On December 14, US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley just came with a Colin Powell-like statement calling Iran as a “global threat” and presented what she called an evidence of the country’s “destabilizing behavior” in the Middle East.
Haley said that US agencies and their international partners are currently investigation Iran’s ballistic missiles program and “its support for terrorists, proxy fighters and dictators.”
Haley was standing in front of a partially incinerated missile shell purported to have been fired into Saudi Arabia from Yemen while he told reporters that Iranian weapons are spreading throughout the region.
“Our new strategy was prompted by the undeniable fact that the Iranian regime’s behavior is growing worse. The nuclear deal has done nothing to moderate the regime’s conduct in other areas,” she said adding that the US will establish an international coalition to “push back” against Iran. “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.”
The vestiges a missile shown by Haley were allegedly found in Saudi Arabia after it had been intercepted near a civilian airport in Riyadh.. Haley said that this is a proof of Iranian attacks against US allies in the Middle East.
Haley’s press conference was just a mirror of the infamous speech of then US Secertary of State Colin Powel in the UN Security Council on February 5, 2003, when the US official presented a fake vial with anthrax to justify the US invasion in Iraq.
