John Kerry: "the Us Is Beginning To Act Like A Poor Nation"

Recommended Posts

The following remarks by John Kerry, borne out of his humiliation over the complete fiasco that was the US intervention in Syria last year and the even greater fiasco that was this year's attempt to get all feuding parties on the table in Geneva, only to see that outcome obliterated as well, appear to be borne out of his disgust at the defunding of the US defense budget, which for Kerry, more than his gross incompetence, is the reason why the US now finds itself in a "new isolationism" leading him to conclude that the US is "beginning to act like a poor nation." One wonders what tipped him off: the fact that the US debt just hit a record high $17,419,220,117,766.69 or that the biggest monetizers of US deficit spending are the Fed, China and just as insolvent Japan?

From Reuters:

Speaking to reporters, Kerry inveighed against what he sees as a tendency within the United States to retreat from the world even as he defended the Obama administration's diplomatic efforts from Syria to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In comments tied to the budget that U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to present on Tuesday, Kerry suggested that tighter spending, in part at the behest of congressional Republicans, may limit U.S. clout around the world.

"There's a new isolationism," Kerry said during a nearly one-hour discussion with a small group of reporters.

"We are beginning to behave like a poor nation," he added, saying some Americans do not perceive the connection between U.S. engagement abroad and the U.S. economy, their own jobs and wider U.S. interests.

Perhaps some other Americans are tired of America acting as Globocop, and as the world's hypocritical superpower dispensing "justice" when it fits its national interests, and ignoring all other conflicts, specifically when Mid-East oil, or the growing Russian sphere of influence is not concerned?

Kerry made the case as Obama prepares to release a budget that will adhere to spending levels agreed to in a two-year bipartisan budget deal struck late last year, entailing some spending cuts the administration would have preferred to avoid.

The U.S. State Department budget will decline slightly in the president's budget submission, Kerry said, saying this was a direct result of the bipartisan budget deal that cut funding further than Obama wanted.

"This is not a budget we want. It's not a budget that does what we need," he said, saying the budget deal entailed cuts demanded by the Republican-led House of Representatives. "It was the best the president could get. It's not what he wanted."

But hold on: wasn't it Kerry's own party that has been urging the defunding of the US defense budget at the expense of overfunding welfare and benefits? The people are confused.

How terrible will the planet be if the US can't afford to interfere?

don't laugh.

if it wasn't for some very brave americans and even madman stalin's wanton tactics the world could truly have been subjected to nazism in all it's glory...and it wasn't just about a few jews at all.

the nazi mindset is corporatism at it's most dangerous...real darwinism at it's finest.

no place at all for the fat, disabled, mentally scarred,compassionate...let alone gay or jewish.....or remotely holding to christian beliefs about the family being the bedrock of society.

...and it does get worse...because hitler himself prophecied of another to come after him, with the same beliefs....so if you think communism is nasty...just wait...

hitler 2.0 is coming to save you from them...and you will all pay homage.

i guess it was gods way to punish evil,with evil on steroids...that's why half of germany ended up in the eastern bloc.

Was that during or after his promised "thousand year reich" - Good at prophecies wasn't he?

If the US interfered helpfully rather than militarily the outcome for many countries may have been welcomingly different. But as it is with their interventions, all that is left is a pile of dead civilians and an even bigger pile of debt.

But that's the whole point of the US interference, to provide big profit opportunities for US banksters and corporations.
