John Kerry

Data di nascita: 11. Dicembre 1943
Altri nomi: John Forbes Kerry

John Forbes Kerry è un politico statunitense, attuale Segretario di Stato degli Stati Uniti. È stato il candidato per il Partito Democratico alle presidenziali del novembre 2004.

Avvocato, Kerry aggiudicandosi nelle primarie antecedenti al super martedì del marzo 2004 ben ventisette sfide su trenta , ha sbaragliato - nonostante la mina vagante di una presunta scappatella amorosa giovanile - il campo da ogni avversario, cosa che gli ha permesso di contendere a George W. Bush la carica di presidente. Le elezioni presidenziali del novembre 2004 si concludono però con la sua sconfitta e la rielezione di Bush, dal momento che Kerry non riesce a vincere negli stati chiave dell'Iowa, della Florida e dell'Ohio aggiudicandosi così 252 voti elettorali contro i 286 del candidato repubblicano.

Si è molto speculato su una candidatura di Kerry in vista delle elezioni presidenziali del 2008, ma il senatore ha preferito non partecipare attivamente alle primarie democratiche, in cui ha appoggiato il collega dell'Illinois Barack Obama.

Kerry è stato il 66 Vicegovernatore del Massachusetts dal 1983 al 1985 con il democratico Michael Dukakis, candidato democratico alle presidenziali del 1988, ed è senatore degli Stati Uniti dal 1985. La sua candidatura è sostenuta anche finanziariamente dall'alta borghesia degli Stati del nord-est. Nella sua agenda politica figurano la riduzione della dipendenza dalle fonti di energia non rinnovabili, l'espansione della copertura sanitaria pubblica e privata e l'istituzione di un servizio militare obbligatorio e di uno volontario che prevede quattro anni di istruzione gratuita per chi abbia svolto almeno due anni di servizio militare. Fra i diversi punti della sua campagna elettorale figura il sostegno ai matrimoni civili per le coppie omosessuali.

Da Senatore ricopre il ruolo di Presidente della Commissione Piccole e Medie Imprese del Senato degli Stati Uniti d'America per ben tre volte. Nel gennaio 2009 subentra a Joe Biden appena nominato Vicepresidente degli Stati Uniti d'America, come Presidente della prestigiosa Commissione Esteri del Senato federale, incarico mantenuto fino alla nomina a Segretario di Stato nel Obama bis.

Alto 1,94 m , parla francese e tedesco in modo fluente ed è appassionato di surfing. Kerry - che per i familiari e gli amici è solo Johnny - è considerato uno degli uomini politici più ricchi degli Stati Uniti. Pur firmando la risoluzione del Senato USA che avallava nel 2003 l'invasione dell'Iraq, si è sempre dichiarato contrario a tale intervento preferendo ad esso l'opzione di invio di truppe ONU.

Nel 2003 gli era stato diagnosticato e curato un cancro alla prostata.

Il 21 dicembre 2012 il presidente Barack Obama ha annunciato la sua nomina a Segretario di Stato, carica nella quale è succeduto a Hillary Clinton.

„Vogliamo una soluzione diplomatica, ma non possiamo chiudere gli occhi davanti ai carri armati che oltrepassano il confine dalla Russia verso l'Ucraina. Non possiamo chiudere gli occhi davanti ai soldati russi con uniformi senza identificazione che vanno oltreconfine e guidano battaglioni di cosiddetti separatisti.“

"Remarks to the Staff and Families of U.S. Embassy, Paris" (17 November 2015) http://www.state.gov/secretary/remarks/2015/11/249565.htm on the November 2015 Paris attacks; also quoted in "John Kerry: Charlie Hebdo Attack Had ‘Legitimacy,’ ‘Rationale’ Behind It" http://www.mediaite.com/online/john-kerry-charlie-hebdo-attack-had-legitimacy-rationale-behind-it/ by Alex Griswold, mediaite.com (17 November 2015)
Contesto: There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of — not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they’re really angry because of this and that. This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people. It was to attack everything that we do stand for. That’s not an exaggeration. It was to assault all sense of nationhood and nation-state and rule of law and decency, dignity, and just put fear into the community and say, “Here we are.” And for what? What’s the platform? What’s the grievance? That we’re not who they are? They kill people because of who they are and they kill people because of what they believe. And it’s indiscriminate. They kill Shia. They kill Yezidis. They kill Christians. They kill Druze. They kill Ismaili. They kill anybody who isn’t them and doesn’t pledge to be that. And they carry with them the greatest public display of misogyny that I’ve ever seen, not to mention a false claim regarding Islam. It has nothing to do with Islam; it has everything to do with criminality, with terror, with abuse, with psychopathism — I mean, you name it.
And that’s why when some people — I even had a member of my own family email me and say, “More bombs aren’t the solution,” they said. Well, in principle, no. In principle, if you can educate and change people and provide jobs and make a difference if that’s what they want, sure. But in this case, that’s not what’s happening. This is just raw terror to set up a caliphate to expand and expand and spread one notion of how you live and who you have to be. That is the antithesis of everything that brought our countries together — why Lafayette came to America to help us find liberty, and all of the evolutions of the struggles of France, the governments, to find the liberte, egalite, fraternite, and make it real in life every day. And all of that peacefulness was shattered in the span of an hour-plus on Friday night when people were going about their normal business. And they purposefully chose a concert, chose restaurants, chose places where people engage in social dialogue and exchange, and they object to that too.
So this is not a situation where we have a choice. We have been at war with these guys since last year. President Obama said that very clearly. And every single country — not just in the region, but around the world — is opposed to what they are doing to the norms of human behavior and the standards by which we try to live.

„I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.“

—  John F. Kerry

San Francisco Chronicle, March 21, 2004 pE2
Contesto: I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it. … Joe [Biden] and I brought an amendment to the $87 billion, and we said, `This should be paid for now, not adding to the deficit'…. The president said no; the Republicans voted no.
