Video of the Week – John Kerry Accidentally Averts War

I know that reading paragraph after paragraph of writing can get tiring at times; no matter how interesting the writing might be. Thus, starting today and every following Friday, I will post the Video of the Week. This clip will have either the most interesting or most newsworthy video from the previous week’s events. Additionally, I’ll try to briefly explain the context of video  Without further adieu, here is the Video of the Week

I was going to write a post on whether the US should engage in a military strike on Syria. However, my collection of thoughts might have become outdated thanks to the clumsiness of John Kerry. Appearing in a press conference regarding Syria, John Kerry was asked by CBS reporter Margaret Brennan, if there was “anything at this point [Assad’s] government could do…to stop an attack”. John Kerry went off script and said that Assad could turn over his entire arsenal of chemical weapons to the international community.

At first, this weak response went unnoticed. However, Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, decided to take up Kerry on his offer. Putin suggested that Russia could take the chemical weapons off Syria’s hands and the Syrian government seems to have agreed to this deal. Finally, President Obama has said that if the Syrian government complies, they will not launch a military strike on Syria. Crisis averted? Perhaps. We’ll have to wait and see what unfolds. Maybe we should take Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize and give it to Margaret Brennan.

Background on Syria – John Kerry is a Lizard

As you might know, the Obama administration is currently trying to seek approval from Congress in order to engage in a military strike on Syria. To give you the back story, the Syrian people first took to the streets during the Arab Spring of 2011 in protest of the dictatorial rule of Bashar Al-Assad. Since then, the situation in Syria has eventually avalanched into a full blown civil war. At first, Western nations were timid to intervene as Assad murdered his own people in droves. Additionally, two factors have made the situation even more complicated

1) The rebels, which were originally formed by moderate liberal citizens, have been infiltrated by radical Islamist groups.
2) Iran, China, and especially Russia are supporting the Assad regime. Since China and Russia are members of the UN National Security Council, they are vetoing any proposal to intervene in Syria.

At the beginning of the bloody conflict, President Obama had said that the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime would be a “red line” for the United States. Over the past few months, there were instances where Assad was believed to have used chemical weapons but Obama did not act. Finally though, a few weeks ago, videos surfaced that seemed to prove that the Assad regime had in fact used chemical weapons against the rebels. Obama seems to have had enough and has decided to ask Congress for the approval to engage in a limited missile strike against the Assad regime. Many have argued whether a military strike on Syria is the right option. I will discuss that in another post. For now, I only wanted to give a brief back story.

I don’t want to involve too much humor in such a tragic story, but the events over the past few days have brought forward an interesting question. Is John Kerry a lizard? John Kerry is the US Secretary of State and a few days ago he was being questioned by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee regarding striking Syria. The event was televised on CNN. As I was watching the hearing, I noticed something strange about Kerry and it seems like the crew at The Young Turks picked it up too.

What the hell is up with John Kerry’s tongue? Most people would say that its some kind of tick, but I think there’s a very good chance that John Kerry is secretly a reptilian humanoid. After the hearing, I’m sure Kerry went home and had a good time with his son Gecko.

In his book The Biggest Secret, Jon Icke, a British writer, first came up with the conspiracy theory that the world’s leaders have been extraterrestrial reptilian humanoids ever since the beginning of human history. Looking back at how many times our political leaders have betrayed, deceived, and disappointed us, I would say that it is very likely that we’ve in fact been led not by humans, but by reptiles.
