from The BRICS Post:
Russia warned the US Friday of promoting “unconvincing” data on Syria’s alleged chemical weapons use, and thereby repeating the same errors in the build-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
“What was presented by the Americans does not look convincing to us,” the Kremlin’s top foreign policy adviser Yury Ushakov told reporters.
“I would not want to make any parallels, I would not want to believe that this data can be similar to the situation with the vial that (US) secretary of state Colin Powell brandished at the famous Security Council meeting.”
Ushakov was referring to a UN Security Council meeting in February 2003 at which Powell held up a vial that he said could contain anthrax as he presented cartoon drawings as evidence of Iraq’s alleged arms programmes.
