Diplomatic Frauds: Kerry, Power, Kirby Lying and Shilling for ‘Body Bags’ and War in Syria

When US Secretary of State, John Kerry on Thursday said there was ‘no point’ in pursuing further negotiations with Russia over Syria, you had to question on what basis this man is holding his current position as the nation’s highest ranking diplomat.
Really? No more diplomacy? At this point, even a conservative assessment would have to grade his performance as a failure.
Regarding Russia, Kerry proclaimed, “We are on the verge of suspending the discussion,” adding, “It is one of those moments where we’re going to have to pursue other alternatives for a period of time.”
At the time of his statement earlier this week, Kerry was not clear what those “other alternatives” would be, but yesterday, a new leaked audio presented by a New York Times journalist seems to answer this question…
According to a leaked taped conversation acquired by The New York Times of a backroom meeting at the United Nations General Assembly recently, it demonstrates beyond any doubt that John Kerry has never been interested in a “diplomatic solution” to the conflict in Syria. Quite the opposite: his priority has always been to topple President Bashar Assad by military means and through the implementation of a ‘No Fly Zone’ which would most certainly give a tactical advantage to US and Gulf-backed terrorist proxy fighting groups like Al Nusra Front, Arar al Sham and others.
“I’ve argued for use of force. I stood up. I’m the guy who stood up and announced we’re going to attack Assad because of the weapons, and then you know things evolved into a different process.”
There it is: after all the diplomatic doublespeak, the underlying US policy is and always has been regime change.
More shockingly, he then told a US-backed opposition operatives that, “you have nobody more frustrated than we are (the US)” that the Syrian conflict is now being solved ‘diplomatically’ – a clear betrayal of his job description, but also of the fundamental principles on which the UN was founded.
Kerry also added further insult to injury by admitting that both Saudi Arabia and NATO member Turkey are financing Wahabist terrorist fighters on the ground:
“The problem is that, you know, you get, quote, ‘enforcers’ in there and then everybody ups the ante, right? Russia puts in more, Iran puts in more; Hezbollah is there more and Nusra is more; and Saudi Arabia and Turkey put all their surrogate money in, and you all are destroyed.”
In the audio, Kerry keeps referring to the “opposition” but is careful never brackets the confab of terrorist forces on the ground in that conversation, thus making the theoretical fantasy of a ceasefire somehow viable in his own parallel universe.
The reality is that if Syria and Russia grounded their airforces in a ceasefire, then Al Nusra Front, Jaesh al Fatah, ISIS and other terrorists (many of whom are armed by the US) would simple step-up their own advances and attacks on civilian and SAA protected areas. The US knows this, and would like to see that happen for reason revealed now by John Kerry in this recording.
Something else in the tape was significant. After saying that Russia ‘do not observe international law’, Kerry then admitted that, “Russia was invited in (legally into Syria)” while the US were not.
Incredibly, Kerry also admitted that, “Hezbollah are not plotting against us (the United States)”, and that, “Hezbollah are being targeted by the opposition who we (the US) are arming and training.”
Now, leaks are rarely if ever accidental in Washington, especially when a pro-Obama Administration newspaper like the New York Times are involved in the operation. Is Kerry trying to extricate himself from this 5 year-long foreign policy debacle? With Washington’s crown jewel in the destabilzation project, Aleppo, due to fall any time now, perhaps he might be opening an intermediary exit door for this Administration from the current losing path to partitioning Syria. Time will tell.
Listen to this incredibly informative leaked audio here:
Kerry’s off-record conversation was apparently with two dozen ‘Syrian civilians’, all from US backed opposition-linked NGO’s in education and medical groups supposedly working in ‘rebel-held’ (aka terrorist-held) areas in Syria. This opposition conclave also included ‘rescue workers’ which can only be ambassadors from the White Helmets, a pseudo NGO which serves as Washington and London’s primary PR front in pursuit of a “No Fly Zone’ in Syria, and it’s being bankrolled by the US, UK, EU and other coalition states to the tune of well over $100 million (so far).
Meanwhile, both Kerry and Power continue to try and cloud their own sabotage of the international ceasefire agreement by blaming Russia and Syria for hitting a UN Aid Convoy. Shade of East Ghouta in 2013, with yet another false flag attempt orchestrated by the same actors. As it turns out, their case against Russia and Syria in this incident was fabricated by the White Helmets, their ‘moderate rebel’ terrorist accomplices and NATO oriented ‘investigative bloggers.’
Of course, Yemen is the other elephant in the room for the US in terms of its dirty dealing and bloated weapons contract troves overseas. Presently, the US is aiding and abetting a rogue state in Saudi Arabia – who is doing exactly as Nazi Germany did in 1939 – attack its neighbors in an undeclared war of aggression. And, in response, the United Nations is doing exactly what the impotent League of Nations did in the late 1939, which is nothing. This might have something to do with the fact that Saudi Arabia has literally purchased its seat at the head of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC).
