New York City could be the next site of a chemical assassination attempt if world leaders fails to punish Russia for its alleged role in poising of a former spy in the United Kingdom, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley warned Wednesday.
If we don't take immediate concrete measures to address this now, Salisbury will not be the last place we see chemical weapons used, Haley told the United Nations Security Council. They could be used here in New York, or in cities of any country that sits on this Council. This is a defining moment.
Haley raised the specter of new attacks during an emergency council meeting, held at the request of British officials who have accused Russia of using a military-grade nerve agent to target a former military intelligence officer who committed treason. Russian diplomats have denied responsibility for the incident, but British investigators say they have identified the poison as a chemical weapon produced by the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
Time and time again, member-states say they oppose the use of chemical weapons under any circumstance, Haley said. Now one member stands accused of using chemical weapons on the sovereign soil of another member. The credibility of this council will not survive if we fail to hold Russia accountable.

Shouldn’t she be banning flags or making sandwiches?
But it won’t be Russia, its MUCH MUCH more likely to be Hezballah, PLO/PA/Abbas/Fatah, or Hamas.
No, it's not a good idea. There's a process for dealing with traitors: you capture them and bring them back for justice. Killing them (and their daughters) is wrong, no matter who does that.
It is not a matter of siding with Russia. Read the comments. We are, at least for me, saying that what Russia does with its citizens is no different than what we do with ours. No one else’s business. Why stir up a war, scare people, over something that is none of our business? And, if we do the same, seek out a kill a traitor, do you want Russia or others admonishing us, stirring up war talk?
i am certainly not siding with Russians. I am also not siding with so called Americans dragging more of our youth into a war with Russia or this hysterical nonsense.
She is an embarrassment.
Exactly; given the loss of security, and chaos in the former republics after the fall of the Soviet Union, it is at least a plausible hypothesis that Novichok and other agents, or their formulations, could have been smuggled out, or even stashed by internal non-state actors.
I didn’t either. However, this is what happens when somebody such a B. Obama gets into the WH while we see Putin publicly defending Russia and religion. Then the ridiculous chants of “it’s the Russians” and Mueller’s Russian “investigation.” There has been too much crying wolf, too much nonsense regarding Assad, etc.
Yes, American Troops will be martyred for Islam, but only Christians and Jews.
Holding Russia accountable doesnt have to mean getting into a shooting war. Anyone who actually thinks thats in the offing needs to have their head examined.
The Soviet Union has been dead over 25 years.
Because if they can use a nerve agent in England, they can use one here. And I don’t think they are too particular who they use it on.
A chemical attack on New York would not be an act of war?
Thats what Nikki is saying. Why is she saber rattling?
What evidence does she have that Russia is planning a chemical attack on New York City?
And this would be a bad thing?
Trade DC for NYC?
Is that on the table?
Shes talking about a targeted assasination attempt on American soil like the one in the U.K. Reading Comprehension 101.
Which is why a caution is warranted, not an outbreak of hysteria, or threat of war.
What did the global community do to punish ol’ FattyFattySillyHair when he killed his half brother with nerve agents?
And have we not done or do the same? If we catch them, bet they have diplomatic immunity, just like we might. Traitors are traitors. Key is that they do not injure American citizens. Best they not do it, nor get caught doing it in the US. Best we don’t get caught doing it either. What happens in England is not our problem and we should butt out.
Two weeks ago everybody loved her- now today she’s a RINO globalist.
