No decent country


John Kerry op-ed on ISIS:  “no decent country can support the horrors perpetrated by ISIS, and no civilized country should shirk its responsibility to help stamp out this disease.”

Did the State Dept committee that ghosted this see nothing wrong with defining entire nations as decent – or not – or as civilized – or not?

Elsewhere, terrible Labour Party leader Ed Miliband calls for a “mandatory programme of deradicalisation” for British Muslims who might be planning to go to Syria or Iraq to jihad up the place.  I guess you can’t put them in prison for something they might do, but evidently you can forcibly “re-educate” them.

[Paragraph about the John McCain and Lindsey Graham op-ed in the NYT deleted, because why bother?  You’re welcome.]

Kerry translated: We're going to bomb the shit out of Syria and Iraq (again) because we're the good guys.
