Ambassador Nikki Haley calls out Assad

IT WAS a proud moment for America when Ambassador Nikki Haley spoke today at the United Nations.

I was critical of President Obama‘s “red line” catastrophe, but the American people and the U.S. Congress were complicit in the indifference to Bashar al-Assad‘s war crimes.

President Trump‘s appeasement over all things Russia and Vladimir Putin have now compounded the original error.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio has this exactly correct.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said Wednesday that he doesn’t think it’s a coincidence that a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria occurred shortly after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson suggested Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad could remain in power.

“In this case now, we have very limited options and look, it’s concerning that the secretary of state, 72 hours ago or a week ago, last Friday, said that the future’s up to the people in Syria on what happens with Assad. In essence almost nodding to the idea that Assad was gonna get to stay in some capacity,” Rubio said on the show “AM Tampa Bay.”

“I don’t think it’s a coincidence that a few days later we see this,” Rubio concluded.

Secretary Rex Tillerson’s careless ignorance has already been proven a disaster for U.S. diplomacy

A military strike won’t solve Syria’s continued collapse, or the crisis in leadership.

The United States and the world have stood by and done nothing for far too long. It’s time to move to militarily options, in the face of the latest chemical weapons attack inside Syria. Secretary Mattis will know what to do.

If the U.S. won’t act against war crimes, we no longer stand for anything.

“If UN won’t act on Syria, ‘we may’…” – Ambassador Nikki Haley
