Juggling foreign policy hotspots from Israel to Iran to Ukraine, Secretary of State John Kerry strongly defended the Obama administrations foreign policy to Meet the Press host David Gregory, arguing that the administration had successfully used diplomacy to further peace whereas certain previous administration (a-HEM) were trigger happy to the point of starting wars.
What [Obama] faces is a problem with a bunch of critics who want to jump to conclusions without looking at the facts, Kerry said. The facts could not be more clear. The United States of America has never been more engaged, helping to lead in more places than we are now.
Kerry listed multiple diplomatic successes, from a quieter North Korea to the destruction of Syrias chemical weapons to the rollback of Irans nuclear program.
One thing Ive seen for certain: people arent worrying around the United States, sitting around wanted the US to leave; people are afraid the United States might leave, Kerry said. The fact is that in every fundamental issue of conflict today, the United States is in the center, leading, and trying to find an effort to make peace where peace is very difficult.

No doubt suffering from PTSD after that terrible tour on the “94 Boat” and those days on the beach in front of the O’Club at An Thoi.
He’s talking about using our taxpayer money to shove homosexuality down the throats ( so to speak) of countries all around the world.
The administration sounds like a bunch of kooks even to liberals these days.
If we were as trigger happy as Jacques the Gigolo, one of us would have shot ourselves in the ass and applied for a purple heart by now.
OMG, please tell me this is satire.
