After strike deal on Syria, Kerry says him calling it impossible was 'diplomacy'
Published September 14, 2013 FoxNews.com
Secretary of State John Kerry said Saturday, after reaching a tentative agreement with Russia to disarm Syria of chemical weapons, that his earlier statement about the impossibility of such a plan was in fact the language of diplomacy.
I purposefully made the statements, Kerry said in Geneva, Switzerland, after reaching the framework of an agreement with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. And I did indeed say it was impossible and [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] won't do it, even as I hoped it would be possible and wanted him to do it. And the language of diplomacy sometimes requires that you put things to the test, and we did.

the language of diplomacy.
Ah, so THAT’S what one calls it.
"I meant to do that", Peewee Herman said.
He was for the impossibility before he was against it.
Yeah that was no more diplomacy on Kerry’s part than his Purple Hearts being legitimate. I think the last time Kerry said what he really meant was when he called American soldiers murderers and rapists.
What an a**. We're not stupid!!
As Lavrov pointed out, at some point he just needs to shut up.
Let’s see...if I say it’s impossible, Putin will jump at the chance to get a weapons deal from his BBF. P>Be careful John....nothing has been signed yet!!
How conVEEENient for the Secretary!
Is that nuanced enough ya John F’N?
“diplomacy” = lying
Put some ketchup on it. It will taste different.
P.T. Barnum was right.
I purposefully made the statements, Kerry said
“I meant to do that”, Peewee Herman said.
That’s an interesting Photoshopping challenge.
Kerry is the southern end of a north-bound horse
BS is a new name for diplomacy?
Who saw that coming
In like ghenghis kahn out with diplomacy
Anyone know how to spell BS?
Ohh,..that clever guy!!!!
What is being missed in all of this is the fact that military force was removed and sanctions put in if the Syrians fail to comply.
The ‘Taqiyah’, (Muslim strategy of lying to further your own interests, survival) of political posturing as practiced by GayMuzzie and his entourage of ‘kafir’ sh!t eaters.
sooo, that the party line now???
Its not our problem anyway.
“I meant to do that.” he thundered, licking his lips in that annoying way.
What a jackass!
OBAMA / JOHN F. KENNEDY - HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF
Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it -Jorge Santayana
In 1962 Khrushchev out-smarted John F. Kennedy during the October Missile Crisis in 1962.
In 2013 Putin crushed Obama on Syrias chemical arsenal disposal.
During the resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Kennedy betrayed the Monroe Doctrine, not only by allowing an extra hemispheric power to establish a base in this Continent, but by also committed the U.S. military to protect this enemy Soviet base, established in Cuba, and only 90 miles from our coasts. Under the Kennedy / Khrushchev secret accords, the United States would not allow any attacks on Cuba by the Cuban exiles, whether from American soil or any other country. Furthermore, in order to retire the missiles from Cuba, Kennedy also promised to dismantle the American missiles in Turkey and Italy.
Kennedy trusted the soviets and he did not require verification of the missiles removal. So, Castro did not allow neither the United States, nor inspectors from the United Nations, to supervise the return of the Missiles to the Soviet Union.
That feat is presented in the History books as the finest moment of John F. Kennedys Presidency. Although, its effects were even more catastrophic for the United States and the rest of Latin America than the Bay of Pigs - the first great defeat of the Kennedy administration. After the Missile Crisis, Castro was able to freely subvert Latin America and send Cuban troops to fight in Africa as mercenaries for the expansion of the Soviet empire, and when doing so, he was secure that the United States would not allow the Cuban communist regime to be attacked.
Fast forward 5 decades, President Obama is currently negotiating the terms for the removal of the chemical arms from Syria. These negotiations entail the removal to be conducted and overseen by Russia/Putin, Assads main supporter and must trusted ally! In order for Assad to agree to this plan, he has demanded that Obama promise that the US will not attack the genocidal Syrian regime, under any circumstances. These terms will leave Assad free to continue his butchering of innocent men, women, and children. Once agreed upon, these negotiations would also result in Putin gaining the control over the Middle Easts future, essentially eliminating the central role of the US in that vital area of the world.
To throw salt in the wound, Putin has also promised to further increase the shipment of conventional arms to Syria and Iran in an effort to secure the stability of those regimes; which would in turn make him a strong candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. (Lets just ignore the fact that 1,400 innocent civilians were murdered by chemical arms; while more than 100,000 innocents were murdered by conventional arms.) Putin will exchange the chemical arms with Assad for an unlimited supply of conventional arms. In addition, Putin has also sent the Russian navy to protect Syria from any possible US attacks. We must all keep in mind the fact that the war in Syria is being waged between two evils. The US should have never gotten involved in the Syrian civil war.
Again, in the most egregious Orwellian fashion, the American media will display Obamas Syrian debacle as a great victory for peace. Perhaps he will receive another Nobel Peace Prize, and this time it will be shared with Putin.
Bwahaha....what a useless fool he is!
According to our elections, over half the people who read this nonsense actually believe it.
A lie by any other name smells as bad.
To paraphrase Will Rogers, diplomacy is the art of saying “nice doggie” while you bite yourself to save the dog the trouble.
True, but Kerry and Obama want to pretend as if the military strike is still an option, according to the agreement, it isn’t.
Kerry would rather climb to the top of a tree and tell a lie than stand on the ground and tell the truth.
