While it would be something surreal to see neo-liberal war hawk, UN Ambassador Samantha Power, actually visit Syria to see the suffering her policies created, we believe that…
- Power will never visit the Syria she has helped destroy. Maybe she will visit some “moderate”
ISISrebels for a hot tea, but never will she visit the real, war torn Syria.
- Samantha Power loves war, especially war based on promoting her neo-liberal values. Even if Power were to see firsthand what she has done to Syria, for her it is probably all worth it, as long as her value system is forced down Syria’s throat.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page that instead of rubbing shoulders with al-Nusra Front terrorists and the “moderate opposition” in Syria, Power should go to Syria and meet Syrian citizens who are still alive “despite the almost six-year-old bloody experiment being staged on them with Washington’s active participation.”
Zakharova promised to pay for Power’s trip to Syria.
“Have no fear. With me by your side, nobody will harm you. You will have things to remember and, besides, you will have a chance to learn what ‘shame’ means.”
Here is what Samantha Power said that elicited Zakharova’s response and invitation to Power:
“The Russian spokesperson, I believe, came out and thought somehow that we were complicit and that we were even trying to protect ISIL [Daesh]. Really? American citizens have been beheaded by this group. We are leading a 67-country coalition to destroy this group. ISIL has lost 40 percent of its territory. This is serious for us; it is not a game. And that spokesperson who suggested complicity really should be embarrassed.”
