Russia makes overtures to Philippines about joint naval exercises

Be interesting to see how Donald Trump handles this challenge to US influence, involving the possibility of increased Russian military involvement with a traditional ally of the USA in the South China Sea, particularly since it adds the somewhat volatile (and foul-mouthed) President Duterte to an already unstable mix.

South China Sea: Russia offers to conduct military exercises with Philippines

Does anyone know if President Duterte uses Twitter much?

Well, I was just talking to a friend in Manila the other day, and I'm mainly replying here to remind myself to ask.

Duterte and Trump seem to like each other.

Putin, Duterte, Trump et al. all share the same leadership style (with Trump being the biggest wannabe Fhrer), best illustrated by this scene from "The Untouchables":


Peas in a pod, separated at birth etc.

Pack of crazed cannibals.

They both enjoy having people executed without due process, so I'm not terribly surprised.

And I hit a nerve and was told in no uncertain terms to stop trivializing the extra-judicial killings.

I think I still have that friend, but in the meantime I'll be over here in the corner chanting a reminder to myself.
