From a Vietnamese reader on Duterte
I do not understand why Filipinos have elected an incompetent and cowardly president.
Chinese ships sank the fishing boat of Filipino workers; the whole world knew and condemned China’s violent, sinister actions — but only the President of the Philippines did not dare to admit it.
Then he challenged the United States to bring all its weapons against China, and he would let the Philippine Army follow.
I do not understand how a President of a sovereign state could rely on another country. When certain interests do not concern Americans, they will not bring weapons to help an incompetent President.
Filipinos should dismiss this President. I recognize him as unworthy and untalented to head and lead a country of over 100 million people.
