Posted on 09/01/2013 9:05:58 AM PDT by Bratch
Appearing on Meet The Press on Sunday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) slammed Secretary of State John Kerry on his willingness to intervene militarily in Syria by twisting his most famous words against him.
"I would ask John Kerry, How can you ask a man to be the first one to die for a mistake?" Paul said, in reference to Kerry's famous words against the Vietnam War to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1971.

John Kerry, you go in first with all your military experience “reporting for duty” and your purple heart
Wasn’t he in Vietnam? Now we’re going to have dueling Jang Gis Khan vs. the Tollyban speeches...
Oh that’s very good.
and christmas in Cambodia
You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you dont, you get stuck in Syria.
As much of a war hero as he has always claimed to be he should just go into Syria Rambo style and clear all this up without using the military. I would support that.
Don't worry about the rice that got shot into my @$$ and got me a purple heart.
It was only short grain, so it didn't hurt too badly.
Sociopaths simply don’t care.
Time for the elite to spill their blood for Liberty.
I like that Rand Paul brought this up. It's taken forever. When Kerry came back from VietNam, he headed VietNam Veterans Against the War. His first US Senate run in MA included a very strong anti-war platform and a deep suspicion of those who instigate them.
It's odd and out of character for Kerry to (1) not be very suspicious of it being Assad who's responsible for the use of chemical weapons and (2) be speaking about war as a solution to anything and (3) seriously believing that the scope of war involvement can be contained.
I'm wondering if Obama isn't enjoying seeing Kerry in this awkward situation of being hung out to dry. Keep in mind Obama didn't want Kerry as SoS. He couldn't get Susan Rice.
This is going to be one of the biggest problems for Obama, Biden, and Kerry. That is, they’ve demonized and maligned the motives of anyone who has had the temerity to not agree with them for so long that now that they need people on the other side to reach across and work with them it’s going to be nearly impossible. I blame them with their big lies about Bush (he lied to them about WMD, remember?), the domestic opposition (all racists, by the way), and continuous assaults on religious leaders who don’t support abortion and day-after pills for children. Obama is going to have a long way to go after he’s been so disdainful of nearly all Americans to the right of George McGovern.
Every time I see that twerp in a uniform, it makes me want to puke!
Where is our illustrious leader Chuck Hagel these days?

And your CIA hat.
The guy sitting next to Kerry, above, was a phony who I think had never even been in the service.
Trust me I know all of this, I lived through all of Kerry’s antics.
Excellent points. But it doesn’t matter to these turds. These are idealists. All logic is trumped by their belief that they will listed in history as helping to fashion an “arab spring” to Eqypt, Libya, Syria and God knows what else - Saudi Arabia? They don’t care if it brings in the muslim brotherhood because they see themselves as MB style anti-establishment radicals.
Obama is desperate for his legacy.....he knows the Arab Spring is a dud.
What if Kerry gave a war and nobody came?
HEY~!!! Don’t make fun of Kerry’s Purple Hearts!!
You have to be injured in war to get those and one of his injuries actually required A BAND-AID!!!
“ in reference to Kerry’s famous words against the Vietnam War to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1971.”
AS THE LEADER OF “THE VETERANS AGAINST THE WAR”, no less!!
When the other guy is shooting himself in the ass with short-grain rice, you get out of the way...
Syria is a yawning sh*t hole in which the US has no national interest whatsoever.
And there it is.....
This whole thing smells of Colin Powell at the UN all over again. A SoS who doesn’t believe in the mission doing his best scowling sales pitch to other countries who don’t really care.
Kerry looks just like Baghdad Bob in that picture.
Powell was a much better liar.
he needs to go sleep with Hanoi Jane someplace out in the desert, where the only sounds are explosives, in the distance, but getting closer.
Oh. Did I forget to mention he has no vehicle? My bad.
I did too, but a lot of people I knew and loved didn’t survive...including a brother-in-law. Someone needs to throw shoes at Hanoi John and Jane.
Amen Face. A moment of silence for the tire tracks across skerry’s back from having been thrown under the bus. HOORAY!!!
He needs a suitable nickname.
They should have been tried for treason, especially Jane...still should be.
* Who, indeed, are "our friends" in the region (not counting Israel)?
* With the known "signatures" of the Sarin gas, WHO manufactured it?
* If the Sarin gas was stockpiled, who controlled the stockpile?
* Is this one of the chemical weapons moved from Iraq by the Russians in 2003? Did the US issue these weapons to Iraq years ago?
* Who manufactured the Sarin gas delivery system?
Good for America and western culture: bad.
Bad for America and western culture: good.
In that picture I see the remnants of a man who’s had way too much of himself.
Wow—first time I have seen the first comment deleted by the Moderator.
I am SO glad Rand used Kerry’s signature line against him.
Horseface should be shamed and shunned whenever he appears in public.
I haven’t forgotten 1971.
“theyve demonized and maligned the motives of anyone who has had the temerity to not agree with them for so long that now that they need people on the other side to reach across and work with them its going to be nearly impossible.”
Meanwhile, the willing sycophants sycophants in the media are starting a propaganda campaign against Putin, for DARING to oppose THE MESSIAH OBAMA, like Bloomberg’s article from Brian Bremmer, “Why Is Putin So Crazy?”
(Can’t be posted here.)
They’re going after Putin because of his stance against the sodomites.

Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt’s military — even as Cairo’s security forces massacre anti-government activists.

Kerry is the quintessential manipulative and opportunistic slug who should NEVER, EVER been allowed near elective office.
If you want to see a perfect film portrayal of Kerry, check out the senator in Mel Gibson’s action packed flick “Edge of Darkness”. The folks who wrote and cast that part must have had photos of Kerry tacked to their office walls.
Kind of like a line from Battleship - Liam Neeson tells some bureaucrat that he’ll send more planes in as soon as he puts himself in a cockpit...
