Kerry Warns Of “Hot Confrontation” With Russia

Fresh out of ludicrous threats, the demented, drooling doofus Kerry now holds nuclear gun to the world's head

In an extraordinary interview with the Wall Street Journal given Monday and published Tuesday, US Secretary of State John Kerry made clear that the Obama administration and the US military/intelligence establishment are fully aware that they are risking the outbreak of nuclear war by pursuing a reckless and provocative policy towards Russia.
 
 
Obama, Kerry determined to start WWIII
Summarizing the interview, Journal columnist Gerald F. Seib wrote: “His greatest fear now? ‘I think it could deteriorate into hot confrontation,’ even without Russian troops crossing into Ukraine, Mr. Kerry said. ‘And there are provocateurs who are perfectly capable, who are trying to instigate that kind of flare-up.’

“The fact that it hasn’t happened so far, he said, is a tribute to the discipline and restraint of the fledgling Ukrainian government. ‘But obviously,’ he added, ‘you could have a flash point here.’”
 
 
Obama criminals will be deposed with first shot fired
Kerry’s talk of the “discipline and restraint” of the US puppet regime in Kiev is a fraud. But he knows very well about the danger of provocateurs, since he is working intimately with them in stoking up the conflict with Russia.

One of these is billionaire oligarch, former prime minister and current presidential candidate Yulia Tymoshenko, who was overhead earlier this year calling for the nuclear annihilation of Russia and extermination of ethnic Russians in Ukraine. 
 
 
 
Tymoshenko heads the Fatherland Party of the US-installed interim prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
 
 
MSM warmongers will burn in their corporate towers
That Kerry and the Obama administration intend, despite the threat of a nuclear world war, to intensify the confrontation was made clear in another part of the interview. 
 
Seib wrote: “Asked why the administration continues to punish individual Russians or single Russian companies rather than impose broader penalties on whole sectors of the Russian economy—the energy, financial or defense sectors, for instance—Mr. Kerry replied: ‘We’re inches away from that now. And if they continue on this path, that’s where it’s heading.’”

Oklahoma Execution : Clayton Lockett Writhes On Gurney In Botched Procedure

Illiterate CNN whore Isha Sesay in fake British accent gurgles in delight describing disgusting spectacle, need to kill U.S. inmates while at the same time decrying Egyptian death sentences:  Americans should imagine themselves in this position if they were indeed convicted wrongly as recent DNA evidence reversals have shown

The state of Oklahoma botched one execution and was forced to call off another on Tuesday when a disputed cocktail of drugs failed to kill a condemned prisoner who was left writhing on the gurney.

After the failure of a 20-minute attempt to execute him, Clayton Lockett was left to die of a heart attack in the execution chamber at the Oklahoma state penitentiary in McAlester. A lawyer said Lockett had effectively been "tortured to death".

For three minutes after the first drugs were delivered Lockett struggled violently, groaned and writhed, lifting his shoulders and head from the gurney.


Some 16 minutes after the execution began, and without Lockett being declared dead, the blinds separating the chamber from the viewing room were closed. The process was called off shortly afterwards. Lockett died 43 minutes after the first executions drugs were administered.

The execution of Charles Warner, scheduled for 8pm local time, was then postponed. Both were due to have been carried out with a drug cocktail using dosages never before tried in American executions.
Think you can't wind up here just because you are innocent?  Want to bet a lethal injection on it?
Lockett, 38, was convicted of the killing of 19-year-old, Stephanie Neiman, in 1999. She was shot and buried alive. Lockett was also convicted of raping her friend in the violent home invasion that lead to Neiman's death.

Warner, 46, was found guilty of raping and killing 11-month-old Adrianna Waller in 1997. He lived with the child's mother.
Death penalty states have scrambled to find new execution methods after drugs companies opposed to capital punishment, mostly based in Europe, withdrew their supplies.  
Imagine being strapped down here - innocent
Oklahoma decided to lethally inject Lockett and Warner with midazolam ,which acts as a sedative and is also used as an anti-seizure drug, followed by vecuronium bromide and potassium chloride. Florida has used a similar method but it employed a dose of midazolam five times greater. 
Ohio used midazolam alongside a different drug, hydromorphone, in the January execution of Dennis McGuire, which took more than 20 minutes.

The grim outcome on Tuesday in Oklahoma appeared likely to fuel the debate over the death penalty in the US, in particular the use of these untested drugs combinations.

