Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, known for his colorful rhetoric, has threatened to “burn down” the United Nations Headquarters in New York over mounting international criticism of his crackdown on suspected drug dealers, PressTV reported.

“You go and file a complaint in the United Nations, I will burn down the United Nations if you want,” Rodrigo Duterte said when asked about the country’s reported human rights violations, as quoted by media on Saturday.

Addressing military personnel at an army base during a December 18 trip to the country’s southern city of Zamboanga, the tough-talking president said, “I will burn it (the UN) down if I go to America,” the report continued.

  1. Dear Mr.Duterte, you should really consider smoking a big joint or some opium pipe. If still not enough to chill-out, try to shoot an heroin dose.
    Should also being considered stopping angel dust and PCP : you’re neither a hell’s angel or James Brown but moreover, dear Mr.Duterte, please stop cocaine : it brings people megalomaniac and paranoid. Nevertheless, you should definitively avoid ANY ‘speeds’, even coffee or tea!

    • +1 from me.
      Well, it’s clear that this loonie is on a slipping slope, although I think it may happen more likely next year : 2016 is ending in 3 days…
      Nevertheless, his death squads have already killed more Filipinos than hard drugs do, thus, they’re the perfect scapegoats to victimise in order to cover up the failures of the government.
      There are at least 5 thumbdowners that should give a try to the same substances I advise Duterte to take and the same I advise him to avoid.
      Some here should really meditate this :

      At my level, if I can totally agree on the fact he called Obama a motherfucker and a will to get rid of US militaries in his country (but if it’s to replace them with those of another power, errrrr, well, be sure to think twice about who you invite : I have enough feedback from my African friends on the behaviour of several foreign powers, especially on the economic domain : the US may be seen as being very bad, they’re far to be the worst! There are 2 BRICS countries you really don’t want to allow their corps to invest in yours : they really act like velociraptors).
