Deconstructing John Kerry’s Latest Big Lies
by Stephen Lendman
Kerry is a notorious serial liar, a disgrace to the office he holds, an unindicted war criminal, indifferent to human suffering.
On Wednesday, he addressed the National Defense University in Washington on US foreign policy – concealing its global horrors.
He praised Obama’s State of the Union address, calling it “bold and ambitious,” ignoring his duplicity, demagoguery and ruthless agenda – Kerry complicit in his high crimes.
“(T)he demand for United States leadership…for what (Obama) called the most powerful nation in the world is as high as it has ever been,” he blustered.
No country is more feared and despised. Its endless war agenda threatens world peace. Its war on freedom heads America toward full-blown tyranny.
“The president’s primary responsibility…is…to protect…the American people,” Kerry claimed.
He’s done more harm to more people domestically and abroad than any of his predecessors – serving wealth and power interests exclusively, letting popular needs go begging, waging endless wars of aggression, supporting ISIS and other terrorist groups.
“…America will remain more engaged in more places around the world than at any other time in history,” Kerry asserted, without explaining its pure evil agenda – seeking global conquest, risking potential humanity destroying nuclear war.
“The goal of keeping our country safe” comes at the cost of threatening world peace. America seeks “way(s) to lay the groundwork for security and stability for decades to come,” Kerry duplicitously claimed.
Violence and chaos serve its agenda. Peace and stability defeat it. Kerry lied, saying he “see(s) a world…in critical areas…coming together” – ignoring endless US direct and proxy wars slaughtering millions, causing vast destruction, responsible for the greatest refugee crisis since WW II, appalling human misery he’s indifferent to.
So-called “progress” he claimed on vital issues is nonexistent. Today is the most perilous time in world history. America’s imperial agenda risks WW III – unthinkable with today’s super-weapons able to kill us all.
Washington bears full responsibility for global hot spots, conflicts without end, out-of-control violent extremism – creating and supporting terrorist groups, training its elements in the fine art of committing atrocities, recklessly confronting Russia and China.
Kerry’s claim about Washington “mobiliz(ing) (an) international coalition…to degrade and defeat…Daesh” is pure rubbish. Its so-called bombing campaign against it exclusively strikes Iraqi and Syrian infrastructure and government targets – serving as its air force, not adversary.
Kerry turned truth on its head, saying “progress we have already made towards…defeating (ISIS) is undeniable.”
US airdrops provide its fighters with weapons, munitions and other supplies. US special forces aid them. Pentagon terror-bombing targets hospitals and other civilian sites.
Kerry’s claim about America’s “best traditions” ignores endless horrors it inflicts globally. Peace is anathema. No nation in world history ever threatened humanity’s survival more greatly.
Kerry is a geopolitical front man for endless unspeakable high crimes, representing rogue state ruthlessness.
His new book as editor and contributor is titled “Flashpoint in Ukraine: US Drive for Hegemony Risks WW III.”
