John Kerry gets Zero support for Syrian non-war from ‘our’ Middle East ‘Allies’

Lerch has been once again tooling around the Middle East, searching for “the willing” to support Obama and his almost plan. The Brits, Germany and Turkey were quick to say “count us out”. They have had enough of this foolishness. The Libya and Egypt fiasco should have taught all of “the willing” how far throwing in with a loser will take them. Still looking for someone to put those ole boots on the ground. Why would Egypt and the UAE even be involved after just a few weeks ago, Obama and the EU reamed them out for trying to save the Tripoli airport from the Terrorists. Recall this nonsense?

Obama’s wacko Libyan policy. Attacks UAE and EGYPT for trying to save Tripoli? August 26, 2014

The New York Times, citing unnamed American officials, reported that neighboring Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have launched airstrikes against Islamists in Libya twice over the past week.

The US and EU governments “strongly condemn the escalation of fighting and violence in and around Tripoli, Benghazi, and across Libya, especially against residential areas, public facilities, and critical infrastructure, by both land attack and airstrikes,” the statement said. (They tried to save the Airport from the terrorists)

But I digressed.

To understand and to try and figure out who these “willings” will be and how Lerch is making out, I turned to the foreign news sources. So let’s take a look at what the Turkish media has to say about how the so-called coalition is working out. How are our friends stacking up?

The header reads:  Arabs back anti-ISIL statement as Turkey abstains. Let’s look at how the words are parsed. Grab this one first:

Squabbling among Washington’s allies in the region has complicated efforts to present a united front to beat back the militants.

Saudi Arabia, the Emirates and Egypt are at odds with Qatar and Turkey because of the latter two countries’ support for the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups in the region.

Egypt’s foreign minister, Sameh Shukri, emphasized that rift in his opening remarks, saying regional chaos is the result of a number of factors, including the tolerance of some in the region and the West with “so-called political Islam” – a clear dig at supporters of the Brotherhood.

Salman Shaikh, the director of the Brookings Doha Center in Qatar, said the Sept. 11 meeting was important because it signaled a U.S. reengagement in the region – something many Mideast allies feel has been lacking under the Obama administration.

“How the U.S. can play this role will be absolutely crucial,” he said. “It has to act as a keen leader for its friends and allies, but also act as a referee between Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Iran, particularly when it comes to the issue of Iraq and the issue of Syria.”

Key Arab allies of the United States agreed Sept. 11 to “do their share” to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL),promising to take action to stop the flow of fighters and funding to the insurgents and possibly to join military action.

NATO member Turkey refused to join its Arab neighbors in their public pledge, however, signaling the struggle the West faces in trying to get front-line nations to set aside political feuds and work together against a common enemy, according to the Associated Press.

The announcement followed a meeting between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his regional counterparts in the Saudi Red Sea coastal city of Jiddah. His visit, on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, was aimed at pinning down regional allies on what support they are willing to give to U.S. plans to beat back the ISIL, which has seized large chunks of Iraq and Syria.

The meeting ended with Saudi Arabia, other Gulf states, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon pledging in a joint statement to stand against terrorism. They promised steps including stopping fighters and funding, repudiating the ISIL’s ideology, providing humanitarian aid and “as appropriate, joining in the many aspects of a coordinated military campaign.”

The first clip gives us a flavor of the meeting and a view of the lying characters involved. The short second clip is even better. No wonder no one wants to get involved in this nonsense.

John Kerry to CNN: U.S. Is Not ‘at War’ with ISIS

Published on Sep 11, 2014

CNN’s Global Affairs Correspondent Elise Labott caught up with Kerry during a summit in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia Thursday and asked him if America is “at war” with ISIS, “because it sure sounded in President Obama’s speech that we were.

    The Middle East sees Obama for what he is and that is inept and clueless, so they are unwilling to help us even though we are being told there is going to be this massive coalition. Bush was pilloried for going it alone and yet there was a coalition supporting us. None of this is ever mentioned in the MSM. Again, I feel like the whole world is backwards.

    I’ll bet that Barry and horseface were the same in grade school. Bootlickers that never could get anyone to work with them because they had bent over so far, too often that they were incapable of having any semblance of a spine.

    USA Gov. – when was the last time it was ‘really For the People’? Seems like ‘the people’ are used to execute globalist plans and agendas – that have nothing to do with anything good, only resulting in increasing control, power and $$$ to those select few. Instead of watching/listening to the ‘sock puppet pawn leaders’, viewing the bigger picture of ‘why the elites’ want ww3 is more of the target. That’s why they have to cause another ‘impact false flag’ to legitimize moving ahead w/ their delayed plan in Syria.

    Great post, my friend! Well, we have to give credit to Obama for one thing. His “Leader From Behind” doctrine is catching on. Now all of our “friends” and “allies” also want to lead from behind.

      Thanks Jim. Yet the AP is reporting that there are 40 “willings” but no clue about what they are willing about. The MSM is for the most part focusing on”The meeting ended with Saudi Arabia, other Gulf states, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon pledging in a joint statement to stand against terrorism.” That and 50 cents does not get one “Boots on the ground”. And am I sick of that expression. How about blood and treasure?


  5. Petermc3 Says:

    Its comforting to know Lurch and Zero are on the same page(note sarcasm): It’s ISEL (Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon -bye bye Israel) not ISIS; we are not at war; and we support the harbingers of the Arab Spring, The Muslim Brotherhood. The only fool who would follow this pip squeak president is sitting in the Oval Office. The disgraced Joint Chiefs of Staff sit quiet and the congress licks Obama’s boots. He has us right where he wants us. Now how does he and Kerry get weapons to the “moderate rebels” in Syria and overthrow Assad; that is the next task at hand.

      Another red line that will make Obama end up the ass he is. Instead of lining up “the willing”, he assumes they are as you say, lick his boots. This may be a trap for the GOP. Don’t go there. Please. Let Obama hang out to dry.

    Whoa, someone has got their number.
