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.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington
