Obama’s Pivot to Asia Hits 
A Roadblock in the Philippines
Dr. Ron Paul* reports on the dramatic development to the geo-political landscape with significant economic implications - Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte, while in Beijing, announced his country’s “separation” from the United States. He told his Chinese audience, “Your honors, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States … both in military, but also economics.’’ .. Dr. Ron Paul: "Will U.S.-Philippine relations continue to spiral downward? Or will Washington begin to see that its aggressive foreign policy, in Asia and elsewhere, is beginning to alienate allies? Or perhaps the next U.S. administration will decide that a CIA 'regime change' is in order for the independent-minded Philippine president. A U.S. pivot away from confrontation with China would go a long way toward repairing strained relations with the Philippines and beyond. Let’s hope that’s Washington’s next move."
