Bully, hypocrites: Duterte badmouths US in meeting with Putin
During the first bilateral meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Rodrigo Duterte in his opening statement, he did not wasted his time in dissing the US and Western allies.
“I see a lot of these Western nations bullying small nations. And not only that they are into so much hypocrisy.And they want to… They seem to start a war but are afraid to go to war. That is what’s wrong with America and the other,” said Duterte.
“They were waging war in so many places in Vietnam, in Afghanistan and in Iraq. And for one single reason that there was a weapon of mass destruction and there was none. They insist if you are allied with them that they follow you. They go to the Korean war, nothing happened. They got defeated. They also got soldiers, Filipino soldiers in both Iraq and Vietnam and nothing happened, they lost. Then they went to an expedition in Iraq on an excuse of weapons of mass destruction and there was none,” said Duterte.
“They forced my country to contribute military forces. And when one soldier, one Filipino worker in the Middle East was captured by the groups there, they threatened to behead the Filipino unless we go out of war — in the war against the Middle East at that time.The condition was that if we withdraw our forces, then they would spare the life of the Filipino worker. And we decided to withdraw,” said Duterte.
“From that time on, the Americans made it hard for us and even in the (inaudible) times with IMF. So there are the things that I see which is not a good idea,”” he added.
