Duterte Orders Troops to Blast Militants — and Their Hostages

MANILA, PHILIPPINES —
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, in a bid to stop a wave of kidnappings at sea, said Saturday that he had ordered his troops to bomb extremists who flee with their captives, calling the loss of civilian lives in such an attack "collateral damage."

Duterte has previously said he told his Indonesian and Malaysian counterparts that their forces can blast away as they pursue militants who abduct sailors in waters where the three countries converge, and that they can bring their kidnap victims to the southern Philippines. He said in a speech late Saturday that he had given the same orders to Filipino forces.

He said he instructed the navy and the coast guard that "if there are kidnappers and they're trying to escape, bomb them all."

"They say 'hostages.' Sorry, collateral damage," he said in a speech to business people in Davao, his southern hometown.

Duterte said such an approach would enable the government to get even with the ransom-seeking militants. "You can't gain mileage for your wrongdoing. I will really have you blasted," he said.

His advice to potential victims? "So, really, don't allow yourselves to be kidnapped."

Duterte's remarks reflect the alarm and desperation of the Philippines, along with Malaysia and Indonesia, in trying to halt a series of ransom kidnappings, primarily by Abu Sayyaf militants and their allies, along a busy waterway for regional trade.

On Saturday, ransom-seeking Abu Sayyaf gunmen freed a South Korean captain and his Filipino crewman who were abducted three months ago from their cargo ship.

The gunmen handed skipper Park Chul-hong and Glenn Alindajao over to Moro National Liberation Front rebels, who turned them over to Philippine officials in southern Jolo town in predominantly Muslim Sulu province.

The Moro rebels, who signed a 1996 peace deal with the government, have helped negotiate the release of several hostages of the smaller but more violent Abu Sayyaf, which is blacklisted by the U.S. as a terrorist organization for kidnappings, beheadings and bombings.

Duterte's adviser dealing with insurgents, Jesus Dureza, said he was not aware of any ransom being paid in exchange for the freedom of the sailors. At least 27 hostages, many of them foreign crewmen, remain in the hands of different Abu Sayyaf factions, he said.

There has been persistent speculation, however, that ransom was paid for most of the freed hostages.

Without a known foreign source of funds, Abu Sayyaf has survived mostly on ransom kidnappings, extortion and other acts of banditry.

A confidential Philippine government threat assessment report seen by The Associated Press last year said the militants pocketed at least 353 million pesos ($7.3 million) from ransom kidnappings in the first six months of 2016.

The militants have mostly targeted slow-moving tugboats in the busy sea bordering the southern Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Brilliant Mr. Duterte, you alienated the United States because you apparently thought you could deal with China alone. It now appears that didn't work out so well, what a surprise.

Will you be kissing the President's shoes apologizing for all the anti-American macho rhetoric?

I'm sure the standard diplomatice response has been sent, it has been duly noted and filed away until any discussion regarding sovereignty begin.

When will they start maybe 2097

"I just want to assure the Filipino people that when we take action at engaging China in this dispute, we do not want to take such aggressive, provocative action that will not solve the problem," he said.

Asian diplomacy as opposed to ameristani bombing back to the stone age. You choose.
