The bombastic Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte moved to escalate tensions in the South China Sea knowing that the United States is under a treaty obligation to defend the Philippines.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, known as the Donald Trump of the Pacific, unleashed a fiery batch of rhetoric this week that threatens to light a match under the South China Sea powder keg threatening a “bloody confrontation” against any country that infringes on Manila’s sovereignty and suggesting that he would “happily beat up” any party that attempts to take control of the disputed Scarborough Shoals.

The relatively unhinged musings of the Filipino leader follow controversial statements made earlier this week about the country exiting the United Nations if they continue to complain about his aggressive “war on drugs” that has left over 1,900 dead over the past 8 weeks along with statements referring to US Secretary of State John Kerry as “crazy” while laughing that he should have insulted the American diplomat more so that they would give even more money.

“I guarantee to (China), if you enter here, it will be bloody, and we will not give it to them easily. It will be the bones of our soldiers, you can include mine,” said Duterte to the Associated Press. “We’ll not allow any country to bamboozle (us). We’ll not allow it.”
