In the grand tradition of American elites (pompously speaking for all of us) making outrageous comments to the foreign media that they assume and hope isn’t heard back home, or maybe they don’t care; who knows, the practice continues on.
“U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate” John Kerry was interviewed by BBC Arabic and considering the usual death and collateral damage that comes with war, he made one of the most tone deaf statements to date, and that’s saying a lot given a Biden administration that was widely praised by the corporate media for bringing back the “adults” in U.S. politics….
Of course, when it comes to anything the public obviously took the wrong way, the administration explained how we all should have understood what we heard.
Secretary Kerry strongly condemns the unprovoked and unjustified attack by Russian military forces. On Monday prior to the attack, he was asked about the climate implications of a potential future conflict.
