Prevention better than cure in the war on drugs and terrorists

During the Paris terror attack in November 2015, the French Prime Minister Francois Hollande did something more extreme than Duterte’s declaration of a state of lawlessness–Hollande declared a state of emergency, shut all borders, and set a curfew.

Did we hear the French wailing that they were about to be put under a dictatorship?

No, because there are no yellow idiots there, they’re all here in the Philippines.

I suppose the yellows want Duterte to wait until terrorists put a bomb inside the Ateneo campus in Loyola Heights and kill 1,000 members of the “disente” crowd before they will let him lift a finger.

These imbeciles don’t understand a very basic concept: Prevention is better than cure. You don’t wait until a problem has grown to humongous proportions before you do something about it.

There is no such thing as overkill when you’re hunting down criminals and terrorists. Criminals and terrorists are like cockroaches who will grow and multiply if you don’t crush them while they’re still larvae.

It is the same with the war on drugs. Leila de Lima, Trillanes, Risa Hontiveros, and their jaundiced associates claim that the drug problem isn’t really that serious in the Philippines, and Duterte is going overboard with his war on drugs.

I suppose they want him to wait until we turn into a 100% narco-state with more than 10 million addicts (vs. current 3 million) before he takes action.

Come to think of it, maybe that is exactly what they want. It would make the drug lords very, very happy.
