Russian foreign minister won’t return Kerry’s call
Foreign Policy ^ | 2/13/2013 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 02/13/2013 1:44:44 PM PST by xtinct

Secretary of State John Kerry called all the foreign ministers of countries that deal with North Korea following Monday's nuclear test and all but one of them picked up the phone -- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Kerry made his first remarks about the new nuclear test, which the North Koreans warned the State Department about in advance.

"With respect to the DPRK, President Obama made it crystal clear last night and previously in all comments, as have other countries, that North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile program are a threat now to the United States of America, because of what they are pursuing specifically, as well as to global security and peace," Kerry said.

Heck, most of us wouldn’t return that idiot’s call.

By the way, did you know that he served (ran) in Viet Nam?

We’re so insignificant in the world right now, thanks to the Kenyan, the person who answered the phone probabably asked “Who is this?”

You’d think he’d have all kinds of friends there, from his Paris Peace Talk days, his coddling the Sandinista National Liberation Front to palling around with Jane Fonda and Teddy Kennedy. Wasn’t President Putin a KGB agent?

Maybe that's why the call was refused. Didn't want to disclose the relationship. Old habits die hard and all that.

Must be he left a voice mail saying “do you know who I am?” That always worked for him in Boston.

He probably called at 3 PM our time, about midnight in Russia and the guy didn’t feel like getting out of bed to talk to old Horseface.

Kerry’s record speaks volumes about him and as the ‘man’ said, Obama’s last two appointments are second rate....Kerry commands no respect even apparently in the camp of Russian_______fill in the blank. His lies before the United States Congress should have put him out of government for good....sadly it did not.

Even KGB agents didn’t much care for traitors to their own countries...especially the US. They used them, but they didn’t like them.

He's a laughing stock in Vietnam. During the 2004 elections some pro-American friends who live in Saigon told me that everybody there laughs at him and know he ran way from Vietnam back during the war. They were rooting for a Bush second term.

Russians may not admit it overtly, but they liked Reagan a lot, and they certainly respected him.

Russians have a very low tolerance for idiots.

Anyway—they are too busy plotting new criminal activities to waste their time with a useless clown like Kerry.

Only slightly better than

if Obama called and they won't answer.

Obama (vindictive as he is) might, just might, do something all of us will regret.

The only skill I see in Kerry is the ability to sequentially hook up with rich women so he can leech off of them.

Parasitic marriage abilities do little to gain the respect of the world community.

Yep, and he fought for his country. We can’t say the same about kerry.

Everyone on Planet Earth knows that Obama’s a loser and has no grasp either of domestic or foreign policy; that he’s merely playing the race card for all it’s worth, and lining up the suckers among the comliant White population who suffer from “racial guilt complex.”

Diplomats, meanwhile, for the most part, are continuing to treat our incompetence with polite indulgence, except, apparently, for the Russians, who ain’t playing along with any of that phony baloney.

Can’t really say I blame ‘em.

Any chance the D.C. press corps(e) or the morning network shows will cover this?

What if Condi was unable to get the Russians to call her back? Would they have covered THAT?

Kerry is not even 30 days into the job and is already a frickin’ failure.
