National Geographic Takes a Closer Look at the War on Drugs in the Philippines

CBS News interviewed National Geographic correspondent Ryan Duffy whose recently aired film takes a closer look at President Rodrigo Duterte's deadly war on drugs. In this video, Duffy shares what he learned in the controversial war.

I support the war on drugs in the Philippines but the extra-judicial sheds a bad light on the President Duterte's positive cause to bring change in the Philippines. The killings are cruel and go against the Biblical principle that every life is sacred and endowed with inalienable dignity.

This reminded me of a good advice I heard from a friend, to not trade cruelty for another. Because if we think we can remain the good guys while giving up our principles, the odds of winning a cause aren’t in our favor.
