(Newser) – Sunday morning talk shows buzzed with Syria talk following US and allied attacks on chemical facilities in the war-torn nation—with Nikki Haley leading the charge for the administration, Politico reports. "If Assad doesn’t get it, it’s going to hurt," said the US ambassador to the United Nations on Fox News Sunday, threatening more missile strikes if Syrian President Bashar Assad attacks his people with chemical weapons. "If Assad continues to go forward there will be more, and it will hurt." Among other Sunday quotes:

  • More Russian sanctions: "Russia sanctions will be coming down" following the suspected Syria chemical attacks, Haley said on Face the Nation, per the Hill. "They will be going directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use."
