Eric Draitser, geopolitical analyst for stopimperialism.com, på Russia Today – ‘Unbridled hypocrisy?’ US criticizes Iran for aiding pro-Assad militias
Well I think these accusations arise out of US disapproval of this recent summit, which the Iranians put forward in Tehran, that brought together Russia and China and Venezuela and many other players around the world. The United States was kept out of the summit, as were many of the US client states including Qatar and Saudi Arabia. So clearly, the United States is upset at the fact the Tehran is trying to play a central role in conflict resolution, a conflict that the US has been fomenting now for a year and a half.
The comments of course illustrate something far beyond that, and that is the unbridled hypocrisy of Washington – accusing Iran of doing precisely what Washington has been doing, namely forming militias and engaging in fomenting civil war.
