John Kerry: ‘Don’t Worry, the Arabs Will Bankroll Our War With Syria’

21st Century Wire says…

Just when you thought that US Secretary of State John Kerry couldn’t go any lower, he manages to scout out new depths of political depravity. Now he says he’s prepared to pimp the US military out to his Gulf Arab allies, to fight for their gas fields in Syria…

Press TV reports: “With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assist, the answer is profoundly yes,” Kerry said on Wednesday in the House of Representatives. “They have. That offer is on the table.” 

In response to questions by US lawmakers about the details of the offer, Kerry said, “they have been quite significant. I mean, very significant.”

“In fact, some of them have said that if the U.S. is prepared to go do the whole thing, the way we’ve done it previously in other places, they’ll carry that cost. That’s how dedicated they are to this,” he added.

Nevertheless, Kerry refused to reveal the name of the Arab countries that have offered Washington to cover the cost of its war on Syria as antiwar activists sat behind him hold their red-painted hands aloft. 

A truly pathetic display of leadership from an American Secretary of State.
