In a speech delivered in New York, Noam Chomsky explained why he believes the US and its closest allies, namely Saudi Arabia and Israel, are undermining prospects for peace in Middle East.

Chomsky also explained in his speech why he believes the US poses the greatest threat to world peace.

"[The United States] is a rogue state, indifferent to international law and conventions, entitled to resort to violence at will,” the globally renown scholar said.

“Take, for example, the Clinton doctrine—namely, the United States is free to resort to unilateral use of military power, even for such purposes as to ensure uninhibited access to key markets, energy supplies and strategic resources—let alone security or alleged humanitarian concerns.”

“And adherence to this doctrine is very well confirmed and practiced, as need hardly be discussed among people willing to look at the facts of current history.”

Chomsky also explained why he believes the US and its closest allies, namely Saudi Arabia and Israel, are undermining prospects for peace in the Middle East.

“When we say the international community opposes Iran’s policies or the international community does some other thing, that means the United States and anybody else who happens to be going along with it.”
