Kerry: ‘I Want to Thank President Putin’

Kerry: ‘I Want to Thank President Putin’ September 14, 2013 - 7:03 PM By Terence P. Jeffrey

(CNSNews.com) - Secretary of State John Kerry said today that he wanted thank Russian President Vladimir Putin for pursuing a diplomatic solution for dealing with the problem caused by the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad controlling and using chemical weapons.

“I want to thank President Putin for his willingness to pick up on the possibility of negotiating an end to Syrian weapons of mass destruction,” Kerry said today in Geneva, where along with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov he announced a deal to remove and destroy Syria’s chemical weapon’s stocks.

That diplomatic solution began when Kerry, speaking in London five days ago, made what the State Department itself quickly insisted was a “rhetorical” suggestion that Syria give up all its chemical weapons—a suggestion which, in almost the same breath with which he uttered it, Kerry himself dismissed it as something that would never happen.

However, the Russian government swiftly snatched up Kerry’s rhetorical statement, put it to the Syrian government, and announced that they intended to move forward with it.

Today, in Geneva, Kerry and Lavrov announced a six-point plan to carry this diplomatic solution out with the endgame being the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons by the middle of next year.

In London on Monday, a reporter from CBS News had asked Kerry: “Is there anything at this point that his [Bashar al-Assad’s] government could do or offer that would stop an attack?”

“Sure,” said Kerry. “He could turn over every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community in the next week. Turn it over, all of it, without delay, and allow a full and total accounting for that.

A deliberate insult to Bobo in return for undercutting him.

Kerry is a real slime ball. He accuses U.S soldiers of war crimes in South East Asia, meets with the VC in Paris on his own while still in active service, participates in a subversive anti-war group, pretends to get multiple Purple Hearts even though he only spent about 45 days in Vietnam, marries an heiress for her dead husband’s money, parks his yachts out of state to avoid confiscatory taxes from his home state that he advocated for other people, and now thanks that ruthless ex-KGB thug Putin for, in effect, exposing his boss to be the foreign policy novice that he is. The nuts are in charge of the nuthouse.

My goodness, they sure went out of their way with this circus to take our minds off the IRS, Benghazi and NSA scandals. I wonder what Putin was promised by the dummy. I remember odummy wanted to reduce our nuclear stockpile believing Russia would do the same. Someone better check to see if we still have one.

Kerry is looking toward the future. Once he and his cohorts destroy this country, he’ll be moving on.

In ancient Oriental kingdoms, messengers who brought a monarch bad news often suffered the penalty of death.

Just a historic note here.

Now watch as Putin sends troops in to “protect Christians” into Syria. Or he may follow up this success with an invasion of Beliruse or Romania or Georgia —watch as he sends his navy out into the Indian Ocean. They may want Alaska Back. Putin has big plans—we can only guess at.

From one communist to another.......

You broke the code on this one, brother.

Kerry was an anti war Commie from 1970 on. Now he is negotiating with a fellow traveler, while all the birdbrains are proclaiming "peace in our time".

What a charade.

Now, I am beginning to understand what Zippy meant when he said "he would have more flexibility after the election".

This is what Dear Leader meant by “I will have more leeway after the election.” This has been all scripted and if we had a real journalistic body working on behalf of the people, as designed, this would not have grown legs. He is selling out America, one script at a time. Journalistic malfeasance run a muck is to blame for much of this, coupled with a lazy electorate. Teddy Roosevelt warned us of the ramifications of a corrupt media and the need for an english speaking standard. I guess the youngins are no longer being taught what, has now, become the obvious.

Pray for America!

What he has said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in his rambling, incoherent nonsense was he even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought.
Everyone in this thread is now dumber for having read it. I award him no points and may God have mercy on his soul.

Obama is currently negotiating with Putin the terms for the removal of the chemical arms from Syria. These negotiations entail the removal to be conducted and overseen by Russia/Putin, Assad’s 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 East’s future, essentially eliminating the central role of the US in that vital area of the world since the 1970’s.

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. (Let’s 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. In one side we have Assad, Iran and Russia, and in the rebel’s side, Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and Obama. The US should have never gotten involved in the Syrian civil war.

Again, in the most egregious Orwellian fashion, the American Secretary of State thanks Putin for taking over the leadership in the Middle East after displacing the United States. Meanwhile, the American media will laud Obama’s 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.

You should write satire.

Oh, wait.... that's all true.

It just reads like satire, that's the problem.

And I want to thank American voters who returned the ‘fish out of water’ phony for a second term enabling him to drag the rogues gallery of lieutenants with him.

America is disgraced. Obama is disgraceful. Kerry is a ketchup-faced gigolo idiot.
