China Warns America: Defending Democracy and Human Rights ‘Is Over’
'This is the harsh reality brought to the world by the so-called ‘democracy’
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin slammed the United States military’s decision not to punish those behind the airstrike that killed ten civilians, warning it can no longer use the “pretext” of supporting human rights and democracy.
“While the US talked about ‘democracy’ and ‘human rights at the ‘Summit for Democracy,’ the innocent Afghan people who were gunned down by the US military were brushed aside, and their families had no place to complain about their grievances."
“This is the harsh reality brought to the world by the so-called ‘democracy’ and ‘human rights’ advocated by the U.S.”
As American Military News reported:
The Foreign Ministry spokesperson also slammed America's military interventions in countries like Afghanistan. Iraq and Syria, calling for the international community to “look into the U.S. military’s war crimes of killing innocent civilians around the world and hold it accountable.”
“Justice may be delayed, but it will not be denied.
“The era in which the U.S. acted arbitrarily in the world under the pretext of so-called ‘democracy’ and ‘human rights’ is over.
"The day of reckoning will eventually come for the U.S. military who committed the crimes of killing innocent civilians in many countries.”
Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said following the Aug. 29 strike:
“There was not a strong enough case to be made for personal accountability” for those involved.
“The US troops’ atrocity of killing civilians in Afghanistan is unacceptable."
"It is all the more outrageous that the U.S. exonerates the perpetrators with impunity on various grounds,” Wang said.
China's remarks come amid condemnations of its horrific human rights record.
