Is Venezuela the next State America will invade to protect the people?
Chemical Weapons and Media Disinformation: Venezuela’s President Maduro Accused of Using “Toxic Weapons” against Protesters.
Chemical weapons kill by causing a terrible death mostly to innocent people not involved in the conflict, but just by being nearby. That inevitably includes children. Those who do not die immediately will live scarred for life physically and mentally.
There is a reason why the use of chemical weapons is banned. They kill and maim indiscriminately. Considering that nuclear weapons have a more long-lasting and wider lethal effect should make them the primary target of a total ban. Why nuclear weapons are not banned for the same reason is beyond rationale.
But, beware. Chemical weapons can also have long term and broader effects.
Nowadays our main concern is about the use of chemical weapons because they have recently caused the death of a reported 80 people including many children near the city of Homs in Syria.
The U.S. has accused the Syrian government of using chemical weapons that Syria is not even possessing, as confirmed by the UN. Based on their own unproven accusation the U.S. decided to strike Syria with a reported 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles. It is important to say “unproven” because there is no evidence of responsibility.
The U.S. track record speaks loudly!
The U.S. develops and keeps chemical weapons.
The U.S. facilitates the distribution of chemical weapons.
The U.S. has used chemical weapons infamously in Vietnam.
The U.S. has the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons.
The U.S. has used nuclear weapons.
The U.S. promotes a warmongering bloody foreign policy.
And finally, we have all seen over and over how the U.S. uses disinformation to justify its own imperial interventions.
Why would this time be different?
