US Ambassador Nikki Haley was crystal clear during a meeting of the UN Security Council on the United States’ intentions regarding Syria. She said that the US and its allies stand ready to launch additional attacks on Syria’s chemical weapons capabilities if the regime should decide to use the banned weapons in the future.
“Last night, we obliterated the major research facility that it used to assemble weapons of mass murder,” Haley said at UN Security Council meeting called by Russia. “I spoke to the President this morning and he said if the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded,” Haley boldly stated. “When our President draws a red line, our President enforces the red line,” she added in a not-so-subtle shot at the Obama administration.
A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!

The allied strike involving the US, Britain and France on Syria came days after a suspected chemical weapons strike in the Damascus suburb of Douma that officials in the US and several Western countries have blamed on the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Syria and its allies, Russia and Iran, have denied that Assad’s government used chemical weapons in the attack, which left more than 75 people dead and over 500 injured.
Moscow, Damascus and Tehran condemned the strikes which launched over 100 missiles on three chemical weapons production facilities in Syria, accusing the US, France and the UK of violating international law and committing an aggression against a sovereign country. Russia warned there would be consequences over the attack.
Haley adamantly pointed out that Russia not only aided and abetted Syria’s war crimes by using chlorine gas and a nerve agent in defiance of international law, she also called them on the carpet for obstructing UN efforts to ensure such weapons are destroyed and their use curtailed. She then accused Russia of waging a deliberate disinformation campaign in regard to the suspected chemical weapons attacks that resulted in retaliatory targeted missile strikes. Russian bot attacks are up 2,000 percent since the strikes on Syria. She said that past Russian actions through the Security Council had thwarted attempts to rein in the Assad’s regime’s use of chemical weapons, giving the “green light” to the Syrian leader.
“Chemical weapons are a threat to us all,” Haley said. “They are unique threat, a type of weapon so evil that the international community agreed they must be banned. We cannot stand by and let Russia trash every international norm that we stand for.”
“We can all see that a Russia disinformation campaign is in full-force this morning,” Haley stated. “But Russia’s desperate attempts at deflection cannot change the facts. The pictures of dead children were not fake news,” Haley added. “They were the result of the Syrian regime’s barbaric inhumanity. And they were the result of the regime and Russia’s failure to live up to their international commitments to remove all chemical weapons from Syria.”
Haley also stated that Russia and Syria have repeatedly assured the international community that they had complied with demands to get rid of chemical weapons in Syria and stated bluntly that the US would wage a “sustained” military campaign if necessary to prevent further chemical weapon’s use by Syria. Syria is a totally failed state according to Col. Oliver North and they didn’t even attempt to comply with the rules.
President Trump commended the military for a job well done over the precision missile strikes in Syria. Cruise missiles and strikes by manned aircraft were employed in the operation. “A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!” Trump tweeted. “So proud of our great Military which will soon be, after the spending of billions of fully approved dollars, the finest that our Country has ever had. There won’t be anything, or anyone, even close!” he also tweeted.
Haley did not hold back at the UN. She said that President Trump has made it as clear as can be that the continued use of banned chemical weapons by the Syrian regime will no longer be tolerated and will instead receive swift retribution by a “locked and loaded” US-led military coalition. And President Trump keeps his word.
So proud of our great Military which will soon be, after the spending of billions of fully approved dollars, the finest that our Country has ever had. There won’t be anything, or anyone, even close!
