    So, those American airstrikes recently in Libya, the ones for freedom and to defeat ISIS and banish Ant Man to hell?

    Yeah, darn it, they also killed two Serbian diplomats. But don’t worry, America’s own secretary of state John Kerry personally called the Serbian prime minister to say “Sorry, our bad, dude.”

    So that’s OK now. The U.S. may resume bombing nations of its choosing around the globe.


    Even as the Pentagon said it had “no information” indicating that the American attack had led to the deaths of two Serbians and that the circumstances of their deaths “remained unclear,” Kerry offered his condolences to Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic over the Serbian diplomats killed in the U.S. airstrike.

    Serbia officials said the strike’s victims included two officials from Serbia’s embassy in Libya, Sladjana Stankovic and Jovica Stepic, who had been taken hostage in the area. Kerry told the prime minister that he would inform the Serbian government about all the details of an investigation to be conducted by the United States concerning the death of the diplomats.

    Serbian Prime Minister Vucic on the weekend said that the pair “would have been released, had they not been killed” by the United States.

    Nothing says World’s Last Remaining Superpower like the ability to blow off the killing of two friendly-nation diplomats. Imagine the inverse, with two American diplomatic staff killed abroad, say, maybe in Benghazi?

      Kerry: “We thought the two Serbian diplomats were actually Doctors Without Borders trying to flee their makeshift hospital. Sorry. We usually wait until they’re in their hospital garb and actually operating” before we unload. Our bad.”

      Hell, American citizens can get blasted when they present an “imminent danger.”

      Give those pilots a day off. They may have pulled something laughing too hard when they heard Kerry apologized.

      “Where high-level government officials (i.e. Hillarious or The Donald) have determined that a capture operation is infeasible and that the targeted person is part of a dangerous enemy force and is engaged in activities that pose a continued and imminent threat to US persons or interests.”

      I shouldn’t- but I’m enjoying the doofus Kerry stumbling through his Sec of State gig. He joined the Obama administration which seems destined to be one of the least effective and dysfunctional administrations in the history of the USA. Kerry wanted to be a war hero and then recanted saying his service was bogus. Ending up where he is seems a perfectly earned hell.

      Hey, at least we aren’t bombing Belgrade and other civilian targets nowhere near Kosovo, the way we did in 1999.

      That was Big Bad Bill Clinton, whose actions contravened U.S. and international law and were a direct precedent for W’s war in Iraq.
