Unguarded Comments Suggest Kerry Frustration At Civilian Toll In Gaza 'It's a hell of a pinpoint operation' captured on open microphone

The secretary of state, John Kerry, on Sunday appeared to criticise Israels claims about the targeted scope of its attacks on Gaza, as a open microphone caught him talking to an aide ahead of a TV interview.
Its a hell of a pinpoint operation, its a hell of a pinpoint operation, Kerry, who was appearing on Fox News Sunday as part of a tour of all five main US talkshows, said to an aide on the phone, in a frustrated tone.
It was not the first time Kerry's private criticisms of Israeli policy have emerged in public. In April, the Daily Beast reported that he had warned a closed door meeting of world leaders that Israel could become an apartheid state if a two-state solution was not found and that if peace talks failed there could be a resumption of Palestinian violence against Israeli citizens.
Israel has launched air strikes, artillery fire and a ground operation in Gaza. According to health officials in the Palestinian territory, 340 people have been killed, nearly 2,400 wounded and tens of thousands displaced in 12 days of fighting.
Ahead of his interview with Fox News Sunday, Kerry said: Weve got to get over there. Thank you, John. I think, John, we ought to go tonight. I think its crazy to be sitting around.

Is this the same John Kerry that pinpointed the operations in Vietnam?
I don’t believe the official Palestinian death toll for one minute.
Yes indeed. Kerry is a highly decorated, battle-hardened war hero.
He of the magic hat.
Why don’t you throw your medals at ‘em again, Frenchie?
An enemy of America critizes Israel. (These two things go together so often .....)
“And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” Isaiah 59:14
The members of my tribe voted for Kerry in greater numbers than they voted for Obama (the media exaggerated the number of Jews who voted for Obama).
Kerry is a joke. He represents the Lefts disdain at anyone who has too much strength. They want equality to the lowest common denominator, that of the mud but living serfs of Africa who have little power to overturn their tyrant leaders. There is no such thing as a grassroots democrat and this scenario would ensure their unlimited power and status at the top. They cannot compete on merit therefore they must do so by other means. Merit isn’t earned it is given, in their vision of the future. Rather than stand with Israel, who’s neighbor bombards them with rockets meant to kill the innocent, Kerry stand with those who fire them. The Palestinians are the mud hutters, uneducated and ripe for exploitation. Since Israel has achieved success, they cannot be controlled and their strength is a threat to those who demand compliance and servitude.

little river war, to urban combat between Israeli
Jungle boat captain, Communist John Kerry,
(who served in Vietnam, doncha know!), with his
enlarged head and ego, cannot understand the
will of a nation to survive, because he is so
busy selling out his own.
Kerry is a tool of Satan.

Meanwhile, his dumb boss has been sitting in the White House with Valerie Jarrett making drone strikes all over civilians...
And the very same John F. Kerry that said of Syria, we should jump in here somewhere, but our presence would be so small, it would be as if we were not there at all.
If you are going to dip your oar in the water, it had better be with some effect.
Now, the cancer in Syria has metastasized to Iraq.
John Kerry, there are no pinpoints in war.
As SOS kerry has not done anything except listen to his own voice as nobody cares what he says.
Oh look — UK’s Guardian of Stalinism and terrorism carries water for Kerry!
