Nikki Haley has her Colin Powell Moment at UN Security Council Meeting (video)

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: They stole my idea. I’m just kidding.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has had her Colin Powell moment like when he went to the UN Security Council and presented lie, after lie, after lie in pursuit of a seal of legitimacy for George W. Bush’s illegal bombing and invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Lie After Lie After Lie: What Colin Powell Knew Ten Years Ago Today and What He Said

It was a shameful moment in American history and a proud moment for neocon war-mongers everywhere. I’m talking about today.

The neocons were outraged when Trump and Sec. of State Tillerson announced an end to the 6+ years of Obama regime change operations in Syria last week. They were mortified that the Deep State would not get their prize. That the Kurds would not get Greater Kurdistan. War-mongering trolls like Sen. John McCain were livid at the thought of a president coming into office with a plan of his own to end his predecessor’s regime change terrorist operation.

Today Nikki Haley has gone before the UN Security Council and held up phony “evidence’ in an attempt to motivate them into voting for a joint resolution to invade Syria and remove Bashar al-Assad from office. She waved around pictures of children, USING KIDS AS PROPS ONCE AGAIN, in hopes to shame them into a vote for more war and death… AND MORE DEAD CHILDREN of course.

Listen to the logic she employs to make her case. It’s like a 12-year-old’s debate class mid-term project.

We do not know everything about the attack. But we do know yesterday’s attack bears all the hallmarks of the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons… we know that yesterday’s attack was a new low for the barbaric Assad regime

Just that quickly, in three sentences, she went from admitting there is not one single shred of evidence that the attack happened or who it came from… to saying it was a “new low” for Assad. Done. Finished. Assad did it. What she basically said was: “We don’t anything about the attack, but evil Assad did it and he must be punished”

As Haley reads her scripted statement, she delivers her lies in the same, sing-songy wooden manner that Hillary Clinton used to. Talking about dead kids and chemical weapon usage like she is reading the daily action reports to a board room of stock holders. That should tell you something right there.

The press today asked questions of Trump at his meeting with the Jordanian leader that were tantamount to “so what you gonna do about it? Let Assad punk you like Obama did?” I mean, it’s outrageous. They are LITERALLY screeching for war.

I can’t wait to hear fake progressive Rachel Maddow doing her Bill O’Reilly circa 2003 impersonation tonight.

And they’ll all be doing it because.. well… let’s face it… launching a war would be a hell of a lot better for them than watching Susan Rice twist and turn in front of a congressional hearing.

Maybe this is all because Trump was leaning toward ending the regime change operation. Maybe they just needed a distraction from the Susan Rice thing. Maybe Trump just wanted to sound magnanimous the other day before this thing kicked off. Because maybe someone hasn’t given up on this yet:


Or maybe the Russians were right and they hit a chemical weapons munitions depot cut out of the rock in that area where we see all the victims in the staged videos and the war-mongers figured they could spin the attack into something in their favor that served all the interests I listed above.

Unlike our UN ambassador, I am not going to come to any conclusions without any facts to support them.

Fortunately, at this point, Trump and Mattis are being a bit coy about how they intend to proceed.

Haley says if the UN doesn’t authorize a “humanitarian bombing” based on this staged bullshit propaganda, then the US may just “go it alone” again. But last time I checked, Nikki Haley isn’t the Commander in Chief. Maybe she wants to be. But she isn’t right now.

Tell you what, this is what you get when you don’t prosecute war-criminals from previous administrations. Obama should have been arrested. Hillary should have been arrested. And Bush/Cheney should have been locked up LOOOONG ago.

That’s why you see these less than creative criminals retooling performances of criminals past. Yeah, this is her Colin Powell moment and it’s pretty sad.

Please help keep AE up and running if you can.

I could REALLY use the help right now

Thank you all so much

  1. I have a feeling that the world is not safe until americans make a revolution against Pentagon and White House.

  2. Could’ve swore I heard Samantha Powell..

  3. I’d love to hear her speak Urdu/Punjabi with that affected Carolina twang

  4. Haley wanted the UN Security council to vote to carpet-bomb Syria like the Empire did Libya. However she didn’t press for a vote, since another veto (the eighth re. Syria) would have made the Empire look impotent. Of the permanent UNSC members, only France and the U.K. would have voted for humanitarian genocide. Of the eleven non-permanent members, only Ukraine was with the Empire. (Normally there are ten non-permanent members, but Italy and Holland are currently sharing a membership.) By the way, the Empire wants India to become a permanent UNSC member (but without veto power), since the Indian government is extremely neoliberal, and pro-Israel.

  5. when will the decision be made? They should ban her from the UN….

    • they should ban a lot of people from the UN. it’s a long list and gets longer every time we have an election over here, unfortunately.

    • The UNSC adjourned today without voting. Will there be another meeting tomorrow? The Empire has not yet decided. Russia’s Vitaly Churkin vetoed Nikki Haley three weeks ago, but then Churkin died. Ms. Haley was hoping that the Russian delegation would now be more submissive to the Empire. She was wrong. Fake leftist “pacifists” are demanding that Trump “man up” and annihilate Syria’s people “for the children.” On 24 April the UNSC delegates will visit Trump at the White House, and will visit with some Congress members. Israel wants UNSC membership, but this would require a two-thirds vote among the 193 nations of the General Assembly, which won’t happen.

  6. The YouTube video below (22 seconds) was uploaded to YouTube on 3 April. It purports (in Arabic) to show the “gas attack” the following day. Could the video have been uploaded on 4 April, but registered on YouTube as 3 April? No, because the “attack” is alleged to have happened at 6:30 am Syrian time, which would have been 11:30 pm US EDT. The numbers don’t align. Note also how the supposed “gas attack” throws up an ordinary dust cloud.

  7. Bannon is on his way out. W/o him there will be not an ounce of redeeming quality in Trump administration.

    St. Petersburg bombing, Susan Rice story, Syria, pushing Bannon out might all be connected… St. Petersburg bombing could have been an offer made by Putin to Trump to solidify common front on Syria. For this reason it was totally downplayed in western news.

    Do you remember after Paris bombing when French fell in love with Russia and Putin and were willing to help him in his fight in Syria? And how this was derailed? By shooting down Russian fighter jet by Turks and all Nato members had to close ranks including the French.

  8. We are now at the starting line, on our marks, and set to go war. All we need as a final trigger is some heart-rending testimony from a young nurse. something along the lines of:

    “I volunteered at the Aleppo hospital with twelve other women who wanted to help as well. I was the youngest volunteer. The other women were from twenty to thirty years old. While I was there I saw the Syrian soldiers come into the hospital with guns. They took the babies out of the incubators, took the incubators and left the children to die on the cold floor. [sob, sob, sob] It was horrifying.”

  9. Love your blog, you inspire me.

  10. Assad has been beating America’s mercenary goons(a.k.a. ISIS) without resorting to chemical attacks. Why should he start now?

  11. Wait, these unfortunates we’re hit and then when responders came they were hit again? Hmm, this does indeed have all the hallmarks … all the hallmarks of a U.S. military attack.
