Opinion from a Libertarian ViewPoint

Nikki Haley Owes Us an Apology | Gold Goats ‘n Guns

Posted by M. C. on November 20, 2017

It is proof positive that she has exactly the wrong temperament to be a diplomat and negotiator.  She’s a bully…

One has to be a bully sometimes when you are on a mission to create a world empire. Or when you are desperate to keep what empire you have.

More botheration over some silly gas attacks. I thought the science was settled!

After getting thoroughly outmaneuvered at the U.N. Security Council meeting this week, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley apologized in advance to the Syrian victims of the next chemical weapons attack.

The sheer arrogance of this statement is staggering.

As an American, Haley is an embarrassment and unfit to represent my interests at the U.N.  Her outburst was in response to Russia vetoing the latest attempt by her to bully the UNSC to accept a resolution extending the investigation into the April chemical weapons attack at Khan Sheikhoun in Syria.

This investigation, known as the JIM, is a complete joke.  In all the time the U.N. has been operating under it there has been no inspection of either the site of the attack itself or where it supposedly emanated from, the Syrian airbase at al-Shairat.

The problem for the U.S., however, is more and more of the world rolls its eyes at the shambolic mix of desperation and ineptitude exhibited by Haley and her entourage.

The final vote which ended this farce came after a wild week of resolutions and counter-resolutions which highlighted the growing discontent of the U.S.’s allies on this issue.

The fact that multiple reliable U.S. allies abstained or voted with Russia when Bolivia introduced Russia’s draft resolution after Russia vetoed the JIM extension, including Japan, is telling of just how fed up with our duplicity everyone is.

Haley’s childish outburst, pre-apologizing for chemical weapons attacks unlikely to occur now that the U.S.-backed rebels have been subdued through Russian-led diplomatic and military efforts, is one for the history books.  It is proof positive that she has exactly the wrong temperament to be a diplomat and negotiator.  She’s a bully…

Be seeing you
