Kerry: Our Goal is Not Eliminating Iranian Nuclear Capability

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On April 15, 2014 @ 7:30 pm In The Point | No Comments

Sometimes a choice of words can be extremely revealing. That was the case with Kerry’s contentious testimony in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Under pressure, Kerry tends to slip and say revealing things. That was how the infamous, “for it and against it” clip was born.

Kerry dismissed breakout as “just having one bomb’s worth, conceivably, of material, but without any necessary capacity to put it in anything, to deliver it, to have any mechanism to do so, and otherwise.”

He then admitted that “our goal” is not eliminating nuclear capability as much as “proving that this is a peaceful program.”

The first part of that is a preview of the next stage of Obama Inc’s Iran argument. One bomb doesn’t matter. Wait until they have thirty.

The second part however is even more revealing.

“I talked with our team on the ground in Vienna yesterday,” Kerry said. “They are having serious, expert, in-depth, detailed conversations about what it takes to achieve our goal. I mean, of proving that this is a peaceful program.”

Proving the peacefulness of Iran’s program should be its responsibility. It’s not supposed to be our goal to prove that, but to find ways of confirming it.

But Kerry spoke truly. He is out to prove that it’s peaceful. Whom is he out to prove it to? To Americans.

Just as in Vietnam and Nicaragua, Kerry has once again adopted the viewpoint of the enemy and is using it to make the enemy’s argument to Americans.

That the US accepts the Iranian program as peaceful on it's face should come as no surprise. Besides, they're peaceful till they nuke someone. Ignore their role exporting terror. They kill mostly Arabs, Jews, and Americans anyway, and the American's are mostly soldiers, volunteersw.

Correct!

Kerry couldn’t possibly be MORE out of touch.

The onus is on THEM not US!

So long as they are happy, peaceful bombs.

Are you terrified yet at how close this ambulatory vegetable came to becoming POTUS in 2004?

Which means a State actively sponsoring terrorism around the world will have access to copious amount of dirty bomb making materials.

Great policy there!

Am certain you are correct. I know there are rumors, that look to not be rumors, that appear correct as facts. Yep, with this one I know my family is not safe.

The Obama legacy - one that terrorizes its own citizens but causes the rest of the world to mock openly. Will we still be a nation by 2017 with these clowns in charge?

This is exactly why the twice unconstitutionally elected foreign born Islamic Marxist put this traitor in office, because he knew he would assist Irans nuke capabilities.

The people of this regime will destroy the Republic. America will go the way of England, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, etc. This country will be run my Muslim loving idiots and Muslims will begin to get what they want and Sharia Law will come in and our laws will be ignored. There are already many areas popping up around the nation where law enforcement, etc. will not go. No-Go Zones I think they call them. For Muslims only.

Thanks SJackson.

Well of course he wants to “prove” that — then everyone will roll over on the “agreement” and “treaty”.

That's absurd and he knows it. Iran test fired ballistic missiles from a barge in the Caspian Sea in the 1990s. They put a satellite in low earth orbit in 2009. If you believe the reports about Operation Merlin, they already have the blueprints for a compact warhead. All they're missing is the fissile material.

And,OTOH,your intention was to *help* your pals (the enemy) *win* the Vietnam War.

You will rot in hell,Mr Kerry...both for having helped the Communists win in Vietnam *and* for helping the moslem pig fornicators in Iran get a nuke.

Well, it absolutely WILL be a peaceful program.

Perhaps for many years.

Until it ISN'T!

By then it's too late.

At least we nuked someone right off the bat with what... our third bomb ever built? People knew we weren't messing around.

“I think the United States should have offered the opportunity to provide the nuclear fuel, test them [the Iranians], see whether or not they were actually looking for it for peaceful purposes. If they weren’t willing to work a deal, then we could have put sanctions together. The president did nothing.”

John Kerry - during a Sept. 30, 2004 foreign policy debate with former President George W. Bush

I believe either the Euros or Russia offered that deal some years ago, possibly both. Since the objective is nuking Israel, I wouldn’t trust either of them, Russia less than the Euros, but Iran didn’t bite. For good reason, they’re getting a much better deal from Obama

First he concludes in advance of any investigation that it is a peaceful program, and then his goal is to prove it. So long as he stays objective and judicious./s

Gee “our” goals change a lot.

Reminds me of Lone Ranger asking “What do we do now Tonto?” and Tonto responds, “What do you mean ‘we’, white man”?

Kerry recently said it was also not “our” (USA’s) goal to have Arabs/Muslim nations recognize Israel as a “Jewish state” as UN guaranteed some 60+ years ago.

Kerry is a fraud. He has always believed American diplomacy is supposed to accept what our opponents say, at face value, and refuses to accept we have absolutely NO obligation to do so and do so ONLY at our risk, a risk we need not and should never take.
