John Kerry's Surreal Statement

The Secretary of State spewed yesterday in public on Capitol Hill as he drew a comparison of 15 years of the 21st Century to the entire 20th Century:

"Our citizens, our world today is actually, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally, less deaths, less violent deaths today than through the last century."


Maybe he's counting the dead from the Holocaust?

I don't believe that he is doing so, however.

He's just out-and-out lying and trying to lull listeners into a false sense of security previous to the world's reaping of the whirlwind.

I hate Kerry, and I believe his statement to be disingenuous.

HOWEVER, I think Kerry was speaking in this spirit, when he made the statement he made:

Now, the problem with that statement is that it does not take into account the potentiality of ISIS and a nuclear Iran (hence an expanding Muslim world).

Our problem is,now, a lot like the problems Europe faced in the 1930's.

In the 30's Europe was a relatively peaceful place, but it was obvious to anyone with eyes to see that there was a "Gathering Storm" on the horizon.

Kerry looks out at the dark clouds on the horizon and decides to discuss the relative peace AROUND HIM as being the state of the world.

It is denial, and he is a liar.

But I don't think so.

The Arab Spring has now become the ISIS Nightmare.

This administration's foreign policy is a consummate failure, yet this administration continues to double down and triple down.
