John Kerry is Adrian Mole: bombing Syria is an ‘unbelievably small’ non-war – more like a conflict
JOHN Kerry says any attack on Syria wold not be a war. It would be an “unbelievably small” war. Tiny. Hell, it wold be a non-war. It would be a conflict, like the Falklands. Or a row. Not even that. It would be a minor disagreement between US bombers and a gas…
And that is the same Kerry, who compared Assad to Hitler and called this a Munich moment, Fallows notes:
The concern all along about the administration’s plans has been the gap between the problem it describes — moral outrage, gassing of children, overall carnage — and the response it is proposing. You can talk about that disconnection: Will an attack make a difference? Might it make things worse? I’ve tried to look into such questions in the posts gathered here. Or you could run back-to-back clips of the same Cabinet secretary saying “this is Munich” and “unbelievably small.” It’s unfair to the admirable and usually eloquent Kerry, but in a moment’s slip-up he crystallized a counter-argument.
John Kerry is Adrian Mole, who wrote in his famous diary:
Tuesday April 6th
The nation has been told that Britain and Argentina are not at war, we are at conflict.
I am reading Scoop by a woman called Evelyn Waugh.
I adore ya.
I implore ye
Don’t ignore me.
