Kerry: Russia Must Be 'Very Careful' in Judgments on Ukraine
NBC News ^ | 2/26/2014 | Carrie Dann

Posted on 02/26/2014 10:01:22 AM PST by McGruff

Secretary of State John Kerry warned Wednesday that Russia must be “very careful” in judgments it makes about Ukraine and that it must keep its commitment to respect the sovereignty of the nation.

“I think Russia needs to be very careful in the judgments that it makes going forward here,” he said in an exclusive interview with NBC's Andrea Mitchell. “We are not looking for confrontation. But we are making it clear that every country should respect the territorial integrity here, the sovereignty of Ukraine. Russia has said it would do that and we think it’s important that Russia keeps its word.”

Kerry said that Russian President Vladimir Putin should “listen carefully to Ukrainians who have voiced their desire for change,” repeating that the United States does not view its relationship with Russia as a “sort of continuation of the Cold War.”

“This is not Rocky IV,” he said. “Believe me. We don’t see it that way.”

I am kinda thankful that John the traitor Kerry is such a jerk and accused veterans of war crimes. I might have become a liberal if it were not for him.

Ouch. I became a conservative because of the media and their push to keep everyone down.

Kerry is a dipshit soaked in liberal kool-aid.

“I think Russia needs to be very careful in the judgments that it makes going forward here,” he said

Why, Jon Carry? Why must they?

It seems to me that Russia has complete freedom of action here, that except for indigenous forces there can be no meaningful opposition to Russia's will in this situation, and to say otherwise is potentially destabilizing.

Actually, he's licking his chops - he sodomized Obama on Syria - this time he gets a chance for a twofer.

Like we respected the territorial integrity of Serbia with Kosovo?

Like we respected the territorial integrity of Libya, which is now a basket case?

Being of Ukrainian descent myself, I can tell you this - they’re nobody to mess with or take lightly.

“Good thing we have a Vietnam War hero as Secretary of State. He’ll show those Russians what difference it makes.”

Then, throw in a anti America Secretary of Defense and a Potus, who hates a strong America.

Then, Putin will run back to Moscow quivering and in tears.

I need a massive sarcasm symbol after posting this.

Ukrainians are pansies. Little lavender-soaked wussies, floppy-rabbit-eared feckless layabouts, cowards, homosexuals, deviants, and awkward pimply teenagers. There is nothing frightening about the most fearsome Ukranian, since their balsa wood bones are covered by PlayDo flaccid muscles, and wrapped in a delicate, fragile, pasty-white skin.

Or we will give them a “tongue lashing” that they won’t soon forget. This all would be amusing to watch children playing an adult game if so much wasn’t at risk.

Not sure where you live, but that’s NEVER been my experience with Ukies.

They worked their asses off, appreciated the opportunity to live the American Dream, and were better at being Americans than a whole lot of other folks I’ve seen who have been here for a lot longer. The Ukies that I grew up with were Patriotic Americans who served overseas, came home, and built lives for themselves.

My old man would put his second-generation American Ukie WWII Airborne boot on the ass of anyone who said differently.

Glad to see that Jon Carry does not disappoint - he’s still one of the most arrogant horse’s asses in all of DC (and that IS saying a lot).

Let’s see, Jon, how trying to threaten Russia to behave might work. What will you do when Vlad orders a dozen divisions, plus 1500 fighters and fighter-bombers for air cover and ground support to invade Ukraine and put down the rebellion that “threatens” Russia? Yeah, you, the guy whose boss is cutting back America’s military to pre-WW2 levels, who has shown that he backs down from EVERY confrontation and who has earned Vlad’s contempt by being as queer as a $3 bill. What are we going to do, sail the 6th Fleet up the Bosporus and land an expeditionary force somewhere on the shores of the Black Sea to fight Russians on what they believe is their soil? The Russkies, if you and Obama had the balls to try it, would sink every ship and kill or imprison every soldier, sailor and Marine who survived faster than you threw your medals over the WH fence.

Geez, you don’t even have enough self-respect to not make a complete horse’s ass out of yourself, you moron!

I'm of Ukrainian heritage. I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking to troll me, I can tell you I don't have a thin skin. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you retract what you have said about Ukrainians that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
