John Kerry "Shocked And Humiliated" On First Day Of Middle-East Tour

Tyler Durden's picture




 

John Kerry came, saw and as usual made a horse ass out of himself.

From last night:

Secretary of State John Kerry voiced strong U.S. support for Egypt's new president and signaled that Washington will continue the flow of military aid in an American welcome of the post-coup government.

 

Mr. Kerry said that the U.S. had recently released $575 million in assistance for Egypt's military and that he was confident 10 Apache helicopters would be delivered to Egypt soon.

 

"I am confident that we will be able to ultimately get the full amount of aid," Mr. Kerry said in his first stop on a regional tour focused largely on responding to the crisis in Iraq. "I am confident…that the Apaches will come and that they will come very, very soon."

Then from this morning:

Three Al Jazeera journalists were sentenced to seven years in jail by an Egyptian judge on Monday for aiding a "terrorist organization", drawing criticism from Western governments who said the verdict undermined freedom of expression.

And then:

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that he had phoned Egypt's Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri on Monday to register Washington's "serious displeasure" with the sentencing of three Al Jazeera journalists to seven years in jail.

 

"Today's conviction is obviously a chilling and draconian sentence," he told reporters in Baghdad.

 

"When I heard the verdict today I was so concerned about it, frankly, disappointed in it, that I immediately picked up the telephone and talked to the foreign minister of Egypt and registered our serious displeasure at this kind of verdict," he said.

So... Kerry immediately "picked up the phone and talked" to someone upon this latest public humiliation of the "top" US diplomat. Is it the same someone who will be signing the receipt on the delivery notice of the 10 US Apaches, and the confirmation of the $575 million inbound wire from the US Treasury?

The Guardian sums it up best:

Egypt's military-dominated government has delivered a humiliating, public slap in the face to John Kerry, the US secretary of state, by sentencing three al-Jazeera journalists to long prison terms only hours after Kerry personally expressed his deep concern about the case in high-level meetings in Cairo. The snub represents a disastrous beginning to Kerry's already fraught Middle East tour, which took him to Baghdad on Monday for crisis talks about the Islamist extremist uprising.

 

The verdict, by a court responsive to government wishes, will also be seen as a deliberate, crude signal to President Barack Obama, who criticised Egypt's deteriorating human rights record after the former general, Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, seized power in a coup last year. Sisi has since had himself voted president. His elected predecessor, Mohammed Morsi, and thousands of his Muslim Brotherhood supporters remain in jail while hundreds of others have been killed.

 

In what US officials said were "candid" talks with Sisi, Kerry "emphasised our strong support for upholding the universal rights and freedoms of all Egyptians, including freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association". He noted a number of promises by Egyptian leaders "are yet to be fulfilled", but added that "the United States remains deeply committed to seeing Egypt succeed".

 

The hollowness of all this careful diplomatic language was exposed for all to see by the court's verdict, which diplomats and observers said was reached without the complication of supporting evidence. It seems clear now that Kerry was wasting his breath; the sentences were pre-determined, intended as a stark warning to Egyptian and foreign media and as a symbol of the regime's determination to demonstrate its independence of Washington.

 

This is ironic given that, before the talks, the US had made available most of the $575m (£328m) in military aid frozen by Congress after the coup against Morsi. Kerry offered more blandishments in the form of 10 Apache attack helicopters, which he said would be supplied to Egypt "very soon". This is exactly the sort of deadly air power that Iraq's government has pleaded for but has so far been denied by Obama.

 

Kerry must now be asking himself whether it was entirely sensible to offer such diplomatic, financial and military support to Sisi unconditionally before their meeting and before the court announced its verdict. This is not the way hard-headed, worldly-wise American secretaries of state, such as Henry Kissinger, George Shultz and James Baker, would have gone about it. All old Middle East hands, they would surely have driven a tougher bargain. On the other hand, they would all probably have placed America's and Israel's strategic interest in a strong, stable pro-western Egypt above human rights issues. Perhaps this is what Kerry has done, too.

