Duterte’s Intensified War on Drugs, Too Dirty and Bloody?

Duterte war on drugs

Sunday, August 7, President Duterte made his first public reading about his government “verified” list of politicians, judges, soldiers, and policemen who are allegedly involved in illegal drugs!

We maybe at awe and wonder how verified the list of alleged involves that then Davao mayor Duterte disclosed. A few may be overjoyed at how their president acted this bold way and went out to challenge the drug lords bold and fierce. Others may simply be narked by Duterte’s ‘selective’ war on drug lords. The rest of us may become obnoxiously stupid if I would say that this intensified war on drug lords is going to be too dirty and bloody! Nobody wants to be litigated on public. Nobody wants to be tried by publicity. Nobody wants his or her family to be publicly castigated and accused of a social menace, however, legitimate is that. This country must still be run by laws and not by men!

When President Duterte went public without hesitation to read out his list of those alleged drug lords and protectors, he simply ‘begged’ for these narco-politicians and judges to either start devising a way out to save not only their faces but also their lives, or to start playing with his administration the dirtiest and bloodiest however vicious and far-reaching the collateral damage would go! This must be insane, screwy, and wacky!

How lame this government of laws when it cannot stand united in respect of life! We are in a cluttered division as our President seems in a delusionary state on his egocentric sickness desperate to achieve his “political crusade” against illegal drugs! We are fed with ultra-pseudo-realistic information and premises that made us behaviorally harmful and perspectively pygmied.

How should the President Duterte look at the problem on illegal drugs, instead?

The war on illegal drugs isn’t new and exclusive in our country. Mexico and the United States, the most prominent countries in the war on illegal drugs, had long been fighting for it unsuccessful even before the deterioration of illegal drugs in the Philippines came to a full swing. I should assume President Duterte knew that the business of illegal drugs could be the business of the world! From that dirty business came the dirty money that fed the economy of the world to keep it moving or expanding. Who do we think we are to feel so ambitious to become successful in fighting against the ‘business of gods’? Are we too goddamned to believe we can make it?

▲ Recommendation

Rather than to continue playing against it, why don’t we just start realigning our focus to alleviate poverty, come up with a doable opportunity with it by creating intensive employment-generating strategy while in the process carrying out rehabilitation of citizens across the social strata who are involved in illegal drugs?

Gone is the leadership by fears and ferocity! Passé is the leadership by hatred and violence!
