A "Laser-Focused" Jonh Kerry Updates On Iraq Situation: "Obama Moving Rapidly To Decide Iraq Response"

Tyler Durden's picture


In case there was any concerns that the US Secretary of State is unable to handle the rapidly moving events in Iraq due to being stuck on his boat (again), here comes the Ketchup heir-in-law, speaking at the London Global Summit to end sexual violence in conflict (!) to diffuse all fears that "just once" the US may not be on top of its foreign policy game:


And just like that, the jihadists who are too extreme even for Al Qaeda, will surely promptly scatter, fearful what drastic sanctions the US will impose on the Al Qaeda central bank and, heaven-forbid, the travel ban that will likely also follow...

And with laser focus, the brain trust has come up with a fool proof plan to protect Baghdad. As I write this, a cargo plane is being loaded with placards, hammers, and nails which will be dropped into the perimeter areas of Baghdad. These placards will contain the message, "Gun Free Zone."

I can't believe this idea required laser focus though.

Largest just means it employs more people, it doesn't mean it's more efficient or effective than a pair of monkeys with typewriters.


I think when people think about organization and authority, thanks to public schooling, they imagine over-reaching and competent professionalism.

It's the image these bastards want on the minds of the masses so that went they "leak" things about how vast their spy network is, it quells a lot of the dissent without actually having to have that sort of intelligence capacity. The Stasi and the KGB both used systematic propaganda of that nature. Rightfully so it was developed by the NAZI's after copying the British forms of propaganda during WWI.


Basically, I think the real psyop is that they have so many people convinced that they have all of this capacity. Likely the truth is that there is too much data to go through. Most of real intelligence work is spent making your enemy think something that is not true.

Sorry this low brow pinhead isn't buying it.

They've had more than enough time/intel to know exactly what was going on and where.

C'mon Nid, this is not one of your best arguments. I have seen you post much better than this in the past.

There is an overall agenda/narrative of the Regime and it does have competency and direction coupled with unlimited amounts of fiat.

No, what I am saying is that you and me will not matter, because they have the majority of the populace convinced that they can do all of these amazing things. Assuming that you are understanding my position here that is. After all, look at all of these movies and this fancy tech that gets previewed on the TV news all the time. The amount of effort used to convince people of nonsense, like AGW. Most of this stuff is propaganda, we already know the CIA and intelligence community itself in general has been involved in making Hollywood movies for at least 20 years now. What better way to push propaganda?

However, my internet connection drops out at least once a month, and I have never seen the government do anything effectively or efficiently unless you count wasting resources. The best comp-sci nerds are in Silicon Valley making money, not in dusty G-man basements. 

When the military invades a country, the US drops millions worth of pamphlets trying to convince the locals that our being there is out of charity, and they keep saying that while walking around imposing curfews, and arresting people for questioning without civil authority. The amount of effort that goes into convincing those people of all sorts of BS is unbelievable. The US government does the same thing when doing policy explorations. That is what those think tanks are for, and why the CFR exists. To exchange information from polling data and strategy changes.


Government can create all sorts of things out of thin air with a stroke of pen, but you can not fake competence. Loyalty and competence are two opposites. Competent people do not need to be loyal to one sole employer, they are good enough to attract the attention of better or more lucrative employers.

There is no question that the leviathan of .gov is a slow moving, dimwitted beast.

However, their inability to move quickly and efficiently is not to be construed as their Achilles heel.

They have indeed allied themselves with and are running lockstep with the Googles and MSs of the world and are using facism to expand their dominance.

When CEO's of major corporations are meeting in groups like the Bilderbergers and CFR and TriLats, we have a lot to digest and this does influence my thinking and actions.

It does not blunt my resolve and steely determination to thwart this, but I have to incorporate it into my strategies.

To do otherwise is foolhearty and detrimental to our and our children's future if you are liberty minded and believe in a constitutional republic.

I have resolved to be diligent in my push against this madness in a peaceful and thoughtful manner until I can't and the dam breaks.

Then all bets are off...

So why didn't we just pump all the god-damned oil out of the country when we were in control for those 10 years? It's what we were after the whole time anyway.

