“We should know by now that such theatrical bombast is part of the President’s oratorical repertoire,” Recto said in a statement.
“His bluster should be likened to a dog that always barks but seldom bites.”
Recto said Duterte’s remarks about martial law should be filed under his “outlandish threats,” citing the President’s previous pronouncements that he would ride a jet ski to Spratly islands, and that he would feed the fish of Manila Bay with bodies of salvage victims.
There is no basis to declare martial law because there is no rebellion and no foreign army threatening to invade the country, Recto said.
The President has also been bragging that crime is down and people are safe in their homes and communities, he said.
