“Perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on,” Kerry said to the press during a meeting in Bangladesh.

“No country is immune from terrorism. It’s easy to terrorize. Government and law enforcement have to be correct 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. But if you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people,” said Kerry, who spoke about how the US will help Bangladesh achieve greater prosperity by tackling issues such as establishing security and fighting for workers’ rights.

Kerry said terror groups such as the Islamic State attack culture and history, and only seek to divide. Fighting them requires a different kind of battle and “will take a generation or more to solve.”

“It’s not just the battlefield; it’s the minds,” Kerry said. “And if we have too many young people who can’t go to school, or too many young people who are frustrated, or they can’t find a job – if we leave those minds out there for extremists to recruit, then it will continue and none of us would be doing our jobs if we allowed that to happen.”

    Fighting them does require a different form of battle. Our first strike would be throwing you and Obama out of office into the streets taking everything away from you so you have to eat in soup lines. Oh yes Kerry does have a tan and a smile like the cat that just ate the canary. They have Israel surrounded, they have financed and equipped them. Netanyahu is coming to America to beg for foreign aid and they have the U.N. Sharpening their knifes for Bebes visit. They have armed the Baltic states and convinced them Russia is the enemy. The stupid are ready for harvest….harvest is ripe for the plucking so send in the combines (Abrams tanks). The world is set to welcome the antichrist or be starved into submission. The military’s of the world are massing and getting ready for super bowl armeggedon, and God laughs. You see this is what happens when people do not read their bible (psalm 83) and elect someone who reads the Koran. Savage has insinuated that if the Muslims would forget the caliphate and the killing of all infidels and allow Israel to live in peace he thinks the world would be a better place under their leadership, no abortions and morality would up tick. But Obama is feeding the beastie baby’s everything they want that would be the want gay marriage so be it I’m god I will give you the poison … do poison rats don’t you. You want forced sex changes on your children at academic schools…so be it it. You want sex changes….so be it anything God abhors I will legalize on a daily basis. All I require from you is Israels head on a platter.
