News Item:  Secretary Kerry gets nowhere with calls for sanctions against Russia or
in the framework for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Yes, I am Kerr-ioki, the singing parrot, and I sing a song of peace ...

While you make war?

What is war but a means to peace?  I sing of peace, of conflict resolution ...

You fly here, you fly there, you fly everywhere, all the time ...

Yes, I am a parrot.  I like to fly ... And I like to talk ...

And nobody listens, but you must have millions of frequent flier miles ...

No, that is a real tragedy ... none at all on these government planes ...   But what the
heck ... the wife's a billionaire ...

Marrying rich ...   that's your real secret?

Always did it ... and publicity.  That's the ticket.  But I sing of peace.  ..Always did ...
That's why I took this job.

All the killings in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Somalia, and now provocateurs
shooting 80 demonstrators and police in Kiev to topple the government ...

Hey!  I like omelets, and you can't make one without breaking eggs.  I break eggs and
I sing of peace.

Is there anything else you can do?

Yes, I can fry and I can fly ... and I can marry rich like my friend McCain ...  and I can
sing ...  Oh yes, and I have a plan ...
