BAGHDAD (AP) -- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned Mideast nations on Wednesday against taking new military action in Iraq that might heighten sectarian divisions, as reports surfaced that Syria launched airstrikes across the border and Iran flew surveillance drones over the neighboring country.
American officials said the strikes appeared to be the work of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government. They said the target was the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a Sunni extremist group

Kerry, you are centuries late.
Iraq is starting to resemble Serbia exactly 100 years ago today.
These are strange times, indeed.
Bet there skurred now.
Did you ever think you would EVER see the day where Iran and Syria is less radically Muslim than the USA?
Watch out Syria. A new Red Line has been drawn.
Hope they got some chechen warriors who traveled there.
Good hunting to them.
I know Obama supported ISIS in Syria... so I guess he wants them to win in Iraq too. Wonderful.
Maybe he’s worried that bombing Syria will increase global warming.
Assad is just trying to keep wmds out of his country. lol
Or maybe ISIS is pro-LGBT
Well at least they’re heading east. They will be dropping any ordnance in the precious Mediterranean.
Maybe he thinks Assad is acting like Jenjis Kahn..................
What he’s doing is already considering ISIS the victors and new rulers of Iraq, but no surprise there-this is what happens when we have blatant hardcore traitors in the highest levels of government.
Syria is attacking the terrorists we armed that are now attacking Iraq. I am just trying to keep up.
That’s what it sounds like. Since Obama failed to score an ISIS victory in Syria, he’s going to push for one in Iraq... which should make it possible for them to try again in Syria later.
It’s simple: We’re in with ISIS if they’re in Syria, trying to overthrow Assad. But we’re against them in Iraq, where they’re trying to establish a caliphate. But we’re for them if our enemy Assad bombs them. See?
Kerry thinks he’s President just in case some haven’t noted. International leaders understand this all to ell IMO and therefore string Kerry along as they are and do....so far he’s accomplished nothing at all but a repeat of failed attempts in the past.
Kerry (Obama) wants Iraq to serve as a staging ground for ISIS to attack Syria and, eventually, Jordan so there will be a real caliphate across the Middle East.
Once Syria, Jordan and Iraq are jihadi-controlled, they will go after the Big Kahuna - Saudi Arabia. Then, we can launch World War 3 against the terrible, murderous caliphate that we ourselves created. Eisenhower told us to beware of the military-industrial complex that thrives on constant war. Yet, we blindly stumble after anyone telling us that we must protect American interests.
Really? How American are those interests?
Almost, firebrand.....it’s “we SAY we’re against them in Iraq”. Obama’s not actually against ISIS.
Who's on First?
Kerry and Obama are in a real pickle here.
This is the “moderate groups” that Obama was almost willing to go to war with Russia over supporting in September, now they have gone rogue.
Not that Obama really cares, since it matches his worldview, but they were supposed to be attacking Israel, not Iraq.
It’s bad imagery for the administration, and that is ALL they care about.
“American officials said the strikes appeared to be the work of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government”
Unless these strategerist idiot State Department spokespersons and the Media think that al Qaeda/ISIL has an air force
Well, you never know!
They are so damn smart in this administration. Just ask them!
meanwhile Kerry was up in Erbil trying to get the Kurds to back a political alliance with the Baathist/sunnis who used the gas them, to counter Maliki and the Shia majority and overthrow the ELECTED parliament
We live in strange times
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned Mideast nations...
Sounds like he believe his new plastic ‘manly’ jaw will frighten these animals.
and I used to think the clintonites were ignorant dips
Kerry? didn’t he serve in Vietnam collected purple hearts also I think.
We do live in strange times. If Syria and Iran want to do as you suggested, there is nothing we will do about it but talk about more thin red lines.
Yes, he’s one of the bravest war heroes this country has ever seen.
They are, but these are even more so!
John Kerry is a life-size bobble head of John Kerry.
“We will cut off your Ketchup! Did you
Know I was in Vietnam?”
Ooooo! What's next? Will they censure them.....or maybe even..... (GASP!).......... a #HASHTAG!
Gawd, these idiots make me sick!
There is no doubt whatsoever, not one shred of doubt that Obama and his administration are composed of traitors, they are enemies of the United states. The problem is the RINO party and the Democrat party are doing nothing about it. The Democrats were bamboozled by this creep and they don’t want to admit it, and the RINOs are even more pathetic, they don’t want to be called racist and every other thing that makes them hide under their desk. Meanwhile everyday that passes this guy does more and more damage to this country, damage that Al-Qaeda, the Taliban and ISIS only wish they could do. What has he done since he took office? He’s helped radical Muslims take over Egypt, Libya, helped them kill a US Ambassador, Navy Seals, Seal team 6 after he sent them on a bogus mission to kill a bogus Osama Bin-Laden, freed 5 of the top Taliban commanders for a traitor who he is treating as a hero, and now not only is he allowing ISIS to take over Iraq, he is also HELPING THEM! We 2.5 more YEARS of this clown, how much longer are both parties going to wait? We have the ENEMY in the oval office! How much more evidence do they freakin’ need? I truly believe if Al-Qaeda set off an atomic bomb in New York city and they had Obama on HD video personally handing Al-Qaeda the bomb, they STILL wouldn’t impeach his ass!
Don’t know how the sectarian divisions could get anymore “heightened”.
If there's a way to achieve that, I'm sure we'll find it.
Syria has ISIS caught out with it’s lines of supply stretched out. Chance to cut their forces in half.
Agree. He wants the caliphate. Maybe he thinks he will be the caliph.
Kerry is totally worthless, and the rest of the world knows that.
Go to this article posted by xzins . Then, read it, to see how noone in the middle East is listening to the worthless liar, Kerry.
John Kerry ignored by everyone as Iraq dissolves
