Incredibly and Incendiarily White House Press Secretary John Kirby States the U.S. May Have to “Bomb Russian Cities”!4

As Secretary of State John Kerry and as our Ambassador at the UN, Samantha Power, in an act which is a reflection of utter hypocritical double standards, threaten undiplomatically and recklessly Russia with military action due to the horrific bombing of Aleppo, which must stop, stunningly more so is the statement of White House Press Secretary John Kirby, uttering provocative and dangerous words which have been unheard of even during the era of the Cold War with the USSR.
First of all, no nation is allowed to bomb innocent, unarmed civilians anywhere, since this is considered universally the worst crime against humanity imaginable, and it is a most serious war crime.
Secondly, the U.S. and Great Britain, and Saudi Arabia, and Israel are all guilty of this crime.
The U.S. and Britain, are enabling supporters of the barbaric aerial bombardment by Saudi Arabia of Yemen, which thus far has resulted in the death of some 6 thousand mostly unarmed innocent civilians, which includes some 1 thousand children.
The U.S. and Britain are selling Saudi Arabia billions of dollars worth of armaments, notwithstanding the fact that the Saudi Arabian dictatorship (euphemistically called “monarchy”) is by far one of the most, it to THE MOST egregious violator of human rights of the world, as it uses beheadings in the same way ISIS (Daesh) uses it, and as it uses mutilations on humans guilty often of victim-less crimes.
Thirdly, the U.S. is guilty of an accessory to this crime, as it unconditionally provides $ 3.8 billion dollars per year to a state which is a barbaric violator of Palestinian human rights and which is documentably a violator of international law as it sits on Palestinian land which it invaded, and occupied.
In the Summer of 2014, Israel committed the Gaza massacre which led to the death if close to 3 thousand mostly unarmed innocent civilians including some 500 children, and all along two-faced Hillary Clinton and others have repeated the bizarre mantra that Israel has a right to “defend” itself, when the mere existence of the Gaza’s largest blocked concentration camp in history of close to 2 million people is a clear sign of Israel’s “offensiveness”.
In Palestine, in Iraq, in Syria, in Afghanistan, in Yemen, and elsewhere, innocent people in schools, hospitals, and other buildings, have been savagely bombed, the most recent one being the deliberate slaughter by Saudi Arabia, of an airstrike targeted on a funeral in Sanaa, the Yemeni capital which killed 100.
And now, most incredibly, and recklessly in the most dangerous and incendiary way, the White House Press Secretary has had the temerity to declare that the U.S. may have to
“ carry out attacks on Russian cities “.
Captured on published video on September 29, 2016, titled US Spokesman John Kirby threatens Russia with “more body bags, attacks on Russian Cities” he spews forth these insane words which vulgarize the notion that such public statements by White House officials, whether they are stupid bluffs or not, have the potential of escalation which could lead eventually to a nuclear war, something which must never happen as no one “wins” such a war.
Uttering these “fighting words” actually constitutes speech which is NOT protected by the U.S. Constitution, as is clearly spelled out in the ruling of Chaplinksy v. New Hampshire.
Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire, 315 U.S. 568 (1942), is a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court articulated the fighting words doctrine, a limitation of the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech.
Press Secretary John Kirby’s insane statement should have been headline news if the corporatized mainstream media had not become derelict of its duty to inform the American people, and he should be immediately fired for such reckless violation of social responsibility.
The sudden hysteria – generated surge of Russia demonization which was particularly bizarrely intensified when with the revelations of egregious wrong-doing in the DNC’s scandalous attempt by top officials to sabotage the Bernie Sanders campaign, and which Hillary Clinton equally hysterically blamed the Russian government for, to generate a smoke screen over the content of the e-mails documenting the scandals, has to be brought under control as most of the accusations have none or specious grounds.
Most importantly though is, as a variant of the song lyrics go; “what the world needs now is peace sweet peace” and for that to begin to happen a global summit gathering at the UN must be convened immediately which must focus on the end of ALL weapons sales to the Middle East and end to ALL aerial bombardments by ALL actors in that blazing inferno.
What the hell is in the drinking water in the DC Metro area?
Sorry, but I disagree. Russian hacking into our elections would constitute an act of war.
Putin needs to be put on notice.
In reply to Michael Corey.
Yes, Russia and the United States hack and both need to be put on notice, but threatening to bomb Russian cities is appalling beyond words.
BTW, the documentary Zero Day, shows how Israel betrayed a U.S. agreement by using “Stuxnet” to sabotage the Iranian uranium refinement process in reckless ways which wound up giving away a secret code it was given in association with Stuxnet. The former CIA/NSA director Michael Hayden excoriates Israel for this betrayal.
I wonder how long we’ll continue to get away with this insanity. I fear that one of these days, America is going to pay an unimaginable price for its indifference to its wars against humanity!
