Kerry: U.S. not at war with ISIS

(CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday would not say the United States is at war with ISIS, telling CNN in an interview that the administration's strategy includes "many different things that one doesn't think of normally in context of war."

"What we are doing is engaging in a very significant counter-terrorism operation," Kerry told CNN's Elise Labott in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. "It's going to go on for some period of time. If somebody wants to think about it as being a war with ISIL, they can do so, but the fact is it's a major counterterrorism operation that will have many different moving parts."

Kerry made a distinction between ISIS and terror groups operating in Somalia and Yemen.

"ISIL is an animal unto itself," he said. "And it is significantly such a threat because of the foreign fighters that are attracted to it -- which you don't see in Somalia or ... Yemen." Most importantly, Kerry said, ISIL has attracted a "significant coalition" that is determined to go and destroy it.

Kerry, in Jeddah for meetings with Arab leaders to enlist regional support for a coalition to defeat ISIS, defended the administration's insistence that the 2001 authority to go after al Qaeda and affiliates applies to ISIS. He insisted that, despite the split between jihadist groups, the origin of ISIS as an al Qaeda affiliate is enough to consider them connected.

"This group is and has been al Qaeda," Kerry said. "By trying to change its name, it doesn't change who it is, what it does."

Is he fucking high? 

We will be at war with these mongrels until it is declared either all Americans are dead or all of them are dead. They will never stop hating our guts and the feeling is mutual. As long as we have spineless men in positions of importance, this shit will continue to go on. John, you suck now just as much as you sucked back then protesting Vietnam in your fucking uniform, you shit bird. You are as worthless to our security as a Nation as tits are on a boar hog. You come out and say this shit on a day like today? That we aren't at war with extremists? I'd say there are more than a few surviving parents, relatives, spouses, and children of dead Americans who strongly fucking disagree. 

And which is it fellas, ISIS or ISIL that is not filled with Islamic extremists and are not Muslims? Because I'm pretty sure that the I in all that stands for ISLAMIC. We know it doesn't stand for Presbyterians... CAIR unavailable for comment.

Kerry is substandard. Blowjama surrounds himself with substandard people. If he had anyone normal around him, he'd be inferior to that person and of course, this would never do. He is , after all, The Golfer in Chief.
