Iran and Hezbollah Intend to Remain in Syria, US Ambassador Nikki Haley Warns UN Security Council

The US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, eviscerated Iran’s rulers before the Security Council on Wednesday as the global body debated the ongoing civil war in Syria.

Haley described President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Damascus as “a front for Iran, Hezbollah, and their allies to advance the irresponsible and dangerous agenda for the Middle East.”

“On every front of this conflict, we find fighters imported by Iran from Lebanon, Iraq, and Afghanistan,” Haley told the Security Council. “When we see the Assad regime starving civilians in eastern Ghouta or pummeling schools and hospitals in Idlib, we see advisers from Iran and Hezbollah helping direct those atrocities.”

Haley also criticized Russia for failing to “guarantee adherence to… de-escalation zones to help the political process.” She continued: “But then again, Russia was also supposed to guarantee that all chemical weapons would be removed from Syria. Instead, we see the Assad regime continue to bomb, starve, and yes, gas civilians.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
