Getting weapons and different army gear from the United States could also be an excellent factor at first look however as they are saying, the satan is within the particulars.
President Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday (June four) expressed his disgust over his predecessors’ buy of army asses from the US, saying they are of bad high quality.
“I just cannot make it public, my disgust with these Americans. But lahat naman sabihin nila magtulong, pinagbibili naman sa atin. Hindi ‘yan libre,” he informed troopers in a speech at General Benito Ebuen Airbase in Cebu.
“We are paying and we have some helicopters that are not working well. And I have the suspicion that we had a bad deal there,” Duterte added.
The President mentioned he has instructed Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana to chorus from shopping for secondhand army gear from any nation.
“Sabi ko kay Delfin na ‘wag nang magbili ng secondhand. It’s either magbili ako kung saan-saan, mura, pero ayaw ko nang magbili ng secondhand,” he mentioned.
Duterte assured troopers they are going to have the perfect gear beneath his watch– from weapons to fight boots.
“You tell your commanding officers and I will remedy the situation,” he informed them.
