Posted on 08/20/2010 7:53:54 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Sen. John Kerry, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Friday that there is a "very active" effort under way to reach a negotiated political settlement with the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Kerry (D-Mass.) acknowledged that "efforts" have begun after visiting Afghanistan and Pakistan this week, meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and other officials.
"I can report without being specific that there are efforts under way. They are serious and I completely agree with that fundamental premise and so does General [David] Petraeus and so does President Obama there is no military solution," he told NPR. "And there are very active efforts now to seek an appropriate kind of political settlement."

We’ll have peace in our time.
Another Obamanoid “fundemental transformation”. Kerry morphs from Hanoi Boi to Taliban Boy.
In other words, we will surrender.
Like in Vietnam, where the Dems then broke it and abandoned the South ?
Kerry would know all about that.
They are serious and I completely agree with that fundamental premise and so does General [David] Petraeus and so does President Obama there is no military solution,”
Kerry just delivered our surrender notice.
Happy now everyone.
Afgan people can cheer the Taliban will begin their rain of terror on the people any day now. Why they have already started the stoning deaths.
The Lefties must be getting a tingly leg at the thought of reinstaling a monster Gov. in Afganistan. What a sight. Osama Bin Ladin being cheer on his triumphant entry into Kabul.
Maybe Bill Clinton was right. Just blast their country from the air into smithereens, declare victory, and then fly home. No Americans killed, keeps them at 7th century forever. Well, that and islam.
I hate it when the monkeys run the zoo! Kerry should worry about ketchup flow, nothing more nothing less....
And, let me guess, the US will help fund a huge mosque near Ground Zero and near the White House?
John Kerry is a traitor
Dems did the same in Somalia under Bill the BJ. Now they will turn Afghanistan into another Somalia. Idiots!
I guess he is trying to relive the good old days of Vietnam that were seared into his memory.
and, fittingly, I’m flying to Munich next Saturday! Peace in our time, Senator Kerry. (sarcasm)
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if he knew how many thought him an idiot?
How many secret bank accounts will be filled by the money behind the Taliban and AQ before that settlement is reached?
Inquiring minds want to know.
And the Afghan women mourn again and tremble with fear.is this the womens rights the dems had in mind? Or are liberal women more equal than other women? Taliban and women are quite the mismatch.
He is such a total dumb A%$
And our weakness in Somalia was one of the several American weaknesses bin Laden cited in his fatwa justifying attacks on the US and American citizens
Getting to know liberals is becoming easier everyday- especially what outcomes to expect- but it's still vomit-inducing to think we must tolerate them as we do.
Shouldn't we, after two hundred plus years as a country be releaved of the duty of picking up after 'the children'? Or better yet, isn't it way past time that we should still be HAVING children!?
Pregnant with stupidity after two hundred years? This ain't right. Somebody removed the detour sign as a hoax. If Obama's river of debt rises any higher, I can guaran-dam-tee the bridge is out.
In case anoyone wonders where Kerry gets his marching orders... its interest coincides with those of Iran [recall John Kerry's election letter to Iran back in 2004] :
....So is he just a zealous Democratic Party supporter with deep pockets?
Not quite. This may be the part Goodman [Amy Goodman of the Marxist Democracy Now! network] was reluctant to talk about. Nemazee, you see, has a dark secret: hes a terrorist sympathizer.
Nemazee is a Board of Trustees member with the Asia Society, an organization sympathetic to the oppressive, terrorism-sponsoring Islamic fundamentalist regime of Iran. The Asia Society has gone on record as recommending that the United States declare an end to President Bushs war on terror and negotiate with Taliban members willing to separate from Al Qaeda.
He was a past board member of the American-Iranian Council, a U.S. lobbying group that has consistently supported lifting U.S. sanctions on Iran and accommodating the Tehran regime.
He is also a founding board member of the Iranian American Political Action Committee [IAPAC], which seeks to create friendly and lucrative business relationships with the Iranian theocracy ruling that country.
Nemazee, whose bail has been set at $25 million (secured by his $20 million New York City Apartment), faces a maximum prison term of 30 years.
Now that the Democratswho have been the major recipients of Nemazees largesseare running the show, it should be interesting to watch this saga play out. ------------- "Hassan Nemazee: Terrorist Sympathizer; Arrested Democratic Fundraisers Pro-Taliban, Pro-Iran Agenda," From David Horowitz NEWSREAL:2009 August 27, http://newsrealblog.com/2009/08/27/arrested-democratic-fundraisers-other-agenda/ 73 posted on Tuesday, September 22, 2009 12:06:06 PM by thouworm | To 72
It is true that there is no military solution, short of observation and containment.
I hate to say it, but these days the average Frenchman has more guts and wisdom than the Democrat political leadership in Washington.
No military solution? Obviously he wasn't in Vietnam as he claimed, America has incredible firepower that jon effen carry is too chicken $#!+ to use and a Pres__ent that wouldn't use it on his muslim brothers in theology. Political settlement: giving credence to killers. Typical of the priviledged class, our great country being sold down the river for a few pieces of silver. I absolutely cannot believe that the people that live in the cradle of liberty in the United States thinks this is what our Founding Fathers had in mind and continue to vote these types of traitorious SOB scum into office... insanity.
Clinton only did that to Christian countries... except when he was “wagging the dog”.
Selling out America!
And this from John Kerry who:
Wasn’t in Cambodia in Xmas 1969 despite claims he was
Who met secretly in support (with Tom Harkin, a marxist phoney Vietnam vet) with the Sandininstas in 1984 in Managua.
Who was a leader of the radical VVAW, led by another phoney Vietnam veteran Al Hubbard and taken over by the Maoists of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP).
Who hired perjurer Frank Varelli to work on his congressional staff.
Who hired Hanoi supporter and political genocide denier Gary Porter (re No. Vietnm in the 1950’s).
Who “left a man behind” on the Bay Hap River when he fled from a mine explosion and claimed “5,000 meters of Small Arms and Heavy Arms” enemy fire, but had no bullet-holes in his boat despite this 3 mile gauntlet run.
Was opposed for president by over 260 Swift Boat veterans.
Who had two Swifties falsely claim that they served under him when they were both in hospitals from wounds received earlier in action.
Need I go on?
These are the kind of monsters a Democrat will negotiate with.
Kerry is a friggin’ Idiot POS,,,
MY housemates SIL is in Kandhahar...
You will now see the defeat of America in Afghanistan, and a huge increase in the heroin trade soon.The Islamofascists win because of Obamafascists in power here.
The world will now enter trial by fire, thanks to the A$$hats we now have in office.It will become an exceedingly unfriendly place, eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth.
Thank you pretend president Obama, and all who voted for him.You have brought infamy on our nation, and catastrophe to the entire world. Millions will die horrible deaths as a result.
America now will devolve from its position of worldly pre-eminance, and history will say that the boomer generation failed the world and the people of our nation.Their defining characteristics? Spoiled selfish brats.The world
cannot be at peace due to the fact that the Woodstock generation has refused to think, and in its majority, has engaged in a generation of mental masturbation.Now into the twilight years of their lives, and into the lives of their children, will come tremendous suffering, duly earned by themselves.
Kerry is among one of a group of the most salient idiots ever to grace the stage of our body politic.He conspires yet again to create the third Vietnam of his career of abject dilusion and travesty.
The orcs of Mordor now invest the shire.And a Sauron occupies the formerly pristine seat of our nation.Only the strongest and most prescient among us will survive the rigors now forced upon us.Thats the cold truth which we now must face.Only a revolution here at home can change that.
WHAT? They just murdered ten aide workers because they were “CHRISTIAN.” Kerry is an ostrich