 

Whatever his reasoning, Kerry's record in the region has been similarly uninspiring. He invested considerable personal prestige, time and effort in pursuing resumed peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, to no avail. This failure was entirely predictable, given the personalities involved on both sides and the lack of new ideas.

Artist's rendering of John Kerry after said "humiliating, public slap."

As for US "foreign policy", just how many other ways can one describe a flaming, slow and increasingly faster-motion trainwreck?

I thought there were laws in place about providing aid to nations suffering a coup?

I know, they are just for the little people and not the government.

When people break the law, it is a heinous crime.

When the government does it, the law was misguided or didn't apply to them because they write the laws.

Frankly I am surprised. I distinctly remember Barry's apology tour and the stop on Cairo where he expressed that he deeply understood the motivations of Muslims globally. I expected that he would short shaft the Israelis and bias towards Muzzie govs.

Instead he has carried Israeli water as much as bush and made the whole ME a fucking plague of subterfuge and dissent. He couldn't have done better job than what he has done if his name had been Obamastein.

Any anti israeli sentiment is kabuki theater and Saudi Arabia, Israel and ISIS all are on the same team. Israel has been ferrying wounded savages to hospitals from Syria for years and as a matter of fact, ISRAELI rations were recently found after an operation to liquidate ISIS rodents was prosecuted by Kurds.

Of course, that assumes the U.S. actually wants to look afterit's own self interests.

The only "rights" Mr Kerry is upholding is the right of the helicopter mfgr to sell their articles of death to the next bidder. Or, more to the point, to have american foreign aid pay for the helicopters which are then delivered to the next oppressor in line. Who was it who said "He's a sonofabitch, but he's OUR sonofabitch."

It is kind of funny because the Pentagon and American military are a bunch of cowards.  In Egypt, they threw Obama's Muslim Brotherhood out. The US Military, intel and Pentagon are NWO, Soros Obama's boys and dupes. Cowards.   Sending American boys to die for the NWO and Obama.

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/06/21/how-egyptians-view-muslim-brothe...

The Egyptian and Syrian Army are not cowards fighting the MB and Al See EYe Aye Duh-ISIS-NWO.

I was at a relatives house this fall and they had a ball game on. I do not watch TV shit.  It was Texas AM or soemthing with Johnny Manziel.  The stadium is full of these young men in uniform probably ROTC or something.  What stupid fux.  How stupid and pathetic as they want to be Obama's little cannon fodder bitches because the Military is filled with cowards who fail to protect the Constitution. Sheep.

Qatar is the font of many of the problems in MENA. The sentences were a message to Qatar. Maybe the journalists should just "man up" and accept their fate?

I would say its more like Qatar wants to switch sides.

The Emir quit and his son took over last year.  No more MB and a planned gas pipieline under the Persian Gulf will make themm part of Team GazProm.

Initial results - World Cup 2022 may be leaving.  US trade sanctions just announced.  Aljazeera, Qatar entity, has their reporters jailed in Egypt for 7 yesrs.  Probably more behind the scenes.

"Germany has decided its gold is safe in American hands.

Surging mistrust of the euro during Europe’s debt crisis fed a campaign to bring Germany’s entire $141 billion gold reserve home from New York and London. Now, after politics shifted in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition, the government has concluded that stashing half its bullion abroad is prudent after all.

“The Americans are taking good care of our gold,” Norbert Barthle, the budget spokesman for Merkel’s Christian Democratic bloc in parliament, said in an interview. “Objectively, there’s absolutely no reason for mistrust.”

Ending talk of repatriating the world’s second-biggest gold reserves removes a potential irritant in U.S.-German relations. It’s also a rebuff to critics including the anti-euro Alternative for Germany party, which says all the gold should return to Frankfurt so it can’t be impounded to blackmail Germany into keeping the currency union together.

@ Kaiser Sousa,

The Germans have just realised that their gold is gone, long gone, and have changed their stance. When sometime, in the possibly not too distant, future the German people (poor sods) get to the truth of the matter the present incumbents of the den of thieves will be long gone with quite a few of them on the payrolls of the Squid and JPMorgue.
