Speaking at the UN during the latest session on Syria’s Idlib Province, US Ambassador Nikki Haley warned Russia and Iran would face “dire consequences” if they continue to back a Syrian military offensive against Islamist rebels in the province.
Idlib is the last major rebel-held territory in Syria, and taking it is seen by Syria and its allies as effectively ending the Syrian War. The US has insisted they oppose any moves into Idlib.
Haley went on to say that Iran and Russia are “cowards interested in a bloody military conquest” and that the US continues to intend to respond militarily if any chemical weapons are used. President Trump has also suggested that a military response could happen if he believes the offensive is a “slaughter.”
Haley was unclear what the “dire consequences” would actually be. Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia reiterated that there was no reason to think Syria would use chemical weapons in Idlib, and said the presence of al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups in Idlib obliges Syria to move against them.

Can this ignorant cow do anything except threaten to send kids out to die for her Establishment masters? Hand her an M-16, give her a vest, and send her to the front lines. If we made these politicians and other parasites do the fighting, the wars would stop tomorrow.
Skip the vest.
I wholeheartedly agree, Carter Mitchell, this totally ignorant banshee can’t do anything but screech threats to send kids out to die for her Zionist masters. She wants war so much? Give her an M-16 and send her to the front lines; I bet she’ll be pissing in her pants as she stares across the field at heavily armed Syrian and Russian soldiers aiming their guns at her .. the same with other politicians and parasites. As you said, if Haley, these politicians and other parasites did the fighting, the wars would soon stop.
The USA has a big investment in the 30,000 terrorists in Iblib, they armed, trained and paid them through the consortium of nations conspiring to cause regime change in Syria.
Now they protect them at the UN while professing to be fighting terrorism in the Mid East.
It is an amazing bit of propaganda to trick the American people into this plan but it isn’t the first time western media completely reversed reality in the States.
Well, they do swallow the official 9/11 yarn.
to think that during the 1990s etc there were only a few hundred al Qaeda in the world. and then once the US started its barbaric ‘war on terrorism’ in ‘response’ to 9-11, and attacked/destroyed/occupied Afghanistan and Iraq (and then Libya and Syria and Yemen etc), there were then tens of thousands….
the US-Saudi-Israeli axis of evil is a generator of world-wide terrorism
I keep hearing terrorist fanboys whining that in Idlib “only 0.5% of the population are terrorists”, and that “according to the UN there are three million people” there.
All right. Let’s ignore the fact that in Aleppo and in Daraa and in East Ghouta the actual number of civilians present turned out to be a tiny fraction of the so called UN estimates.
Let’s ignore America’s own statements of last year that al Qaeda controls every facet of life in Idlib. Let’s give America amnesia about that.
Let’s also accept for the sake of argument that groups like Harakat Nour ad Din al Zenki (which chopped off a sick 12 year old Palestinian boy’s head in Aleppo), Ahrar al Sham (which has repeatedly allied with ISIS) and the other Islamist Muslim Brotherhood inspired groups in Idlib aren’t “terrorists”, but moderate democratic rebels. In fact, let’s accept that they’re civilians and deserving of the same protection as civilians. Let’s accept, then, that 99.5% of the 3 million people present in Idlib are civilians, with only the members of the two al Qaeda fronts (Hayyat Tahrir al Sham and Hurras ad Deen) being terrorists.
So, where does that get us?
Let’s check the figures!
0.5% of 3 million people are individuals who even the terrorist fanboys admit to be terrorists.
0.5% of 3 million = 15000
15000 admitted armed and hardened jihadi terrorists.
That’s equivalent to a full infantry division.
How many al Qaeda did America invade Afghanistan to dislodge, again?
WTF is going on in Idlib. And why is the Niki Trump team so happy to defend Al Quanta whose guys I thought were Hillary”s special Foreign Legion.. that she brought to Syria via Turkey after they took out Momar.. God only knows what type of mess this mop up of the Syrian Rebel Islamists wrill precipitate.. Somebody, quick, before things get any worse, work out some face saving deal to advert the inevitable carnage… And I don’t mean to let them stay put and dig in deeper! as a possibility. Maybe Kosovo wants them?
sometimes I think that in international relations the Russians are about the only adults in the room
Haley is a monster and accomplice to war crimes and crimes against humanity both in Syria and in poor Yemen (and beyond, like with Palestine as well). she should be arrested and put on trial
My beloved country has been reduced to morons like Haley projecting.
We in the U.S. excel at bombing at safe altitudes without fear of repercussion.
I do not believe that we are interested in conquest in terms of plunder, it’s more of a visceral, ‘obey your betters or else’. At least plunder would be rational.
If the DC was a sane society, people like Haley would be institutionalized instead given important positions.
We’ll see who the cowards are, won’t we.
Haley’s statement about Iran and Russia being “cowards interested in a bloody military conquest” has got to be the very best example of the pot calling the kettle black. Ever. There is not even a close second.
She support the brave guys shooting babies over a fence. She is just a mouth in support of anything to become more important
Nimrata “Nikki” Randhawa to the ICC, pronto!
Running for president in 2020 …
Haley really gets upset that Assad would attack her terrorist. Does he not know we stole the oil fields and Israel needs the fuel to keep their economy going
The Trump Regime is the world’s biggest sponsor of terrorism. It’s primary leaders, from Trump to Haley to Bolton to Pompeo should be put in front of a firing squad to pay for their crimes!
The US-UK-Israeli axis must act to protect and empower its al Qaeda and other jihadi allies and continue its mission to spread massive death, destruction, poverty, chaos, anarchy and irredentism across North Africa and the Middle East until only Israel and Saudi Arabia remain as viable states. This might very well eventuate in World War III, pitting Iran, Russia, Syria and probably China against the US, and with the possible exception of the UK, its NATO allies are unlikely to follow the US into the suicidal quagmire.
I just have to say it, no way around. Is this a coincidence or — are we really seeing the most stupid women on this planet in UN SC? Nikki Haley, and her British counterpart, the woman with poor sense of her age — are definitely the most embarrasing examples of women in power. What is going on? The deep state in both countries is using silly, power hungry women to make idiots of themselves, and demonstrate lucidly what version of womanhood is valued in leadership position. All you have to do is listen to these two stupid women, not caring one bit how stupid they sound, and compare that to, say Russian diplomat. On one hand we have stupidity, on another inteligence. Then, an incredible display of malice coming out of these juvenile “women”, compared to restraint and dignity. I can add many other names in politics, business and sport — where the women happen to be the worst of the worst. I guess this is what these women believe is the gender equality.
