The UN Sec Council condemns chemical weapons use Syria

The UN Security Council Tuesday night condemned the continued use of chemical weapons in Syria. While abstaining from assigning culpability to any party – to avoid a Russian veto, the resolution reaffirmed the need for “a mechanism” to hold all those responsible accountable. It stressed that the use of chemical weapons is a serious violation of international law and it supported the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons’ investigations.
Russian officials meanwhile warned the US not to attack targets in Damascus in response to the chemical warfare conducted in the battle for East Ghouta.

    Craig come down to earth. Chemicals are being used on civilians in Syria. While Trump does not have the backbone to strike Syria once again for their continued use of these inhuman and banned weapons, Assad, Putin and Iran should be confronted for their war crimes.

    Today, the U.N. has no real power to do much militarily on its own. However, one day it will be empowered to be some kind of superpower having the final say.
