Duterte dares US, EU, UN to withdraw aid to Phils

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on Thursday lashed out anew at international bodies amid criticism of the rising death toll in his administration's crime war.

In yet another rant directed at the United States, the European Union, and the United Nations during his speech in Butuan City, Duterte dared these allies to withdraw their aid to the Philippines.

"Go ahead, pull out your aid."

Saying Filipinos are not "mendicants."  He said the country could survive without their help. 

Duterte said that international community would never understand the depth of the drug problem in the Philippines.

"""I do not expect human rights, I do not expect Obama, I do not expect the EU to understand me.  Do not understand me.  And if you think it's high time for you to withdraw assistance, go ahead.  We will not beg for it,"  Duterte said, partly in response to Vice President Leni Robredo's earlier statement saying his rhetoric may affect foreign aid for anti-poverty programs of the government.

"Ano'ng paningin n'yo sa amin?  How do you look at us?  Mendicants?  Na magsige lang sunod-sunod kami?" he added.  "We will survive.  We will survive as a nation."

He also said Filipinos should not worry about foreign groups withdrawing aid, noting that if it happens: "Maski magkahirap dito, we will survive.  And I'll be the first one to go hungry and the first one to die.  Huwag kayong mag-alala.  We'll never never compromise our dignity as a Filipino."

The President earlier in his speech asserted that the government has been fighting itself amid the drug war because thousands of government workers, including Senator Leila de Lima, barangay captains, and police officers had drug links.

"You'll never understand the paid that we are suffering for my countrymen.  Go away, bring your money to somewhere else.  We will survive as a nation.  Pero tingnan natin.  There is always a day for reckoning.  Hindi lahat ng panahon inyo eh," Duterte said. - [Trisha Macas, GMA News]
