United States 'locked and loaded' to strike Syria again if new attack

United States 'locked and loaded' to strike Syria again if new attack

"The time for talk", she declared, "ended last night".

One clear takeaway from Haley's remarks was how she repeatedly called out Russian Federation on multiple fronts: for their "disinformation campaign" following the strike and for their repeated Security Council vetoes on past Syria resolutions.

Haley's comments came hours after President TrumpDonald John TrumpInfowars" Alex Jones blasts Trump over airstrikes: "He's crapping all over us' McCain to Trump: Airstrikes alone won't achieve objectives in Syria Top general: USA did not notify Russian Federation on Syria targets MORE, in concert with the United Kingdom and France, launched "precision strikes" on targets in Syria believed to be associated with the country's alleged chemical weapons program.

'Russia can complain all it wants about fake news, but no one is buying its lies and its cover-ups, ' she said of Syria's strongest ally, ' Haley said.

Russia was also strongly criticized by ambassadors for the United Kingdom and France, with both officials criticizing Russian protection of the Assad regime and emphasizing the body of evidence that they say pointed to the Assad regime's fingerprints on the chemical weapons attacks.

The United States warned Saturday that is was "locked and loaded", ready to launch more military strikes on Syria if President Bashar al-Assad's forces carry out a new chemical weapons attack.

In what may be seen as a jab at former President Barack Obama, who famously drew a red line on chemical weapons use in Syria in 2012 but was accused of failing to follow through, Haley promised that Trump would not waver: "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line". "We are prepared to sustain this pressure if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will".

Global law banned chemical weapons in 1925. He also described the use of chemical weapons as "abhorrent" and called on the Security Council to agree on a dedicated mechanism to assure accountability for chemical weapons use in Syria.

Syria and its allies, Russian Federation and Iran, have denied that Assad's government used chemical weapons in the attack, which left more than 40 people dead. "You have nothing but disdain for the U.N. Charter and the Security Council which you are unjustifiably trying to use for your illicit aims".

Guterres said the Security Council has primary responsibility for the maintenance of global peace and security and called on the members of the Security Council to unite and exercise that responsibility.

Trump ordered a missile strike on Syria in April past year in retaliation for an earlier alleged chemical weapons attack on Khan Sheikhoun. There is no military solution to the crisis.

"Friday night's military action was created to thread a pretty narrow needle - place boundaries around the war Syria, Russia and Iran are waging - without becoming a direct combatant in it", wrote former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State PJ Crowley on the BBC website.
