- US foreign policy is based on a series of lies: Fetzer!
US foreign policy is based on a series of lies like Washington’s fabricated claim that Iran is after developing nuclear weapons, says James H. Fetzer, an editor at Veterans Today.
On Wednesday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov rebuffed US warnings against Russia’s planned oil deal with Iran, saying Moscow will not be intimidated by such threats.
Ryabkov’s remarks were made in response to US Secretary of State John Kerry’s threats on Tuesday that Washington could impose sanctions if Russia and Iran move forward with an oil deal, yet to be finalized, under which Russia will buy 500,000 barrels of Iranian oil per day in return for selling goods to Iran.
“This is a fascinating and important development,” said Fetzer in a phone interview with Press TV on Thursday, adding that “with Iran and the oil program,” Russian President Vladimir Putin “is no longer going to play ball with the West.”
“American foreign policy is based on a series of lies, deceits, and deceptions,” noted Fetzer as he said that Washington and its Western allies have “fabricated this claim that Iran is developing nuclear weapons” in order to impose illegal sanctions against the country.
Fetzer also said that the US and its allies should get used to the fact that their “cheating and bullying” around the world “are no longer going to be accepted passively.”
