Seagal: Duterte’s fights are winnable

Hollywood actor Steven Seagal reiterated his support for President Duterte as he expressed that Duterte’s fights are winnable, even if the victories may take a long time before they arrive.

 

Duterte brought along Seagal when he visited the soldiers in Camp General Teodulfo Bautista in Jolo, Sulu Friday.

 

When asked by Duterte to speak to the troops, Seagal commended the soldiers for being able to overcome the five-month war against the Daesh-inspired terrorists in Marawi City.

 

“I think the main thing we all have to keep in our hearts is we don’t win this battle today. We don’t win this battle tomorrow. It’s gonna be a long fight, but the idea is to annihilate the enemy through attrition,” Seagal told the soldiers.

 

“It’s gonna be a long battle, but slowly, day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year, the enemy will get smaller and finally they will be gone to the point where it is absolutely and positively controllable,” he added.

 

He also commended the troops for their commitment to the country, the President, and for their commitment “to do the things you have to do to make the Philippines safe.”

 

According to the President’s “good friend”, Duterte’s fights are winnable and he hopes that he could somehow be a part of it.

 

“We have a problem. We have kidnapping, narco-trafficking, human trafficking, organ trafficking and terrorism. I know you guys put your life on the line everyday. I, myself, have done and will do the same thing so I understand this is serious business,” Seagal said.

 

“I believe there is a formula that can help the armed forces, the police, the intelligence network to combat this very, very well. I am looking forward to discussing these things with President Duterte at a later time,” he added.

 

“I hope I can be involved with all of you in this war against all of these evil things,” he continued.

 

Seagal has expressed his admiration for the President, saying Duterte is a good president and is instrumental in making the Philippines a safer place to live in.

 

Last October, Duterte met with Seagal in Malacañang as the actor scouted for a location in the country for his upcoming movie.

 

Learning that Seagal’s movie is about illegal drugs and other crimes, Duterte reportedly told the 65-year-old celebrity that movies are a reflection of life.

 

He also reiterated to Seagal his strong stance against illegal drugs as it enslaves people to a form of synthetic chemical.

 

Seagal, who is in the country for third time, said he is interested in casting Filipino talents for the show. The filming will reportedly take place in various parts of the country, including in Vigan City.
