Once again, the Odummer Administration is playing the blame game. Secretary of State John Kerry took a swipe at another U.S. ally this week, this time pointing the finger at the United Kingdom for the Obama administration’s struggle to enforce the “red line” in Syria – a week after he slammed Israel’s government over settlements.
I can’t say that I blame Putin, go for it. Russian President Vladimir Putin has castigated Turkey’s leaders, warning that they will regret shooting down a Russian Su-24 bomber in Syria. In a state of the nation speech, broadcast live on Russian television, he said that “if anyone thinks Russia’s reaction will be limited to trade sanctions, they are deeply mistaken”.
Kerry is another chickensh**, just like his boss. Secretary of State John Kerry has canceled a planned trip to Moscow next week to discuss the ongoing crisis in Ukraine with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He was scheduled to travel to Russia on Wednesday and Thursday before the Munich Security Conference.
On Saturday, Syria said, it was willing to participate in “preliminary consultations” in Moscow aimed at restarting talks next year to end its civil war but the Western-backed opposition dismissed the initiative.
The UN has released its report on the chemical weapons attack in Syria last month, but Russia is denouncing the findings, saying they are all one sided. Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov also said Wednesday that Syria has provided new evidence revealing that rebels were the ones who carried out the deadly attack last month outside Damascus.
The remarks came after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also questioned the U.N. report, saying there are “serious grounds to believe” the incident was a provocation carried out by the rebel side.
