secretary-of-state-john-kerry-on-would-be-foreign-exchange-students--they-think-theyre-not-safe-inThe fool is John Kerry, who has looked bad in his rushing around between Washington and Tel Aviv trying to get in place a ?framework? agreement between Israel and the Palestinians that would show progress in the efforts of the honest broker, assailing Nicholas Maduro of Venezuela for his ?terror campaign against his own people,? and, of course, denouncing the Russians for their ?aggression? against the coup-regime of Ukraine. His statement that ?You just don?t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on a completely trumped-up pretext,? has to be regarded as an Orwellian classic and may be his signifier in future history books, in the unlikely event that he makes it at all. His punchline has been the subject of many jokes and laughs in the dissident media, but the mainstream media have hardly mentioned it and certainly haven?t made it the butt of jokes and a basis for discrediting the man (just as there has been no discrediting of Madeleine Albright based on her statement on national TV that killing 500,000 Iraqi children via the sanctions of mass destruction in the 1990s?which she helped engineer??was worth it?).
