Patay kung patay! Duterte ready to match NPA’s brutality
President Rodrigo Duterte is willing to be as merciless as the New People’s Army should it continue sowing terror, and attacking both government troops and civilians.
Duterte made the threat against the NPA Wednesday (November 22) as he reiterated his vow that he will not declare a revolutionary government.
“I will ensure to you that I can enforce the law by just using the way that we are being run now. Huwag niyo na lang sobrahan kasi what you can do, I will do,” he said during the birthday party of Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Jay Velasco.
“If you start to assassinate people, mga gobyerno, I will give you the same. Magkagulo tayo, so be it,” he added.
Duterte said he is ending peace talks with the communists because he is fed up with the NPA’s attacks.
