Nothing short of another war in the Middle East will satisfy the bloodthirsty needs of John Bolton and his neocon cronies.
On the November 25 edition of Fox’s America’s News HQ, Former Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton criticized the deal as “abject surrender” to the Iranians. Bolton claimed sanctions “were never going to stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons anyway” because” sanctions need to be administered by a living breathing president,” and in Bolton’s mind, Obama isn’t capable of success on this front. Bolton added that we must accept one of two propositions; a nuclear Iran, or support Israeli airstrikes.
Kristol, Krauthammer and the rest of the usual suspects are all saying the same, more or less. No degree of diplomacy on the part of President Obama will satisfy the chickenhawks because their only option in dealing with Iran (and every other foreign policy issue) is annihilation.
As for John Bolton, there has never been a war he did not love…as long, of course, as he was not personally involved.
Bolton supported the Vietnam War but enlisted in the Maryland Army National Guard to avoid being sent overseas, and consequently did not serve in Vietnam. He wrote in his Yale 25th reunion book “I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy.
These people make it so easy to despise them in every way possible.
