WEB Notes: Talk about calling the kettle black. Additional reports just revealed the US supplied arms to ISIS, not that this is some new shocking report. The point is the US is doing exactly what they are accusing Iran of doing. Nevertheless, it continues to escalate.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Thursday unveiled recently declassified evidence that she believes proves Iran is violating international law by funneling missiles to Houthi rebels in Yemen.
“Its ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in war zones across the region,” Haley said at a press conference at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C. “It’s hard to find a conflict or a terrorist group in the Middle East that does not have Iran’s fingerprints all over it.”
Haley then pushed back against Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s recent New York Times op-ed, in which he argued that Iran’s military activities comply with international law, saying that a newly released report tells the opposite story of what Zarif claims.
“It tells the story of Iran as the arsonist. The report shows the Tehran regime not putting out fires, but fanning the flames of conflict in the region,” Haley said. “In its strongest language yet, the secretary general’s report shows violation after violation of weapons transfers and ballistic missile activity. The United States welcomes this report, as should every nation concerned about uranium expansion.”
