“Duterte is a coward through and through. He has backed out from his previous public threats to kill his own compadre the Cebu-based drug lord Peter Lim and Governor Espino of Pangasinan and General Garbo whom he accused of protecting the biggest drug syndicates. So far, he himself has insinuated publicly that he has been responsible for the highest level of cold blooded killing, that of only three mayors. One of these mayors has been murdered in jail and the officers responsible have been let off the hook and slated form promotion by Duterte.
But he has enjoyed the most the mass murder of suspected poor drug users and pushers in the urban slums by the thousands (estimated at 8,000 to 12,000) and has openly assured the obvious murderers in authority that they have the license to kill with impunity. The cowardly Duterte regime kills the poor people extrajudicially by the thousands and even boasts about them, despite the growing outrage of the people in the Philippines and abroad. Duterte is overconfident that the poor victims, their families and even institutions cannot stand and fight against his presidential power.
As an addict user of the opioid Fentanyl, Duterte is the No. 1 drug addict in the Philippines and is the most fitting target of the police units that he has turned into death squads and corrupted with money and promotions. But many people, including his so-called diehard supporters, are waking up to the fact that the illegal drug trade continues to thrive even in Bilibid and that Duterte has been favoring certain drug lords by delivering the street market to them where the low-level pushers of other drug syndicates have been slaughtered..
Duterte is not only a coward but an utterly stupid one. He seems not to realize that he himself has incited the people and revolutionary forces to resist his oppressive rule by unleashing against them an all-out war policy involving martial rule and the use of Tokhang methods of abduction and murder as well as indiscriminate bombings and artillery fire that victimize entire communities.”
