One of the Americans’ old tricks is to present fabricated documents to prove false accusations. Once, Colin Powell took to the UN the documents allegedly proving the existence of Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, which were never found.
On Thursday night, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley showed parts of a missile which she claimed was made by Iran and that it was the same missile fired by Yemen at Saudi Arabia. Interestingly enough, Haley, in order to prove her claim, referred to a report which says American parts have also been found in the missile!
The reporters present at Haley’s news show should have asked her about the tens of millions of American weapons which have been the cause of the deaths of millions of men, women and children across the world. At least, reporters could have asked Haley this question: ”Under the supervision of which international institution has Washington transferred to the United States the missile parts from the location of its impact in Riyadh? And if the parts belong to an Iranian-made missile, can the US prove that they are not parts of the same missile that Iran fired at ISIS positions in Syria?”
Saudi Arabia has been attacking Yemen for three years now with American and British weaponry. UN figures suggest that at least 10,000 men, women and children have been killed in the Saudi aggression on Yemen. Still, the key backers of Saudi Arabia, namely Britain and the US, are not willing to stop selling weapons to Riyadh.
Last week, I asked British MP Andrew Mitchell why London did not stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia despite the fact that the UK has acknowledged that human crisis exists in Yemen. His answer was short: Because Saudi Arabia is rich and can buy a lot of weapons!
Earlier, Donald Trump had described as “beautiful” billions of dollars worth of arms the US had sold to Saudi Arabia. This comes as Haley, on Thursday, described as “ugly” and horrendous the missile fired by the Yemenis at Riyadh in response to the daily bombardment of their country by Saudi Arabia. The Yemeni missile attack did not have any casualties, either.
Shouldn’t we be afraid of the “beautiful” world that the US wants to build?
