John Kerry: Dear Russia and Syria, I screwed up

"So, Mr. Kerry, humor me a bit here. Can you make some sense at least once?"

You just can’t make this stuff up at all. U.S. officials have been acting like children who are having a hard time understanding elementary logic and following consistency in the political landscape. They seem to think that they own this universe, and that everyone has to follow their incredibly stupid ideology.

John Kerry has recently gotten on the political platform and declared that both Russia and Syria have to immediately stop all ground aircraft in Syria and have accused Russia of destroying humanitarian convoys. As usual, Russia asks for serious investigation and evidence, and no one is willing to comply.

On the contrary, Russia seems to have enough evidence such as video cameras where the incident allegedly took place. Once again, U.S. officials do not want to see things like that because that would ruin their reputation as New World Order agents.

The U.S. is obviously trying to regain political ground by blaming Russia for the recent incident because they previously got caught red-handed violating the ceasefire. As Yuri Zinin, Senior Research Fellow at the Center for Partnership of Civilizations of Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), has argued:

“The US is trying to deflect the criticism it was subjected to after the assault on the positions of the Syrian army at Deir ez-Zor [on September 16] by the US-led coalition.”[1]

By the way, the alleged incident really is absurd when you hear so many conflicting and contradictory reports. As Stephen Cohen of New York University and Princeton University has put it, Kerry and others are just following the “war party” script,[2] which implicitly states that Russia is an enemy of the West and that Assad ought to go by any means.[3] Other observers, such as former 28-year veteran of the C.I.A. and now academic Paul R. Pillar, are basically saying similar things.[4]

Kerry said:

“The simple reality is we cannot resolve this crisis if major parties . . . are unwilling to do what’s necessary to avoid escalation. We don’t get anywhere by ignoring facts and denying common sense.”[5]

Dear Mr. Kerry, was it “common sense” for the United States to violate the recent ceasefire in Syria and then blame Russia for the egregious blunder? Who is really unwilling to do what’s necessary to avoid escalation here? Can you please look at yourself in the mirror and “psychoanalyze” your own statements before you utter them in public? Don’t you know that you are annoying people of reason with one dumb statement after another?

Gordon Duff again got it right when he stated: “The US has shown a willingness to sacrifice any credibility of any kind.” John Kerry didn’t disappoint Duff at all. Kerry is just following orders from the Israeli regime.
