Skip to comments.Kerry says Congress won't turn its back on the Syrian people
Posted on 09/01/2013 1:13:07 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach
Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday said he cant contemplate that Congress would not authorize military action against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad and therefore turn its back on the United States allies in the region and on innocent Syrian people who have been slaughtered by this gas.
Host Chris Wallace asked Kerry on "Fox News Sunday" what would happen if Congress refused to give its authorization for military action in Syria, and Kerry replied that he does not believe that will happen.

But it will turn its back on the American people?
And the Benghazi Ambassador.
Pray for America to Wake Up
No, of course not. We owe it to them to bomb them.
Jordan has a large number of refugees with fighters recruiting in Jordan .
No doubt about it!
Never had the mettle to look us in the eye anyway, right McCain?
Remember “Nam” Skerry?
Kerry sure as hell turned HIS back on the Vietnamese people when he had the chance. and the American people. He’s nothing but a cowardly communist-loving traitor.
But they turned their back on the American people numerous times! Kerry is trying to incite a riot with talk like that. What in the hell is wrong with these government elite?
Um, what about the Syrians that aren’t so innocent? There’s a lot that Kerry can’t contemplate. I saw the Fox interview, and he seemed dumber than usual.
I don’t want our troops fighting alongside those that flew planes into our buildings on 911.
But has no problem turning his effete back on the American people..
Obozo’s week long media attack to make Congress a rubber stamp or a bunch of do nothings who justify his dictatorship. If he can pull this 8th grade gambit, we really have lost the nation. It’s time to boil the W0n and his media.
If we help them they won’t be grateful and will hate us. If we, as Sarah Palin says, let Allah sort it out, they will just hate us.
You mean the way his predecessor and Obama turned their back on our people in Benghazi?
The US certainly turned its back on Americans murdered in Benghiza.
Interesting, the intel agencies have all this evidence on Assad but know
NOTHING about Benghazi.
Stop the insanity. Let Arab Countries and Allah sort it out.
“the United States allies in the region”
We don’t have any allies in the region except Israel (and the administration aims them harm).
Every last one of those muzzie b@stards in Syria, no matter which side they’re on they hate us and the Israelis, and they want us dead. Among the savage lot of them there isn’t much to choose.
Sick of Americans dying for years to protect the lives of the most ungrateful people on Earth.
How about the South Viet people, John ?
Nowhere are her talents more brilliantly on display than in her Pulitzer Prizewinning bestseller The Guns of August (1962), a riveting account of the outbreak of World War I and the weeks of fighting leading up to the First Battle of the Marne in September 1914. Tuchman dramatizes the diplomatic debacles that precipitated the war and the intransigence of the German and French armies as they dogmatically adhered to their battle plans, with disastrous consequences. Interwoven with her vivid re-creation of the German march through Belgium into France and the fierce fighting on the Eastern Front are astute characterizations of the conflicts key military and political leaders, among them French General Joseph Joffre, German Kaiser Wilhelm II, and British First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill. The Guns of August can also be read as a cautionary study in the perils of brinksmanship, and Tuchmans searching observations about the irrational escalation of conflict among states made a deep impression on President John F. Kennedy, who famously drew on the book for insight during the Cuban Missile Crisis. In a deluxe readers edition for the first time in more than a generation, The Guns of August is presented here with ten fully restored color maps and sixteen pages of photographs.
“Hes nothing but a cowardly communist-loving traitor.”
actually, I would disagree with that. Obama is a communist lover, there is no doubt. our illustrious sec of state however, is cut from the same cloth as bill Clinton. ideology does not drive them, it’s the trappings of wealth and power.
neither could give a crap about any principles, good or bad.
whoever thought up the phrase empty suit must have had Kerry in mind.
Ditto that, I was there.
Yeah, right? Good God Almighty this administration is full of people too stupid to be idiots.
That would make two - Congress and France. Is Hussein even on board with this crap?
...Kerry turned his back on the American people in 1971 while in the Navy reserves he protested along Hanoi Jane and he should have been thrown into a cell.......
