Kerry Protests while Kiev Burns (Video)

Kiev turned into a bloodbath Thursday, with anywhere from 70 to more than 100 killed and dozens of policeman kidnapped by protesters.

The violence, similar to that in Egypt, Syria and other countries where social protests quickly turned into street battles and all-out war between regimes and demonstrators, has again left the Obama administration looking weak.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry last December protested the violence of government forces against protesters and failed earlier this month in his intervention to solve the political crisis that has exploded into deadly street battles.

The European Union has voted for sanctions against the government, and the United States has issued a visa ban on 20 senior government members considered responsible for the attacks on anti-government protesters.

Kerry last December expressed “disgust” at the violence, and now Vice President Joe Biden this week announced his “grave concern.

“We call for utmost restraint,” said Kerry. “Human life must be protected. Ukrainian authorities bear full responsibility for the security of the Ukrainian people. As church bells ring tonight amidst the smoke in the streets of [Kiev], the United States stands with the people of Ukraine. They deserve better.”

The State Dept. just doesn’t get it that no one really is listening to what he has to say.

    If this was happening in Washington DC what would our administration do?

  2. Edward Lobel says:

    Alan, Just exactly what do you expect the US to do about this situation? Send in troop? Bomb Kiev? Aside from an arms embargo and a general embargo just what do you think you would do if you were in charge?

  3. Edward Lobel says:

    Alan, If this happened in Washington, The local DC Police would handle this. I would expect the police to be a lot more tolerant then the police in Kiev. I would hope that there would not be "live" ammunition in their weapons.

  4. Alan Kardon says:

    Edward Lobel I didn't ask what we should do in Kiev.

  5. Edward Lobel says:

    Alan Kardon You asked about what would happen if this happened in DC, I responded.

    What is the purpose of your question if not to try and relate it to the subject the article was about.

  6. The cowardly Kerry…again! This unfortunate man just doesn't get it…he has allowed himself to be made a stooge…again, by POTUS Obama.

  7. Alan Kardon says:

    Edward Lobel And how do you expect from the rioters to behave?

  8. Alan Kardon says:

    Did you expect him to change?

  9. Edward Lobel says:

    What kind of question is that? The would probably all go to your house for some milk and cookies! (LOL)

  10. Edward Lobel says:

    the only stooge on this page is you!

  11. Edward Lobel says:

    Alan Kardon Kerry may or may not be a lot of things, but one thing he is not is a coward! He has a distinguished military career which points to bravery and no being a coward!

  12. Alan Kardon says:

    So the people we pay to protect us should just let the rioters do what ever they please. Shows how well thought out your thinking is. Glad I do not need you to protect us.

  13. Why would anyone listen to a famous traitor of his own country? Anyone with a speck of common sense sees through Kerrys phoney remarks to the clear reasons he is talking and that is to try to push himself and his boy king obama to the news highlights as world saviors and leaders. Only a simple fool who listen to the sad and foolish noise Kerry makes.

  14. Carlos Font says:

    A late comment on the Kardon-Lobel "fight". Mr.Lobel, Kerry has anything but a distinguished career in the U.S.Navy. He left his boat and crew after only 3 months of a year tour by feigning a couple of scratches. I was in VietNam at the time and remember all rhe details. He then joined up with our biggest traitor, Jane Fonda, and in a domonstration threw his medals over the White House fence. I've no use for Swiftboat Kerry. Mr. Durham from Alabama is right.
