Kerry says Iran won't get nuclear weapons, urges diplomatic approach

By Tom Cohen

Secretary of State John Kerry urged Congress on Tuesday to put off more sanctions against Iran at this time, saying "this is a very delicate diplomatic moment" to seek a peaceful solution to the issue of preventing Tehran from gaining nuclear weapons.

Kerry, appearing before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, sought to reassure lawmakers about the Obama administration's commitment to preventing a nuclear armed Iran, but underscored the importance of international diplomatic efforts that have so far produced a temporary agreement curbing its nuclear program.

"Iran will not acquire a nuclear weapon," he said, stressing that declaration was the centerpiece of President Barack Obama's foreign policy.

    John Kerry is the just a dumb pawn of Obama/Jarrett, blindly sacrificing his own career to carry out the mission.

    A guy who rats out his platoon in Vietnam to advance his political career, then embellishes his record to beef up his resume, then marries an ugly rich woman to have the money to get ahead....well, you get the picture. This dunce is proving to be the worst Secretary of State ever in the history of the United States.

    Thanks to Carter's acceleration of the Iran nuclear education program at NE programs in America in the 80's, I have no doubt Iran has several radiological based fission devices on hand right now. (can't say the "N" word on CNN.)
