Earlier today I wrote, in a blurb for FP News about the GB-Russia Row: “The US will side with Britain. How that affects US-Russian relations is yet to be seen.” Can’t link to it just yet as its scheduled for tomorrow morning, 6 AM I think. (Cause I’m always a day ahead!) Anyway, I was right.

Nutty Nikki Haley jumps to conclusions about foreign affairs that really don’t concern us faster than she tears down a Confederate flag.

New York City could be the next site of a chemical assassination attempt if world leaders fail 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.”

Yes. Immediate concrete measures – right up against that Russian veto. A defining moment, defining the meddling stupidity of the neocons.

Strange, but Haley failed to produce any evidence whatsoever of Russian involvement in the London deaths. I suppose allegations are sufficient. And I would suppose someone who’s boss has been accused of Russia pandering, without any proof, would think twice before jumping on the same sort of bandwagon. I would suppose that she so thinks; I won’t knowing that she doesn’t.

Mr. President, while you’re firing people!
