South China Sea: Biggest reason for US to want to kill Duterte
MetadataShow full item record
Last month, President Duterte said outright: America’s Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) planned to assassinate him. He didn’t give any reason why the CIA would want to do so, but not a few analysts think it is because of his getting close to Russia, the US’ arch-enemy even after the Cold War ended in the 1990s. Indeed, the US even recently warned Duterte not to buy submarines that the Russians were offering.
