More War Trash Talk from John Bolton

Email Print

It seems that John Bolton simply won’t go away (unfortunately).  This neocon (emphasis on “con”) warmonger now is all in a hissy fit over Bill Clinton’s recent trip to North Korea to bring home two U.S. journalists held captive there.  Here is a sample of John “Let’s Nuke ‘Em” Bolton’s incendiary rhetoric:

I think this is a very bad signal because it does exactly what we always try and avoid doing with terrorists, or with rogue states in general, and that’s encouraging their bad behavior.

Yeah, you see, Bolton already is on the record as saying that we cannot negotiate with North Korea, and that means bomb and invade.  Bolton has called for the U.S. to somehow create “regime change” in Iran, and he was the hardliner of hardliners on the Iraq invasion.  Yeah, let’s hear it for this chicken hawk who constantly is demanding that other Americans fight and die in foreign wars, but made sure he did not have to serve in Vietnam.  (He is quoted as saying, “I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy.”  Of course, he has no problem with other Americans dying in the Arabian desert or the mountains of Afghanistan or the mountains of North Korea.)
