Duterte on PH’s insurgency problem: Let’s end this stupid war
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte again called for the end of the decades-long communist insurgency in the Philippines.
The communist insurgency in the country has been going on for 53 years, Duterte said during a speech delivered in Palo, Leyte Thursday.
“Hindi man natin makuha ang lahat natin na gusto sa mundong ito. Pero hindi kailangan na magpatayan tayo,” according to him.
To win back rebels to the fold of law, Duterte said the government has distributed agricultural lands to former rebels and provided them livelihood and housing assistance.
“We have to end this stupid war,” he added.