Madeline Cohen, an attorney for Warner, condemned the way Lockett was killed. "After weeks of Oklahoma refusing to disclose basic information about the drugs for tonight's lethal injection procedures, tonight Clayton Lockett was tortured to death," she said.
Politics has replaced due process in death penalty cases
Richard Dieter, the executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center, which monitors capital punishment, said: 
"This could be a real turning point in the whole debate as people get disgusted by this sort of thing.
"This might lead to a halt in executions until states can prove they can do it without problems. Someone was killed tonight by incompetence," he told the Associated Press.
Before the attempted executions in Oklahoma, corrections spokesman Jerry Massie said they would probably take longer than normal because the first drug was expected to work more slowly. "Don't be surprised," Massie said.

The Guardian watched as Lockett was asked if he had final words. He said "no." He lay covered in a white sheet when the execution began at 6.23pm. At 6.30pm he was found to be still conscious.

Lockett was then pronounced unconscious at 6.33pm but his violent struggle began three minutes later. He tried to speak and was heard to say "man" at 6.39pm. An official in the execution room then lowered the blinds so viewers could no longer witness the process.
Oklahoma using convicts as guinea pigs for new execution drugs
Robert Patton, the director of Oklahoma's department of corrections, said later that when doctors felt that the drugs were not having the required effect on Lockett, they discovered that a vein had ruptured. "After conferring with the warden, and unknown how much drugs went into him, it was my decision at that time to stop the execution."


Massie said that all three drugs in the cocktail used by the state were administered, but that a vein "blew" during the execution process and Lockett later suffered a heart attack. He was pronounced dead at 7.06pm, 43 minutes after the process began.

The execution of Charles Warner was postponed for 14 days.
Since 2010 an execution by lethal injection averaged about 6 mins in Oklahoma. 
The state previously used two three-drug combinations containing either sodium thiopental (light blue) or pentobarbital (dark blue). Clayton Lockett died 43 minutes after doctors began to administer a three-drug combination that included midazolam.

The double executions were scheduled after an unprecedented legal and political dispute in Oklahoma. The inmates challenged the secrecy surrounding Oklahoma's source of lethal injection drugs, winning at the state district court level, but two higher courts argued over which could grant a stay of execution.
When the state supreme court stayed their executions so that it could consider their constitutional claim, the Republican governor, Mary Fallin, declared in a controversial statement that it had no authority to grant the stay. 
A member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives said he would try to have the justices who wanted the stay impeached. Amid accusations of undue political pressure, the court then ruled against the prisoners and lifted the stay.

On Tuesday night Fallin said she had directed her officials to conduct an investigation. "I have asked the department of corrections to conduct a full review of Oklahoma's execution procedures to determine what happened, and why, during this evening's execution of Clayton Derrell Lockett," she said.
"I have issued an executive order delaying the execution of Charles Frederick Warner for 14 days to allow for that review to be completed."
Sentenced to die, Kirk Bloodsworth was eventually exonerated by DNA evidence
Susanna Gattoni and Seth Day, attorneys for Lockett and Warner, said Lockett's execution demonstrated the harm caused by secrecy surrounding the drugs used in the attempted executions.

"This is exactly why we fought so hard to get this information known not just for our clients but for everyone," said Gattoni. " This shouldn't be kept secret. This is unfortunately what happens."
It does not take a great leap of imagination to envision yourself  HERE, an innocent individual about to be killed by illiterate, goat-roping Oklahoma thugs doing the bidding of the State
"There will be a next step," Day said. "Whatever it is there will be a next step."

Cohen, Warner's attorney, said no executions should proceed in Oklahoma in light of Lockett's execution. "My feeling about this is there can be no more executions in Oklahoma until there is a full investigation into what went wrong, an autopsy by an independent pathologist and full transparency about this process including the drugs," Cohen said.

Mission Uncertain : Canadian Planes Leave For Eastern Europe To "Assist" NATO

Following in the footsteps of Cameron and Hollande, Canada now tries to score war points on the cheap - and will wind up paying a heavy price; Obama, Kerry will fight Ukraine war to the last Canadian

RT

Six CF-18s and hundreds of Canadian Forces personnel left for Romania to help NATO forces in Eastern Europe amid uncertainty over the scope of the mission.


It is the biggest deployment of military aircraft to Romania from another NATO member since the Ukraine crisis broke out.

"There is a lot of uncertainty about what we're going to be doing over there," Lieutenant-General Yvan Blondin said at a press conference with Defense Minister Rob Nicholson in Bagotville, where the CF-18 Hornets are based.

Blondin mentioned that the troops were going to perhaps participate in routine training exercises – but he is still not sure what the mission will involve.


Canada once again buys into Obama bullshit
"We're not sure how long we're going to be staying, but we'll be staying until the government tells us it's time to come back," Blondin said.

Six fighters have set off, accompanied by a C-17 cargo plane carrying spare parts, tools and mechanical equipment.




The fighters first headed to Iceland before receiving further direction from Department of National Defense's Central Command on where they will be stationed in Romania, which borders Ukraine.

