Kerry: you just don't invate another country on phony pretext


Recommended Posts

Secretary of State John Kerry made the round of Sunday shows this morning to condemn Russia’s “incredible act of aggression” in Ukraine, warning Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that the country faces harsh economic sanctions from the international community.

“It is really a stunning, willful choice by President Putin to invade another country,” Kerry said on Face the Nation.

But in the seriousness of the situation, the irony of Kerry’s next comments may have gone missed. ”You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext,” he said.

He went on to repeat the assertion on Meet the Press, keeping a straight face as he told host David Gregory: ”You just don’t invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests.”

I see the dishonest spin from the Obama haters now.

 

Obama has not and will not launch an invasion of any country. He was opposed to the Bush/Cheney invasion of Iraq. He has been for killing Muslim terrorists and he's killed a lot of them. So much for Obama being a Muslim.

Didn't Obama want to invade Syria, and invaded Libya's air space?

putin didn't really "invade" anywhere. the part of the country his military is in wants him there. but as far as obama and kerry? yeah.

i guess drone attacking villages and killing women and children is "ok"...but the russian military being invited into crimeria is "evil".

Not true. Obama wanted to launch an attack on Syria. Come on, you should know that. He also invaded Libya airspace to kill Kadaffi. You should know that also. As Lews said, he also authorizes drone strikes...like everywhere.

So Kerry is like most liberals. They live in a world of unicorns, rainbows and lollipops.

 

“It is really a stunning, willful choice by President Putin to invade another country,”

 

Stunning myass. You idiot leftists (redundant) are very poor judges of human nature and character.

Audie Murphy Kerry didn't even know if he voted for a war or not. I voted for it before i voted against it. I am glad the war hero is taking time out from his environmental ranting to at least speak on foreign policy. A constituent from mass. went to Kerry's office once. His medals were on the wall. The citizen asked him about the medals and the wall. Kerry said he threw medals of someone else over the wall.

Hey there liar, if Bush was doing it you CONS would call him a hero. How many terrorist leaders did you butt buddy Bush kill?

 

Those drone attacks have killed a lot of Muslim terrorist leaders. So much for your lies that Obama is a Muslim and supports alqeda.

 

This partial list of senior terrorists killed during the Obama presidency is fairly extensive.

 

There’s Osama bin Laden, of course, killed in May.

 

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader Anwar al-Awlaki .

 

Earlier this month officials confirmed that al Qaeda’s chief of Pakistan operations, Abu Hafs al-Shahri, was killed in Waziristan, Pakistan.

 

In August, ‘Atiyah ‘Abd al-Rahman, the deputy leader of al Qaeda was killed.

 

In June, one of the group’s most dangerous commanders, Ilyas Kashmiri, was killed in Pakistan. In Yemen that same month, AQAP senior operatives Ammar al-Wa’ili, Abu Ali al-Harithi, and Ali Saleh Farhan were killed. In Somalia, Al-Qa’ida in East Africa (AQEA) senior leader Harun Fazul was killed.

 

Administration officials also herald the recent U.S./Pakistani joint arrest of Younis al-Mauritani in Quetta.

 

Going back to August 2009, Tehrik e-Taliban Pakistan leader Baitullah Mahsud was killed in Pakistan.

 

In September of that month, Jemayah Islamiya operational planner Noordin Muhammad Top was killed in Indonesia, and AQEA planner Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan was killed in Somalia.

 

Then in December 2009 in Pakistan, al Qaeda operational commanders Saleh al-Somali and ‘Abdallah Sa’id were killed.

 

In February 2010, in Pakistan, Taliban deputy and military commander Abdul Ghani Beradar was captured; Haqqani network commander Muhammad Haqqani was killed; and Lashkar-e Jhangvi leader Qari Zafar was killed.

 

In March 2010, al Qaeda operative Hussein al-Yemeni was killed in Pakistan, while senior Jemayah Islamiya operative Dulmatin - accused of being the mastermind behind the 2002 Bali bombings – was killed during a raid in Indonesia.

 

In April 2010, al Qaeda in Iraq leaders Abu Ayyub al-Masri and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi were killed.

 

In May, al Qaeda’s number three commander, Sheik Saeed al-Masri was killed.

 

In June 2010 in Pakistan, al Qaeda commander Hamza al-Jawfi was killed.

 

Remember when Rudy Giuliani warned that electing Barack Obama would mean that the U.S. played defense, not offense, against the terrorists?

 

If this is defense, what does offense look like?

BTW: Zaro...would you know, did Kerry ever get back his medals that he threw over the White House fence ?

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

It's funny, Romney called Russia a geoeconimic foe and you liberals went nuts over that. Guess he was right.

never voted for bush. how's your warmonger obama doing in the polls, though? so what are you saying, anyway?

that since bush stepped into foreign affairs with military presence that obama can, too? does this mean you were a fan

of the bush wars? or is this just you being the hypocrite that you're pretending i am?

Typical stupid Kerry statement. "You don't?"

 

Here's a reality check. Russia just did.

Clinton left Bush just about zero intelligence about Al Qaeda, so he had to start from scratch.

 

And Obama was able to kill terrorist leaders largely because Bush waterboarded three top terrorist planners and subjected others to harsh interrogations.

That Obama opposed, so had it been left to him, we'd still have very little intelligence about Al Qaeda, and Obama's record would stink.

 

Say, has he closed down Gitmo yet? :D

Sec of Straightjacket Kerry is just beside himself. His idols the commies are going back to the 18th century. He will personally show them. He will register his boat back in little Rhody. Putin is so far ahead of these laymen he may move his whole navy to cuba.

At the debates, Obama had mocked Romney’s criticism of his drastic military cuts by accusing him of living in a 19th century “horses and bayonets” world and sneered at Romney’s statement that Russia was our leading geopolitical foe by asserting, “You don’t call Russia our No. 1 enemy… unless you’re still stuck in a Cold War mind warp.”

 

When Sarah Palin predicted back in 2008 that the invasion of Georgia would lead to the invasion of Ukraine, Saturday Night Live brought in Tina Fey to put on a little skit about seeing Russia from her house and everyone had a good laugh at the bumpkin who didn’t realize that the Cold War was over.

 

Last summer, Obama told Jay Leno, “There have been times where they slip back into Cold War thinking and a Cold War mentality. What I continually say to them and to President Putin, ‘That’s the past. We’ve got to think about the future.’”

 

Leno is gone and Putin is in the Ukraine and Obama is baffled to realize that when your enemies are stuck in the Cold War mentality, you either get your Cold War mind warp on or give up and go home.

This is like a chess game where a grand master is playing a jackass. Oblameo was never a fan of foreign policy. He thought his apology tour and the reset button would take care of everything. Oblameos world is wealth redistribution and give away programs. Foreign policy is way too far ahead for him. Appointing Kerry was a stroke of genius. Oblameo knows only too well what a fraud Kerry is. They were in the senate together. Two amatures trying to keep up with a professional KGB man. No contest.

Who cares. No one wants a war with Russia. Oblameo's foreign policy with Russia as with his complete foreign policy is a joke. The rest of the world knows it. We are being laughed at. That is what oblameo wanted in the first place. He has succeeded.
