Kerry: No Need For Iran Regime Change

From an approving Agence France-Pressee:

Top US Senator: US no longer wants Iranian ‘regime change’

WASHINGTON (AFP) – The United States no longer seeks "regime change" in Iran and Tehran should respond accordingly by heeding global demands it freeze its suspect nuclear program, a top US senator said Wednesday.

"We are not in ‘regime change’ mode," Democrat John Kerry, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told a hearing exploring the prospects for US President Barack Obama’s new policy of engaging the Islamic republic.

"Our efforts must be reciprocated by the other side: Just as we abandon calls for regime change in Tehran and recognize a legitimate Iranian role in the region, Iran’s leaders must moderate their behavior and that of their proxies, Hezbollah and Hamas," said Kerry…

Yes, assuring them that they have nothing to fear from us will bring around the Iranian leaders for sure.

    And Israel breathes a big sigh of relief…

    Why don’t Kerry and TCO hurry to Iran where they can take turns kissing L’il Adolph’s ass?
    It will be much easier to do in person than remotely.
    I am so sick of our “Leaders” begging and pleading these tin horn dictators to have mercy on us. Whatever happened to Reagan’s “Strength Through Superior Firepower.”
    No one but no one picks on the biggest, strongest, guy in the neighborhood but bullies like L’il Adolf will always pick on the weakest.
    Kerry, TCO, and friends remind me of the weak kneed townspeople in the old western’s; they always begged and pleaded with the bad guys and always ended up getting shot!

    You think Kerry might be related to Biden?

  4. proreason says:

    Everything Iran has said up to this point is like everything Obama says. Lies.

  5. pdsand says:

    I guess all that big talk about us being spread too thin in Iraq making us too weak to focus on Iran was just a bunch of big talk after all.

    Forgive me for saying this, but I don’t think the Democrats can *possibly* be this stupid. And by stupid, I mean *actually* believe the soundbytes they’re giving (ie: if we play nice with terrorists, they’ll play nice with us). I don’t buy it. Our country has pledged $900 MILLION dollars to help the Palestinians, knowing full well that money will fund more weapons for Hamas. We have pushed for a two-state solution, again, knowing FULL WELL that the intentions of Fatah or Hamas (and BOTH are terrorist organizations, founded by terrorists, lest you be fooled by the AP calling Fatah “moderate”) is to DESTROY Israel. There over 200 UN injunctions against Israel for human rights violations, and I think a grand total of 7 against her Muslim neighbors. The UN “peace keeping” forces in Lebanon did everything they could to tie the hands of Israel behind her back, while simultaneously turning a blind eye to the weapons smuggling carried out by Hizbollah.

    My point?

    I don’t believe the Democrats are that stupid. I do, however, believe that they, like the the UN and the rest of world, would like to see an end to Israel. Why? The same reason why the try to shut up any conservative (especially Christian or Jewish) voice that dares to defy them. The EXISTENCE of Israel and the Jewish people make the Bible true. And heaven’s to Betsy, we know that neither our lefty loons nor their Muslim cohorts want to see that.

      Hmm…..I think you’re right. The left freaks out over Christians of all stripes. Yet they suck up to Islamic governments and Muslims who claim to be victimized in order to promote the illusion of “tolerance” and “multiculturalism” on the left, even if Islamic cultures and countries hold barbaric and discriminatory views.

      As for human rights violations, I haven’t read the do-nothing UN’s claims but I can think of several in the countries surrounding Israel that are guilty of such violations. Egypt discriminates against their Coptic Christian population, forbidding the building of new churches. Egypt also mutilates the genitals of girls. Syria finances terrorism and punishes dissidents. Jordan tortures prisoners and lets men who murder their female relatives (honor killing) with light or no sentence. These Muslim countries also ban the immigration of Jews, though the only issue liberals have is with Israel and how to best annihilate the country or restrict its territory….hypocrites, all of them.

    Chamberlain is the new Churchill. At least in the Democratic party, it’s popular to kiss up to dictators and human rights abusers to fulfill the “make the US grovel and apologize for Bush/ Republicans” initiative.

    Thanks Kerry. Your wonderful contributions to our nation include emboldening our enemies and ignoring our friends. ‘Lil Hitler will surely be proud of you when he razes Israel to the ground – or pays Hamas / Hezbollah to do so.

  8. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    Who among them is the greater of fools? The politicians or the people who continue to vote them in? Hamas and Hezbollah will never stop in their violent ambitions unless someone stops them permanently. The only way to win the war against such people is to be a meaner, more ruthless SOB than they are.

  9. VMAN says:

    To quote the great statesman Rodney King “Can’t we all just get along?”. Let all sing a rousing chorus of “Boobs On Parade” featuring Kerry, Reid, Biden Pelosi and taking up the lead Obama!!!

  10. JohnMG says:

    And to think Dom DeLuise died and Kerry is still with us. Is there no justice?

  11. pdsand says:

    I bet he sounded really snooty when he said that too, probably pronounced it “err-ron-ian”.

    And what exactly would moderated behavior of Hezbollah and Hamas look like, would they promise to kill no more than 10 Israelis at any given time? Or would they change their mission statement to read, ‘we will push only half of Israel into the sea’?

  12. heykev says:

    This appeasement policy and no regime change has worked with North Korea, so why should we question it here?

  13. MinnesotaRush says:

    This “stupid is, as stupid does” gang just keeps trying to out-dumb each other!

  14. Liberals Demise says:

    Here is the “PRIME” example of why Term Limits should be in play!!

    Always the hero there John………..you poseur!!

    • proreason says:

      Gotta disagree with you on this LD.

      This is the prime example of why the laws about treason should be enforced.

      This goon should never have been allowed to run in the first place.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      You mean to tell me that you are not impressed with his 3 Purple Hearts and heroic feats in the “River Rats” (Brown Water Navy) during Vietnam?

    • proreason says:

      “You mean to tell me that you are not impressed ”

      I’m impressed by the gall of these criminals.

      But the two most obscene liars of all time are Kerry and the Manchurian candidate in the White House.

      Kerry’s bones should still be swinging from a yardarm in public view, and The Moron should be dealing from the bottom of the deck in a maximum security prison.

    John Kerry is Catholic. Many Catholics hate the jews. The circle that Obama has been with, do not like the Jews. While niether practiced Christianity, in Obama’s Dreams, it was his first attendance of Trinity and Reverand Wright’s radical hatred towards white, that Obama finally felt someone understood him. He does not mention accepting Christ. He speaks of the blood of his ancestors and himself, but not the blood of Christ. While the other leaders, Catholic Priests, disappointed him, he finally found someone who hated the white man, as much as he did. His dream of marxism? Well, even if he were to suceed in a socialist society, he has failed as a true marxist, do to his love of power, wealth, and revenge against a race. It’s all about him, and it’s about revenge on the present for the past. Read his book. It’s all about him. As far as the muslim school, he says they studied the Koran each day. And he says he learned the language, customs, legends in 6 monthes. His mother taught him English, and he took correspondance courses before he went back to Hawii at ten, to live with strangers. He holdsa grudge against his grandparents, because once when his grandma was at a bus stop, and black man was extremely aggressive, very aggressive telling her to give him money, which she did. He’s never recooperated from the fact that instead of saying a man at the bus stop; they mentioned he was black. He took it as racist. Gangs of black that go around acting scary? This is going around “implying” they are trouble. But, it’s okay to make the white man, spillers of blood, and evil, horrible race.
