire drug trade that is a nexus out of the Philippines from India and China. Judges, politicians and police in the Philippines are taking part in the drug trade, either personally profiting from it or covering up for networks that are running the drug trade. In most cases, the Philippine judges, politicians and police are probably being paid off to look the other way, with only a few actively involved in the trade itself personally profiting. Diplomatic arrangements were probably already made between the Philippines and Japan prior to President Rodrigo Durterte and Shinzo Abe meeting in Vientiane, Laos, but yesterday it was announced Japan would give the Philippines two large naval frigates to “boost the Philippines maritime security capabilities”.
My guess is the nice gifts from Japan to the Philippines of these two naval frigates, is to assist President Duterte’s war on drugs, which he means unlike the US’s “war on drugs”, and also to encourage the Philippine leadership to stay in the sphere of Japan and not be pulled into China’s sphere of influence. So far, there have been an alleged 2,500 people killed in the Philippines related to President Duterte’s declaring war on the drug trade. And is was further alleged, that President Duterte called President Obama a “son-of-a-bitch”, and that apparently, Duterte and Obama had met in which Duterte gave Obama an apology. And of anyone reads that article flying around the internet saying that Queen Elizabeth has an immediate meeting with President Duterte, that article is a satirical take on these circumstances.
