Nikki Haley Stares Down Russian Ambassador and Asks a Question That Makes UN Go Silent

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley on Wednesday confronted Russia directly in an impassioned address to the United Nations following a reported chemical attack in Syria on Tuesday.

Haley gave a horrific and vivid account of the reported chemical attack, holding up photos of child victims for the U.N. Security Council to see.

“Men, women, the elderly, and children gasping for their very last breath,” she said. “And as first responders, doctors, and nurses rushed to help the victims, a second round of bombs rained down. They died in the same slow, horrendous manner as the civilians they were trying to save.”

She then stared down the Russian ambassador and said: “How many more children have to die before Russia cares?”

Seconds of silence followed.

“The United States sees yesterday’s attack as a disgrace at the highest level and assurance that humanity means nothing to the Syrian government,” Haley added.

The death toll of the chemical attack climbed over 100 on Wednesday, according to The New York Times.