Ah, the old CIA / MI6 - 1953 Iran playbook. "What's our is ours, what's your is negotiable", right? We should have never invaded Iraq in the first place. Their oil is their oil. America has this mindset that the rest of the world is its service station and that it can do whatever the helll it wants, take whatever it wants to power its empire. No wonder the rest of the world is weary of the US. A strong case could be made that while Saddam was a turd Iraq was better off with him. Just ask the 500,000 children that were killed trying to get rid of him.

They actually did say that initially.   The oil would pay.  But the RINO plus Dem faction of our polity went with "if you break it you fix it" and then we proceeded to blow a trillion bucks and 5000 American lives trying to fix stupid. The Arab culture, and resulting Arab people, are highly inbred by endless centuries of cousin marrying.   They are tribal, premodern, and continuously frustrated.  It would take a century or two of occupation to reverse any of that, and given our domestic politics, that's not going to happen.

Bullshit. The jobs that illegal immigrants fill depend on the middle class having enough discretionary income to pay them to clean their houses, cook their restaurant food, mow their lawns, etc. But the middle class is shrinking, which means not enough jobs to keep the current illegals employed, let alone millions of new ones every year. When the stock market rolls over and dies later this year or early in 2015, the knee-jerk reaction of what's left of the middle class will be to clean their own house.  There will be no reason for illegals to come to this country any more

Okay, let's take your assertion at face value and ignore the restaurant, hotel, leisure, and domestic help space. Do you think government will be expanding its workforce when tax revenues crater due to the death of the middle class? Big Ag is moving to robots and will do so more and more. Another big source of illegal immigrant work is home construction. That's going to go down too.

My point, if you would take your blinders off, is that at best the demand destruction that is coming will maintain the current level of illegal immigration work, but in order to absorb millions of new illegal immigrants every year there has to be an expanding economy which will not happen.

The reason we aren't stringing them up is that for most people the status quo, or some semblance of it, is still holding. They still have their jobs or their disability payments. They know something is wrong and aren't happy with the way things are going, but they want to hold on to what they have so don't want to make waves. The key from a perception point of view is the stock market. Combine the constant string of foreign policy fuck-ups with an economic/stock market downturn and the public will turn nasty real quickly.

There is only one solution, unless your preferred course of action is to STFU... TO KILL PEOPLE.

The only questions are 1) who does the killing, 2) who gets the killing, 3) and when does the killing stop (and each is complex multifaceted question).

Until both Americans and Europeans can understand and publicly speak that simple truth, they will never be able to defeat any enemy (which bodes quite well for those they deem "enemies" within their borders).

And thats why the people need to rise up and demand we stay the fuck out of it- just like we did with Syria which has only been made worse by our supporting the rebels with arms.

I appreciate your energy and sincerity. But if "We the People" rose up and demanded we stay out of Syria why then are we 'in' Syria? We have special forces with boots on the ground in Syria, we are providing weapons and training, we are running overflight surveillance etc.

This is staying out of Syria?

Regardless of what "We the People" demand, the powers will do as they wish......if not now then later after another trumped up reason is manufactured. All that remains is the illusion of citizen's will being followed by 'leadership'.

Actually professionally speaking the correct course of action is not to wait on orders but attack (see below.)

That would be across "the entire Front Line" actually.

That stretches all the way from Southern Libya...!!!!

"Before it was just Syria."

Now we really might have "the New World Order."

Yeah...that too!

"I gave all my students a D- because I'm the moron!"

One look at Wall Street says to me "they're not paralyzed" though.

And one could argue the Service Chiefs have nothing to lose by simply ordering "attack" here at this point.

Maybe we are heading towards a coup?

I'm no friend to any U.S. President over the past decade plus, but ignore Kerry for a moment. (Anyone who talks tuff to Ed Snowden after numerous proofs he was right is a pant-waste anyway)

U.S. Would be best to steer clear of this disaster. It is always damned if it does and damned if it doesn't. Enough policing the world! If the Euro-crats are appalled at the "humanitarian" situation there they can send in their military. We can't keep getting pulled into conflicts that drain our resources and tarnish our already dirty world reputation.

If the people of the Middle East ever want to take on self-government, let them do it themselves and, in the process, learn the massive sacrifice that is involved. You cannot mold people into your image when they do not truly yearn for it themselves.
