Posted on 03/14/2014 7:26:00 PM PDT by John Semmens
US Secretary of State John Kerry chastised Russian President Vladimir Putin for his countrys unwarranted interference in the internal affairs of Ukraine and warned that serious repercussions will be undertaken.
National sovereignty is a principle that you either respect or dont, Kerry lectured Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in high level talks this past week. Engaging in displays of military strength or actual incursions into a foreign country in order to influence or intimidate its government is not acceptable.
Lavrov questioned Kerrys sincerity and historical knowledge by alluding to US intervention in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya in recent years and the American Civil War. Hypocrisy is not a coherent policy, the Russian Foreign Minister countered. Unless Mr. Kerry is ready to acknowledge his own countrys violations of the sovereignty of other states and offer to make amends why should we take his current objections seriously?
Kerry gave the Russians until Monday to reverse course or face the consequences. Kerry declined to elaborate on what the consequences might entail on the grounds that retaining the element of surprise is crucial to the success of any armed intervention.
Not content to wait for decisive action from the Obama Administration, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) is reportedly on his way to Ukraine to serve as a human shield against any further Russian incursions. All we really need is for people of stature to face down these cowardly invaders. If FDR or Churchill had placed themselves in front of the German Army on the Polish border in 1939 Hitler would never have dared attack.
In related news, Kerry called Israels insistence that it be recognized as a Jewish state a mistake. Globally, there are only 12 million Jews compared to over a billion Muslims, Kerry observed. Allowing such a tiny minority to block the majoritys desire to assert a different philosophy of governance for the region now known as Israel would be profoundly undemocratic. Justice requires that the lesser number yield to the greater number. My Government cannot acquiesce in a protocol that would permit a minority to rule over a majority.

Come on, John! You don’t need to go all Hans Blix on Vlad!
Sure sounds like the sort of stuff Lurch would come up with...(the line grows ever thinner!)
The reset button now activates the ICBMs?
John Kerry's gonna put down a red line.
I guess Kerry’s going to hit Lavrov or Putin with his “Purple Hearts” and say, “See, I’m one tough hombre”.
Maybe he’s hoping that they will die of laughter.
What a damned stupid putz and traitor. a bottle of Ketchup has more intelligence than he has.
Somebody put a dress on Kerry and send him to Cambodia on a slow boat. Please!!
Vlad's security people probably came running into the room to see what all the commotion was about when he read that.
Had to pick him up off the floor and set him back on his chair - probably called medical.
Hoping to start a war to stimulate the economy (one that we will lose badly since 0 gayified it). Yep that’s how bad 0 has botched the economy.
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, oh my side hurts, hahahahahahaha!!!!!
With a Russian listening ship in Cuba, to boot.
There are two colors of lines that represent Kerry:
1. Red - as in his support of the communists in Vietnam and Nicaragua
2. Yellow - as in his behavior on the Bay Hap River and in his general political conduct in the face of the enemy (Iran, Sandinistas, FLMN of El Salvador, Castro, Chavez, Morales, Correa, little “Kims” of No. Korea, and the Taliban).
They are known as a Kerry “rainbow”.
John, I literally laughed so hard here that I couldn't breathe. Are you trying to kill me?
How about a black line for treason at Winter Soldier and Paris?
“Kerry Issues Ultimatum to Russians”
It could be much worse for the ukrainians. It could be Muslims taking over their country for example.
Stop interfering or I shall taunt you a second time!

US Secretary of State John Kerry chastised Mexico President Vladimacho Putinez for his countrys unwarranted interference in the internal affairs of the USA and warned that serious repercussions will be undertaken.
National sovereignty is a principle that you either respect or dont, Kerry lectured Mexican Foreign Minister Sergeyleo Lavrovetvez in high level talks this past week. Engaging in displays of illegal cross-border emigration or condoning and actual incursions into a foreign country as USA in order to influence or intimidate its government is not acceptable.
Such serious repercussions include boycotting of all Taco Bell restaurants and banning of all tequila imports to the USA.
Kerry declined to elaborate on what the consequences might entail on the grounds that retaining the element of surprise is crucial...
Kerry: You’d better read it to them Mr President.
Obama: Er.... Nobody...um....
Obama: Expects... Nobody expects the...um...the Obama...um...
Obama: I know, I know! Nobody expects the Obama consequences. In fact, those who do expect -
Kerry: Our chief weapons are...
Obama: Our chief weapons are...um...er...
Obama: Surprise and —
Kerry: Okay, stop. Stop. Stop there - stop there. Stop. Phew! Ah! ... our chief weapons are surprise...blah blah blah.
Putin is planning for East Ukraine to disappear
And this time he really means it.
He’s putting Putin on double secret probation.
You go, John. Dare him to make you call your bluff.
serious repercussions will be undertaken.
Another red line in the sand?
John Cleese has signed to play the title role in “John Kerry - A triumphant life”
Or what?? He’d marry the richest woman in Russia???
When I look at (actual) news quotes from Mister Obama, Kerry and the like, they almost seem to have come from Mad Magazine.
It must be difficult to satirize semi-believable, semi-true political statements as the truth could, indeed, be stranger than the satire.
Engaging in displays of military strength or actual incursions into a foreign country in order to influence or intimidate its government is not acceptable.
Isn’t that what we’re doing?
so what’s he going to do, send the FBI to arrest Putin??
Good one John. Thanks for the ping.
THESE PEOPLE need some Statesman training and a class on real diplomacy. Unbelievable juvenile stuff, and dangerous.
Since Kerry has had two very wealthy wives, I’m beginning to wonder what “assets” he has the rest of us can’t see. (wink wink)
On this one Kerry really showed his low and backward level of reasoning. With the Muslims already in the USA his remarks can make an argument that the USA should not be a Nation because there are so many more Muslims in the world. Just perhaps this is what Obama is reaching to accomplish.
Priceless. Could be the old fool may have finally found a useful purpose. LOL
Thanks again for the ping.
And we keep posting this kind of crap why?
LOL @ McCain being a human shield.
Until I read your post I couldn’t figure out their strategy either, but it is brilliant. They expect the Russians to laugh themselves to death. How’s that working out so far?
Puttie is kicking both your asses all over the place.
Youse guys aren’t even in the same game.
I don't think that last part is satire. I think that's Kerry's actual policy, just stated differently. I think he, and 0bama really are that GD stupid.
Great work, as always.
Kind of like a 6 year old girl threatening Rambo.
Perhaps because some of us enjoy it.
Cross this red line, the one behind this yellow line and I will hit you with a ketsup bottle, I swear!
lybia, egypt, Vietnam, Bosnia, etc. (iraq doesn’t count: its leader was, first, attacking another country and, the second time, sabre rattling directly against us at the wrong time).
Pot, meet kettle.
