Just when you start to think Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has reached the height of depravity, he shocks the world yet again by coming up with something even more appalling.
President Rodrigo Duterte violated global humanitarian law when he encouraged state forces to shoot female rebels in the vagina if they encounter them in the field, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said. We will just shoot your vagina. In the speech, the President said, "Soldiers should shoot women rebels in their vaginas because, without their vagina, they are totally useless".
Harry Roque, the president's spokesman, said that people - women in particular - are "overreacting" to the president's statement, countering, "I mean, that's amusing". "I mean, that's amusing. Come on. Just laugh", Roque said.
Duterte said he has told European officials he won't attend an upcoming meeting between Southeast Asian and European leaders.

Is History Repeating Itself In Oil Markets?
Last year, more than 80 percent of the production growth from the United States came from shale oil deposits in the Lower 48. Energy Information Administration is saying U.S. crude oil output could reach 11 million bpd by the end of this year.
Duterte's spokesman responded to the latest incident by saying the president's comments were "funny", but human-rights agencies have harshly criticized the "misogynist, derogatory and demeaning statements". "Maybe I will even congratulate you for having the balls to rape somebody when you know you are going to die", he had said after the Miss Universe 2016 pageant was held on January 30, 2017, at the Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay, Metro Manila, Philippines.
"He has further presented himself as the epitome of misogyny and fascism rolled in one", she added. "But she was so attractive, the mayor should have been first", he had said.
Duterte gave the order after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wanted to open an investigation into human rights concerns regarding how the helicopters would be used by the military.
Critics say Rodrigo Duterte's remarks can encourage sexual violence and war crimes.
