Whereas the leaders of France and the UK face questions in their respective parliaments over the use of military force against the Assad regime in Syria (and indirectly against its backer Russia), the US didn’t mince its words when it comes to making the Middle Eastern dictator understand what will happen should he risk another chemical attack on his own people.

Ms Nikki Haley, who has been facing off against the Russians in the UN for the past few weeks, brought out one of her strongest remarks today, warning that: “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.”

<blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The United States is deeply grateful to the United Kingdom and France for their part in the coalition to defend the prohibition on chemical weapons. Last night, our great friends and indispensable allies shouldered a burden that benefits all of us. -<a href="https://twitter.com/USUN?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@USUN</a> Ambassador Nikki Haley <a href="https://t.co/mAk99XW1Z2">pic.twitter.com/mAk99XW1Z2</a></p>&mdash; Department of State (@StateDept) <a href="https://twitter.com/StateDept/status/985194196263780352?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 14, 2018</a></blockquote>

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

The quote was a direct reference to the former Democratic US President Barack Obama who had back in 2012 stated that the use of chemical weapons would be considered a ‘red line’ for his administration but didn’t follow through on his words when Syrian President Bashar Al Assad used chemical weapons against the rebels at the outbreak of the now 6-year civil war in his country.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Moments ago, <a href="https://twitter.com/nikkihaley?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@nikkihaley</a> said that President <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@realDonaldTrump</a> has assured her the U.S. is &quot;locked and loaded&quot; if Assad uses poisonous gas again. <a href="https://t.co/dNkJVWVbCG">https://t.co/dNkJVWVbCG</a> <a href="https://t.co/zl3ISFblGW">pic.twitter.com/zl3ISFblGW</a></p>&mdash; Fox News (@FoxNews) <a href="https://twitter.com/FoxNews/status/985188430983217152?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 14, 2018</a></blockquote>

Ms. Haley, who often times takes a tougher stance than the White House whilst speaking at the UN, told Russian Ambassador Mr. Vasily Nebenzya that: “Last night we successfully hit the heart of Syria’s chemical weapon enterprise.”

“And because of these actions, we are confident we have crippled Syria’s chemical weapon program.”

“We are prepared to sustain this pressure if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will.”

Every single warmonger and supporter of the Syria strike should be forced to stand at the front lines of the war they're causing. Let's see how long those spoiled and pampered retards would last if they actually had to take responsibility for their words and actions.
