In his speech in Brussels Obama says Iraq is fully sovereign nation while its people are being slaughtered.

Today I was listening to the Speech of President Obama delivered to about 2000 young people in Brussels, I have to admit, as usual he is a good orator but he delivered nothing but hypocrisy.
I am interested in the few points that he raised concerning Iraq and the war that is still raging in that country, that the United Sates started and led to the destruction of that land, its institutions, people, and brought darkness, backwardness and illiteracy.
The President said “And yes, we believe in human dignity, that every person is created equal — no matter who you are or what you look like or who you love or where you come from. That is what we believe.” I wonder what the President means by this statement after his country, and his predecessors brought misery , death and destruction to the area. He himself and his NATO allies took part in destroying Iraq, Libya and Syria in the name of “Democracy” and “human dignity”. What human dignity are you talking about Mr. President? Can you explain to us and clarify to us. Are we seeing a mirage in Iraq, Syria and Libya? Or what we see in these countries that you destroyed is a dream and not reality?
“Big countries cannot simply bully the small.” We see the opposite Mr. President the big countries bully the small, otherwise what do you say about Iraq and other Arab countries that the US and NATO destroyed? Isn’t the United States bullying small nations and preventing them from progress and freedom, and independence?
Russia is right when “pointed to America’s decision to go into Iraq as an example of Western hypocrisy.” You claim that you were against the war against Iraq but many times you stated that Iraq is better off without Saddam Hussein, this is an excuse to justify US occupation and destruction of a sovereign State.
“But even in Iraq, America sought to work within the international system. We did not claim or annex Iraq’s territory. We did not grab its resources for our own gain. Instead, we ended our war and left Iraq to its people in a fully sovereign Iraqi state that can make decisions about its own future.” What a lie , what America sought is rallying its allies to help destroy Iraq for many years since 1991 till now the war is still going on with no cessation, not to forget the deadly embargo that left more than half a million children under the age of five dead in the first six months, this was more than the innocent people that were slaughtered in Nagasaki and Hiroshima by US nukes. The death of the children was justified by Secretary Madeline Albright when she said “the price was worth it”
You do not have to annex Iraq to the US because you left it weak and divided into sectarian sections and indeed you and your Predecessors grabbed the oil of Iraq and robbed billions of dollars under the fallacy of rebuilding Iraq and projects that never started.
Mr. President, did you indeed end the war in Iraq and left it to its people in a fully sovereign state that can make decisions about its own future? Or you left it in an awfull state and handed it on a golden tray to Iran and bloodthirsty sectarians to continue the killings, robbery and destruction?
Mr. President, you are still supporting the criminals and bloodthirsty militias with sophisticated military hardware and heavy weapons to be used against innocent people as we witness in Anbar and other areas in Iraq. Not to forget the Palestinians that are treated as sub humans, their land are being robbed and almost nothing left for them to call home with the blessing and support of the perpetrator , the Zionist “Entity of Israel? I was born in Palestine, in the city of Jaffa, I am deprived from returning home like millions of Palestinians who are living in camps and in the Diaspora.
