Skip to comments.Kerry: 'Baloney' U.S. Troops Now More at Risk
Posted on 06/08/2014 8:18:07 AM PDT by kristinn
Secretary of State John Kerry says it's baloney to argue that U.S. troops will be more at risk in Afghanistan after the prisoner swap of five Taliban commanders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
Our combat role in Afghanistan is over, Kerry said in an interview aired Sunday on CNNs State of the Union, when asked if U.S. troops were being put at increased risk.
"Were going to have very few people in that kind of position, he said. On occasion, but I honestly, I just think thats a lot of baloney because, to whatever degree it may be true, they will wind up putting themselves at the mercy of those people who are very effective who are there, who will deal with those guys.

I think he may be a worse sos than shrillery
What a spew of political bullshit and double talk!
Go ahead and make sense of that sentence.
I dare you.

I think I need a translator over here.
This man (Vietnam Vet, doncha know) is in love with his own voice.
If Obozo is willing to spend millions of dollars for a deserter, what would he pay for a General or a Colonel or a medal of honor winner?
Halp us, Jon Kerry, we’re stuk in Helmand Province.
It’s the gin soaked grapes.
Of course he is. How could anybody match the high standards of success that she achieved?
See another current thread: Hillary Clinton remains popular for her time as secretary of state, viewed apart from Obama
Well, John “I was in Viet Nam” Kerry knows as much about foreign policy and foreign relations as Joe Biden. So I’d say we got nothing to sweat here, folks. /s
John Kerry doe not understand history if he thinks winding down a war in Afghanistan means there there are no risks. The Afghans have a history of making life miserable for a withdrawing army.
Just ask the Brits and the Russians.
The Democrats hitched their wagon to Obama and he ran them off a cliff.
EVERY terrorist attack now belongs to the Democrat Party.
Our combat role is NOT over.
Can anything good come from the Obama administration?
Our enemy is not stupid! ...and neither are most Americans.
Did JFnKerry ever apologize for his putting GIs at greater risk — by his pro-Viet Cong activities?
Johnny Ketchup mixes a bunch of words together, throws it at the eager MSM, and you want us to make sense out of them?
Translation: “We in the Hussein administration are stupid enough to pay twice for the same real estate.”
... -— ...
He is more stupid than I ever thought he was....
“what would he pay for a General or a Colonel or a medal of honor winner? “
He’d give them Dearborn! Oh! Wait,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
What would Obozo pay for a captured American congress critter or city mayor (some day it will happen, you know) to get him/her back?
It all depends if he/she is a democrat.
Hey, dipchit Kerry, the danger is world-wide and Øbama has seen to it that the world is a far more dangerous, destabilized place. Let’s start with all the other groups who have a detainee in Gitmo who have just been given the key to unlock the cell.
Confidential to terrorists: imagine what kind of deal Øbama would cut if you had a member of his cabinet as hostage, oh, say maybe a Secretary of State? Nah, Kerry says there is no danger so that is simply a strawman argument.
The Lone Ranger rides again.
This is as stupid as what Juan Williams said the other night. He said if they get back into terrorism, we’ll just kill them.
Honestly, I want some of whatever it is that puts these imbeciles in dreamland.
Kerry ? Mr. Baloney speaks . Every word drips of deceit and obfuscation .
The 0bama administration off the rails.
It’s going to get ugly, folks.
Baloney is just a lunch meat.
Are you now admitting that when the next US soldier leaves his base, you will not try to recover them ? Are you also admitting that you will not try to rescue US soldiers taken hostage ? You have left our troops hanging to whither on the vine, as usual.
Here’s rice in yur butt and another PH, Kerry. You know baloney, huh? with grey poupon on it.
“very few” is not the same as “none”, Kerry, you fuchwad. I suggest you go march around a bit with the “few” and see how you feel about how dangerous things are then.
You’re right about that...
There is the war against the American people yet to be fought...
We will be doomed to failure unless Progressive idiots like Kerry, Clinton and Obama accept the fact we’re in a holy war, not a conventional war. It makes no difference to Jihadists that the U.S. under Obama’s watch has decided to surrender in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Islam is on the march again. It’s no respecter of the Geneva Convention or other man-made “rules” of warfare. Its only goal is worldwide victory.
Anyone who sees the world as it is, not through Progressive “glasses,” knows releasing 5 very dangerous Jihadists will lead to predictable tragic consequences for Americans, whether or not we pull out of Afghanistan. Get ready for another 9-11.
Possibly it would be more accurate to say that armed forces personnel are finding it difficult to contemplate being killed for one of Obama’s moronic foreign policy gaffes or idiotic internationalist fantasies.
Certainly it can be said, however, that our troops are more likely to be killed these days for some ludicrous Leftist ideology, or simply because the Obama Yes Men in the Pentagon are more than willing to sacrifice troop lives for their Chair Polisher lust for promotion at any cost.
Kerry has always had a visceral hatred for American soldiers. A bunch more killed will please him no end. He looks down on most Americans for that matter.
Please do not insult rocks.
Hanoi John betrays vets again.
“Kerry” and “baloney” - two words which belong together.
Apparently this bungling idiot doesn't realize that just driving down the road in any military vehicle is a form of combat in Afghanistan. Maybe he thinks they've been engaged in huge tank battles and WWII style troop movements.
