Syria Strikes, Sign of Po­lit­i­cal Bank­ruptcy Of U.S., Al­lies

Iran News - - FRONT PAGE -

TEHRAN (PressTV) - A se­nior Ira­nian of­fi­cial says the re­cent U.S.-led mis­sile at­tack against Syria proved the po­lit­i­cal bank­ruptcy of Washington and its al­lies.

The strikes against Syria were car­ried out un­der a pre­text sim­i­lar to that used by for­mer U.S. Sec­re­tary of State Colin Pow­ell, which led to Washington’s in­va­sion of Iraq in 2003, head of the Atomic En­ergy Or­ga­ni­za­tion of Iran, Ali Ak­bar Salehi, told re­porters.

Dur­ing his pre­sen­ta­tion to the United Na­tions Se­cu­rity Coun­cil in Fe­bru­ary 2003, Pow­ell claimed that Iraq might have tried to buy ura­nium from Niger in or­der to use it for non-peace­ful pur­poses; how­ever, after two years, it was proved that his doc­u­ments were fake, Salehi added.

He noted that false U.S. claims have made peo­ple all over the world vig­i­lant and made them fa­mil­iar with the “real na­ture of the ag­gres­sive coun­tries.”
