In 2003, the US launched its second war against Iraq on the pretext that the latter was in possession of “weapons of mass destruction” and was secretly aiding and abetting terrorist groups.

2003年,美国以伊拉克藏有“大规模杀伤性武器”并暗中支持恐怖分子为由,发动伊拉克战争。

On Feb. 5, 2003, in a notorious UN Security Council meeting on Iraq, then US Secretary of State Colin Powell presented a test tube containing white powder, claiming that it was somehow evidence corroborating that Iraq was developing chemical weapons.

2021-11-28,时任美国国务卿鲍威尔在联合国安理会会议上拿出一个装有白色粉末的试管,信誓旦旦地说这是伊拉克正在研制的“大规模杀伤性武器”。

In 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that it (the white powder) would have been washing powder.

俄罗斯总统普京2014年谈及此事时说:“那瓶装有不明物体的试管,里面搞不好是洗衣粉。”

"I'm the one who presented it on behalf of the United States to the world, and it will always be a part of my record. It was painful. It's painful now,” Powell later said in an interview with a US media outlet.

鲍威尔在接受美国媒体采访时表示,“我代表美国向全世界展示了这些证据,这一记录将永远伴随我。我现在感到很痛苦。”

Based on the unfounded charges thrown at the Middle Eastern country, the US, together with its allies, went on to invade Iraq without receiving the authorization of the UN. The unprovoked war plunged Iraq into a state of chaos and reportedly led to around 200,000 to 250,000 civilian deaths.

美国以一管“洗衣粉”为由,联合盟友绕过联合国,单方面入侵伊拉克,令这个国家陷入长期动荡,约20万至25万平民死于战乱。

The US is guilty of confounding white with black and making ill-founded accusations against Iraq, behavior that has exposed the evil nature of American intentions. Such reprehensible conduct by the Americans has not only destroyed the lives of innocent people, but has also revealed that the export of US-style “human rights,” which serve the interests of the US and the US only, have become the laughing stock of the international community of nations.

这是美国公然在国际场合招摇撞骗的伎俩,荒唐的理由,让全世界看到了它“丑恶”的嘴脸。美国这种不负责任的行为,不仅对无辜的平民造成巨大的伤害,也让其建立在一己之私上的所谓“民主人权”沦为笑柄。
