Walang sinabi sa Russia! Duterte predicts US will ‘melt first’ in nuclear war


President Rodrigo Duterte believes the United States is on an overdrive promoting human rights because it doesn’t stand a chance against other world superpowers in case a nuclear war breaks out.

In a speech in Pampanga Wednesday (March 7), Duterte downplayed the US’ capabilities to survive a nuke attack.

You know, if war breaks out, America will melt first but Russia and China will also follow suit. Kung bitawan nila lahat ‘yang nuclear warheads nila, it’s the end of the world,” he said during a meeting with local chief executives from Luzon.

“Sino man ngayon ang sa America? France, inutil. British, inutil. Sige tuloy — sige tuloy human rights, human rights. In this world, they are promoting human rights,” he added.

In contrast to the US, Duterte said Russia will survive if it is attacked by another country using nuclear weapons.

“Pero ang Russia is no pushover. Sabi nga nila they have a — invulnerable missile that cannot be stopped. And Putin would not make that statement — that was really a threat. Hindi ‘yun advertisement,” he said.
