Sen. Richard Black to ST: Saudis have lost the US-backed war in Yemen and just don’t know it

Virginia Senator Richard Black has called for ending America’s support for Saudi Arabia’s losing venture in Yemen, stressing that Yemen’s Houthi Tribesmen Deal Crippling Blow to Saudi Oil Production and Prestige.

Erdogan's Ottoman ambitions.. Support for terrorism in Syria and falsification of the generations’ memory

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Ottoman ambitions in Syria and Iraq are reflected in his regime's policies from ten years ago, and hardly a day goes by without new facts emerging to prove his intentions towards Syria and the fact that he supports the terrorist Takfiri groups, which are the military wing of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization.

With the beginning of the terrorist war on Syria, Erdogan began to talk about the establishment of a so-called "safe zone" that gathers the Muslim Brotherhood’s terrorists, trains and arms them to attack the Syrian state. In the past eight years, the Turkish border has turned into a transit corridor for arms and terrorists towards Syria.

Erdogan's dream was for the Muslim Brotherhood to take over power in Syria and Egypt so that he could pass his plot and implement his ambitions by seizing Idlib and areas in north Syria.

The aspirations of the Turkish regime are proved  in Erdogan's reintroduction of an old map in Turkish  school curriculum, which shows  Ottoman ambitions at the time in the neighboring countries of Syria, Iraq and Cyprus, where the map includes northern Syria from the coast passing north of Homs and to northern Iraq as well as the island of Cyprus. Parts of Cyprus were occupied in 1974 and are violations of Turkey to the international laws.

Cynthia McKinney to ST: Peace has a chance only with a peace leader in national security adviser position or no one at all in it

Former US congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has said that it might be better for the position of the national security adviser to remain vacant, hoping that President Donald Trump is about to begin to keep his campaign promises about the folly of the US fighting wars for Israel.

In a statement to the Syria times e-newspaper on the effect of the defenestration of John Bolton as President Trump's third national security adviser, McKinney said: "Given the President's poor staffing choices, it might be better for the position to remain vacant. Any appointment from the swamp will continue the same pro-Israel, warmongering, swamp policies."
