“A movement” is developing overseas in support of the Obama administration’s plan of attack on Syria, according to John Kerry. The groundswell of support has gotten so strong that Kerry is rendered speechless when it comes to actually naming any of them:

PARIS — Secretary of State John F. Kerry declared here Saturday that he is winning international support for the US effort to launch strikes against Syria, an announcement that underscored his growing role as the administration’s chief salesman for military action.

“We have a movement,” Kerry said about an international coalition for taking action to punish Syria for allegedly using chemical weapons on its own people. “There is a building element of support.”

Kerry also said that countries “in the double digits” are prepared to join the United States and France in taking military action, although he did not name those countries.

At a congressional hearing last week, Kerry claimed 34 other countries have pledged to join the U.S. should action be taken against Syria. However, when Kerry was asked to name them, he said he didn’t bring the list with him. Is it safe to assume “Kyrzakhstan” among them?

Related: Debbie Wasserman Schultz also has claimed dozens of countries have pledged military support for a U.S. strike. Who are they? She could tell you, but then she’d have to kill you.
