Putting The ‘F’ In Feckless: John Kerry Praises Russia and Iran


Post By Onan Coca and Jeff Dunetz

If one needs any proof of the ineptness of the Obama/Kerry foreign policy, Kerry’s interview with liberal sycophant Andrea Mitchell will remove any remaining doubt. Secretary of State John Kerry told Mitchell on MSNBC that if it wasn’t for Russia (and even worse, Iran), Syria would have already fallen to Muslim extremists!

Kerry made this observation just a few hours after President Obama criticized the Russians and Iranians for the massacres in Aleppo, Syria.

Mitchell began the interview by trying to get Kerry to beat up on president-elect Trump, but Kerry wouldn’t bite. He did indicate though, that he would be attacking Trump after he takes office.


As she traditionally does with any Democrat, Mitchell teed up a softball for Kerry so he could beat up on Russia and Vladimir Putin with the intention of de-legitimizing the incoming administration, but instead Kerry perfectly explained why we should have done our best to work with Russia and Syria on the problems there, instead of siding with the Muslim rebels most of whom were also tied to Al Qaeda or ISIS (video at the bottom of this post):

Andrea Mitchell: Five years. So many people dead. Displaced millions. The suffering. Russia, the game-changer, a year and some months ago entering with no warning, 24 hours after meeting personally with President Obama, Putin’s planes are flying over Syria for the first time. No warning at all to us. The Russian role has been so devastating in propping up Assad at a critical juncture. Any regrets? You expressed some that were in an overheard audio to some of the opposition leaders. Any regrets that we didn’t arm the rebels sooner, when there might have been a better opportunity?

John Kerry: Well again, Andrea, I’m going to have a lot of opportunities to be able to look back and digest what choices might have been made. I’m not going to do it now… Except to say to you, very clearly, that I’m proud of all the efforts we made to try to lead people to a peaceful resolution. And in fact, the only solution to Syria will be a peaceful agreement along the lines of what we laid out… and the several communiques that we issued, and the United Nations resolution that we passed. 2254. Those will be the basis for whatever happens, if they get there.

I believe there is an exhaustion setting in, sometimes timing is everything in these kinds of negotiations. And I believe that there is a possibility over the course of the next year that the parties could come forward. It would be on a different plane of leverage, a different kind of outcome than some people might have anticipated. But there may be possibilities of trying to move forward…
