The Russo-Ukraine conflict really shows who is really a hypocrite and who is not. Arnold Schwarzenegger has recently come out and presented a message to the Russian people. Schwarzenegger declared:
“Those in power in the Kremlin started this war. This is not the Russian people’s war. It is a humanitarian crisis.” Arnold moved on to say that the public “are not being told the truth about consequences.
“The strength and the heart of the Russian people have always inspired me. That is why I hope that you will let me tell you the truth about the war in Ukraine and what is happening there.
“No one likes to hear something critical of their government, I understand that. But as a longtime friend of the Russian people, I hope that you will hear what I have to say.”
Come on, Mr. Terminator. Why didn’t you mention NATO in your presentation? Why didn’t you mention the fact that no country on earth will allow any military basis around its borders? Why didn’t you talk about other humanitarian crises, such as the Saudi Arabia war on the civilian population in Yemen? Isn’t the United States supporting that war to this very day? Why are you so quiet about this, Arnold?
U.S. News and World Report is even talking about “Yemen’s War Robs Many Children of Lifesaving Heart Surgery.” Since the beginning of 2022, Saudi Arabia has already executed 100 people. It has been estimated that Saudi Arabia is spending 60 billion a year on the war. Who is going to speak for those Yemeni children and those people, Arnold? You? Why are you so coward?
Saudi Arabia launched the war on the Yemeni population since 2015, and the last time I checked, Arnold Schwarzenegger never said a single word. The Israeli war on the Syrian population is another interesting phenomenon that exposed so-called well-meaning people like Arnold.
In short, Arnold is not genuine at all. He is fake. Unless he starts talking about real issues, then we shouldn’t pay much attention to him and others at all.
