Member of the Belgian Chamber of Representatives gives truly unbelievable speech

Member of the Belgian Chamber of Representatives for the People’s Party Laurent Louis gives one of the single most unbelievable speeches I’ve ever heard from a politician.
The speech, which clocks in just under 14 minutes and was translated into English by Geraldine Feuillien, leaves no stone unturned.
Louis covers everything from the intervention in Mali (which he characterizes as a neo-colonialist operation and voted against), the “so-called do-gooders both left and right wingers or from the center who are today licking the boots of our corrupted powers,” and even the September 11, 2001 attacks.
He doesn’t spare journalists either, saying, “I don’t have much respect neither for the journalists who have the audacity to label the opponents as mentally retarded while basically, they know very well that these opponents are right.”
Speaking of 9/11 he said, “Haven’t we created September 11th, after all, to justify the invasions, arbitrary arrest, torture and massacre of innocent populations?”
Louis also points out the duplicity of the reasoning behind the intervention in Mali.
“But yes! We have to act, otherwise the evil Islamists will impose Sharia law in Mali, stoning women and cutting the thugs’ hands off. Oh! The intention is truly noble. Noble and salutary for sure,” Louis said.
“But then why is it, Good Lord, why is it that our countries have contributed in Tunisia and Libya to the accession to power of Islamists who have decided to apply this Sharia Law in these countries which were still not so long ago, modern and progressive?” Louis asked.
I might add Egypt to that list since their so-called revolution (which I questioned back in 2011) has resulted in little to no progress and a great deal of continued violence and death, not to mention a state of emergency.
“I invite you to ask the young Tunisians who have launched the revolution in Tunisia, if they are happy with their current situation? This is all hypocrisy,” Louis continued. “The purpose of this war in Mali is very clear.”
“And since no one talks about it, I will. The purpose is to fight against China and allow our American ally to maintain its presence in Africa and the Middle East. This is what guides these neo-colonialists operations,” Louis said.
“And you will see, when the military operation will be over, France will, of course, keep its military bases in Mali. These bases will be a benefit to the Americans as well,” he said.
“And at the same time, as has always been the case, Western corporations will put their hands on juicy contracts that will once again deprive re-colonized countries of their wealth and raw materials,” Louis said.
Unfortunately, this is precisely the blueprint that the West has followed in the past. There is no indication that it will change in this case.
