The American airstrikes on Syrian forces in Deir al-Zour on Saturday have produced a chain reaction throughout the diplomatic world, with Russia calling an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council regarding the attacks and causing a war of words between Russian and American ambassadors.
After Russia responded to the U.S. bombing by calling for an urgent meeting of the UNSC, the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. and notorious humanitarian bomber Samantha Power ranted and raved about the “embarrassment” that Russia was bringing on itself by daring to question the U.S. prerogative to bomb any and everywhere it wants.
“Why are we having this meeting tonight? It is a diversion from what is happening on the ground. If you don’t like what is happening on the ground then you distract. It is a magician’s trick… we encourage the Russian Federation to have emergency meetings with the Assad regime and deliver them to this deal,” Power said.
“What Russia is alleging tonight is that somehow the United States is undermining the fighting against ISIL. The Russian spokesperson even said that the United States might be complicit in this attack… This is not a game,” she exclaimed.
