Philippines President Calls On Civilians To Kill Drug Addicts

“If you know of any addicts, go ahead and kill them yourself as getting their parents to do it would be too painful.”


The Philippines’ president is asking civilians to murder drug addicts in the island nation — adding to a growing list of outrageous actions from the newly elected official.
President Rodrigo Duterte was sworn into office on Thursday after running a campaign that focused on violently cracking down on crime.

He’s pledged to bring back the death penalty and kill 100,000 criminals. Now, he’s asking his fellow Filipinos to kill alleged criminals themselves. 
“These sons of whores are destroying our children,” Duterte said Thursday night to a crowd of 500 in a Manila slum. “I warn you, don’t go into [drug trafficking], even if you’re a policeman, because I will really kill you,” he said.
Duterte said funeral parlors would become increasingly profitable under his rule.
“If you know of any addicts, go ahead and kill them yourself as getting their parents to do it would be too painful,” he told the crowd.
Duterte worked with the Davao Death Squad during his 22-year run as mayor. The group killed more than 1,000 people during his tenure, according to Human Rights Watch.
Drug lords across the country have promised $1 million to anyone who assassinates the president.
Duterte had already made a series of offensive remarks in the lead-up to his election as president. In April, he told a crowd of supporters that he should have had a turn in the gang rape of an Australian missionary killed during a 1989 prison riot in the country.
“I was mad she was raped but she was so beautiful,” he said. “I thought, the mayor should have been first.”
Duterte was embroiled in further controversy earlier this month, when he cat-called a female journalist when she asked him a serious question at a news conference. He had earlier called Pope Francis a “son of a whore.”

Urban Sniper Skills

Photos by Jake Swanson A Former SEAL Schools Us On the Finer Points of Fieldcraft and Marksmanship in the Concrete Jungle According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 80 percent of the American population lives in urban areas. Yet, whenever we see classes or articles about precision marksmanship, they’re usually set against a backdrop of wide-open spaces, with emphasis on the mythical “1,000-yard shot.” Charles Mosier, lead sniper with Las Vegas SWAT and a former Navy SEAL, aims to change that with his urban sniper course. Basic skills of fieldcraft, navigation, stalking, and trigger pulling don’t change, whether the environment is the tundra of northern Norway or the mountains of Afghanistan. But the methods used to ensure a successful shot and the survival of the shooter must be adapted to circumstance. This is why Mosier teaches through doing. Each student gets the chance to practice with his or her equipment in a hands-on setting to see what works, and if it doesn’t, to come up with

Navistar has developed the SOTV-B, a purpose-built tactical vehicle

 (Navistar) If you’ve ever seen videos from an African or Asian warzone, you’ve probably noticed most of them have something in common: midsize pickups. Lots of them. Usually Toyotas, but increasingly Chinese, the typically white, crew cab trucks are a favorite mode of transportation for both combatants and folks just going about their business in developing nations. So, if you’re from out of town and looking to fit in, say on a secret recon mission with your special ops team, they’re a good way to go, but not exactly military spec. That’s why Navistar has developed the SOTV-B, a purpose-built tactical vehicle that was designed to look like your average pickup, but isn’t. Related Image Expand / Contract  (Navistar) Based on the SOTV-A, which wears a more official uniform, the SOTV-B is fitted with the most generic bodywork imaginable. There’s nothing distinguishing about it at all, but if you’re still concerned the locals have gotten wise to your presence, th
