Well, that’s one way to be sure your enemy is entirely eliminated.
As reported by The Sun, Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte, never one to shy away from a microphone, said during an appearance at a sports tournament in Laos last Sunday that he will literally “eat” members of Abu Sayyaf (ASG), the Jihadist terror group based in the southwest Philippines, should any manage to be captured by government forces.
Abu Sayyaf has been engaged in a nearly-30-year campaign to establish an independent Islamic province in the country. Duterte’s recent comments come on the heels of an engagement last Saturday in Bohol, a resort island, between the group and government troops, one that saw four members of ASG killed in the firefight.
“Just drive me to extreme anger, and I can eat a person. Give me salt and vinegar and I’ll eat his liver,” Duterte told the assembled.
“You know, I am capable of eating a person. If you anger me, in truth, I will eat you alive. Raw,” he added.
Duterte is well-known for his outlandish comments, often peppered with profanity. In 2016, prior to a scheduled meeting with Barack Obama, Duterte referred to the U.S. president as a “son of a whore” when he learned Obama planned to raise the issue of the brutal manner in which Duterte had been prosecuting the war on drugs in his country.
