Syria has ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and promised to move forward with a plan within 30 days on the destruction of its chemical arsenal, which will be placed under international control for the duration of its (likely long) process of dismantling them.
Instead of treating the deal as a movie-style happy ending, Secretary of State John Kerry is grousing about the war it has apparently foiled, lashing the deal as “not enough” while pushing the idea that the US might still attack Syria unilaterally in spite of the deal, seemingly just for the heck of it.
Kerry says President Assad’s agreement to the standard international process of dismantling chemical weapons is totally unacceptable because Syria “isn’t standard,” and insists that the US attack could still happen if Assad doesn’t agree to some totally unspecified, less realistic timetable.
The 30 days isn’t something Assad just made up, either, but actually an explicit part of the CWC, just one that annoys Kerry personally, since after several weeks of pushing for a war based on a putative violation of “international norms,” he insists the norms don’t apply to Syria anyhow.
Though some analysts are presenting this as Kerry “testing” the seriousness of the deal in talks with Russia, it is reading more as an attempt to sabotage it outright. With Kerry the primary proponent of the hugely unpopular war that now isn’t happening, the chip on his shoulder and his decision to spurn diplomacy just read like sour grapes.

Dr. Frankenstein, your monster is out of control again.
The regime of Neo "democrats" have no other option but to support the leader of the barbarians from Saudi Arabia and to support Israel apartheid regimes for two reason, there is no democracy coming out of the Democratic Party and democratic leaders are so corrupt that they have lost the people trust, therefore they need to work for Saudis and Israeli government.
Kerry is O.O.K. Odious Oaf Kerry……… Look at THIS John Kerry…. <a href="http://.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yixdveuf0GQ” target=”_blank”>.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yixdveuf0GQ
What happened to him…???????? How did he turn into THIS vile CREATURE LUSTING FOR WAR AND DEATH FOR OTHER'S daughters and Sons………… How did this happen…?????? This grotesque caricature of that brave young man speaking truth to an impossibly corrupt center of American power………..
P.S. The jerk presents zero evidence to prove Assad responsible…………… Wants us to take his word
What happened to him was the White House Reality Distortion Field. The only solution to this architecturally embedded problem is to paint it black realism over night while blasting the Rolling Stones song.
I can thing of a few competing solutions………… !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
He just look uglier then back in 60s. In those days he wanted to become a democrat against war, now he wants to remain democrat for wars.
Heinz hubby meanz bombz.
So here we have "Mr Ketchup" once again licking his ass because the war that didn't happen leaves him and his trainer Obama with egg on their faces.
Mr Ketchup has maintained all along that Syria must abide by International rules unless he and the
usurper Obama decides otherwise.
It is a real question to me why the other countries of the world just don't say to the USA…SHUT the
F… up and go home and clean up your own country. Stop killing innocent women and children every day with your illegal drone attacks, stop intercepting private messages and finally, re-establish the constitution in the USA.
The members of Congress, Senate, Supreme Court and Obama are all losers and they should all be fired.
I'm starting to wonder if goonlike Kerry has gone rogue. He and Obama have been playing good cop/bad cop for awhile now. If Kerry is sticking to the Obama playbook, he is sure making himself look ridiculous in the eyes of the world. Maybe that is Obama's intent, so that he comes off as a statesman in comparison. In fact, it appears that Kerry has lost all credibility by now and should resign to try to regain his sanity.
Is there no one who can sue this chap for instigating violence against a sovereign state. He is totally out of line. He keeps calling for bloodshed, the MSM gives him coverage, he claims he wants Syria to conform to International Standards while he violates them out of hand. Perhaps it is time Syria actually approaced the ICC, the US may not recognise its legitimacy, but if convited, hopefully he will be under "house arrest" and forced to stay within th USA. That would be better than nothing.
Rich boy says why do things peacefully when you can use vile threats and bombs. I want to be remembered as Kerry Khan the scourge of America.
Hillarious. This embodiment of Lurch disengages brain, strays off message in the UK, makes a suggestion that will resolve the problem, then claims it was a russian idea and now disowns it. You couldn't make this up. This is as disingenuous as the US suggestion a few years back that would have seen Iranian nuclear fuel enriched outside Iran by a third party which would mean an end to their lawful enrichment programme. The yanks expected Iran to reject it out of hand and so were happy to give the green light to Brazil South Africa, and I think Turkey to negotiate with the Iranians. The Iranians said yes and so the yanks promptly disowned the idea infuriating the BRICS nations who'd worked hard on it. And the USA got away with yet another ghastly piece of hypocrisy.
Somebody give Kerry a G.I. Joe doll.
