House Legislation

WASHINGTON D.C. -- Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA-4th), Member of the International Relations and Armed Services Committees, is extremely encouraged by President Clinton's willingness to negotiate an end the U.S.-NATO bombing campaign in Yugoslavia.

Congresswoman McKinney has been calling for a cease fire since NATO's air campaign began. There now appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel.

"I have always said that we should trade in the smart bombs for smart negotiators," says Congresswoman McKinney. "Now is the time for affirmative action toward peace. The door of opportunity has opened, lets seize the moment. Approximately 700,000 Kosovars have been displaced by this so-called humanitarian effort, lets end the bombing campaign so they can return home and rebuild their lives. The Kosovars and Serb people have suffered enough."

"Bombing Belgrade and cutting off the city's electricity has been successful in disrupting the lives of innocent citizens, but it has done nothing the situation on the ground for the average Albanian Kosovar. Serb troops continue to wreak havoc on the lives of the Kosovars by land, while NATO wreaks havoc by air. President Milosevic is willing to talk peace, lets listen. Who could choose war over peace? Lets give peace a chance," concludes Congresswoman McKinney.
