Nikki Haley Attacks Iran, Forgets Her Country Is Currently Bombing Seven Nations – American Herald Tribune

Posted by M. C. on January 10, 2018

On December 14, Haley once again disgraced herself on the international stage, when she displayed a missile that she claimed Iran delivered to rebels in Yemen. This, she warned darkly, was just further evidence of Iran’s nefarious purposes.

During this speech, delivered inside a military hanger in Washington, D.C., she made this amazing statement: Iran’s “ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in war zones across the region.”

Is it possible that she is either not aware of the fact, or is trying to distract from it, that the U.S.’s ‘ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in war zones across the region’? The U.S. is currently bombing seven nations.

There is a photograph of the U.S. ambassador standing in front of the missile in question. It is reminiscent, if not in appearance at least in theme, of then U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell’s appearance before the United Nations on February 5, 2003, where he accused Iraq of having chemical weapons, and dramatically held aloft a test tube which, he proclaimed, represented deadly chemicals in that country’s possession. This, of course, was a lie, and one that enabled the U.S. invasion of Iraq, which killed at least hundreds of thousands of people, displaced millions more, destroyed the country’s infrastructure and left Iraq in chaos…

One must never underestimate the gullibility or short memories of U.S. citizens. The fact that the government lied to them in 2003 about Iraq’s non-existent weapons of mass destruction will do little to deter them from believing the current government’s lies about Iran. But what they also don’t understand, with little knowledge of the Middle East, is the powerhouse that is Iran. With a population thrice that of Iraq, and a powerful, battle-trained military, combined with strong alliances with other nations, Iran is a formidable foe for any invading nation…

Be seeing you
