Many countries have porous borders through which illegal drugs come in, and the Philippines is no exception. Also near to China, with many Chinese living here. But the author's big point is that, as of now, no "Mr Bigs" have been arrested and put on trial, only killed. There are lists, that is all.

Don't think implicating any relatives of Du30 will affect his support here..the base is impervious and most of the rest deferential.

Some good articles on the Manila Times site over the last year or so. They keep a balance..there's another article praising China there. I think they have a deliberate policy to have balancing articles so articles like this one can get through without the whole paper being bought out, like the Inquirer has just been.

I think the article is a pleasing change from other Phil Newspaper reports. Especially the Major Point about the absence of any arrests of significant Big players in importing and distribution of drugs in the last 12 months.A big failure on Du30`s first year in office.

Seems like the war on drugs is measured by the amount of people killed and not the reduction in drug users.

Just one of the anti-drug ops lately with body counts truly at wartime levels. One person shown shot "execution style".

Although the VP Leni Robredo has spoken out just look at the online news sites and see what is trending..mostly not these stories..except one this morning where a Grade 11 student was killed.
