This time will be different. That is the word from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to Syrian rebels who have become so frustrated by empty promises of help to overthrow President Bashar Assad that they had threatened to boycott a Thursday meeting in Rome of the Friends of Syria alliance.

Hints of meaningful assistance remain vague, though, giving rise to fear of more dashed expectations. “We are not coming to Rome simply to talk, we are coming to Rome to talk about next steps,” Kerry told reporters in London after meeting with his British counterpart, Foreign Secretary William Hague.

His inaugural overseas foray as the U.S. chief diplomat has been designed “precisely to consult with our friends and allies” on Syria, Kerry asserted, noting the first two days of his nine-state diplomatic scurry have included huddles with British, German, French and Russian colleagues.

    If I had been asked this question around the first of the year, I would have said a big fat NO. But lately I have been seeing him in a different light, and I believe that John Kerry might be just right man for the job. Without a doubt, he will be better than Hillary Clinton ..
    It's for sure he couldn't do any worse.

    Obama and Kery have new allies, Al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah, Ahmadineajad and the rest of radical islamic terrorist groups. They are the new friends and are being showered with money and weapons.

    God willing, John Kerry will be a good Sec. of State and answer the calls of the Syrians who are trying to tear down the Hitler of the Middle East. I have faith in John Kerry to do whatever it takes no matter what Russia, Iran and Hezbollah have up their sleeve. America can have her moral compass back if she helps the Syrians.

    America will get her moral compass back if we get the hell out of the middle east and stop these vainglorious wars which serve no other purpose than to blow the crap out of brown people-except to enrich the military-industrial complex, that is.

    We'll get our moral compass back when Obama is tried for treason and impeached.
