John Kerry's Lost Syria Speech

After John Kerry's speech concerning the American response to the Syrian gas attacks, an earlier version of the speech was discovered in the notes he left on the podium.

Today, I'm here to tell you that without a war going in the Middle East, the United States is a lost ship without a compass. I ask you, who are we as a nation if we aren't killing brown people?

It's a fact; if we don't bomb Syria, Syrians will bomb Syrians. And its a fact that killing is bad, unless America does it. It is our duty, as a nation, to prevent further bloodshed, especially the horrifying bloodless bloodshed caused by chemical weapons. It is essential that we replace obscene Arabian bloodshed with righteous American bloodshed.

Kerry's coup de etat: Tried to authorize Syria bombing w/o Obama

Kerry's coup de etat: Skull & Bonesman John Forbes Kerry Tried to authorize the bombing of Syria without President Obama's explicit authorization back in the spring. This was just as the Syrian spring counteroffensive all but destroyed al-Qaeda's fighting capacity in central Syria with the fanatical resistance of Qusair.

This vile breach of power by Kerry is not without precedent. In 1999, Vice-President Algore similarly gave the order to bomb Jugoslavia during the collapse of the al-Qaeda assassination offensive against Serbian officials in Kosovo. Bill Clinton was out of touch with reality owing to his multitudinous scandals, and, though having survived impeachment, was in no condition to lead. Algore presumed to fill in the vacuum but at the expense of standing law.

We are all richly familiar

We are all richly familiar with John Kerry's real ambitions.

No doubt he's acutely aware of exactly where he stands in the line of succession to the presidency, and makes a habit of leaving banana peels on the White House steps.

Ah yes, old Yalie Bonesmen are all alike!

Ah yes, old Yalie Bonesmen are all alike! Word has it that, as undergrads, brother John F. and brother George W. used to practise their grenade toss with eggs from the rooftops of the dormitories along York Street on unsuspecting non-Bonesmen strolling happily along on fine fall evenings.

Bonesmen prepare for careers in indiscriminate mass murder in the most playful and innocuous ways!

It was a decent speach

He says we're talking.. that's good.


he speeked reel gud.

He never mentioned war

Putin is threatening thermo nuclear war and that must make you really thrilled, eh?

Cmon, a global theatre nuclear exchange would ruin the olympics!

C'mon, Grange! A global theatre nuclear exchange would ruin the Sochi winter olympics!

(Unless, of course, that untrustworthy scum Navalny is right and its cost is like $400 billion and the Russian state is about to go bankrupt because of the theft and graft. In which case, nuclear extinction would be a convenient distraction.)

But I reckon this whole Syria biz is more worrisome for the good face of Russian athletics than a dozen Edward Snowdens.

Thank you for the laugh

:D truth is funny

You're welcome. But I'm on vacation 40 miles from Sochi

You're welcome. But I'm on vacation 40 miles from Sochi and nobody HERE is laughing, I can tell you.

In fact, I gotta keep my head down and my mouth shut the last couple of days lest I get accused of being an OBOMBA worshiper, and get accosted by self-righteous punks who usually have nothing to do except sit on park benches and drink.

Last night

I watched Putin's acceptance speach, and I thought, it is a small crowd.. I got the feeling the election was as contrived there as it was here.. and I believe that, perhaps as usual, it's not the people, and maybe not even Putin and Obama, but what they represent, which is money, that pretends it is the life blood of people.

I've met Russians here.. all good people, talented people. I've seen films that show Russia has a drug/alcohol problem as we do, youth that are wasting away because this corpprate surreal society that has no place for free thinkers, which youth has many, and many are victims of parents that have too many problems to deal with their child's problems.

Where I live, I think many people fear Obama.. they will go along to be part of the majority..

I believe you that no one is laughing.. I saw vids about Russians being interveiwed about Snowden, and many were quite outspoken calling Snowden a spy and a theif and they didn't want him in Russia.

I hope you are having a good vacation.. I'm sure it is beautiful there at this time of year.. and hope you return home safe and sound to global peace and not what many fear or say to induce fear.
