BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:35 a.m.) – The United States (U.S.) is no longer actively seeking to remove Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad from power, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (U.N.) Nikki Haley told a group of reporters on Thursday.

“You pick and choose your battles and when we’re looking at this, it’s about changing up priorities and our priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out,” U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley stated, as reported by the Reuters News Agency.

“Do we think he’s a hindrance? Yes. Are we going to sit there and focus on getting him out? No,” she said. “What we are going to focus on is putting the pressure in there so that we can start to make a change in Syria.”

“We can’t necessarily focus on Assad the way that the previous administration did,” said Haley, a former governor of South Carolina.

“Our priority is to really look at how do we get things done, who do we need to work with to really make a difference for the people in Syria,” Haley added.

How about GTFO of Syria? That should help you save money. Not to mention if Trump wants to be friends with Russia, he’s gonna have to bend for them in cases like this.

Es falso lo que dice, ahora que los militantes de Al-qaeda están demostrando poder de acumulación de mas hombres, EE.UU. puede usar a estos mercenarios para sus fines y Turquía tampoco se queda atrás, sigue proporcionando armas y hombres a través de la frontera con Idlib.

Aun cuando estas muy en lo correcto en tu comentario, no pude resistir contestar con un sonoro ”Amen” a las palabras de esa mujer embajadora. Ojala ella estuviera en lo cierto.
Mas bien todos sabemos que la diplomacia es el arte de mentir y engañar con estilo siendo lo mas discreto y astuto posible.
