    Philipines’ Duterte wants US troops out in two years

    TOKYO: Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said Wednesday he wants US troops out of his country in the next two years and is willing to scrap defence pacts with longtime ally Washington if necessary.

    The comments follow a series of anti-American tirades by the firebrand leader, who has repeatedly attacked the US while cosying up to Beijing, upending his nation’s foreign policy in comments that have sometimes been quickly retracted.

    ”I want, maybe in the next two years, my country free of the presence of foreign military troops,” Duterte told an economic forum in Tokyo, in a clear reference to US forces.

    ”I want them out and if I have to revise or abrogate agreements, executive agreements, I will,” he added.

    Some of well-educated Yanks remember Phillipines-American war 1899-1902(1913).
    Another question is that most of Yanks are bad educated.
