Kerry Provoked by North Korea's Provocative Provocation

Via weeklystandard.com » Submitted On Thu, 02/14/2013 - 5:26pm by 六十四 Cerca

With the detonation of a North Korean nuclear device on Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry has been grappling with his first crisis. Here are his comments in a press avail yesterday.

This is worrisome on 269 counts. That’s how many empty words are present here.  The latest North Korean move, Kerry says, is a “provocation,” which “we have termed and believe” is “provocative.” Is that a tautology or simply redundant?  

More alarming than sloppy talk is the chain of hollow threats that our new Secretary of State is directing at Pyongyang.  North Korea has done something “impermissible,” Kerry says, which warrants “a swift and clear, strong, credible response” from the “international community.”

Kerry says that he has already made numerous phone calls. The only response to this provocation will be more phone calls since we all know that phone calls are a crucial deterrent to the development of a nuclear weapons program.

This statement reads exactly as Kerry talks, just blathering on.

Pour ketchup on it - oh wait, you don`t even own that anymore.
