“Ph to go rogue internationally” “Ph to fight UN as rogue nation”
The broadsheets missed a more accurate and contextualized headline for President Duterte’s graveyard shift venting during a media briefing Sunday 1:00am: “Maybe we’ll just have to decide to separate from the United Nations. If you are that rude, son of a ♠∉∗ϖ∇, then we’ll just leave you”. -Duterte
Philippines to go rogue, all Filipinos to wear a pompadour hairstyle — that’s how to write a headline : you missed it.
The 1:00am media briefings are always exciting.
Not to worry. An international investigation leading to criminal indictment internationally will probably take four years. What President Duterte should look into is the Rome Statute creating the International Criminal Court which the Philippines ratified in 2011.
Can the UN rapporteur gather enough evidence to show extrajudicial killings in alarming numbers (like, hundreds or thousands…)? So as to be considered a “crime against humanity”…?
Then it will be submitted to the UN General Assemby — pagbobotohan pa iyan (it will have to be voted upon by the UN General Assembly); hwag mo pansinin yan, matagal pa yan, ikaw pa.
Then, the UN General Assembly can decide to refer it to the International Criminal Court — matagal pa iyan; marami ka namang friends, besties (best friends) kayo ng China, Russia, the UN Security Council almost always controls the voting in the UN General Assembly — o, hindi ka mai-indict. Kaya huwag ka umalis ng UN, mawalan ka ng besties sa Security Council.
(news anchors: read the Rome Statute, hwag maging corny):
But i still like the sound of it:
Philippines — The Rogue Nation…
and … cue music…
jet plane, Tom Cruise…
