Pres. Duterte to Hire Gurkhas if Needed for the Fight Against Abu Sayyaf


Former North Cotabato Governor and the current Secretary of the Department of Agriculture revealed on his Facebook post that President Rody Duterte is willing to hire one of the world's fiercest warriors the Nepalese Gurkhas to help the Filipinos in fighting against the Abu Sayyaf group.


In a meeting with national security officials and several cabinet members, Pres. Duterte told them that "If I have to hire the Gurkhas to help us fight the Abu Sayyaf, I am willing to do it," Pres. Duterte said.

The world-renowned Gurkhas have been an integral part of the British Army for almost 200 years, they were considered as one of the world's fiercest fighters who originated from Nepal.

Gurkhas became famous with their motto "Better to die than be a coward," and one of their trademark is the use of their traditional weapon known as the kukri. Based on rumors, their kukri must taste blood during the battle or else they need to cut themselves.

Part of Gurkhas training is running uphill for 40 minutes, carrying a basket in their back filled with rocks weighing at least 31 kilos. 

Hiring Gurkhas under the administration of Pres. Duterte is indeed possible because of the international exposures of the Gurkhas helping different Asian countries during difficult times.

Right after the Davao City bombing, Pres. Duterte is now more determined to destroy the terrorist group Abu Sayyaf saying that there's no other option for the bandit groups.

He was quoted as saying "These people are like germs which must be eliminated," he stated referring to Abu Sayyaf.

The meeting between the President and the members of the security council and some Cabinet Members in Davao City started at around 11:00 PM and ended at 4:00 AM.
