The Yankee Plot to Overthrow Nicolas Maduro and Steal Venezuelas Oil





Did you believe this lie by the Kuwaiti's ambassador's daughter? ROFL



The Nayirah testimony was a false testimony given before the Congressional Human Rights Caucus on October 10, 1990 by a 15-year-old girl who provided only her first name, Nayirah. The testimony was widely publicized, and was cited numerous times by United States senators and President George H. W. Bush in their rationale to back Kuwait in the Gulf War. In 1992, it was revealed that Nayirah's last name was al-Ṣabaḥ (Arabic: نيرة الصباح‎) and that she was the daughter of Saud Al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. Furthermore, it was revealed that her testimony was organized as part of the Citizens for a Free Kuwait public relations campaign which was run by an American public relations firm Hill & Knowlton for the Kuwaiti government. Following this, al-Sabah's testimony has come to be regarded as a classic example of modern atrocity propaganda.

In her emotional testimony, Nayirah stated that after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait she had witnessed Iraqi soldiers take babies out of incubators in a Kuwaiti hospital, take the incubators, and leave the babies to die.

Her story was initially corroborated by Amnesty International and testimony from evacuees. Following the liberation of Kuwait, reporters were given access to the country. An ABC report found that "patients, including premature babies, did die, when many of Kuwait's nurses and doctors ... fled" but Iraqi troops "almost certainly had not stolen hospital incubators and left hundreds of Kuwaiti babies to die." Amnesty International reacted by issuing a correction, with executive director John Healey subsequently accusing the Bush administration of "opportunistic manipulation of the international human rights movement".... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nayirah_testimony

2. But we have to keep it out of the hands of China and Russia.

You know that's how the game is played.

4. But why? The US is the highest petroleum producing country in the world.

Doesn’t make sense.

7. Well....

depends on what you mean by "good." Because Heavy Sour crude is so widely profuced, most distilleries have been tooled up to handle that type more than the light sweet crude the US produces. In fact, Venezuelas problems have some distillers looking for their variety. American production has put the world awash in light sweet.

8. We don't need their oil. We never needed Iraqi oil, either.

We currently don't control either and yet gas is $1.74/gallon.
