Posted on 02/27/2018 2:04:06 PM PST by yoe
The US threatened unilateral action against Iran after Russia vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on Tehrans failure to stop its weapons from reaching Houthi rebels in Yemen.
"If Russia is going to continue to cover for Iran then the US and our partners need to take action on our own, said US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Monday.
If were not going to get action on the council then we have to take our actions.
Ms Haley did not specify what kind of action could be taken.
Russia on Monday vetoed the resolution that would have expressed concern over Irans failure to block supplies of missile to the Houthis and called for additional measures.
It marks the second time in recent days that the Russian ambassador has used his position to shield a regional ally in the Middle East.

All along the road to Ezekiel 38 ping
Nikki Haley is a brainless puppet of neocon warmongers.
Trump ran for president saying we’d blown too much money on Mideast wars, it’s time to focus on America. Bimbo Nikki Haley didn’t get the memo
I wish I could “Like” that post 100 times.
She’s doing what Trump wants her to do.
Are these the ones firing missiles at our navy ships?
She showed during the frenzy to remove Confederate flags and statues that she has no understanding of US culture, historical underpinnings or national pride. Without her the history-destroying maniacs might have been held at bay. Perhaps President Trump thought she'd be harmless at the UN? Whatever happened, he certainly has not followed through on his campaign promises to disentangle from other country's affairs. He really bought into it in Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, and Kiev, among other situations.
I can't decide if Haley is stupid, poorly educated in US history and cultural underpinnings, or evil. I'd worry about getting in a war with Iran. They have too many potential allies who know how to fight back. And PS: Has an Iranian EVER committed a terrorist attack on US soil?
“She’s doing what Trump wants her to do”
I wouldn’t assume that. There are a lot of people in the Trump administration who work to undermine his message, his iterests, agenda and the platform he ran on. He had to call out Gen Mcmannis just last week
Why US vital interest is served by being involved in this war? We’re taking Saudi Arabia’s side, by the way. You ok with the Saudis, the folks who dress women in burkas and supplied almost all the 911 murderers?
Meaning we'll do the Saudi’s bidding. Again.
If the Trump administration wants to stop the Houthi rebels in Yemen, he should just send the Broward County sheriff’s department over there to fight for them.
My sense is that President Trump will be able to get to the point, very soon, where “everyone is saying ‘peace and security’, and then sudden destruction will come upon them.”
I’m afraid he’s falling for that lie. I think he’s unaware of the consequences. I certainly hope it doesn’t happen under his watch. It IS going to happen, of course.
Still, I believe the Man of Sin arises from Europe to confirm the “peace” covenant. So it may be quite completely out of the hands of the USA to make it happen.
Here's an idea...tell the Saudis to stop killing civilians in Yemen, or better yet put an end their stupid of war of conquest there.
As Q would say: “Expand your thinking!” Donald Trump, the (Isaiah) 45th President of the United States of America, is YHWH’s anointed “Cyrus” for this age. He knows that he is anointed, and is playing the part YHWH has given him. We are in the last days, the days when hearts are hardened and fates are sealed. Maranatha!
I’m pretty sure Trump made a defense alliance with SA, US and Israel. We sold SA a bunch of weapons. Israel is our ally and needs more allies.
It could be that the Palestinians reject Trump’s peace plan and instead accept the seven year peace plan from the anti-Christ. Of course, we are to be taken up before the anti-Christ is revealed. Maranatha. Luke 21:28.
I’m pretty sure Saudis fund Al Quada. We don’t need to spend US tax dollars to support terrorist-sponsoring states
