Nobody Will Answer Chuck Hagel’s Phone Calls


scr_hires_130824-M-EV637-483c

First John Kerry couldn’t get Russia to answer his phone calls.

Then Chuck Hagel couldn’t get the Egyptian government to answer his phone calls. Now he can’t get the Ukranian defense minister to answer his phone calls.

Is there anyone who will answer Chuck Hagel’s phone calls?

Ukraine Defense Minister Pavel Lebedev has refused to take multiple phone calls made personally by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, the Pentagon said Thursday.

“Secretary Hagel has been trying, himself, since early this week,” Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby told reporters. Lebedev refuses “to communicate, to accept a phone call” from Hagel or the Pentagon.

“We haven’t been able to connect with anybody from the Defense Ministry there in Ukraine,” he said. “We’ve been trying pretty diligently here in the Pentagon, we’ve been trying pretty diligently this whole week. I’d say it’s pretty unusual.”

It’s not unusual, it’s soft power. It’s what happens when no one takes you seriously anymore.

    I’m guessing that most Western and even Russia-connected countries have put the U.S. on their “do not call” list.

    • gerry

      Yes,don’t call us,we call you!

    Is anyone surprised by this? Obama, Hagel and Kerry are a trio of boy sell outs and soft power foreign policy practioners.
    No surprise here.

  • oneteedoffpatriot

    Great write-up Daniel. It’s really something to see how the world looks at this American administration. It seems the only respect (and fawning) it gets is from leftists in our media.

    • gerry

      You are absolutely right,the world could not care less about the Obama’s administration.There is no respect for the US anymore.Elections have consequences and these consequences will dog the US for decades to come.

  • Eastariel Noneofyo-bizniss

    Dear Mr. Hagel, thank you for helping us find our MIA’s. America must renew its foundation-deep commitment to never abandon anyone, especially America! We Americans must especially never abandon our front-line rescuers, our Soldiers. Thank you for helping our international neighbors remember that America puts America first.

    • A Z

      Your vote of confidence for Mr Hagel is duly noted.

      Now what does that have to do with the matter at hand?

    • Andy_Lewis

      David Duke, is that you?

    • william mony

      Mrs. Hagel needs to stay out of the comments section.

  • kasandra

    Bet Lebedev picks up when Sergei Shoigu calls.

    The obama administration is now a third world banana republic communist facist dictaor ship and the whole world knows it. The US is going down. Will the US people have the cajones to take support the constitution, the military has not done it.

    • Jus’Say’n

      “The obama administration is now a third world banana republic”

      Just look at the articles links tied to this web page (ie “The Sexiest Celebrity Butts”, “SHOCKING: What the Bible says about investing” etc, etc, etc. – and where’s the one about what Miley Cyrus is or isn’t wearing this week?!)….

      It’s NOT about “The Obama Administration” being a Bananna Republic!!! It’s about the Bananna Republic (That America has become) that put him into office to begin with!!!
      AMERICA is the Joke!!!

      You idgets! It’s your own government not the Chinese or Russian that is tyrannizing us. You all sat on your hands and did nothing like the apathetic stupid little cowards most of you are and let it come to this.
      Didn’t speak up until your wallets got slack.
      This crap didn’t start with Obama. He’s the latest in a long line of puppets.
      This debacle has been a long time in the making.
      We are making moves on Russia and China.They may end up fighting us,because our government is attacking them and everyone else on the planet to steal their stuff!

      When you caps lock every third word, the emphasis you are going for is completely lost, it just makes you look like more of an inbred doofus.

  • look2thesky

    Fortunately, every day that passes brings this world of lies and the “lying liars” who “run it” closer to their eventual and inevitable end. I look forward to the time when this filth is no more – Good Riddance!

    • william mony

      So true, this immoral and bankrupt gov’t has no choice at this point to go after its citizens, after a vote of no confidence is soon coming. They will do whatever they can to stay in power. For those morans who elected this tyrant for the Second time, you just put the finishing touches on the old USA.

    • Dave

      WATCH me caps THE heck out of RANDOM WORDS so it looks LIKE I have something to say BUT I REALLY don’t. ARIZONA is the PRODUCT of several generations of RAMPANT INBREEDING.

  • what the F

    And, why should we have any credibility, or friends! We’re a war machine, and if our machine isn’t involved, we have money and/or CIA/NSA assets manipulating everything!

    Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes “500,000 children have been killed” (in Iraq)!

    Madeleine Albright “It was worth it”!

    These are the kind of people who run this country, and yet our military still wars where ever these corrupt liars send them! And they know they are corrupt liars!

    Drones and bombings killing everyone in their paths, be they women and/or children!

    What do we deserve!

      Jeremiah 50:15
      Shout against her on every side!
      She surrenders, her towers fall,
      her walls are torn down.
      Since this is the vengeance of the Lord,
      take vengeance on her;
      do to her as she has done to others.

      Jeremiah 50:29
      “Summon archers against Babylon,
      all those who draw the bow.
      Encamp all around her;
      let no one escape.
      Repay her for her deeds;
      do to her as she has done.
      For she has defied the Lord,
      the Holy One of Israel.

      Jeremiah 51:6
      “Flee from Babylon!
      Run for your lives!
      Do not be destroyed because of her sins.
      It is time for the Lord’s vengeance;
      HE WILL REPAY HER WHAT SHE DESERVES!!!

    • Jus’Say’n

      P.S.
      Yes! 500,000 Children Iraq!
      That says nothing of:
      50,000,000 American Indians
      Millions Slaves!
      50,000,000 Abortions (Only in America – being more or less responsible now for ALL Abortions WorldWide).
      Etc.
      Yea! What does she deserve?!
      Scarry Thought!!!

  • Robert49

    I think it’s because a lot of nations are tired of US Govt double standard when it comes to foreign policy!

    The left and the neo-cons, who really compliment each other, have almost completely destroyed the U.S. The Neo-cons destroy it internationally, the leftist democrat party destroys it domestically.

    • hp b

      By ‘the left’ do you mean the neo-bolsheviks?
      Why is everyone so afraid to say it?
      Oh… riiiiight.

      • Ezra Pound

        The “neo-cons” are an exact continuation of the Bolsheviks. They spread terror in countries they with to take over by destroying the national, cultural and religious institutions of those countries; like they did in Libya and Syria. Ukraine is next up for Bolshevisation. And just the “Russian” Bolsheviks were essentially a Jewish enterprise, today’s neo-con Bolsheviks, and their liberal political backers, are also Jewish-dominated. No “hate” here, either, I’m just telling the truth.

        • hp b

          And I’m just agreeing.

  • Muhammad Abbass

    About time I’d say.

  • Ezra Pound

    The Ukrainian military knows that the Zionist-occupied US government staged the Maiden coup, so why would they listen to anything the kosher gangsters in the Israeli-run Pentagon have to say about anything?

  • Yup

    Yes they have lost respect. That’s what happens when you allow your shadow masters to control everything the country says and does.
