With P5+1 talks with Iran just two weeks away, Secretary of State John Kerry took a little time out of his schedule to threaten Iran, insisting that while the US is “prepared to talk” with Iran at the meeting they will take no option off the table, including military force.
Kerry went on to insist that Iran has to address all US concerns or it would face further isolation and other unspecified actions, adding that the US will do “whatever it takes” to stop their nuclear program.
Iran’s existing nuclear program is entirely civilian in nature, a fact the IAEA has repeatedly confirmed. That the IAEA cannot conclusively disprove the notion of a secret secondary program operating entirely separately and located somewhere totally unknown, however, leaves the US deciding Iran hasn’t answered “all questions.”
Every round of P5+1 talks begins with a 2-3 week preface of US officials threatening Iran and adding more onerous demands right before the meeting. It then follows with condemnation of Iran for refusing the deal or, on the one occasion Iran accepted a US proposal, with the US withdrawing the offer and condemning Iran for accepting it.

Read the "Rise and Fall of the 3rd Reich" by William Shirer, and you'll find this negotiating method familiar.
This man is not the furst American diplomat acting as all other American diplomats warning Iran and he is not going to be the last one either. US and EU present "diplomats" will do everything in their power to demonize the progressive governments, anti imperialism governments of all kind and those whom are against us and EU imperial ambitions.., these regimes have shown their faith with democracy by protecting terrorists and states sponsored terrorism as Saudis, UAE and Israel.., we said tat from dau one…, us and EU present government using their last resort helping and supporting terrorism defining their falsified democracy or for that matter their falsified social democracy by supporting tyranni and apartheid regimes. So go ahead senator Kerry.., bring it on let start the war that you are so eager to start. Yet you should know that Syria is not Libya nor Iran is going to bow to your empty threat., many before you have suggested the same idea including Israel.., hence non of you be able to even sideline the unity between Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Russia's and china.., you want change things for better.., reduce the state department budget and give it to social security…, or Medicare or help the us veterans whom are homeless, help people whom are in need with your last gaind millions of dollars.
War what is it goody for…, absolutely nothing.., good god.., senator Kerry.., what is he goody for…, absolutely nothing..,
If anybody wants (honestly) negotiate something he/she must deal in good faith. Iran has every right to pursue civilian nuclear program. Nobody has any evidence that Iran is not dealing in good faith, since all experts are believing Iran has no military nuclear program. Kerry is only playing useful idiot to Israel and Israel Firsters. He is just loosing his credibility from very start. He just sounds like Hellary with a dick. .
American history suggest that it really doesn't matter who is Sec of State. He or she will always be resonsible for invading other nations, assassinating civilians, occupying by force any country who gets in the empires way or destroying them with sanctions or violent coups. The beauty of American Exceptionalism is its ability to produce harm.
shrivled dick & no balls
False bravado.He has to dance for his supper.
Kerry is playting Israel's fool: what's more he's lying through his teeth. He know's that Iran is not making THE BOMB! Now we see the run up to the Iraq war all over again. The U.S. and Israel want to overthrow the government of Iran, as happened in 1952 (3?) to Mossadegh's government. That's all. The play acting on Kerry's part has nothing to do with atomic weapons. After the fall of the present Iranian government (and the Syrian!), Hamas and Hezbollah will be fatally isolated and Israel w2ill be free to complete the founding of its apartheid state in Palestine, with the tacitly vociferous blessings of the US and the EU. The U.S. is, in fact, too disgusting for words: a nasty place with the most unctuous pretentions to compassion, benevelonce, equality. Give me the Saudis any day, Kerry and all the rest clamor! Give me the Sauds, they do our bidding, maybe even when their nationals 'fly planes into buildings. What a crock Kerry is already showing himself to be.
Kerry,s military record still sealed from public view-WHY?
So Kerry threatens Iran without even being forced to by the "Lobby". George Orwell once wrote that the sign of a well trained circus dog is that it jumps through hoops without even being urged to. No wonder, Kerry had no problem getting confirmed – he's a regular trouper.
Kerry — Secretary of Stupidity
“Iran has a choice: they have to
prove to the world that it is peaceful,”
Well now, comes now Empire USA and it to first create nuclear fiction, then demand that Iran prove such fiction does not exist. So, guilty until proven innocent is Iran, and given such an impossibility task to prove that no building is being used to develop, to build or to house any part of a nuke in Iran, forever guilty is any man who owns a building in Iran. Such is stupidity — enough said.
