This month Haley is president of the UN Security Council. An agreement was not reached yesterday on a resolution concerning the Syrian gas attacks because Moscow is trying to find some way to protect its ally without getting a lot of stink on itself.
The dramatic moment quickly unfolding within the Security Council Chamber as Ambassador Haley calmly stands looks directly at a seething Russian Ambassador and holds up photos of dying woman and children, and forcefully declares: “Men, women, the elderly, and children gasping for their very last breath, and as first responders, doctors, and nurses rushed to help the victims, a second round of bombs rained down. They died in the same slow, horrendous manner as the civilians they were trying to save.”
President Trump is “prepared to do more” to stop the ongoing civil war in Syria if Russia cannot convince Syrian President Bashar Assad to abide by cease-fire agreements, a top U.S. diplomat warned Friday.
“The United States took a very measured step last night,” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the U.N. Security Council on Friday. “We are prepared to do more, but we hope that will not be necessary. It is time for all civilized nations to stop the horrors that are taking place in Syria and demand a political solution.”
Works for me.
This was interesting too and it came from a discussion Nikki had with Greta Van Susteren.

She ended her address with this ominous warning. “When the United Nations consistently fails in its duty to act collectively, there are times in the life of states that we are compelled to take our own action.”
The direct confrontation by Ambassador Haley singling out Russia as the culprit behind the curtain, was no doubt dramatic however reminiscent of another defining moment within our history which brought America to the brink of war, when another US Ambassador named Adlai Stevenson glared directly across the room towards his counterpart Ambassador Zorin, and demanded; “Mr. Zorin, let me ask you one simple question. Do you, Ambassador Zorin, deny that the U.S.S.R. has placed and is placing medium and intermediate-range missiles and sites in Cuba? Yes or no? Don’t wait for the translation, yes or no?”
The Russian interpreter attempting to answer Stevenson responds: “‘I’m not … I am not in an American courtroom, sir, and therefore I do not wish to answer a question that is put to me in the fashion in which a prosecutor does. In due course, sir, you will have your reply.'”
Ambassador Stevenson glaring at Zorin responds: “I am prepared to wait for my answer until hell freezes over, if that’s your decision.”
If you ask me she was awesome and we need more politicians like her!
