Former U.S. Congresswoman to ST: regional disunity allows the US policy of destruction

Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has underscored that the Israel-first forces inside the U.S. will do everything to maintain U.S. troops in Syria or else Israel and Rothschild, Cheney, Richardson, and others of Genie Energy will have to forgo the profits from Israel's theft of the Golan.

She has told the Syria Times e-newspaper that US President Donald Trump has been overruled by the Swamp Monsters he has appointed to his White House.

“This is a crisis of his own making for which I have little political sympathy.  However, with each victory of the Israel-First US Deep State, it will be harder for President Trump to recover if he is truly interested in bringing U.S. troops home from Syria, Afghanistan, and withdrawing from NATO.  These are all very positive pronouncements from the president, but he has not been able to accomplish a single one of them,” the US politician added.

She made it clear that the president has voluntarily surrounded himself with Deep State agents who do not share his pronounced values and so he is at war in the very places that should be bulwarks of the policies Trump has articulated as aspirations.

In response to a question about whether US-led coalition fights against ISIS or supports it, McKinney said: “ I suppose this is a joke question because you and everyone else (except the poor blokes dying for Al Qaeda/ISIS/etc. in the name of Islam) know that a false Islam and Muslims have become cannon fodder for the US in its effort to ensure Israeli hegemony in the region by way of regime change wars, balkanization, sanctions, hot war, and cold war.”

She believes that regional disunity allows the US policy of destruction of whole countries to prevail, pointing out that the U.S. should never have been in Syria, Libya, either.

“In fact, at one Arab League meeting, Muammar Qaddafi predicted this for the region as long as there was no unity and cooperation within the organization in the face of divide and rule tactics to conquer the states, serially, for Israel by the U.S,” said McKinney, who wrote a book entitled “The Illegal War on Libya”.

The US politician posed the following question: “How long does one turn the other cheek to and absorb the blows from one who wishes to totally destroy you?

She concluded by saying: “ You all should organize another delegation to come to Syria.”

Cynthia McKinney Bio

Cynthia McKinney is an international peace and human rights activist, noted for her inconvenient truth-telling about the U.S. war machine. She was held for seven days in an Israeli prison after attempting to enter Gaza by sea and traveled to Libya during U.S. bombing and witnessed the crimes against humanity committed against that country's people. In addition to Libya, she has traveled to Cuba, Syria, Russia, Iran, Pakistan, and as she puts it: “Wherever U.S. Bombs are dropping or U.S. sanctions are biting.” She is the author or editor of three Clarity Press books: she has written one book Ain't Nothing Like Freedom and edited The Illegal War On Libya and the 2018 book, How the U.S. Creates Sh*thole Countries.

In 1992, McKinney won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. She was the first African-American woman from Georgia in the U.S. Congress. She was the first Member of Congress to demand an investigation of the events of 9/11/2001. McKinney was criticized and as a result, she was defeated in 2002; however, she ran again and was re-elected in 2004.

In December 2008, Cynthia made international headlines when her boat was rammed by the Israeli military as she was attempting to deliver medical supplies to Gaza. In 2009, Cynthia attempted to reach Gaza again, this time armed with crayons, coloring books, and school supplies. Her boat was overtaken in international waters by the Israeli military and she was kidnapped to Israel where she spent 7 days in an Ramleh Prison. Finally, Cynthia entered Gaza by land in July 2009 with George Galloway's Viva Palestina USA.

She has over 100,000 followers on FaceBook and more than 30,000 followers on Twitter who live in countries all over the world—from Argentina to Zimbabwe, according to Tweetsmap as of January 2019.