All in all, up to 250 Canadian military personnel are set to be deployed for the NATO mission.

Almost two weeks ago, it was announced that 6 RCAF CF-18 fighter jets would join the NATO mission in response to the Ukraine crisis.


A forgotten message the Taliban sent to Nicholson and Canada
"We are sending out a message to Russia and we are reassuring our allies that we are taking steps and making a point consistent with what NATO has been saying, the actions so far are unacceptable by Russia and we are sending out a very clear message," Defense Minister Rob Nicholson told CBC News.



Just a couple of days ago, UK and France deployed eight fighter jets to Lithuania and Poland to strengthen NATO air defenses.


The Afghans sent this young Canadian soldier a message he most likely has not forgotten

Polish and British air force contingents began patrolling the space over the Baltic States on Wednesday. The patrol is set to last for four months, reports ITAR-TASS. The contingent has around 100 military men, including technicians, doctors, support group, communications and other specialists.

It followed hot war rhetoric a week ago by US Secretary of State John Kerry.


A message one Canadian family has obviously not forgotten

"If Russia chooses the path of de-escalation, the international community – all of us – will welcome it. If Russia does not, the world will make sure that the cost for Russia will only grow. And as President Obama reiterated earlier today, we are ready to act," Kerry said.

On Monday, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu called on his Pentagon counterpart Chuck Hagel to help cool the rhetoric over Ukraine.


A message these Canadian soldiers have not forgotten

“The Russian minister assessed the growth of the US and NATO forces’ activities in Eastern Europe as unprecedented. He also underlined the fact that those actions are accompanied by provocative statements by NATO’s Secretary General about the need to withhold Russia,” the statement from the Defense Ministry said.

Kerry Rebuked EU For Inciting Ukraine "Tug Of War" – Report

Admitting defeat, Kerry now attempts to blame EU for failed CIA coup in Ukraine

RT
04/30/2014

While publicly denying Russia’s accusation that the EU forced Ukraine choose between Russia and Europe, in private America’s top diplomat reportedly admitted this as fact and that it played a part in escalating the ongoing crisis. 
 
 
U.S. traitor, blithering idiot John Kerry
“Some folks in Europe made mistakes, the association agreement became too much of an East-West tug of war. It shouldn’t have been,” US Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly said at a private meeting of the Trilateral Commission in Washington last Friday. His words were quoted by the Daily Beast on Tuesday.

Russia has long insisted that the EU and the US sparked the political crisis in Ukraine last October.
 
 
 
 The EU Association Agreement, which President Viktor Yanukovich refused to sign after long deliberation, would require Ukraine to sever or downgrade many of its economic ties with Russia, which would hurt greatly its economy. 
 
 
Yanukovich’s decision triggered the protest in Kiev, which eventually escalated into an armed coup that deposed him.
 
European and American officials rejected Russia’s view of the ill-fated agreement, insisting it would not damage Ukraine’s trade with Russia. 
 
 
But apparently in private conversation American diplomats don’t follow the narrative. 
 
 The division between the US and the EU over Ukraine was highlighted earlier in February after a recording of a phone conversation between Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and American Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt was leaked
 
 
They were discussing the foreign effort to help anti-Yanukovich opposition create what has now became the new Ukrainian government and expressed frustration at EU’s hesitance on the matter, culminated by the infamous “F**k the EU” exclamation from Nuland.

Kerry’s private comment on the EU’s role in the crisis is just a small part of the Daily Beast report.
 
 
Daily Beast media whore Kirsten Powers
The majority was focused on the alleged evidence that the US had of Russian agents acting in Ukraine to stir up protest. 
 
While the website initially implied that the evidence had been recorded by US intelligence, the State Department later clarified that the reported remarks were related to recordings produced by the Ukrainian government. 
 
 


Kiev published a six-minute recording, which it said proved the presence of Russian secret agents in Ukraine, two weeks ago. 
 
 
Kerry honors dead Ukrainian fascists
This was one day after a disastrous attack on protester-held Slavyansk, in which then-head of the Anti-Terrorist Center of the Ukrainian Security Service was injured. 
 
However, the evidence was far from conclusively damning for Russia.

Another package of evidence Ukraine produced so far, which the US State Department endorsed, proved to be faulty. 
 
 
 
 
The alleged photo evidence case quickly collapsed, with the New York Times, which headlined it, having to publish a follow-up admitting its failure to properly verify it. 
 
 
Following Kerry’s previous remarks on the alleged Russian involvement in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov challenged his counterpart to produce any real proof.

“Kerry has many times mentioned that Ukrainian intelligence captured Russian agents,” he said.
 
 
“So, show them to the people, have them on TV. Kerry says they don’t want to disclose the identities of those people who are engaged in the captures. This is not serious.”
