Locsin: How does Robredo know drug war isn’t working? Is she in touch with El Chapo?
For Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr., the government’s war on drugs should continue, contrary to the claim of Vice President Leni Robredo.
“How does she know it isn’t working? Is she in touch with… El Chapo? Who else can tell the war’s going well or badly?” Locsin tweeted.
“I wanted to make a case for declaring victory but she says it’s a clearly a defeat. So clearly we must fight on. Never say surrender; just go on saying die,” he said.
Robredo earlier called on President Duterte to let the United Nations to investigate the anti-drug campaign and abandon the war which she claimed was “obviously not working.”
She may have meant to say there is need to change the strategy, perhaps a J Edgar Hoover style of dealing with the most notorious crime bosses in the US during his time. You’re right. Stopping the drug war won’t win the war against illegal drugs.— PING LACSON (@iampinglacson) October 25, 2019
