Duterte doesn
Foul-mouthed outburst cost the new leader of the Pacific a key ally of Washington the chance to meet with President Barack Obama in Laos on Tuesday. Duterte called Obama a "son of a bitch" and warned it will not tolerate any violations of the sovereignty of the Philippines, after which the White house has cancelled his planned meeting with the President of the Philippines.

Unpredictable leader in Manila introduces an unwanted element in an already tense region and creates clouds over the painstaking efforts of Obama to intensify relations between the allies. In a broader sense, anti-Americanism and haphazard diplomacy Duterte a concern among Washington's allies in the region. The new U.S. President will face the regional policy of Chinese President XI Jinping, who will take advantage of the chance to weaken US influence.

Duterte and Obama were to meet on the sidelines of a regional summit in Laos. But the Philippine leader lashed out at Obama, answering a question of journalists, how he will react if Obama talks about human rights violations committed in his formidable war against drug gangs. "I am the President of a sovereign state. And we have long ceased to be a colony of the United States," said Duterte, to paraphrase, as he will answer to Obama. "Son of a bitch, I'd yell at you." Soon Duterte stated that he did not want to insult Obama, he spoke to the reporter.

But it was not the first time that he directed abusive language to the American officials. In August, he called the US Ambassador to Manila Philip Goldberg and insulted by U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry.

Some analysts believe that the statements of the leader of the Philippines represented a long-term real streak of anti-Americanism, which is inseparable from the world of Duterte. "He's trying to develop what he calls an independent foreign policy in the Philippines".

Sooner or later, the situation can cause problems in Washington when members of Congress are asked to support us military assistance to the country. While the policy directions of the US and Asia remains in question, the next President will face a delicate task relations of the President of the Philippines and the United States.
