USA recklessness in Syria

However, Syria has forced us to take action by its use of chemical weapons.

"We'll see how smart he is", Haley said.

Among the contentious proposals, the draft resolution would establish an independent investigation of allegations of chemical attacks in Syria with the aim of identifying the perpetrators. He continued by saying that the USA and its allies have demonstrated a blatant disregard for worldwide law.

The three allies used ships, a submarine and warplanes to launch a barrage of 105 guided missiles towards three chemical weapons facilities in Syria, officials said, including a research center on the outskirts of Damascus.

Addressing the council, USA ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the United States was confident that the military strikes had crippled Syria's chemical weapons program.

"We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said.

"It's time for Washington to learn that the worldwide code of behavior regarding the use of force is regulated by the United Nations Charter", Mr. Nebenzia said.

The US, France, and the United Kingdom carried out Friday's joint operation in response to a devastating chemical weapons attack in the rebel-controlled Damascus suburb of Douma, which killed dozens of people earlier this month.

"I have repeatedly expressed my deep disappointment that the Security Council failed to agree on a dedicated mechanism for effective accountability for the use of chemical weapons in Syria", he added.

A Syrian military statement said in all, 110 missiles were fired by the U.S., Britain and France and that a lot of them were shot down or derailed.

Assad didn't comment on calls by the US State Department to declare alleged Syrian stockpiles of chemical weapons during the meeting.

Haley has been one of the strongest voices accusing Russian Federation of enabling the Syrian government in its use of chemical weapons in the civil war that is now in its seventh year.

On Fox News, Haley also said the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria before three goals have been accomplished: defeating ISIL militants, ensuring chemical weapons will not be used and maintaining the ability to watch Iran.

After the vote, Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the meeting confirmed that the USA and its allies "continue to put worldwide politics and diplomacy in the realm of myth-making - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington". Eight countries voted against and three abstained.

A Russian lawmaker, who met the Syrian president in the wake of the recent attack, dismisses media reports claiming that Bashar Assad fled to Iran after the airstrikes on Damascus.

She also acknowledged Sunday that relations between the USA and Russian Federation, an Assad supporter, are "very strained".
