Plucky Bolivia Lambasts Law-Breaking US in a Courageous Security Council Address

US is a rogue state and Bolivia has the cojones to say it

The US may believe itself to be the globe's sheriff but Bolivia wants it to know it's actually just a very powerful bandit state.

Speaking at a UN Security Council meeting convened over Trump's attack on Syria the Bolivian ambassador stood up for international law:

"Now the United States believe that they are investigators, they are attorneys, judges and they are the executioners. That's not what international law is about."

"I believe it's vital for us to remember what history teaches us and on this occasion (in 2003), the United States did affirm, they affirmed that they had all the proof necessary to show that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction but they were never found … never were they found."

"The unilateral actions are imperialistic actions. The USA is not interested in international law; they ignore it when it is inconvenient to them."

The US is an imperialist power with a history of seizing upon lies to launch illegal catastrophic wars which has again took it upon itself to act as the judge, jury and executioner well before the truth of its case for war could be established! Good! Somebody had to say it and it was good Bolivia was there to do it.


We'd also like to ask the guys at RT what the hell are you doing?:


"Bolivia trolls US"? What kind of a lazy, nihilistic headline is that? We understand you may be overworked but it's not okay to demean what you apparently can not appreciate or understand. Having principles and sticking by them is not "trolling". It's what this world needs more of.
