Power gives the Slavo-Tartar hordes a piece of her mind
If there's one thing all great diplomats like Talleyrand, Metternich and Franklin have in common it's a propensity for moralizing, grandstanding and rage. That's what makes Samantha Power such an effective diplomat and the perfect pick for ambassador to the UN.
Truly what would the UN be without someone willing to tell the Russians what they are (barbarians) and questioning whether they should be there at all (they shouldn't). Link:
"What Russia is sponsoring and doing is not counter-terrorism, it is barbarism."
"Instead of pursuing peace, Russia and Assad make war. Instead of helping get life-saving aid to civilians, Russia and Assad are bombing the humanitarian convoys, hospitals and first responders who are trying desperately to keep people alive." [Of course Samantha presented tons of evidence this was really the case.]
"It is time to say who is carrying out those airstrikes and who is killing civilians."
"Russia holds a permanent seat on the UN Security Council. This is a privilege and it is a responsibility. Yet in Syria and in Aleppo, Russia is abusing this historic privilege."
After all the US is such a peaceful and enlightened nation, that hardly ever goes to war (it's currently engaged in mere five or six of them). How can it possibly be expected of such a peaceful nation to mix shoulders with brutes such as the Russians who are not satisfied to wage war against ISIS alone but also want to go after the people who brought down the towers on 9/11?
Don't they know the real war is (on the side of al-Qaeda) against Assad al-Hitler? The guy who starved and invaded Iraq, is occupying Afghanistan, bombed Libya and is drone bombing Somalia, Pakistan and Yemen (and is helping Saudis starve it).
