Forbes correspondent labels Duterte as PH’s greatest threat

Home / Unlabelled / Forbes correspondent labels Duterte as PH’s greatest threat

In his article, political writer for Forbes Anders Corr expressed views on why and how President Rodrigo Duterte became the greatest threat to his own country by emphasizing how he has been using actual issues plaguing the country as an alibi to impose Martial Law.

Corr urged the Philippine Congress to assert its constitutional right and revoke Duterte’s Martial Law before he attempts to extend it past the 60-day limit.

The correspondent asserts that there are not as many members of Maute or Abu Sayyaf as their gall to wave an ISIS flag shows which would not be the invasion or rebellion that the constitutional requirement for Martial Law demands.

Duterte’s imminent dictatorship, as Corr asserts, is also revealed in his reverence of former President Ferdinand Marcos and preference of ties with China and Russia over US. 

Instead of Martial Law, Corr suggests Dr. Priscilla Tacujan’s four-point program in her Small Wars Journal which enumerates 1) disarmament, 2) strong local governments, or federalism,  3) a diversified market economy, and 4) civic education and community relations as ways to address crisis like the one in Mindanao.

With Duterte’s current hardline stance, Corr believes that it will be the Constitution that becomes the victim.

He urges the public and lawmakers to rally against Duterte and revoke Martial Law by asserting the Constitution.

  1. Another GROUP OF IDIOTS trying to DICTATE us what to do on our own country.
    I'm just wondering if this IDIOTS still didn't realize or understand that Filipinos are more intelligent than them? We can understand, read, and write their language and most of all we're not meddling to their own problem simply because we know the MEANING OF RESPECT.

  7. ISIS in Mindanao was downplayed by the aquino adminstration in 2014 they were spotted and undermined them because they believed the numbers of maute group has no capability to subdue any city of mindanao. when duterte came, he never set aside the presence of local ISIS. and he even foretold that the biggest threat is the terrorist.

  10. Our President...really know and understand the Culture and Tradition of the Filipinos, The Filipinos has a DIVERSITY of DIALECTS, CULTURE and TRADITION and DIVERITY of RELIGION......Our new President Mr. Duterte understand that very well because he live in a rural area and local city and studied in a National City that is why he has lots of understanding how the Filipinos live and interact with each other. So for any foreign national or froreign critics before you open your mouth think twice, thrice of what you say or published , make sure you know well the HISTORY of the Philippines which were run and controlled by foreign businesses and oligarchs and drug syndicate and LIBERAL PEOPLE with no INTEGRITY....

  12. Philippines has 140 different dialects, and 7,100 Island.......That is not easy for a leader to unite all the differences in just one common thought...That is why you need a SPECIAL SKILL to do that. Question? Is there any country who has that kind of DIVERSITY...Name all the RELIGION in the World , Philippines has them too....That is a very hard task to UNITE into one GREAT COUNTRY....This is only partial piece of History..
