makes me mad" However human-rights groups insist that "death squads" controlled by Duterte are responsible for an estimated 700 extrajudicial executions Upon hearing this Duterte was aghast: "700" he queried on live TV "They miscalculated 1700" This mordant wit is central to the allure of Duterte who appears incapable of giving a speech or interview without injecting one caustic soundbite threat or taunt to fill headlines the next day Speaking to an influential Manila business forum Duterte joked about his philandering and love of Viagra Challenged about the legality of his "death squads" he goaded opponents that he would just sign his own presidential pardon for mass murder Asked what he thought of US Republican presidential nomination front-runner Donald Trump Duterte gave typically short shrift: "Hes a bigot" Duterte has had to shrug off similar allegations in recent weeks During a campaign speech on April 16 he joked that he "should have been first" in the 1989 gang rape of Australian missionary Jacqueline Hamill during a prison riot in Davao City She was subsequently murdered The remarks drew widespread condemnation which in turn drew scornful ripostes from Duterte who told a womens-rights group to "go to hell" and the Australian ambassador to "stay out" Even his eldest daughter who in defending her fathers remarks said that she had also been a victim of rape was dismissed as a "drama queen" by the presidential aspirant Read More: Philippine Presidential Candidate Defends Remarks on Rape: This Is How Men Talk Yet polls dont lie A Pulse Asia survey released Tuesday showed Duterte at 35% of the vote in the five-way race to the Malacañang Palace well ahead of his closet rival Senator Grace Poe who has 23% The last six years under President Benigno Aquino III may have seen growth hover at 65% national debt fall drastically and glut of foreign investment but for many Filipinos this boom lacks inclusiveness and they hanker for a leader who can reestablish the nations international prestige "The big risk for the Philippines is that it does have a poor track record for electing decent leaders" says Gareth Leather senior Asian analyst for Capital Economics Dutertes campaign is shakiest on fiscal matters His bawdy remarks at the Makati business forum did not woo the suited brigade looking for a sober stratagem for long-term growth Asked by TIME how he would help provide jobs for the million or so young Filipinos entering the workforce each year Dutertes unsophisticated answer was "money" and "investment" Yet Duterte has twisted this unfamiliarity with big business to his advantage playing up the image of the plain-spoken common man who isnt beholden to the entrenched dynasties that historically and still hold significant sway over the Philippines However Duterte is a scion in his own right his father was Vicente G Duterte who served as governor of the united Davao A black-and-white photo of his father occupies pride of place in his living room and he is proud of being born in the Visayas island chain as opposed to the typical power brokers further north Washington will hope that Duterte would at least follow Aquino’s bullish approach regarding Chinese territorial expansions in the South China Sea where both Manila and Beijing claim the resource-rich Spratly Islands Satellite imagery in early 2014 showed Chinese construction of a landing strip on reclaimed reefs building work that has now grown into full-scale military bases with air-traffic-control towers dredged seaport and defensive bunkers Some experts contend these “unsinkable aircraft carriers” even have surface-to-air missile capability Read More: The Philippine Election Front-Runner Says He Would Kill His Own Children if They Took Drugs But Duterte has actually made conciliatory overtures toward China proposing a joint exploration of oil and gas under the reefs and instead pointing the finger at the US for not challenging the Asian superpower earlier "Why the hell did the US not send its Seventh Fleet to confront China from the outset when they knew they were building a structure in international waters" Duterte asked emphasizing the benefits of dialogue over brinkmanship "If you militarize the waterway then freight insurance goes up making goods leaving the Philippines more expensive" It is a conciliatory approach that chafes with his domestic reputation After Duterte banned smoking in public places in Davao City he once even made a tourist eat a cigarette that he refused to put out A former smoker himself his aversion to the habit comes from his personal battle Asked by TIME about his health he holds up a wizened finger "Buergers disease and I have a bad case of Barretts [esophagus]” he says referring respectively to a disease that blocks the blood vessels in the hands and feet and a condition where the esophagus changes to tissue that resembles the lining of the intestine Despite his health problems Duterte has just celebrated his 71st birthday though some worry whether the travel late nights and stress of a full six-year presidential term might prove deleterious Especially as Duterte insists he intends to remain as President in his current humble three-bedroom home in suburban Davao commuting to the capital each morning on a private jet "I can have breakfast on the plane" he says That said Duterte has repeatedly vowed to resign if he fails to "eradicate" crimes drugs and corruption