  • Putin ignores Kerry plea, instead deploys Top Gun fighter jet to join Syria battle

    Russia seemingly has ignored Secretary of State John Kerry’s appeals to stop bombing civilians and allow critical humanitarian aid to starving Syrians – and is instead escalating its military involvement, deploying four of its most capable fighter jets to Syria, two defense officials confirmed to Fox News. The decision to send the Su-35S jets poses yet another hurdle for Kerry’s efforts to proceed with peace talks. The Su-35S is Russia’s most advanced warplane, capable of air-to-air and air-to-ground missions, one official familiar with the jet said. Already, continued Russian airstrikes against Syrian opposition fighters, some backed by the CIA, were...

    As those who follow Syria's seemingly intractable civil war are no doubt aware, Washington is a big part of why the conflict is now going into its sixth year. What began as a plan to destabilize the Alawite government by "playing on Sunni fears of Iranian influence" (to quote a leaked diplomatic cable from then-Deputy Chief of Mission in Syria William Roebuck) gradually metamorphosed into a overt and at times absurd effort to arm and train a series of rebel groups in an attempt to bring about regime change in Damascus. Those efforts have thus far failed, in part because...

    Days after Iran received hundreds of billions of dollars in sanctions relief from the controversial nuclear deal, US Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday admitted a good portion of the massive funds will go to terror. Speaking at the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Kerry spoke about the massive kickback Tehran is receiving after nuclear sanctions were lifted last weekend. "I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) or other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists," he acknowledged to CNBC. "You know, to...

    How does Iran spell relief? K E R R Y. Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters at the State Department that the lifting of sanctions on Iran is just "days away." The $150 billion windfall for the terrorist state will happen "sooner rather than later," Kerry said. Meanwhile, there will be a vote in the House next week that would prevent the administration from lifting sanctions on Iranian banks and financial institutions unless the administration can certify that the companies are not financing terrorism or ballistic missiles.

"The foreign minister made it clear to me they intend to complete obligations with respect to implementation day as rapidly as possible," Kerry was quoted as having said.

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday said Iran made “significant progress” in keeping up its end of the nuclear deal with world powers, after it was reported that the Islamic Republic sent a major shipment of low-enriched uranium materials to Russia, AFP reports.

The Russian foreign ministry confirmed the report, according to AFP.

    Kerry Says Paris Agreement Crafted To Avoid Congress By SARAH WESTWOOD 12/13/15 10 Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday the climate agreement reached this week in Paris did not contain any enforcement provisions because Congress would not have approved them. "It doesn't have mandatory targets for reduction and it doesn't have an enforcement, compliance mechanism," Kerry said during an interview on "Fox News Sunday." Kerry said such mechanisms were not included because Congress would have refused to greenlight the deal. Binding legal requirements would have made the Paris agreement a treaty, requiring approval from two-thirds of the Senate. Because...

Burke's director Harold Brooks-Baker said Kerry had his mother, Rosemary Forbes, to thank for most of his royal connections.

    HANOI, Vietnam US Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday he profoundly disagrees with the reasoning behind decisions by two prominent Democratic lawmakers to vote against the nuclear deal he negotiated with Iran. Speaking in the Vietnamese capital, Kerry said the facts do not bear out the arguments made by the Senates No. 3 Democrat Chuck Schumer, and the ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Eliot Engel. He said he respects the right of lawmakers to make their own decisions about the merits of the deal, but said rejection does not offer any alternative than a drumbeat...

"Consequently, the GCC countries have welcomed...

  • Kerry Might Be Disturbed by Iran, But Obama Sure Isnt

    So Secretary of State John Kerry finds Iran Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khameneis plans to defy U.S. Middle East policy very disturbing. (H/T Allahpundit at Hot Air). So now Kerry is disturbed by Iran? Apparently, Kerry wasnt all that disturbed negotiating with a regime that is currently holding four Americans in captivity. Of course, when Major Garrett of CBS News dared to question President Obama about it, he admonished Garrett and told him he should know better. If Kerry genuinely finds Khameneis statements disturbing, President Obama surely doesnt. After all, when Khamenei uttered Of course, yes, Death to America, back...

    Ted Cruzs worst fear about the nuclear deal with Iran? That millions of Americans will be murdered by radical theocratic zealots. President Obama [argues] that under the deal Irans ability to quickly make a bomb will be hamstrung, and that doing nothing would actually accelerate Irans nuclear capabilities. But Cruz said if Iran were to acquire a bomb, he fears the detonation of a nuclear weapon over Tel Aviv,... that would murder vast numbers of Palestinians and Israeli Jews. The odds are unacceptably high that they would view the murder of those Palestinians is perfectly acceptable collateral damage to annihilating...

    In what seemed like a political nanosecond, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement on Saturday condemning Donald Trumps callous assertion that day that Sen. John McCain is not a war hero. Senator McCain is an American hero because he served his country and sacrificed more than most can imagine. Period. There is no place in our party or our country for comments that disparage those who have served honorably. The RNC is 100 percent correct. McCain is a hero. His sacrifice and service to this country when so many like Trump looked for ways to avoid the Vietnam...

Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon adviser and expert on rogue regimes, said that the official remarks by Iranian officials and clerics...
