ドテルテは精神的ショックから立ち直れるか

シリアの次はフィリッピンか 米国のテロ退治を口実とした介入に書きましたが、マラウィでのテロの背後に何があるか、ドテルテも動揺したようです。5日間公衆の前に姿を現さなかったと伝えられています。フィリピンの治安当局・情報機関は極めて弱体。外国の情報機関に買収されている者も少なくないでしょう。

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has returned after a five-day break from public appearances to reassure soldiers and the media that the fight against Islamic State-affiliated fighters is drawing to a close, while the death toll has surpassed 300.

"The fighting is going on, but it's winding up," Duterte told soldiers of the 4th Infantry Division Command Post in Butuan City on Saturday. According to official government figures 225 militants, 59 soldiers and 26 civilians have been killed in the siege so far.

"It's difficult to fight those who are willing to die. They have corrupted the name of God in the form of religion to kill many innocent people, for nothing."

The president had not made any public appearances since last Sunday, with a spokesperson claiming he was suffering from fatigue, Reuters reports. Duterte did not appear during Philippines Independence Day celebrations on Monday.

When asked about his own health, Duterte downplayed the significance of the hiatus.

"Do not worry," he told reporters after addressing the soldiers. "My state of health is immaterial. There is the vice president who will take over."

When responding to media criticism of both the military’s intelligence gathering before the crisis and its operational effectiveness during the three weeks of fighting, Duterte defended his decision to declare martial law and suggested that, if needs be, he will do so again in the future.
