Kerry: Russia Must “Literally” Disarm, State Department, Don’t Take Him “Literally”

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On June 27, 2014 @ 7:47 pm In The Point | 4 Comments

This administration and its foreign policy are literally a joke. Literally no one takes them seriously.

With the clock running down on a ceasefire between Ukraine’s government and pro-Russian separatists in the country’s east, Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday called on Russia to show, “in the next hours, literally,” that it was working on disarming the militias.

Hours later, however, a senior State Department official said the comment “shouldn’t be taken literally,” as Kerry simply intended to underline the urgency of the situation.

Announcing that Kerry shouldn’t be taken literally is now a default position at the State Department.

When Kerry discussed an “unbelievably small” strike on Syria, the clean up crew had to come out. Then Kerry suggested that Syria disarm. The State Department rushed out to explain that Kerry was joking. Then Obama liked the idea so State had to explain that it was joking about the joking.


America really missed out on a fantastic four years from 2004 to 2008.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
