Obama Nominates John Kerry, "Dear Friend" of Bashar al-Assad: A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

A picture is indeed worth a thousand words, particularly with respect to Obama's nomination of John Kerry as secretary of state. Kerry repeatedly visited Damascus on Obama's behalf, dined with the Syrian mass murderer, and "after a motorcycle ride with Bashar al-Assad, he returned to Washington and referred to Bashar as 'my dear friend'" (http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/12/21/1171392/-SecState-John-Kerry-and-his-dear-friend-Bashar-al-Assad).

Yes, I know, Chuck Hagel is even worse. Ed Koch and Alan Dershowitz couldn't see this coming?

A hat tip to Elder of Ziyon (http://elderofziyon.blogspot.co.il/2012/11/john-kerry-to-replace-hillary.html) for publicizing this very telling photograph:


From the National Jewish Democratic Council (http://www.njdc.org/media/entry/kerry122112) on Kerry's nomination:

"“We are ecstatic to see that President Obama has selected Senator Kerry to be the next Secretary of State.

. . . .

Senator Kerry is a true statesman, and his record on the foreign policy issues of special interest to the Jewish community is exceptionally strong. He has been a leader when it comes to Israel and has made it abundantly clear that he—like the Obama Administration—stands squarely behind the Jewish state. On Iran, Senator Kerry has been a prominent voice of support for the Obama Administration’s leadership, and his commitment and knowledge on the subject are beyond question."

The NJDC is "ecstatic"? What kind of "leadership" has been demonstrated by the Obama administration regarding Iran? Why am I so nauseous?

  1. A fool's errand keeping diplomatic channels available when military intervention / invasion would be so much more decisive.

    1. Motorcycle rides through the streets of Damascus and intimate dining with a mass murderer are necessary to keep diplomatic channels open? Had Kerry not accepted these offers from his "dear friend," would the alternative have been intervention or invasion? Diplomatic channels were not already in place, i.e. the appointment by Obama of Ford as ambassador to Syria? Kerry's behavior was disgraceful and indicative of a dangerous naivete unbecoming of a future secretary of state.

  2. There is convenient theory promoted by "convenient" (prostitutional, bigoted, corrupt and illiterate) "left" which goes like this: "It's OK to talk to our enemy and all sorts of monsters. Did we talk to the Nazis?"
    They just don't notice and forget that "we" talked to the Nazis after they were bombed, push out, etc. out of existence. We "talked" to them when the allies were in Berlin and everywhere else.
    One has to explain to them the difference.
