US stance on use of WMDs ‘hypocritical’ : Commentator

The United States’ stance on the use of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) is “hypocritical” since Washington itself is the “greatest purveyor” and the “worst abuser” of such weapons in the world, says a political commentator.

“The US has a very long history of using chemical weapons and supplying them to different regimes in the world - Iraq under Saddam Hussein was a perfect example of that … The United States is wholly hypocritical when it stands that it wants to get rid of chemical weapons when they themselves have a huge stockpile of them,” Jason Unruhe told Press TV in an interview on Thursday.

“This is not a secret and the world knows the United States has massive biological and chemical weapons stored up to be used in various situations. I mean you don’t have chemical weapons or biological weapons unless you intend to use them in some way, shape or form. It is tremendously hypocritical by them,” he added.

This is while Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has lashed out at Western countries for adopting a double-standard policy toward the use of WMDs, reminding them of their support for Saddam Hussein in his war on Iran in the 1980s.
