Is there a bigger idiot in the U.S. government right now than the current U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry?
Even with that lunatic warmonger John McCain running a close second, the big difference there is that John Kerry made his political “bones” as an anti-war advocate during the Vietnam War. John McCain has always been a warmonger. Kerry is a peacemaker suddenly turned war officer.John Kerry had also publicly thrown “his” war medals over the White House fence in protest of the Vietnam war! Only it turned out decades later that he had thrown someone else’s medals over the White House fence. He actually kept his own and he only owned up to the ruse when a reporter spotted the medals framed and hanging on the wall of his Senate office. So in reality he had thrown another veteran's medals over the White Hosue fence and publicly claimed that they were his own. How stupid is that?
This is a man who had a fire hydrant moved from in front of his Boston condominium at taxpayer expense just so he could park closer to his unit. This man has no shame.
I don't have to go into how his fellow Swift Boat buddies feel about him.In his "Let's go to War" speech earlier this week, as Secretary of State for the United States of America, John Kerry stood up in front of the American people and lied his ass off…again.
As one person whom I’d identify if I knew his name said it best: “He looked like he was trying to win a high school debate.”Well said and by the looks of things the American People remain unconvinced.
Why? Because there is no case. Everything John Kerry said is unconfirmed. We don’t know how many people supposedly died in the “strike”, nobody does. We don’t even know if there was a strike. We don’t know who else has poison gas and we don’t know who had actually used it. There is no confirmable proof at this time. And his appeals to our feelings about the CHILDREN were hollow liberal-speak. Nothing we haven't heard from this man his entire carreer as a near-do-well politician who by virtue of being around so long has finally grasped the brass ring of higher power.But it doesn't matter who is telling the tale, it is still a tale.
Why is it yet again the United States job to teach ANYBODY in the world a lesson in ANYTHING?The American people, so weary of decades of almost constant warfare, are finally tired of being the World Police. So for the very first time in his bizarre, conflicted and divisive presidency, Mr. Obama is going to state his case to Congress and leave the matter for them to decide.
The last time they got to do this beyond a merely symbolic vote after troops were already sent and involved was World War II. Congress, according to the U.S. Constitution, should be involved in ALL decisions to go to war. This power has routinely been ignored by past presidents since Lyndon B Johnson which resulted in the War Powers Act of 1973 which was passed over the veto of then President Richard Nixon.
But now Congress has the chance to re-assert itself into government. The outrage of the American people is resolute and has shown to be a resounding “NO” when it comes to this latest act of aggression against a sovereign nation.
The eyes of the world will be upon them. Will the do the right thing? Can they?The world should now learn that they should fight their own battles. With the prospect of having to deal with the possible destruction of their own territories and economies, they all may be more amenable to negotiation rather than pulling some stunt to get the U.S. involved on their side. Those days should be declared OVER.
Other nations may decry the "Fall of the West" and call actually voting on whether to go to war or not a sign of Weakness but the bottom line is that WE THE PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA are tired of spilling the blood of this countries best and brightest for NOTHING and for people who only care about themselves. This includes our own big businesses as well as foreign countries. Our sacrifices have been ignored and our virtues dismissed. We're tired of it and here is the chance we get to state it.
Free trade and non-intervention should return as the policy of the United States of America. We love you all but don’t expect a check.We should stop funding terrorist dictators everywhere and quit exporting our misery creating infernal machines world-wide. That may sound naïve but look at where the current policy has gotten us. No safer, no richer and has won us no real friends.
The world is full of bad men and lord knows we’ve funded quite a few of them ourselves.It’s time to stop this cycle of pain and try something else.
