At the U.N.

Nikki Haley warns the U.N. that America is 'prepared to do more' in Syria

Speaking at the United Nations on Friday, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley once again slammed Russia for allowing the Syrian government to execute a chemical weapon attack in the country earlier this week and added that in addition to the retaliatory U.S. strike on Thursday, America is "prepared to do more."

"Russia is supposed to be a guarantor of the removal of chemical weapons in Syria," Haley said. "Think about that."

She suggested that Russia either knowingly allowed chemical weapons to remain in Syria, that Russia was incompetent in removing the chemical weapons, or that the Russians are being played for fools by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

"The United States took a very measured step last night," Haley concluded. "We are prepared to do more. But we hope that will not be necessary." Jeva Lange
