Another Historic and ABSOULETLY JUSTIFIED Chinese and Russian Veto against Another “DISGUSTED” US/West-led UN Security Council Resolution against Syria!
“US ‘Disgusted’ by Russia, China Veto of Syria Resolution” is the title from the US ABC News on Feb. 5th.
It starts with the following wording:
“The United States is ‘disgusted’ by Russia and China’s decision to veto a U.N. Security Council resolution today that called for an immediate end to the violence in Syria, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice said today.”
However, I serioiusly doubt if the absolute majority of the entire humanity would agree with the language ”disgusted” used by another very arrogant, hawkish and self-righteous UN Ambassador Susan Rice who is a senior US government official.
She reminds many of a notoriously infamous arrogant, hawkish and self-righteous former UN Ambassador John Bolton years back.
It seems it’s becoming more and more a norm for US senior officials in terms of their casual arrogance, hawkishness, and self-righteousness in public sphere.
In this regard, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seems to have become almost equal to that of Bolton before and that of Rice, too, now.
However, it seems not difficult to imagine how genuinely ”disgusted” the world’s majority populations would have felt by learning of Rice’s nasty description of others about their failure “from fulfilling [their] sole purpose [of Regime Change in Syria].”
In fact, by learning of that greatly wonderful news from the UNSC vote on Feb. 4th, those majority populations around the world must have been rejoicing and quite relieved, at least for the moment, from the fear they dreadfully had last March 17 at UNSC Resolution 1973 against Libya.
Needless to say, it’s obiously due to the UGLY history of US/Israel/West-led another “disgusted” (in fact, criminal) resolution of UNSC which might have provided another “disgusted” justification for another US/West-led military aggression this time against Syria, as they did last time against Libya.
I wonder if she’d have ever been able to understand it’s the 99.9%, NOT the 0.01% she represents, of the world’s entire population is the very one who should feel extremely “disgusted” by the continued US/West’s arrogant, bully, cunning, despicable (and deceptive), erroneous (and erratic), flagitious (and foolish), gruesome, heinous (and hypocritical), irrational (and irritating), jealous, kooky, lying, mendacious, nefarious, opaque (obscure), questionable, ridiculous, suspicious, terrible, unnatural, vicious, wicked, “x, y, and z” actions and words.
Moreover, Ambassador Rice charged Russia should be “even more shameful” for their ”selling weapons to Syria.”
Again I really wonder if she’d have ever been able to realize it’s the US who’s been uncomparably the Number ONE in the world for decades now in the global arms sales.
This is the title of a Reuters report: “U.S. leads world in foreign weapons sales: Report”; “The United States accounted for more than two-thirds of foreign weapons sales in 2008, a year in which global sales were at a three-year low, The New York Times reported on Sunday.”
I do hope she should try to find a time to read the following excerpts from both Reuters and the New York Times’ articles:
“Citing a congressional study released on Friday, the Times said the United States was involved in 68.4 percent of the global sales of arms. U.S. weapons sales jumped nearly 50 percent in 2008 despite the global economic recession to $37.8 billion from $25.4 billion the year before. The jump defied worldwide trends as global arms sales fell 7.6 percent to $55.2 billion in 2008, the report said. Global weapons agreements were at their lowest level since 2005. Italy, the second ranked country, amassed only $3.7 billion in arms sales, while Russia ranked third with sales falling to $3.5 billion in 2008, down from $10.8 billion in 2007.” Reuters: By Jasmin Melvin WASHINGTON | Sun Sep 6, 2009
However, Ambassador Rice’s arrogant, hawkish and self-righteous words as an act of terror didn’t stop there.
She even charged both Chinese and Russian vetoes at the Saturday’s UNSC vote as “unforgivable.”
It seems she must be also another typical US senior official like her past and present colleagues who seem almost all the time habitually or conveniently forget or willfully ignore of the US’ own “unforgivable” crimes whose numbers are countless.
Not even mentioning of their habitual lies, willful fabrications, false witnesses, misinformation, disinformation, and so on.
It seems their psychotically habitual forgetfulness as their another “social disease,” just like the white racism, is universal among almost all of those senior US officials including President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton now.
Thus I really wonder if Rice would ever be able to correctly realize if those 99.9% of the world’s populations would ever “forgive” US/West’s countless number of “unforgivable” crimes against almost the entire non-white populations around the world.
