WAR ON THE HORIZON: Philippines Set To Declare War On Country You'd Never Believe In Just 1 Week!
It looks like war may be on the horizon for one country which never seems to have any real problems, Canada.
The Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte threated on Tuesday to declare war on Canada if they did not remove tons of garbage that was sent to The Philippines, years ago.
According to Fox News,
"I will declare war against them. I will advise Canada that your garbage is on the way. Prepare a grand reception. Eat it if you want to," he said. "Your garbage is coming home."
The total amounts up to over 100 shipping containers which contain waste shipped from Canada back in 2013 and 2014.
Canada has been trying to convince the Philippines to dispose of the trash for them.
Here's a question. Why didn't Canada just do something with their own trash?
The NY Daily News reports,
Duterte insisted he was ready to load those cartons onto a ship, send them east and alert Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau the trash was en route.
“Prepare a grand reception!” he said. “Eat it if you want to.”
Trudeau — who has been critical of Duterte’s shoddy record on human rights — addressed the matter of collecting the trash containers during a 2017 visit to the Philippines
I believe part of the issue arises from that the materials that are held within the shipping containers are not what Canada said that they were. Customs inspectors found that instead of recycling, which is what these containers were supposed to have, there was a lot of garbage, soiled diapers, and kitchen trash even.
