Scott J: Time to stop all welfare aka foreign aid to the Philippines & other foreign locales period. We have our own issues here at home to deal with, such as crumbling/outdated infrastructure, growing poverty/dwindling middle class, American jobs being outsourced to overseas slave labor markets, big banks committing fraud (Wells Fargo I'm looking at you) while sticking it to consumers, etc. Let Duterte fund his own war against the druggies over there. ISIS is trying to establish a foothold in the Philippines while Duterte wants to kick the U.S Navy out so let's leave Duterte to his own devices & see how long he lasts against ISIS. I'll wager not too long without all that U.S foreign aid on the backs of U.S taxpayers. Might as well halt all foreign aid to Israel, the Middle East, Pakistan, & Afghanistan while we're at it. These countries need to learn to provide for their own instead of being spoiled with free handouts on the U.S taxpayer dole. It's bad enough U.S taxpayers have to provide welfare to Congress & corporations despite them having more than enough to provide for their own in the first place. Pffft.
