Martial Law Declared in South Philippines, Trump Praises Duterte’s Drug War
The declaration takes immediate effect and will last for 60 days—officially. But in his comments upon the declaration, Duterte said it could last up to “a year”—and (not for the first time) favorably invoked the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, under whose harsh rule the Philippines saw a decade of martial law.
“To those who have experienced martial law, it would not be any different from what president Marcos did,” Duterte said. “I’ll be harsh.”
Duterte’s murderous war on low-level drug dealers and users has already jacked up a body count of perhaps 7,000 since he took office last year.
