John Bolton, my old friend who is right on many things but not the wars (which he supports and wants to expand), might run for president — if no one else will “persuasively [argue] that our economic recovery and long-term prosperity are completely intertwined with a strong national security posture.”
Well, the neocons are sure to insert some loser in the debates whose only assignment will be to trash Ron Paul. But look at the comments in Human Events, Ronald Reagan’s favorite newspaper, the old standby of conservative precinct committeemen and country chairmen for generations: they think John’s nuts!
And by the way, John opens with Adam Smith and immediately turns him on his head (Just like Marx did to Hegel, John — according to Lenin, remember?): “The first duty of the sovereign [is] that of protecting the society from the violence and invasion of other independent societies.” John, that’s protecting “our” society, not imposing Iranian puppets by force who expel all the Jews (and they’re working on Christians) from Iraq or funding corrupt Pashtun pederasts who rob us blind in Afghanistan.8:36 am on August 8, 2011 Email Christopher Manion
