“Should the United States and our allies decide to act in Syria, it will be in defense of a principle on which we all agree. It will be in defense of a bedrock international norm that benefits all nations.” – Nikki Haley, lying to the U.N. Security Council
I am disgusted by the frequent misuse of the word defense by sociopaths in power. Attacking first is never a defensive position. That’s her first lie.
The second is disingenuously mentioning our “allies” as if they all had our back. The UK, Israel, and France are backing a potential strike in Syria, yes, but the majority of our allies remain opposed.
The third lie is the idea that taking such action will benefit all nations. World War 3 wouldn’t benefit anyone, especially when the multiple countries that would be involved (Russia, U.S., Israel, possibly even China) possess nuclear weapons.
Despite the fact that President Assad did not gas his own people, Haley is still trying to convince the larger U.N. to support a conflict that risks nuclear war. For her to speak at all about principles is mind-boggling.
Nikki Haley is a disgrace, should be tried for war crimes, and given the most severe consequence possible, as should the majority of the war-mongering elite in power. From the White House to the Deep State to local law enforcement, the textbook terrorists that comprise the American Gestapo must be removed, by force, if necessary. And it will be.
