U.N. AMBASSADOR NIKKI HALEY JUST BLASTED the U.N. Security Council for sitting on its hands in the past. They have done nothing after past chemical weapons attacks by Syria’s Assad. He just gassed his people for the third time! Nikki Haley stood before the council holding photos of the Syrian children who were gassed.

“We saw rows of lifeless bodies, some still in diapers, some with visible scars of a chemical weapons attack.”
What option do we have after Syria’s Assad gassed his own people? Russia and Iran are assisting Syria so that makes it even harder to deal with:
“If Russia has the influence in Syria that it claims to have, we need to see them use it. The truth is that Assad, Russia, and Iran have no interest in peace. We know that yesterday’s attack was a new low, even for Assad’s regime.”
