Russian foreign minister won’t return Kerry’s call
« on: February 13, 2013, 04:50:12 PM »
Secretary of State John Kerry called all the foreign ministers of countries that deal with North Korea following Monday's nuclear test and all but one of them picked up the phone -- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
 Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Kerry made his first remarks about the new nuclear test, which the North Koreans warned the State Department about in advance.

"With respect to the DPRK, President Obama made it crystal clear last night and previously in all comments, as have other countries, that North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile program are a threat now to the United States of America, because of what they are pursuing specifically, as well as to global security and peace," Kerry said.

 :popcorn:  Anything to feel important.  Poor Kerry.  Lost to Bush, associated with the silliest idea ever (inconvient truth) and now disrespected by Russia.

Compromise is seen as a weakness as well, it's one reason the RINO are so despised, they always compromise, deal from a point of weakness.
If you hold all the cards in a deal, you'd be a fool to capitulate, yet what do RINO do?
Then we have the Child in Chief bargaining from as if we are the weak ones.
Awwww the days of Carter's stupidity and weakness is looking better and better everyday. :unsure:

Kerry's resume:
1) Weakness
2) Arrogance
3) Despises US military

Obama's response:
Perfect!!!!

Republican response:
Yeah, that should be okay.

On target. Carter is a patriot, but very naive as to reality. I keep hearing that Obama won't do some of things he is doing because of his legacy. These folks are totally wrong. He is not interested in a normal presidential legacy. His desired legacy is transforming this conutry to socialism or worse.

Russia’s foreign minister still hasn’t called Kerry back

As you head off for your Presidents' Day weekend, The Cable would just like to note that it's now been over 72 hours since Secretary of State John Kerry reached out to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov -- without getting a call back.

 As The Cable reported earlier this week, Kerry reached out to Lavrov after North Korea detonated a nuclear bomb on Feb. 11, as well as the foreign ministers of Japan, China, and South Korea. Lavrov, who has been traveling in Africa, is the only foreign minister who didn't answer or return Kerry's call. The State Department is trying very hard not to seem upset about the perceived snub.

"Well, first of all, let me say that we are relaxed. The secretary is relaxed about this," outgoing State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Thursday. "From our perspective, the secretary would like to talk to him. It's up to him whether he wants to take that opportunity."

Today, reporters at the State Department briefing were flabbergasted that it is taking this long for the Russian leader to respond.

"Our daily question about Mr. Lavrov:  Has he returned the phone call? Have you found him? Is he missing in action?" one reporter asked.

"They have not yet connected by phone," Nuland said.

"I mean, this is getting kind of ridiculous, isn't it?" another reporter asked her.

"Look, as we said at that time, as I've been saying all week, we're making it clear that we would like to talk if they want to. If they are too busy or otherwise engaged, the offer stands, and we'll continue to do other diplomacy," she responded.

I think the Russians would rather deal with a tough guy that was at least somewhat honest, than a traitor panty waste like Kerry.
They know that know meaningful deals can be made with a guy that sold out his own country and fellow soldiers.

I thought Hussein was going to be tight with the Russkis after getting caught on-mike saying he could do more after the elections.

Wait. At that time he hadn't named Lurch to replace Shrill. Ooooooopsie!