It seems particularly true in the case of Ms. Rice if she’d ever be able to understand what kinds of “unforgivable” crimes the white colonial powers have committeed against those “80 to 100 million” Native American populations and over “10 to 20 million” African Black slave populations for over more than five centuries now.
The ABC news also introduces disappointments of the America’s Western (so-called) “allies” or, as many call, “subordinates,” such as Briton, France and Germany:
- French Ambassador Gerard Araud: The vetoes were a “sad day for the UN Security Council … a sad day for democracy and a sad day for Syrians. … Hundreds of Syrians are dying and it is no longer possible to wait. “
- Peter Wittig, the German ambassador to the United Nations criticized the vetoes by saying, “This is the real scandal.”
- British Ambassador to the U.N. Mark Lyall said Russia and China should “ask themselves how many more deaths they are prepared to tolerate.”
I really wonder if those three former however still very much imperialistic Western colonial powers’ UN Ambassadors believe they could ever have any moral and political rights to use the words such as “sad for the UNSC, sad for democracy and Syrians” or “the real scandal.”
I am really sorry for their psychotically habitual hypocrisy, dishonesty, and morally bankrupted conscience.
I am absolutely “sad” for their sellout souls.
Their habitually deceptive words and flat lies are “the real scandal” for their own peoples and for the whole humanity as well.
What China and Russia did yesterday at the UNSC was historic and absolutely justifiable vote not only for the sake of the absolute majority of Syrians but also for the sake of the whole humanity.
Their heroic acts, therefore, should deserve high praise and applaud for their strategically correct decision, courage and moral conscience.
The pressures and accusations from the US/West-dominant UNSC bodies and their globally-monopolized mainstream media as their official propaganda machines must have been so severe and heavy.
However, those two permanent Security Council members acted independently and self-determinedly according to the fundamental principles of international justice and peace, particularly to the principle of “mutual non-interference in other’s internal affairs.”
Now, from both inside and outside, the globally-orchestrated political accusations, pressures and demonization of Russian Prime Minister Putin have been particularly relentless.
The US/West-led demonization and ”Divide and Conquer” strategy of Russian society and its vast territory, rich resources and diverse populations is mounting daily.
So it must have been extremely difficult for Russian government not to give in to the US/West’s pressures to allow them to again indiscriminately bomb, invade and destroy another sovereign independent nation Syria.
Therefore what China and Russia did was strategically extremely important for the immediate future of the whole globe by not allowing the US/Israel/West to go ahead with the UNSC resolution as their political and legal cover to justify their greedy and demonic aggressions and massacres and destructions.
The Saturday resolution was drafted by Arab League and European countries. And it was (so-called) ”supported” by 13 other Security Council members this time but two, namely China and Russia.
However, as many around the globe have already challenged particularly during and after the Libyan invasion, the Arab League, together with Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), is another sellout body in the Middle East region now.
There is no doubt about another turn-out-to-be vicious propaganda machine of the US, i.e., the Al Jazeera of the Qatari Kingdom which is under the US patronage, however.
There is no doubt about another turn-out-be vicious propaganda machine of the US/Israel, the Al Jazeera which is owned by the Qatar Kingdom, however, which is under the US patronage.
The word “their” in the language of Rice’s statement: ”any further blood that flows will be on their hands” clearly refers both Chinese and Russian.
However, I also seriously doubt if the world’s majority populations would agree what Ms. Rice said on that.
It seems they’d rather believe the word “their” Rice used should mean first and foremost the US/Israeli and those three Western governments, not the Chinese and Russians.
Instead they’d be rather supportive what Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said the UNSC Resolution did not “accurately reflect the real state of affairs” in Syria and “sent an unbalanced signal to the parties” was absolutely correct and objective.
Russian concerns about the ”regime change” by “influential members of the international community who have been undermining the possibility of a settlement in Syria” seem also absolutely justified, credible and real.
What US and the West are trying to do seems a carbon copy of what they did in Libya last year.
What the British Ambassador to UN said on Feb. 4th at the UNSC meeting ”how many more deaths they [Chinese and Russians] are prepared to tolerate” should be instead applied to the Israelis, first and foremost, in their over 40 years of genocidal occupation and policy of Palestinian lands and populations, not to the Chinese and Russians.
