The fight against the use of illegal drugs has shifted to higher gear as media reports revealed dozens of drug lords, pushers and users are killed everyday. Metro Manila and its vicinities tops in the score board with highest numbers of deaths in encounters and firefights. It seems Pres. Duterte’s program of work to annihilate criminality in the country is working well in its initial stage. So many people indulged in drugs have reportedly surrendered to the police – – presumably of fears they will be killed by the police. A total of 45 drug traffickers have been liquidated in the first four days of Duterte’s leadership.

I wish to reiterate my suggestion for the department of health to come out with reports relative to the bad effects of drug addictions. Why is shabu, marijuana and other drugs prohibited by the government? Why are these items destructive to our health and what should we do to stop the proliferation of addiction? Many Filipinos are ignorant of the ugly effects of the drugs because of lack of information. I am calling the health department to wake up to reality before we are ultimately defeated by this menace of society.

I heard the town of Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental is winning its fight against criminality. There is news report everyday of deaths involving criminals. The sad thing is the towns of Jasa-an, Balingasag, Lagonglong, Salay, etc. where criminals are roaming freely undisturbed have not been touched by the authorities yet. Pres. Duterte said if these criminls resist arrest, they should be killed and he will protect the police.

Drug tests for all government workers is a good program of the new administration. Those found positive should be advised right away that their services are not needed anymore and as such they are fired. This should have been done long time ago but many of our law enforcers are sleeping on their job.

Our country has a lot of good laws but regrettably some of them were not implemented appropriately. Because of this failure, violators enjoy for sometimes now their instinct to commit crimes at the expense of the general public. I sincerely sympathize to the victims of criminality who have gone to their graves for our failure to protect them.

NASA has announced today that the spacecraft, Juno, loops into Jupiter’s orbit after five years of journey. The purpose is to study the impact of life in the planet in relation to planet Earth. Our knowledge towards neighbor planets is growing. It is indeed full of suspense and thrills as mankind moves onwards into the depths of space adventures.

China is having a military drill in the disputed seas near the Philippines. This means one thing – – it is readying a fight with anyone. America has warned China to stop constructing artificial islands around the Scarboroughs, the matter protested by China by saying they are not afraid of trouble. It seems tension is escalating between the two giant countries. I am praying it will not reach to a military confrontation.

Japan and China cannot see eye-to-eye with each other because of disputes in territories too. The latter is very ambitious in its expansion program and wants to include in its sovereignty countries like the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Taiwan and a lot others. This is stupid bullying which cannot be done without a bullet fired.

Once again I urge Pres. Duterte to dispose corrupt politicians in our midst. If we kill the drug lords and everyone connected to illegal business of prohibited drugs, I don’t see any reason why we leave behind government officials who harmed the country even more. We must confiscate the illegally-earned millions of pesos from these people and declare them to die by hanging. That is if we really are determined to clean the country of foolish acts around. Suspected politicians should be barred from leaving the country. If necessary shoot them too.

During the era of Pres. Ferdie Marcos, we invented the word “Imeldific” meaning beauty, referring to the former First Lady Imelda Marcos who the dictator described as the most beautiful lady in the world. Now I am suggesting to use the word “Dutertenize” in a verb form to mean kill all the criminals or Dutertenization” in the form of a noun. Of course, these are not in the dictionary. It sounds good but I am only joking. BEN EMATA Bennex News Service
