S.E. Cupp Calls Out the U.N.: ‘Metaphorically Masturbating While the World Is Watching’ Syria

HLN host S.E. Cupp called out the United Nations for “metaphorically masturbating” amid the international attention the chemical attack that took place in Syria, which was allegedly carried out by forces connected to the Bashar al-Assad regime.

Cupp opened her segment by slamming Barack Obama‘s “red line” chemical weapons policy, which he infamously backed off of by punting the issue to Congress. The issue was then debated on Capitol Hill, but action against Assad for crossing the “red line” was ultimately never taken.

“Nobody was held accountable for the attack,” lamented Cupp. “Not by the US, and certainly not by the UN.”

She continued by explaining how the situation got worse:

“Next month the UN is set to hold a chemical weapons disarmament conference. Guess who is set to preside over it? Syria. I’m not making this up. So, from calling inquiry after inquiry to issuing condemnation after meaningless condemnation, the UN Is busy metaphorically masturbating while the world is watching yet another chemical weapons attack unfold against innocent civilians. According to a report by the Syrian network for human rights, the Assad regime has used internationally prohibited weapons as many as 200 times. Now, you say, ‘that’s awful, that’s terrible, but it’s got nothing to do with me.’ Actually, as our next guest argues, Assad has managed to normalize the use of chemical weapons to a point where dictators around the world have managed to flout international law without accountability.”

Cupp went on to ask, “What’s the point of having international laws if no one’s going to enforce them?”
