“I will tell you, that first of all: did a chemical weapons attack happen? Yes. The US has analysed; yes it has happened. The UK has analysed; yes it has happened. France has analysed; yes it has happened. Three separate analysis, all came back with the same thing. There is proof that this happened. But I will tell you is, as a mother of two children, as a wife of a combat veteran, I am unbelievably proud of how President Trump has looked at the information analysed, not let anyone rush him into this; because he has said from the beginning: we have to know that we are right; we have to know all the information; we have to know that there is proof; and we have to know that we are taking every precaution necessary should we take action.”

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Nikki Haley, Permanent Representative of the United States to the United Nations:
“We’ve had six resolutions that would really bring Assad to justice, call Syria out for chemical weapons, six resolutions, vetoed by Russia. So, you have a member who has used chemical weapons. You have a country, Russia, who has helped them cover up the use of chemical weapons, and we have a violation of international law. So what else are we supposed to do? And then, another chemical weapons attack happens.”

“You don’t rush decisions like this. If you rush decisions like this you make a mistake. What we are making sure is that we have all the information to know, if we do something, what will happen, how will it happen, and will it hurt anyone; and that something that American put a lot of thought into and it is also something that we have a moral obligation to; and we are going to follow through on all of that.”
