Kerry In Moscow: Assad Can Stay?

Last week John Kerry traveled to Moscow and after meeting with Russian foreign minister Lavrov and president Putin he appeared to shift US policy away from regime change in Syria. Shortly afterward, President Obama re-affirmed that regime change in Syria was the goal. What exactly is US policy toward Syria? Does Washington have a clue?

Too bad the leaders of Nations are so personally invested in the Industrial Military Complex that they create situations where they send in their people to fight their battles. They are a bunch of cowards for not leading the fight on the battlefield. I have been around the world and most people I have spoken to blame the unrest in the world on the leaders.

Huh… ?
Putin must have the means to be quite persuasive.


It's disturbing how John Kerry has became such a statist totalitarian war hawk since testifying before Congress in opposition to the Viet Nam war back in the 1970s. Watch Kerry's antiwar speech and replace some key words in order to make it apply to present day. Kerry, like so many politicians (and citizens) have short memories. As the old adage asserts, the old men start the wars and send the young men to die in them.
