U.S. Ambassador To The UN: Regime Change In Syria Is A Trump Administration Priority

Reuters: Trump's U.N. envoy says ouster of al-Assad is a priority of U.S.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in an interview that she sees regime change in Syria as one of the Trump administration's priorities in the country wracked by civil war.

Defeating Islamic State, pushing Iranian influence out of Syria, and the ouster of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad are priorities for Washington, Haley said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” which will air in full on Sunday.

"We don’t see a peaceful Syria with Assad in there," Haley said.

The comments represented a departure from what Haley had said before the United States hit a Syrian air base with 59 Tomahawk missiles on Thursday in retaliation for what it said was a chemical weapons attack by Assad's forces on Syrian civilians.

President Donald Trump ordered the missile strike after watching television images of infants suffering from chemical weapons injuries.

The game is up. Putin gave his ok. Assad will hopefully be gone very soon. I'll toast to that. Hope they get rid of his wife too,who loves to go on a shopping spree while their country is experiencing the biggest plight and misery the world has witnessed in the last couple of decades at least.

Dear anon

How in god's name do you come to believe that Putin gave his ok? did Putin skype or email you? Russia has been given a naval base by Syria. Do they plan to sail away from that?
