US Secretary of State John Kerry last week called for immediate US airstrikes against airfields under the control of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime – specifically, those fields it has used to launch chemical weapons raids against rebel forces, Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Goldberg reported.
Kerry presented his plan during a principals meeting in the White House situation room, but Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey “threw a series of brushback pitches at Kerry, demanding to know just exactly what the post-strike plan would be and pointing out that the State Department didn’t fully grasp the complexity of such an operation,” according to the report.
As America’s top diplomat he should not be calling for ‘immediate’ airstrikes. Diplomacy is suppose to be the counterweight to war. It is the generals who call for war, not your top diplomat. To be a diplomat means to talk, not to bomb. I am calling for the immediate resignation of John Kerry as he obviously does not give two hand fulls of crap about peace and diplomacy. he is as war hungry as anybody in the Obama administration. Its an absolute disgrace to all peace loving Americans. You do not represent me or my views Mr. Kerry. You should read a book and rediscover what it means to be a diplomat. Your obviously a political appointment and have no idea what it means to talk peace. Someone should start a white house . gov petition calling for this man’s resignation. -Mort
