|The Geneva what?|
"Despite"? Or "because"?
CNN: "State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau said incidents like this one "unnecessarily escalate tensions," adding that the US doesn't know Iran's intentions.
In an encounter Tuesday, a US Navy official told CNN four Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps vessels conducted a "high-speed intercept" of the USS Nitze in waters near the Strait of Hormuz Tuesday, deeming the incident "unsafe and unprofessional.""...........
"Unprofessional"? Their profession is to make the world unsafe.
If their "motives are unclear", you should just ask them. After all, they're your new BesFrens4-Evs, aren't they? Just send John Kerry to the airport after midnight with a briefcase full of unmarked bills; maybe they'll sell him an answer.
Here's John Kerry on his fellow American vets:
"You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."
"American soldiers [are] going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women..."
"[American troops in Vietnam] personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, [blew] up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam..."
Now, here's John Kerry on the Iranians:
"I can tell you that Iran in Iraq has been in certain ways helpful, and they clearly are focused on ISIL-Daesh , and so we have a common interest, actually."
"[They are] able to create a peaceful nuclear program with Iran living up to its part of this bargain and obligation."
"I also want to thank the Iranian authorities for their cooperation and quick response...And I’m appreciative for the...appropriate response of the Iranian authorities. All indications suggest or tell us that our sailors were well taken care of, provided with blankets and food and assisted with their return to the fleet earlier today.".......
Vets get the shaft from Lurch, but Iranians get the Dukakis/Kerry uranium-plated Willie Horton-Get-Out-of-Jail-Free card.
|Iranian Swift-Boaters For Kerry!|
It's happening now because Obama wants it to happen now, while he's still in power to facilitate it.
Obama wants to defeat the rogue terrorist nation. But unlike normal people, he views America as that rogue nation, not Iran.
In that sense, he's strong. Strong for his goal to humiliate and weaken America. His goal--and Iran's goal.
That's why you fully fund the military--Iran's military.
That's why you send reinforcements to Afghanistan--Taliban reinforcements from Gitmo.
That's why you throw away our Surge Victory, handing it over to ISIS and the Ayatollah. With the added benefit of demoralizing our troops who sacrificed so much and discouraging future sacrifice.
That's also why you run the VA into the dirt.
That's why you salt the country with terrorist moles, so as to create a huge Fifth Column.
That's why you decree an Unconditional Surrender deal that provides Iran the cover it needs to finish its Bomb.
And that's why you let our airplanes, ships and troops be harassed, captured and humiliated by our enemies (your friends) with impunity. Even rewarding them for it.
And that's the difference between Neville Chamberlain and Benedict Arnold.
