Kerry: Arab Countries Offered to Pay for Invasion
washingtonpost.com ^ | 09 04 2013 | Aaron Blake

Posted on 09/04/2013 2:50:13 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

Secretary of State John Kerry said at Wednesday’s hearing that Arab counties have offered to pay for the entirety of unseating President Bashar al-Assad if the United States took the lead militarily.

“With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assess, the answer is profoundly yes,” Kerry said. “They have. That offer is on the table.”

Asked by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) about how much those countries would contribute, Kerry said they have offered to pay for all of a full invasion.

How does the US military feel about being the Arabs mercenaries?

I don’t like it.

In fact, if the Arabs want to pay they can damn well fight themselves.

Our blood isn’t for sale.

I could support an invasion if we are going to turn the country into a Christian nation, ban Islam and make it a territory of the United States.

Oh, great. Now Kerry is hiring out the US Military to the highest bidder.

Join the Army, see the world through the eyes of a mercenary.

Most of the Arab countries do not support this. Who is he talking about? And since when is our military a mercenary force?

And I’m sure those arab countries are just delighted as pie that John F’n Kerry told the world what they offered. I’m sure it won’t be too hard for whoever is supporting Assad to figure out who these nations are and put the heat on them.

“Secretary of State John Kerry”

That man has been Satan’s toe jam since he lied about our troops in the the Viet Nam war.

There is a state that I won’t bother to name that must lead the world in people with their heads up their ass to have elected this moron and the fat coward Kennedy as many times as they did!

John Kerry isn’t even a moderately good LIAR.

Where he sits, he better work on his skills because he is surrounded by exceptionally good liars and they are making him look bad.

We should be getting tribute from them now. Without us they would already be dead and gone. Saddam and Iran would have divided them up.
The idea of sending our soldiers,sailors and airmen off to fight as mercenaries has got to be one of the most evil things that I have ever heard coming out of a CommieRedLiberalRAT ever. We should never forget who said it and why.
They would sacrifice our people to save the reputation of a failed President on the pretext that we were being paid to do it.
Anyone who votes for this war should be strapped to one of the missiles.

Given the desperation displayed on the part of our president and other high up political leaders, I would guess they may have already been paid off to oust Assad and they are now under pressure to deliver.

Hi Mr. Kerry,

Which Arab Countries? Name them. Also can you please provide the amounts they have pledged? Are they going to pay in advance, how much we charging for per bomb or an airstrike? Do they only pay if we manage to oust Assad? If the Russians get involved do we get more money? Is it going to cover the current debt?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Regards,
Citizen Joe

Taking money from muslims to fund our military to empower islamist rebels who will then murder Christians.

The Saudi’s have our politicians completely bought and paid for. That is why the strange bedfellows. Love to do forensics on money flow effecting McCain, Graham, Boehner, Pelosi, Menendez, Obama. All on the take with Saudi money.
Can’t believe Kerry all but admits it.

Why not just sell our sons and daughters to the Arabs so that they can do their dirty work? Why not sell our sons and daughters to the Muslim Brotherhood so they can be killed advancing the MB agenda? Why not just sell out the entire country?

No wait. They already have sold out America.

Now the reality of the situation comes into focus. This administration is (and likely has been) prostituting our nation’s blood and treasure to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Mercenaries? Or, perhaps just as applicable, prostitutes? Is this what America has come to? One big whorehouse, ready to service outside global-moneyed interests? Maybe that Miley Cyrus slut-dance has even more resonance as a ‘symbol’ of what America has become than first seemed.

You make me laugh. Who do you think authorizes the wars that we engage in? The Congress? WRONG!! You listen to the media and that’s the answer that you’ll get.

It is the bankers and money men on WALL STREET. They provide the money and Congress provides the bodies. All the Arabs are doing is trying to step in front of Wall Street and grab some money for themselves.

This answers a lot of my questions about why certain Repubs and members of the administration have been acting, speaking, and voting the way they have been. Now we know who is being paid by the Mohammedans to front this war on Capitol Hill. “...go the whole thing the way we’ve done it before” (Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya) means we become hired guns for the Mohammedans. They get to keep their hands clean. Use us to put Muslim Brotherhood and Al Queda guys in power. When the smoke clears, the U.S. gets the blame or all the broken crockery on the floor, and chased out of town. And, voila! Another Islamic Caliphate is born.

OPPORTUNISM 101-----I tell ya, people, even scarier than an "invasion," flopola candidate Kerry actually believes his tough talk will resurrect him as a presidential contender.......see it in those narrowed eyes and his pontifical pronouncements.

Yikes.

Kerry says "those in Congress who object" will be responsible for future Syrian atrocities. Huh? Does this mean Kerry's responsible for the atrocities up to this point?....after all, Kerry considered Assad his pal just a few years ago.



KERRY DINES WITH HIS PAL ASSAD

======================================================================

BTW, Are we 100% certain Kerry was not referring to his boss Obama? when the Secy
of State derided Assad as a “two-bit dictator” who will “continue to act with impunity”......

================================================

WISH I HADN'TA SAID THAT--Assad once said he "trusts" Kerry.

Not a chance! The chemical weapons ploy is just an easily trigger-able False Flag event.

This is about the gas and the Egyptian Morsi Trials!

The gas part is inevitable. There is gas there. It aint goin nowhere until they pump it. Russia doesn't want them to pump it! Bammy doesn't want them to pump it! Not lookin good folks.

Bammy can't afford for US citizens to find out about his family Terrorist Business, so Bammy has two reasons to.

That's actually been a thought on my mind for quite a while. Too many on both sides of the aisle seem awfully desperate to screw Americans over and its like they're afraid the mafia Don will order a hit on them if they don't keep up their end of the bargain.

If that's true, I couldn't care less if they are sent to sleep with the fishes due to their own treason. I could however be convinced to care a little if they were to come clean and name names.

So, now 0bama’s military are mercenaries? I don’t think so. US soldiers should only fight to defend Americans and their allies. Not to intervene between two groups fighting over their own country. Is Syria an ally? Is Al Queda an ally?

I certainly feel for the poor people being hurt in Syria, especially the unarmed and powerless Christians.

You know, I don’t see why the Saudis don’t just start up their own foreign legion recruited from non-muslims. There is plenty of Middle Eastern precedent for this. These could be used to do the nasty jobs the Saudis wont do. Much like the way they run their economy in fact.

The Saudi natives are not reliable soldiers, and the princes rightfully don’t trust their own people. The soldiers they do have are largely Muslim mercenaries IIRC, and not too trustworthy either, at least for serious fighting in foreign parts.

They can set up their own “Wild Geese” that would be reasonably trustworthy, if they recruit Christian (or Hindu) mercenaries. No danger of these overthrowing the Saudi princes. I.e., the mercenaries could easily kill off the princes, but then they couldn’t hope to control the Muslim population, and who would pay them ? They can even base them somewhere other than Arabia. Somewhere in Africa maybe.
