John Kerry tells Russia to disarm Ukraine separatists "in hours"
Reuters ^ | 26 June 2014

Posted on 06/26/2014 7:01:43 AM PDT by McGruff

US Secretary of State John Kerry called on Russia on Thursday to disarm separatists in Ukraine within "the next hours" as the European Union prepared to discuss deeper sanctions against Moscow.

Washington and other Western powers have stepped up pressure on Russia to take concrete action to defuse the conflict in eastern Ukraine, where a ceasefire between Russian-speaking rebels and government forces has appeared to be crumbling.

"We are in full agreement that it is critical for Russia to show in the next hours, literally, that they're moving to help disarm the separatists, to encourage them to disarm, to call on them to lay down their weapons and to begin to become part of a legitimate process," Kerry told reporters in Paris.

He added that EU leaders would discuss possible sanctions on Russia at their summit in Belgium on Friday.

In the manner of Genghis Khan, of course.

Kerry doesn’t get it. They’re in Ukraine. He wants Russia to jump the border and grab their weapons?

If not, he will throw his State Department Medal over the fence in protest while wearing his old fatigues and ribbons adorned. [If you served, you get that]

Not intentionally satire but you'll have to make your own judgment.

You know John Kerry served in Vietnam right?

He can also scream invasion in this case.

You mean JEN-JIS Kahn, don’t you?

I used to think Kerry was trying to sound like some high-brow liberal when he pronounced Genghis Khan that way, but now I believe he was just too stupid to know who Genghis Khan was.

So Russia's supposed to go into eastern Ukraine and disarm the freedom fighters? But.....Russia was told to not even be close to the border.

I'm confused. Maybe Russia should go into the breakaway regions, disarm everyone, and take over the area? Or at least secure their independence? It does sound like a deal Putin can't refuse.

Besides which no one on Earth is going to disarm. Seeing how easy it was for ISIS to overwhelm an area makes it very obvious we're on our own.

Just shows you how irrelevant the position has become.

That’s what I thought.

Jdg 9:4 And they gave him threescore and ten pieces of silver out of the house of Baalberith, wherewith Abimelech hired vain and light persons, which followed him.

Jdg 9:14, 15 Then said all the trees unto the bramble, Come thou, and reign over us. And the bramble said unto the trees, If in truth ye anoint me king over you, then come and put your trust in my shadow: and if not, let fire come out of the bramble, and devour the cedars of Lebanon.

The vain and light people that Obama has hired have devoured this great country.

Communication is partly what you say and partly how you say it. The ‘how’ guarantees that the Russians will not comply (not that they would have complied anyways).

Or what? He’ll give them another stern warning? Or when they don’t do it, he’ll snap at them, “Do you know who I am?!?!?”

Has Kerry drawn the “red line” for odumbo now? So what will happen if Russia decides NOT to disarm in hours, days, weeks or months?

J Fing Scarry, with his paste-face, tells Putin “within hours”

Putin must be shaking in his boots.

After all, Scarry served in Veit Nam, y’know.

Kerry is telling Russia to disarm the rebels, but Kiev refused within hours of the Geneva agreement to disarm the private militias of the Billionaire Oligarchs, and Right Sector.

Kerry keeps threatening more sanctions, and Russia says they can also enact harmful sanctions in return, while US and Euro companies are screaming “HELL NO!!” to more.

You have really got to wonder just how loud the laughing is, in the FSB’s North American office.

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 no one in the middle East is listening to the worthless liar, Kerry.

John Kerry ignored by everyone as Iraq dissolves
