Kerry Discloses U.S. Diplomatic Objectives

January 26, 2014

On January 24, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a speech on "the role of U.S. diplomacy in the world" at the World Economic Forum in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland.

During his speech, Kerry spent some time outlining the U.S. diplomatic agenda for the Middle East which included the following three major "priorities":

– to prevent Iran from building a nuclear deterrent or at least to increase "the breakout time" before Iran could be capable of doing so

– to begin a transformation of Syria's entire political landscape by orchestrating the forcible removal of the procedurally appointed President of the country

– to suppress the Palestinian liberation struggle in order to secure imperialism's rear

Once again, the U.S. State Department spokesman has shown that U.S. imperialism's talk of peace is nothing but preparation for more war.
