Philippine President Wants US Forces out of Restive South

The Philippine president says he wants U.S.A forces out of his country’s restive south and blamed America for the restiveness of Muslim militants in the region and for the killings of Muslim Filipinos during a U.S.A pacification campaign in the early 1900s.

President Rodrigo Duterte said Monday that Americans would constantly be in danger in the southern Mindanao region, where Islamic extremists would constantly try to kill or kidnap them for ransom.So He did not mention any deadline or give other details.

The U.S.A Embassy did not immediately issue any reaction.

Duterte also criticized President Barack Obama for raising human rights concerns about the Philippine leader’s bloody crackdown against drugs when the U.S.A leader, he says, has not apologized for the American atrocities against local Muslims.​
