John Kerry is a loose cannon and loose cannon sink ships (or can cause war in Kerry’s case).
“The top US diplomat made headlines by saying negotiations with Assad’s regime were necessary to end the bloody conflict now in its fifth year.
“Well, we have to negotiate in the end,” he said, when asked by CBS television if he would negotiate with the Syrian leader.
Kerry’s spokeswoman later stressed that the comments indicated no change in US policy, saying “there is no future for a brutal dictator like Assad in Syria.”
But Syrian state television immediately flashed his comments as breaking news when they emerged on Sunday, and other media touted the remarks as a U-turn by the US administration.”
News flash, this isn’t a U-turn in U.S. policy, just Kerry saying another stupid thing that indicates how far below his capabilities are from those needed for the job he’s in.
