Kerry Insults France, UK, Canada, Israel in One Speech

indonesia-apecjpeg-03c8d_s630x429

The State Department repeatedly refused to name Boko Haram a terrorist organization, urged the government to pursue appeasement policies and even threatened the Nigerian government for daring to fight them.

Now Kerry is beating his sunken chest while insulting a whole bunch of other countries.

The United States is alone in helping Nigeria locate more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by Islamists, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday, despite help on the ground from Britain, France and Israel

“Boko Haram, Nigeria, only the United States is there offering the assistance to help find those young women,” Kerry said during a dinner at the State Department.

“Other countries not only aren’t they invited, but they didn’t even offer. That’s a difference, and I think it’s a difference worth dwelling on.”

However the United States is joined in Nigeria by Britain, France and Israel, which have sent their own experts. China, which saw 10 citizens likely abducted by Boko Haram in a region bordering Cameroon, has also proposed to help.

Also Canada appears to have sent some support.

The Canadian government announced more than two weeks ago that it was sending surveillance equipment and personnel to Nigeria to help search for the schoolgirls who were abducted by Boko Haram extremists. It later emerged that Canada was also sending special forces’ soldiers as further support.

Then in a stunning betrayal, Kerry lashed out at his own homeland.

In his speech, Kerry also lashed out at France, whose Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has expressed regret that the United States did not attack Syria a year ago amid spiraling violence in the conflict there.

“People are angry because we did not strike Syria at one instance but guess what: Today, 92 percent of all the chemical weapons in Syria are out and being destroyed and the other eight percent will get out,” a visibly angry Kerry said, without mentioning France specifically.

“That never would have occurred otherwise.”

It hasn’t occurred anyway. Anyone who thinks that Syria has given up the majority of its chemical weapons is… well John Kerry.

The UK is not exactly thrilled with the snub. The French enjoy diplomatic fights with the US. And the Israelis couldn’t possibly hate Kerry anymore. But there is something strange about Kerry using a State Department dinner to demonstrate the opposite of diplomacy.

It’s the kind of thing Democrats expected from Bush.

    Did nominations for the peace prize just close? Or can he, the man of resentment, not help himself?

      He can still win the Nobel Prize for Fiction.

        No. He will win the “No-Ball” prize……. for depending on his wife for his allowance.

  • Douglas J. Bender

    “Today, 92 percent of all the chemical weapons in Syria are out and being destroyed and the other eight percent will get out.”

    “92%”. One wonders at the exquisite precision of such a number, given the circumstances. One would think that if the U.S. (or anyone) could reasonably trust such a precise figure, they would have the ability to immediately identify and/or eliminate the remaining 8%.

    • Ib4N8R

      they are trying ‘so hard’ to get the other 8% back into the bottles. The victims are not cooperating and returning the missing materials and are refusing to answer questions. They are still working at extracting the remaining missing materials from the atmosphere…

    What an embarrassment and a disgrace.

  • Yosef Ben Tzvi

    A putz is a putz forever. Why aren’t we just ignoring him? Hussein Obama does.

    • RevnantDream

      That makes perfect sense. Even the Russians couldent meet him.
      They don’t cater to special needs billionaires.

  • DVult

    Nobody sane would join any venture this imbecile was a part of or cooperate with him in any way or even bother talking to him for that matter.

  • Gee

    The Americans aren’t even in Nigeria helping – they are in Chad over 1,000 km east of Nigeria with an entire different country between them.

    • darnellecheri

      I do believe at least 50 American “experts” have teamed with British experts in Nigeria, and more were expected to arrive.

      • Gee

        According to the US – they sent all their experts and aircraft to Chad. Unless something has changed America has no personnel on the ground.

        Also the US State Department still refuses to call Boko Haram terrorists

        • victoryman

          Right on target. The interesting (Non reported in our state run media) fact is that the first nation to respond in Nigeria was Israel.

  • darnellecheri

    Spain offered assistance to Nigeria as well. There are limits of Pentagon assistance to the Nigerian military as they are considered human rights violators.
    For the life of me, I don’t understand how and why Kerry would make this incredible statement?!

    • kikorikid

      A “Shariah Compliant” proxy slander
      against the West?

  • pete

    most people have hated kerry for years

    glad somethings been done to reduce the inequality

  • kikorikid

    OK, I cringe when I have the thought that, John Kerry,
    represents America to the rest of the World.
    I’m in a major cringe right now. I think it is
    shame that I feel.

  • De Doc

    Obama Inc. – kowtowing to feckless and/or Janus faced ‘allies’ and driving away long time and solid allies.

  • Maggat

    It’s the kind of thing Democrats expected, but didn’t get, from Bush.

  • nicky9999

    Blimey! And I honestly believed that politicians could not b3 worse than the dross currently in operation in the UK. TRUELY FRIGHTENING.

    • dukestreet

      Are you kidding? The present U.S. administration has to be the worst ever. They have an organizer in chief instead of a commander, and he can’t even organize.

  • herb benty

    Arrogant intellectualism as on display with this Example called John Kerry gives more support to the old adage, ” there is no fool like an educated fool”

    • victoryman

      Very true, Herb B. However, there is another quote to consider which applies 100% to Mr. Ketchup Kerry……Goethe stated, “There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.”

      • herb benty

        That was excellent! And your Goethe quote is even more appropriate as these twits are in positions of POWER. “Frightful indeed!

  • Abberline

    A sobering thought is that in 2004 a few thousand votes in Ohio and that *^&^%&%&^$ jerk Kerry is President of the Untied States. yet how much worse than Obama would he have been? Although he would not have had his race to hide behind.

  • Richard Martin

    I have to say that Kerry looks like some befuddled old man who has just wandered in off the street and found himself in the middle of some ethnic festival. Everyone there studiously ignores the poor old sod.

  • windy132

    Kerry is like one of those clowns Leno used to interview on the streets. Where is Canada? Somewhere near Mexico, isn’t it?

  • cocoon

    Kerry and the facts/history are often on different sides.
    He is a perfect fit in the Obama Administration as he will say or do anything, whether true or not, to a desired end.
