Universal Tyranny: Don't treat me like 'dog on a leash'

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte launched another verbal assault at the United States on Tuesday, saying he is being treated like a dog on a leash.

Speaking at Manila's airport after a trip to Beijing and prior to a visit to Japan, Duterte referred to comments made by U.S. Ambassador Philip Goldberg regarding Duterte's human rights record.

"You know I didn't start this fight," said Duterte. "They started it. They started it, then came out the issue of human rights, the State Department, Obama, EU. They did this to me. Then they said, we will cut our assistance. So I said to them, 'son of a bitch, do not make us your dogs, as if I am a dog with a leash, and you throw some bread, where I can't reach.' The ambassador said something not very nice. You are not supposed to do that because in an election of another country, you should be careful with your mouth," CNN reported.

Duterte was elected president in June, promising to end the Philippines' drug trade. In his first few months in office, thousands of alleged drug dealers and users have been either jailed or killed, some by vigilante groups.
