Jon Stewart ranted against the Republican and conservative Fox News Stronghold on his comedy-cum-political news show. He zinged Secretary of State Kerry and the political machine that sought to move forward with the war efforts rather than hold onto and explore what chance of peace is available. While Kerry’s statement was never meant to be policy forming, his slip of the tongue, a statement meant as a rhetorical answer has become something big internationally. It is possible that now Syria’s dictator Assad will give up his chemical weapons as a way to avoid getting droned-avoiding another US war.

Patriots of the US stand on both sides, arguing whether or not this was a moment of losing face for the United States, who slipped into a peace process through the back end of Secretary of State Kerry’s rhetorical statement. A reporter had asked if there was any way to avoid war. While on both the beginning and end of the statement Kerry affirmed that it wasn’t possible, he went on in the middle of his statement to say that perhaps if the dictator gave all of his chemical weapons to the international community we could stop the march of the war machine.

By inadvertently but successfully avoiding a war with Syria, Stewart compares Secretary John Kerry to Mr. Magoo. Stewart criticized Fox heavily for moving from war into what the Huffington Post calls the “shame-spin cycle” which shows that Russia and a “shirtless” Putin has got the upper hand. Stewart rants, “I get that Fox opposes the Syria peace plan because its modus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless, irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama and all things Democratic to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic, succubus like existence, But…sorry I blacked out, was I saying something?” Fans applaud Jon Stewart for his rant which hyper-critiques Fox’s lack of joy that the war machine has been unplugged. “Who cares how we avoided a war and got a dictator to give up his chemical weapons if we avoided a war and got a dictator to give up his chemical weapons,” he says.

Although this section of the Jon Stewart show mocked Secretary of State Kerry, it is also notable that Stewart praises Kerry for proposing the possible solution. Notably, Assad seemed to agree and peace for the moment is here, or at least, the dismantling of Assad’s chemical weaponry will now begin.
