Kerry: "Syria has 1 week to turn over weapons"



So now we're doubling down on stupid... I guess that the WH didn't set this red line either

Also, Kerry completely going opposite of what the Senate committee agreed to in order to get the war mongers on board... Regime change, which he said this would not be.

quote:

US secretary of state John Kerry has given an ultimatum to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad to avoid a military strike by turning over his entire chemical weapons arsenal to the international community within the next week.

At a joint press conference with UK foreign secretary William Hague, Kerry said that America was not going to war but would launch an "unbelievably small and limited effort" to punish the Assad regime for the 21 August chemical weapons attack in Ghouta and to deter it from doing it again.

"If you want to send Assad a congratulatory message, you would support non-intervention," he said although he was sympathetic to fears of the American public who do not want to see troops coming home in body bags.

"But that's not what we are talking about," he stressed. "Military effort will be targeted and short-term."

Kerry added that the only thing Assad's government could do to stop an attack was to turn over all his chemical weapons to the international community within the next week.

"But he is not about to do it and it cannot be done," Kerry added.

No need for the congress to debate the issue or table a vote then. They most likely won't table a vote because the WH knows where the votes are. They're going regardless of what the rest of the country wants.

And I expect code pink and the others to be up in arms and protesting like they did under the Bush administration.

Absolutely a bizarro world we live in.

Also, didn't a report come out yesterday from Germany that they had proof that Assad didn't make the call to use weapons?

They just don't know when to shut up.
I've never seen a bigger bandwagon!

(much the same as they did with their gun control agenda... they kept piling on 'til the bandwagon collapsed)

What is Kerry trying to say? That congress really doesn't matter and we will strike Syria regardless because we feel like it?

He's moving the goalposts. Presumably in an effort to create a confrontation. Assad is in no position to and would presumably refuse to hand over Syria's chemical arsenal.

We're gonna throw an empty shotgun shell on the Syrian shore. If that doesn't get their attention, we'll put up some strongly worded graffiti in downtown Damascus. Stage III is using sarcasm.

Poor Assad doesn't know what's about to happen to him.

Pretty much the same thing we did at Rambioulet, when Clinton was supposedly trying to get the Serbs out of Kosovo, the demand was that NATO could occupy all of Serbia as long as it desired, have immunity for all acts, in effect take over the country, if Milosivic didn't agree to what would constitute occupation and regime change Clinton would be forced to humanitarian bombing.

We are truly exceptional.

As expected, this means Congress will not authorize action.

I wonder how many of the people who voted for John Kerry in 2004 are feeling recriminations after listening to, or reading, these pronouncements. It's too bad Don Knotts died because this message should have been delivered by Barney Fife.