within six months and hand the reins to vice-presidential front-runner Bongbong Marcos son of former Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos But should people be worried about having another Marcos in power "Bongbong would do a good job" Duterte Jollibee hot dog in hand bellows above the roar of helicopter rotor blades before quipping "They should be worried about me" Write to Charlie Campbell at [email protected] rift between Saudi Arabia and Iran has quickly ballooned into the worst conflict in decades between the two countries The back-and-forth escalation quickly turned the simmering tension into an overt struggle for power in the Middle East First the execution of a prominent Shiite cleric prompted protestors to set fire to the Saudi embassy in Tehran Saudi Arabia cut off diplomatic relations and kicked out Iranian diplomatic personnel Tehran banned Saudi goods from entering Iran Worst of all Iran blames Saudi Arabia for an airstrike that landed near its embassy in Yemen Saudi Arabias Sunni allies in the Arabian Peninsula largely followed suit by downgrading diplomatic ties with Iran However recognizing the dire implications of a major conflict in the region most of Saudi Arabias Gulf State allies did not go as far as to entirely sever diplomatic relations as Saudi Arabia did Bahrain the one nation most closely allied with Riyadh was the only one to take such a step Oilpricecom: $20 Oil Is Now A Distinct Possibility As Chinese Demand Wanes Many of them are concerned about a descent to further instability Nations like Kuwait and Qatar have trade links with Iran plus Shiite populations of their own Crucially Qatar also shares a maritime border with Iran as well as access to massive natural gas reserves in the Persian Gulf These countries are trying to split the difference between the two belligerent nations in the Middle East “The Saudis are on the phone lobbying countries very hard to break off ties with Iran but most Gulf states are trying to find some common ground” a diplomat from an Arab country told Reuters “The problem is common ground between everyone in this region is shrinking” The effect from the brewing conflict on oil is murky but for now it is not having a bullish impact In the past geopolitical tension in the Middle East especially involving large oil producers would add a few dollars to the price of oil This risk premium captured the possibility of a supply disruption into the price of a barrel of crude However recent events barely registered in oil trading That is because the global glut in oil supplies loom larger than any potential for a supply disruption Oil dropped to nearly $30 per barrel on January 12 and oil speculators are not paying any attention to the tension in the Middle East Also the conflict could simply manifest itself in an intensified battle for oil market share Iran has put forth aggressive goals to ramp up oil production in the near-term And Saudi Arabia continues to produce well in excess of 10 million barrels per day while discounting its crude in several key markets particularly in Europe in order to box out Iran Oilpricecom: Crashing Oil Prices And Dropping Rig Count Take Their Toll On US Output But what if the current "Cold War" between Saudi Arabia and Iran turned hot Saudi Arabia has a variety of reasons to not back down not the least of which is the very real sense of being besieged on multiple fronts An article in The New Statesman by former British Ambassador to Saudi Arabia John Jenkins clearly laid out the threats that Saudi Arabia sees around every corner: extremists at home; a growing Iran; toppled allies from the Arab Spring; low oil prices; and a fractured relationship with the United States The nuclear deal between Iran and the West was confirmation on the feeling in Riyadh that it is becoming increasingly insecure Already the two rivals have engaged in proxy battles in Yemen and Syria supporting opposite sides in those wars A full on direct military confrontation would be something entirely different however It would have catastrophic consequences for oil markets even when taking into account the current supply overhang Dr Hossein Askari a professor at The George Washington University told Oil & Gas 360 that a war between the two countries could lead to supply disruptions with predictable impacts on prices Oilpricecom: Rig Count: Capitulation "If there is a war confronting Iran and Saudi Arabia oil could overnight go to above $250 but decline [back] down to the $100 level" said Askari "If they attack each others loading facilities then we could see oil spike to over $500 and stay around there for some time depending on the extent of the damage" While not impossible war is speculative at this point Also $250 and $500 per barrel are numbers pulled out of thin air and may seem a bit sensationalist But despite the glut in global oil production somewhere around 1 mb/d the margin from excess to shortage is thinner than most people think OPEC is producing flat out and spare capacity is actually remarkably low right now The EIA estimated that OPEC spare capacity stood at just 125 mb/d in the third quarter of 2015 the lowest level since 2008 As a result even though it remains a remote possibility direct military confrontation between Saudi Arabia and Iran could well put oil back into triple-digit territory in short order This article originally appeared on Oilpricecom Contact us at
