England is carefully left unmentioned now that it has dropped out of the race to Damascus. So that apparently leaves Turkey, Australia and our oldest ally, the French.

The Arab League pledged, quote, “to hold the Syrian regime fully responsible for this crime.” The Organization for Islamic Cooperation condemned the regime and said we needed, quote, “to hold the Syrian government legally and morally accountable for this heinous crime.”

Turkey said there is no doubt that the regime is responsible.

Our oldest ally, the French, said the regime, quote, “committed this vile action, and it is an outrage to use weapons that the community has banned for the last 90 years in all international conventions.”

The Australian prime minister said he didn’t want history to record that we were, quote, “a party to turning such a blind eye.”

The Arab League is Saudi Arabia. And entirely Sunni. The OIC is Sunni dominated. So Kerry is quoting Sunnis encouraging a religious war against Shiites which we should have no part of.

Turkey is an Islamist Sunni terror state that arguably began this whole fight. Australia’s government is so dysfunctional now that it’s worse than France. Kevin Rudd, the man Kerry is misquoting was forced out and then came back in after suffering from all sorts of issues.

So that leaves our oldest ally. The French.

Now the French didn’t say what Kerry quoted, because the French are a people, not a politician. Kerry, who prides himself on his knowledge of French, ought to know the difference.

If Bush had said something that stupid, Michael Moore would turn it into a documentary. But Kerry, well everyone knows he’s a man of nuance.

    The same clueless gobshite as usual.Leave Kerry and his life artwork to America’s thousands of Vietnam veterans who loathe him with intensity enough to let us all off any responsibility to join in.

    There will be a shakeup in the intelligence community if Kerry is proven wrong about who used poison gas. He will have to resign in shame along with Susan Rice.

      Yeah, right! If Kerry and his boss, Emperor Obama are proven wrong they’ll place the blame on unidentified political enemies who manipulated the truth in an effort to sabotage the glorious work of the people’s progressive dictatorship. NOTHING is every the fault of a progressive. They are always lied to and/or taken advantage of…Hell, they may even “establish a link” back to it being Bush’s fault….

    Royal France was our oldest ally. The French Republic was our first enemy. Please see the quasi-war with France. Jean Francois Kerry is an ignorant buffon.

    • Gee

      2nd enemy – the British were first in line

        Touche.
        I was thinking of the US under the Constitution,

    How can the Assad government gas its own people, even though those same people happen to be the ones waging jihad against him and his government? Am I missing something? Indeed, that is something I never quite understood ever since this jihad first broke out, yet that is exactly how it is presented to us by our so-called MSM including Fox.

    In addition, while the press erroneously claims that Assad has murdered 100,000 of his own people since the jihad broke out, the claim is also that those people were innocents. However, since jihad is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims in one form or another, those so-called innocents weren’t actually so innocent after all, as they were all jihadists in one form or another exactly like all other mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are as well.

    The truth is we don’t have a dog in this fight, as both sides of this jihad are our eternal enemies. Exactly like we didn’t have a dog in the fight in Afghanistan as well. Thus, if we must do anything at all, how about supplying both sides of this jihad with chemical weapons, as the more jihadists that are killed on both sides of the equation the better off all non-Muslim infidels will be. It’s better they become sidetracked by killing each other than by them killing infidels.

    Hence, I’m sorry but I don’t have an ounce of sympathy for those 100, 000 dead jihadists killed in Syria on both sides of the equation so for but somehow only blamed on the Assad regime by our so-called MSM, which is pathetic.

    And the Australian Prime Minister quoted will not only not be Prime Minister this time next week, but there is a good chance he will have lost his Seat in Parliament in the process.

    France is our ally. Our armed forces and intelligence routinely collaborate..perhaps not as close as Britain but a close…just like a good friend who will tell you when you’ve had too many drinks and are acting like an asshole, France has a voice and isnt America’s lap dog..sometimes there are diagreements and there are left wing parties and right wing parties just like in America…so get over it…France is our ally and has a strong Armed Forces..at least as good as Britain’s so stop all the whining

    As an Australian, I enjoyed this: “Australia’s government is so dysfunctional now that it’s worse than
    France. Kevin Rudd, the man Kerry is misquoting was forced out and then
    came back in after suffering from all sorts of issues.”

    It’ll be okay, though. We’ve got an election on September 7 and it’s almost a forgone conclusion that the conservative Liberal party will win, and Tony Abbott, leader, is opposed to intervention. So that leaves Turkey and, uh, France.

    • Nowhereman

      As you’d guess, our current Labor government is Leftist. Funny, when things go wrong in the Western world, no matter what country, it’s always the same mob responsible.