Just another Israeli "butt boy" ….
Johnny's the consummate careerist puke and insider tool. Naturally a "bipartisan" US Senate spread rose petals at his feet and glorified his foreign policy genius. The Jews are beside themselves that this toady succeeded their prior toady
Once a schoolyard bully always a schoolyard bully. This is the current state of American 'diplomacy'.
Hillary with a penis.
“I want to underscore to Iran the
window for diplomacy is still open…”
Comes now our new Secretary of FPBI, Foreign Plunder and Brutal Imperialism, and he to announce what our voting majority will be most pleased to hear, that they will soon be the proud owners of the world’s largest natural gas reserves and the world’s third largest oil reserves.
For Kerry’s job is not to fool anyone, the theft of trillions of dollars in natural resources being such a non fool-able thing. For Secretary Clinton was by the CIA, by the order of paid actor Obama, framed and dumped because she refused to support what she saw as Empire suicide, a quick invasion of Iran to save our economy from bankruptcy. For crude oil now selling for $120 a barrow — surely it be temptation to good to resist.
For half the homes in our Empire being terrific, are they not all owned by the richest voting majority the world has ever known?
And he is supposed to be a diplomat?
No change from Hillary then. Negotiations are the one thing never put on the table. What right has the big nuke bully, which has actually used nukes on people, to stop Iran having civilian nuclear energy (suggested to the Shah by Henry Kissinger, btw)? Belligerent Israel has hundreds; why accept this and disbelieve Iran's assurances it does NOT intend to develop nukes?
The US is deficient when it comes to thrift, patience, and NON violence.
Of course these talks will go nowhere. That's a given.
There will be no "diplomatic solution" to the Iran crisis. The US ruling elites want a war and they'll get it.
Justin is crazy to think Kerry or Hagel are relevant to this march to yet another war. Anyone who thinks Obama isn't going to go along with it for the next four years is also crazy.
I'm surprised he's still kissing Israel's ass! He's all set for the next 4 yrs. Unless he is thinking presidential again. And he will need a good report card from AIPAC!
an issue beyond officialdom
another 'statesman' a vet stands up to pick up the mast of neocolonial oppression. Left out of every new development is what institutions are breeding these monsters who are unable to feel the human misery they are directly responsible for. Kerry Biden Clinton Obama are us senate veterans, and their only remaining reflex is to prostrate before israeli war criminals
MMMMMMM Everybody here at AW.com all over the place on this…. Not like State these days where everyone seems to agree that 5OO,OOO dead [Muslim] children: "We think it was worth it" Hey, a million dead Iraqis from a war of lies and forgeries… replete with not only dead children, but a new twist, sodomized children… Are we having fun yet…. What happened Seymore Hirsh?
Now comes another "recently discovered" member of the chosen… and Skull, and Bones too and take the helm at state. More and more it seems that they are out to do to the Muslims what Nzs did to them… They have learned most of their tricks too. Catch the negotiating style. We have seen this before and it didn't end well for the aggressors… Better people have better plans.. Chosen for the last ordeal by whom?
I think Robert Emmet is on to something with his "Once a schoolyard bully always a schoolyard bully". but the Neocons weren't the bullies, they were their toads. In the end the whole Neocon driven Raison D'etat has taken on the tawdry social pathology of the abused becoming the abusers…. Of the abused claiming absolute authority and latitude to do what it takes to be sure that they are "never again" the victims……. no matter how many they have to abuse to preserve their authority and….. moreover .. their right to ANY(!!!) action… Hey, everything is on the table, right ? Anyone with a brain can see how this movie ends… Anyone but the abusers… who demand our fealty… They have stripped most all our rights or whittled them down to worthlessness.. including the Bill of Rights. They have militarized the police and have turned "to protect and serve" into to knock down and taze. Now they have decided to come for our guns..,… You see they are on a roll… In twelve years they have foreclosed the right to Due process, trial by jury, Habeas Corpus, right to confront ones accusers, presumption of innocence, equal protection under the law, free association, and they have ended the rule of law , if it EVER existed in America.
Skull and Bones operative in action….
Secretary of State (of Israel of course). The US has no Sec. of State anymore. Israel is not the '51st state', it is the 1st! Equal and more to all the others put together. Still, I think they will continue to make noises rather than launch an attack. When the Iranians brought down that drone the US was quite surprised and still can't figure out how they did it.
