If the UN doesn't take action, the United States will. (against Russia, Syria & Iran)

While some are instantly condeming Trump for not leaping to any conclusions about the assumption of the British that Putin was involved in the poisoning, they are missing a far bigger move where Trump is having his UN Ambassador call out Russia and Putin's Allies and threatening that the United States will take action against them, if the UN fails to act.

I'd say, that the Trump Administration is sticking with what they know to be true, rather than going off half cocked on what Scotland Yard presumes may be true, but still has no proof.

It would seem that President Trump is willing to put everything on the table against Putin and Russia's Allies (Iran and Assad) just as he's done with Kim Jung Un and China!


" This is no cease-fire,” Haley asserted. “This is the Assad regime, Iran and Russia continuing to wage war against their political opponents.”

“If we can’t save families that haven’t seen the sun for weeks because they have been hiding underground to escape barrel bombs,” she continued, “then the Security Council is as impotent as its worst critics say it is.”


One of the pleasantly surprising bright spots of President Donald Trump’s administration has been the appointment of Nikki Haley as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, who has taken a decidedly blunt and no-nonsense, call-it-like-we-see-it American attitude to the international organization.

Haley delivered yet another fiery speech to the U.N. Security Council on Monday, in which she placed the council on notice for its utter failure to maintain a temporary cease-fire agreement in Syria. She explicitly called out Russia and Syria, as well as Iran, for their roles in the continued fighting in violation of a recent Security Council resolution, according to TheBlaze.

Her eight-minute speech boiled down to one pointed message: If the U.N. doesn’t do anything to address the contempt with which the Security Council resolution was treated by Russia and Syria, the U.S. military will.


As Haley began, she noted all of the promises made by Russia in regard to enforcing the resolution which imposed a 30-day cease-fire in the area of Ghouta, a suburb of Damascus, and pointed out how fighting and bombing was still ongoing in spite of the agreement that Russia claimed to support.

She further noted that Russia and Syria had taken advantage of a “loophole” in the agreement that allowed for military action against terrorist organizations like al-Qaida and the Islamic State group by essentially declaring all opposition groups and civilians in Ghouta to be “terrorists” and open to attack.

“This is no cease-fire,” Haley asserted. “This is the Assad regime, Iran and Russia continuing to wage war against their political opponents.”

“If we can’t save families that haven’t seen the sun for weeks because they have been hiding underground to escape barrel bombs,” she continued, “then the Security Council is as impotent as its worst critics say it is.”

“When the international community consistently fails to act, there are times when states are compelled to take their own action,” Haley said, as she reminded the council of the U.S. missile strikes in April 2017 in response to Syrian chemical attacks on civilians.

" “We warn any nation that is determined to impose its will through chemical attacks and inhuman suffering, most especially the outlaw Syrian regime, the United States remains prepared to act if we must,” she added. “It is not the path we prefer, but it is a path we have demonstrated we will take, and we are prepared to take again.”

The same sort of Peace through Strength that Trump has exhibited in the NoKo Nuke Missile Crisis. Kim Jung Un is about to fold like a bad hand in Texas Hold em.  Wink

Far too many people for far too long have been pissing around the edges and not taking these people to the mat..hard, when and where they need to.  All this bullshit about sanctions and tit for tat, is nothing compared to where the real conflict with Russia is;  It's about Land and power and Putin strengthening his hand through alliances.  President Trumps going the distance with him just aas he is with China and their puppet North Korea.  He's not distracted by the political noise.

Ok, but that isn't specific.

What exactly do you really him to do?

You're such a funny guy Wally! Grin

Satellite images show North Korea has restarted production of plutonium, presumably for its nuclear weapons program — a chilling discovery as leader Kim Jong Un seeks a summit with President Donald Trump.

The troubling images of a revved-up Yongbyon reactor emerged last week, but went mostly unnoticed amid Trump’s announcement he’d be willing to sit down with Kim.
