John Kerry is too busy spreading BS about climate change to worry about the Middle East going up in flames.
On Tuesday. former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker said that Secretary Kerry, in my view, should be on a plane right now for Baghdad.
Diplomacy is what is crucial right now.
We need to work with the Iraqis at the highest level. That would be Secretary Kerry, backed by the president, so that they can demonstrate the national unity, Kurdish, Sunni and Shia, that is going to be essential, if there is going to be any hope of turning back the ISIS threat.
I would have liked to have seen more sustained high-level diplomatic engagement with the Iraqis. This is a very young democracy that has a lot of challenges. We are hard-wired into their political system. We helped create it, we cant walk away from it.
So I would have preferred, since 2011, to see us more deeply and intensively engaged at the highest levels of government. I dont think its too late, but we better move now, Crocker said.

He’ll probably ask for a Swift Boat to take him on a cruise up the Tigris and Euphrates rivers instead of talking diplomacy with Melaki.
Reporting for duty .....
Can it be only a one way ticket?
And a dullard in between.
This can’t be a new picture of Kerry because his face is bigger and Blank today
Unless FUBAR is the desired outcome...
Sounds good, as long as there is no return ticket.
Can’t say I blame him for not going. He’s fully aware of what happens to diplomats in embassies under seige with this admin.
If that ever happened, Kerry would probably desert, be held hostage by ISIS and then traded for all Guantanamo detainees.
Where is Jon Carry anyway?
Looks like a big condom; if you are implying that JohnF#ckingQueery is a D#ckhead you are absolutely right.
