MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday said he has an “evil plan” for the enemies of the state.

“That is really the fault of all bad people, that they think that they monopolize evil in this country. So may I just would like also to share with you na marami tayo (that we are many). I also have an evil plan for my enemies,” Duterte said in a speech during the birthday of his former political adviser, Frances Tolentino, in Tagaytay City.


The President cited the deployment of state troops to Sulu to deal with the terrorist Abu Sayyaf group (ASG).

“I ordered the deployment of one division there. I hope it would temper their cruelty and ruthlessness kasi mukhang ayaw ko rin na ganunin mo lang rin ako (because I don’t want you to do that to me). I mean you should not,” he said.


He said the ASG just “know how to kill,” but there’s no redemption for the terrorist group.

“They just know how to kill and die and you have to match their talent for that,” Duterte said.

But the chief executive admitted that his values and religion were preventing him from carrying his evil plan against the enemies of the state.

He also cited the Islamic State as the new “enemy of humanity.”

“I’ve been observing how the ruthlessness of the new enemy of humanity, itong mga ISIS. And they just go about decapitating soldiers, children, seven years old to eight years old,” he said. /ee
