According to this article, from today’s Independent today, the US has claimed that Syria has interfered in Lebanese elections:
Mr McClellan said Washington wanted the United Nations to send monitors back to Lebanon, even though a UN team as recently as 23 May gave Syria a clean bil of health, saying it had fully complied with the September 2004 Security Council resolution that demanded a total Syrian withdrawal.
The latest accusations are part of a deliberate US strategy to weaken, and ultimately topple, the Baathist regime of President Bashar al-Assad – in large part by exploiting anger throughout the region over Syria’s role in Lebanon and its suspected hand in the assassination of Hariri.
The Bush regime must have forgotten about the US interference in Ukraine:
The most prominent members and activists of Pora were trained by the US-backed elements. A report by the Jamestown Foundation, a think tank whose executive committee includes James Woolsey and former US national security adviser (under President Jimmy Carter) Zbigniew Brzezinski, states: “Otpor has been training Pora members under the auspices of the Citizen Participation in Elections in Ukraine (CPEU) program which is run by Freedom House, the National Democratic Institute, and the International Republican Institute and funded by the US Agency for International Development.”
Then, of course, there was Georgia:
Georgia’s “Rose Revolution” was planned and centrally coordinated by the US government. The 24 November 2033 Wall Street Journal credited the fall of Eduard Shevardnadze’s regime to the operations of “a raft of non-governmental organizations . . . supported by American and other Western foundations.” According to the Journal, the NGOs had “spawned a class of young, English-speaking intellectuals hungry for pro-Western reforms” who laid the groundwork for a bloodless coup. Shevardnadze had switched sides, and was backed by the Russians. Richard Miles, the US ambassador to Georgia, was the chief of mission (effectively ambassador) to Yugoslavia from 1996 to 1999, and laid to groundwork to get rid of Milosevic in 2000.
Perhaps before the US lectures others about interfering in other nations affairs, it should try and practice what it preaches.Powered by Sidelines