The ones in sheep's clothing.
The Raat Machine gave us this clown....
Raat is for the Democraats....
Better for them to turn their back on Obama.
John F’N Kerry, you were an embarrassment to the United States in the 1970’s and you are still an embarrassment today. Take your sorry ass back to Massachusettes and spend the rest of your life windsurfing. Don’t try to look like a political hawk now you pussy, you threw your undeserving medals away long ago.
Which people? Who are we going to kill? Seems like we’ll be turning our back on some of those folks, doesn’t it?
I don’t see a good/bad evil/moral side here. Who are we going to kill?
Why kill any of them? I may not believe in what they do, but I don’t see any reason for additional killing over there.
Who are we going to win over, if we kill even one more person? Not one person. We’ll just be acting the bully, and more people will hate us.
This is just insane.
I couldn’t believe Gloria Borger nailing Kerry. She had him hemming and hawing all over the place. He certainly looked surprised.
I really don’t get this Regimes foreign policy. They are leaving Iraq, Afghanistan though its former govt massacred its civilians. They want to talk to the Taliban though it has massacred civilians. Now they want to bomb Syria...
That’s because they’ve already turned their back on the American people .... we are so screwed if this asshole Kerry and the monkey playing with a grenade Obama get us into a war in Syria.... dumbasses both.
LOL!...well done Jane, well done!!
The scary part that the majority oh the US population are imbeciles. Just look who they vote for. peloci,reid,boxer and countless more.
To Congress, chemical weapons against Americans is A-OK
because THEY are leaving the borders open after
arming al Qaeda with MANPADs and saris.
turn its back on the United States allies in the region...Name one?
Which allies would that be, John...Israel?
What have we been doing for more than two years if not turning our backs to the Syrian people. Over 100,000 killed and two million displaced. Now it is a problem because a 1,000 people were killed by nerve gas?
the man is retarded.
To hell with syria and the whole middle east
About time to think about America and Americans
Ya closet fag,
STFU Hanoi John
Kerry was asked about Congress refusing to give its authorization for military action in Syria......Kerry replied that he does not believe that will happen.
Kerry forgot to mention he had just completed THE DNC'S
COMPASSION-TRAINING SEMINAR as he pontificated on the use of chemical weapons.
When he did his Compassion Act.....Kerry was even able to force out tears when he asserted w/ eyes narrowed for emphasis: "use of chemical weapons in a cowardly crime and a moral obscenity that shocked the worlds conscience."
Then he added.....
"I'm getting a brain transplant tomorrow."
And not a moment too soon.
Assad is a saint compared to Ho Chi Minh.
But big shot cleared everyone of turning their back on the Americans in Benghazi. Nice job Kerry, you anti-American POS.
With our recent history, assurances from the US wouldn’t make me feel very comfortable.
BTW, Valerie just issued the "Obama Doctrine:"
the bombing mission must be vital to protect O's image.
Any resulting damage, mitigated by war profiteering, is an
BACKGROUND MUSIC---"That Old Black Magic Has Me In Its Spell"
" This'll get done fast---I gotta get back to golf."
"A few measly bombs will pump-up all of our resumes,
especially Benghazi screw-ups Susan Rice, candidate Hillary...
and that pontificating jerk, Kerry. "
"And at $50 billion per day for the incursion, we all get to pocket a
few hundred million. Valerie just checked my offshore holdings---
war-profiteering is big bucks. Just ask the 'bombs-away neocons.' "
"Besides, Michelle's been nagging me for new diamonds and a pricey Vineyard house."
What about Christians being slaughtered in all of these countries by “the rebels”? Are they worried about protecting them?
Assad, Mubarak and Gaddafi have done more to protect the Christians in these countries than our present regime which is quite obviously anti-Christ and destroying the moral core of this country.
America has been hijacked and we need to rid ourselves of our current “government.”
Forget about Syria. Let Assad get rid of the Islamist rebels who gas their fellow Muslims, strap bombs to babies and throw acid on their women.
