U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley warned the U.N. Security Council on Monday that the U.S. is willing to act if the body fails to carry out military action against the Syrian regime that's bombing civilians and continues to flout a U.N. resolution.

“We warn any nation determined to impose its will through chemical attacks and inhuman suffering, but most especially the outlaw Syrian regime, the United States remains prepared to act if we must. It is not a path we prefer. But it is a path we have demonstrated we will take, and we are prepared to take again.”
