At a meeting in the UN Security Council on the condemnation of chemical attacks on Syria, Nikki Haley, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, referring to the Assad’s chemical attack on Duma and the killing of innocent children, said that “only a monster” could carry out such an attack against civilians.
“The monster who was responsible for these attacks has no conscience,” Ambassador Haley said.
“The monster who was responsible for these attacks has no conscience to be shocked by pictures of dead children,” Haley said, explaining that she wouldn’t show photos of the victims as she had after a chemical attack in April 2017 that led to US strikes on Syria.
Can someone explain how Assad can be dealt with by the United Nations when Russia is exercising its veto.

Although the resolution was vetoed by Russia, the majority of 12 votes in favor, indicates that the entire civilized world wants a decisive answer to the crimes of Bashar al-Assad and his supporters, Russia, and the Iranian regime. It should be remembered that Russia has vetoed seven times the Security Council’s resolutions on the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
The Iranian regime, which is one of the key supporters of the repressive Syrian government, strongly opposed the Security Council meeting and Accused the West and the United States of setting the stage for obtaining the pretext for the war against Syria.

In her speech, Ms. Haley stated a part of the pain of Syrian people and children and demanded strong support from them against Syria and the Iranian regimes.
Almost exactly one year ago, I stood on the floor of the Security Council and held up pictures of dead Syrian children. After that day, I prayed that I would never have to do that again. I could; there are many truly gruesome pictures. Many of us have worked hard to ensure that one day, we would not have to see images of babies gassed to death in Syria.
But the day we prayed would never come has come again. Chemical weapons have once again been used on Syrian men, women, and children. And once again, the Security Council is meeting in response.
The US will respond to the Assad regime's alleged chemical attack against Syrian civilians, US Ambassador Nikki Haley told the United Nations.

This time, I’m not going to hold up pictures of victims. I could – there are many, and they are gruesome. Worse are the videos imprinted in our minds that no one should ever have to see.
“Who does this? Only a monster does this,” Haley said Monday. “Only a monster targets civilians and then ensures that there are no ambulances to transfer the wounded, no hospitals to save their lives, no doctors or medicine to ease their pain. I could hold up pictures of all of this killing and suffering for the council to see. But what would be the point? The monster who is responsible for these attacks has no conscience.” Even by seeing the images of the dead children will not shake.
Mrs. Haley emphasized the destructive role of the Iranian-Russian regime. I rightly admire Mrs. Haley’s position. Because the Iranian regime is one of the most criminal regimes in history and has spent billions in Syria to maintain Bashar al-Assad regime’s and has participated in all the crimes of Bashar al-Assad.
Ms. Haley added:
We must not overlook Russia and Iran’s roles in enabling the Assad regime’s murderous destruction. Russia and Iran have military advisers at Assad’s airfields and operations centers. Russian officials are on the ground helping direct the regime’s “starve and surrender” campaign, and Iranian allied forces do much of the dirty work.
Consequence: The failure of the Security Council to halt the war crime in Syria means increasing the killing of Syrian children by Assad and the Iranian regimes. This sends a signal to dictatorial and repressive rulers that the Security Council is feeble to stop war crimes, and these oppressive governments can use forbidden weapons against citizens, enjoying impunity.
And it means that the chemical weapons that have been used today in Syria can be reached to the terrorist groups supported by Syrian and the Iranian regimes, to hold the world to ransom.
