The United States does not consider itself constrained by the UN Security Council and will continue to invade and occupy Syria on its own terms, according to the US representative to the UN, Nikki Haley.
Haley said on Friday that with or without unity of the UN council, Washington “will continue to fight for its justice and accountability in Syria, because Russia is wasting our time she said.
Her remarks provoked an angry response from Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who accused her of having engaged in a “fake diplomacy.” “It seems we are witnessing a new phenomenon in international relations, as now, apart from fake news, there is also fake diplomacy,” Lavrov said.
The US has long history of taking actions in Middle Eastern countries with no mandate from the United Nations. Back in August 2014, Washington along with some of its allies launched a campaign of air strikes against what are said to be ISIS positions inside Iraq.
The coalition expanded its campaign to Syria in 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate.
The hostile US air strikes have on many occasions–both in Iraq & Syria— resulted in civilian casualties and failed to fulfill their declared aim of countering terrorism.
The crooked and corrupted US Defense Secretary James Mattis claimed on Monday that “the UN said that …basically we can go after ISIS, and we’re there to take them out? The only difference in this type propaganda is that the USA support ISIS as their boots on the ground, and does not attack them, instead they have attacked the Syrian Arab Army positions on numerous occasions, in order to serve the Israeli genocidal agenda..
