John Kerry was and is a traitor to the American fighting forces and the basic principles that our country is founded upon. Being a retired combat veteran myself, from a few years later and a different venue, I understand what it takes to work together as a team, and to stand side by side with your fellow man. I have worked with and stood next to some of the finest this country have to offer. I would like to believe I speak for many when I say that John Kerry was, in fact a traitor and still is, both to his country and to the bravery of our fine fighting forces.
Let’s start at the beginning of our Secretary of States’ career. As an officer, John Kerry was put in charge of men, young men of honor and perseverance who were sent to fight and die in a hellhole called Vietnam. Kerry spent his time there taking every step he could for personal and career gain, and the integrity of the agenda he was given was secondary. The main focus for Kerry was to write up as many medals as he could for himself and get out. In the book “About Face” Colonel David Hacksworth, shows while there were many fine officers that served there in all branches of the military, John Kerry stood out and continues to stand out as a poor example of what an officer should be.
There has been much written about his going to Paris to undermine the accords at that time, as a panderer to the Viet Cong. His “Winter Soldier” testimony at the Fulbright Commission was nothing more than an attempt to undermine the war and his fellow soldiers. He was once again, looking out for himself and using the publicity to further his own career. The two miserable people I remember from that time are John Kerry and Hanoi Jane Fonda. Neither, I can say with certainty to ever be forgiven by the brave and loyal men who served in our fighting forces, that day or ever.
As a Senator, Kerry continued to undermine our country by meeting with the Sandinistas in Nicaragua in an attempt to secure a “peace” in which he sided with the terrorists. Over his entire career he has sabotaged every opportunity that our country has had to turn back those who move forward in the destruction of freedom in vast areas of the world. Kerry is of the type too prevalent in this administration that feel that peace can only come if freedom loving people step back and allow the terrorists to win. Kerry seems to think, like Hillary Clinton, that activity means results. To gain those results you must gain the respect of those you are dealing with. Nothing in Kerry past would cause any discerning adversary to give this man even a modicum of respect. A loudmouth who echoes the talking points of Americas enemies for almost half a century, Kerry is a perfect fit for the progressive Democrat party of today. Failure in dealings with ISIS, Assad, North Korea, Iran, Russia and many other terrorist regimes only further proves that John Kerry is still first and foremost out for himself, to burnish his resume and still considers himself the only smart diplomat that our country can depend on in his own mind.
Kerry has met with Mahmoud Abbas along with Timochenko the head of the narco-terrorist group FARC. Even knowing that Timonchenko has a five million dollar bounty on his head from Kerry’s own State Department, Kerry felt that giving land and security over to these men was the gift that was expected. Abbbas then met in the White House with our Muslim in chief for two hours. Kerry did not bring peace, but threats and blackmail from the terror organizations he scurried off so fast to meet. Giving up prisoners for peace, the Israelis counted on Kerry to assist in the transfers and received nothing but more terrorism. Of course, Kerry blamed the Israelis.
Kerry has been the lackey for these terrorists. Like the little boy that no one wants, he sits at their feet on the floor admiring Assad, FARC, Iran and the PLO in a futile attempt to gain acceptance for his mindset that is anathema to everything our country stands for.
The latest Kerry attempt to throw another democratic country under the bus, much as he did with his fellow soldiers is based and lies and omissions of real facts. His speech was based on an agenda of treating the Israeli people as second class citizens, and to place the blames on them, rather than on the Palestinians.
To this day, following the orders of this administration and the progressives in charge, there is still no admission of the terrorism and attacks in the streets of Israel except in passing. Even then, it is the Jews fault, because they will not back down from the sovereignty of the country they have fought so long and hard for.
Kerry stated that “Israel can be Jewish or Democratic. It cannot be both. This strikes me as a special kind of stupid. Israel since the inception has been a democracy. In his speech he stated that the Israeli government is the most “right wing in Israeli history”. Arabs and Jews live together is a harmony that Christians are not allowed in Arab States.
Our Muslim in chief has declared that there can be no peace with a Palestinian terror state alongside Israel. Kerry dutifully sewed this during his speech without understanding that there can be no Palestinian terror state next to Israel because the Palestinians along with the rest of the Arab world want to wipe Israel off the map. Blaming Israel for not making concessions is just ludicrous. They have always given up Gaza, which led to nothing more than an increase in the rocket attacks. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert offered a good portion of Judea and Samaria, historically Israeli lands to the Palestinians, and land swaps linking this territory to Gaza. The deal was refused by Abba, the same man that Kerry is trying so hard to placate.
The settlements, argued over and causing a great wringing of hands by both Kerry and Obama are not illegal. If they were to be turned over to the Palestinians it would be as before, the Jews would be attacked and murdered in pogroms to make the entire area free of Jews. There are over a million Arabs living and working Israel, how many Jews or Christians for that matter would the Muslims allow to live in their territories?
We must also remember that this is also the same administration that is giving aid to the Palestinian government and attempted to boycott weapons in the outbreak of the Gaza terror war. Not mentioned by Kerry was the forgotten Israeli settlements that were abandoned by force to give to the Palestinians. The Israeli government forcibly removed settlers in Gaza and we rewarded with rocket attacks from the areas that they turned over to the Palestinians.
This debacle, pushed by this administration in the Security Council and passed because of a petty and narcissistic Secretary of State and Muslin in chief being too cowardly to veto it and protect the only democracy in the Middle East will stand as an impediment to peace . Perhaps that is what the Muslim Brotherhood lackeys in this administration were looking for, another fine war to settle the American people into.
It is informative, that even Democrats such as House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer is telling the White House to stop, to shut up, and let the two sides figure it out. The United States has long maintained that the agreements reached must be between the two sides of the conflict. It must be negotiated between the adversaries, not by the United Nations, not by the United States and definitely not by this administration. In particular, but a Secretary of State that panders to terrorists, or a Muslim President that allows them to flourish.
