Nikki Haley Speaks on Syria Strikes: ‘The Time for Talk Ended Last Night’

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley spoke at the United Nations today on the Syria strikes last night undertaken by the U.S., the U.K., and France.

“The time for talk,” she declared, “ended last night.”

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

“We cannot stand by, she said, “and let Russia trash every international norm that we stand for and allow the use of chemical weapons to go unanswered.”

Haley said there’s “clear information” that the Assad regime was responsible for the attack and added, “The pictures of dead children were not fake news. They were the result of the Syrian regime’s barbaric inhumanity.”

She continued:

“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. When our President draws a red line, our President enforces the red line.”
