Duterte laments to soldiers why military coups don't work: "Drop all politicians"

President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday introduced yet another radical idea to soldiers if they want to oust him through mutiny. Duterte, citing past military-backed revolts against former Filipino leaders, said the military would always resort to giving the power to a deposed leader's opponents instead of grabbing the power itself. The President said it would be more ideal if the military would just choose new set of leaders and "drop all politicians, including me." "The problem with you guys... is [when] you go on a mutiny, rebellion, you do it, you time it [when] there's a disturbance... in society, a political turmoil... If you win, you give the power to the opponents of the leader you had just deposed," Duterte said in a speech in Malacañang.
