The Philippines and Its Drug War


Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has been in the headlines over the last year for his war on drugs in the Philippines. The populist has been enjoying high satisfaction rating despite the numerous human rights violations related to the drug war.

He previously promised to stop the drug problem in 6 months. Unfortunately, it has been more than a year and the problem is far from over.

How could the Drug War end in the Philippines? Will the president finally admit that he is taking the wrong approach considering the cost and the casualties?
