Russia: ‘US and allies are just neo-colonial hooligans’

After the military attack of the United States, France and Britain in Syria, Russia has in the UN Security council sharply uigehaald to the US and their allies. U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley responded that her country with a new chemical attack will again respond.

The Russian ambassador to the United Nations, Vasily Nebenzya, calling the attack during the spoedzitting of the UN Security council, which Russia had called for an aggressive act of America and its allies. The US made an already disastrous humanitarian situation in Syria even worse, said Nebenzya. The escalation that Washington will manage, destabilizes the whole Middle East.

The US and allies, ignore international law, according to the ambassador, who spoke of a neo-colonial action that is similar to the behaviour of the ‘hooligans’. The Security council was, according to Nebenzya also completely ignored, and his authority undermined.

Nebenzya said in addition that there is no evidence of the use of chemical weapons in Douma and wondered whether the U.S. is a once-prosperous country to the stone age wanted to terugbombarderen.

Haley: “US are combat-ready’

The American ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Nikki Haley, declared in turn that the United States is “locked and loaded” or combat ready, as the Syrian regime is a toxic gas used again.

The criticism of Russia that the Security council was passed, responded to Haley that the board failed is that they have chemical weapons use, calling them to account. That was, according to the UN ambassador is primarily the fault of Russia,which is six times its veto pronounced against resolutions that the use of chemical weapons aankaartten. That gave according to Haley the green light to Syria for its weapons program to continue and to use against citizens.

The air strikes that the US along with the United Kingdom and France have carried out, were justified as retaliation for the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, repeated Haley.