This is straight from the FDR playbook: you will get your war if you make continuously more extreme demands and are never satisfied by any concessions. See "Day of Deceit". On this point, we're reliving 1940-41.
We have seen this tactic in action on the part of DC for decades now. For many years, they had to use it sparingly. Now, however, they think there is no consequence to using it all the time.
Regarding 1941, don't forget FDR's twin policy in the Atlantic – the US Navy's involvement in the convoy battles and the "Shoot on Sight Order."
This is not meant as rhetorical flourish, but rather very serious — are a majority of the people in Congress on some kind of psychotropic drugs? Their behavior is like that of a sociopath, lacking in empathy and able to lie with no pangs of conscience.
yes…they are high on self-defined knighthood, continuously fed by the fawning MSM to believe that whatever they say is important and that they've been tasked (by being elected) to ensure that America dominate the world, forcing their version of "being American" down the throats of people trying to live their own lives their own way. And if the rest if the world objects, then according to the electeds, they deserve to be bombed into submission. As for empathy, they have had that gene removed from their essence once they were elected…standard operating procedure.
Bloodthirsty criminal. Tripped up by his own hypocritical doings and now wants to weave his way back to spilling blood. Anyone who's a bit curious about this viper should check out an article that is available on Counterpunch titled :What John Kerry did in Vietnam.
The Obama administration, Kerry more than most, were indifferent to Syria's stocks of chemical weapons before last weekend. Their newly found enthusiasm for securing those stocks, not only ASAP, but Sooner Than Possible, is transparently manufactured. The desire of the administration remains that of the governing class since the early 1990s: as General Wesley Clark has reported, that is to reshape the Middle Eastern and Asian map by destroying the governments of seven states. The Syrian accession to the Chemical Ban Treaty is a galling delay in the larger plan.
Having been exposed as an absolute idiot, and totally unconvincing, a liar (Putin was right), Kerry is back to talking tough, behind a bullet-proof screen. He has no idea how he is perceived. Syria said it will sign the CW treaty and list its CW and allow custody to pass. That should be the end of it. But since Kerry and Obama couldn't achieve that, they must try to save face by continuing to act the schoolyard bully
Well, John; if you really feel that strongly about it; here's your rifle, and here's your parachute. We ran out of desert camo but here is a bright day-glo orange jumpsuit left over from Abu Ghraib for you to wear. Watch your head climbing into that transport, and we'll call Assad and tell him you are on your way to kick his butt all by yourself.
But We The People know the claim that Assad gassed women and children right in front of UN chemical weapons inspectors on the very day they arrived was a lie to trick us into war with Syria, just as the claim about having to support Libya's "revolution" were a lie to trick us into war with Libya, just as the claim about Saddam's nukes were a lie to trick us into war with Iraq, just like the claim about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin were a lie to trick us into war with Vietnam, just like the claim that the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was totally unprovoked and a complete surprise was a lie to trick us into WW2, just like the claim that the Lusitania carried no war material was a lie to trick us into WW1, just like the claim that USS Maine was sunk by a mine in Havana harbor was a lie to trick us into war with Spain, etc. etc. etc.
We The People are tired of living under a government of habitual and unrepentant liars. If the FSA are your friends, YOU go and help them. We The People are done with slaughtering innocents around the world, and losing our own children in the process in war after war started with lie after lie.
We are tired of being made fools of in front of the world by the US Government.
The United States who signed the Chemical Weapons agreement was supposed to have destroyed their VAST arsenal by 2012. We now have moved that date to 2020. Seems to me that if the United States can destroy their own arsenal as per our commitment…how should the Syrians do it in thirty days and why should they? Russia is also remiss in its agreement to rid itself of chemical weapons.

Isn't hew called a DIPLOMAT, America's highest DIPLOMAT? Can anybody give me the definition of a DIPLOMAT?
Deport this unpatriotic mouthpiece for Israel, and the military industrial complex. He can take McCain, Graham, and the speaker with him.
Kerry's constant words of war show him to be an irrational madman. Obama needs to yank the Secretary of State's choke collar and tell him to shut up or remove him from office.
God, these people are insane.
This guy is a demon. Are people still not getting that He was running against another demon, Obama? Are people still not getting that elections are set up from the get go? Goodness folks. We just need simple farmers or good folks as Presidents. Not secret society skull and bones Zionist lawyers. Damn…
Cash n' Kerry, the White Swan, wants to relive this glory days of receiving two Purple Heart medals for bumping his head on his boat's overhead and by shooting himself while firing wildly into the jungle not noticing there was a huge boulder about twenty feet away. Massacring Civilians R' Us.
He's bound and determined to start a war regardless of facts, common sense, or the will of the American people.
