John Fucking Bolton...

For fuck's sake…

"In the febrile days after Donald Trump’s election, one of the more terrifying prospects was the appointment of John Bolton to a senior position in the incoming administration. Bolton is the hawk’s hawk, the neocon’s neocon…"

"Bolton wasn’t picked for his penchant for pre-emptive strikes, but because he regularly pops up on Trump’s TV"

"His published work includes “To Stop Iran’s Bomb, Bomb Iran”, “The Legal Case for Striking North Korea First” and “How to Defund the UN”."

Presumably "Strangling Communist Kittens for Beginners" is still at the publishers.

It's a children's book and they're still looking for the right illustrator.

Maybe Trump can use crayons.

Prepare for war with north korea and iran.

That will happen if bolton gets what he desires.

Just when you think there is hope....

virgil5 - 24 Mar 2018 10:15:05 (#6 of 420)

And $144 billion in the new Pentagon budget for toys to play with.

And John Bolton was key figure to make up "evidence" of WMD that justified attack on Iraq, so he is pretty familiar to twist facts to what ever he wants to and people like MM just likely nod of approval.

Lord Dampnut is limited to whatever talent is in the Fox News stable. It could get worse, he could hire Sean Hannitty on as Chief of Staff.

"Talent" have very new meaning associated with fox.

Actually it has nothing to do with actual talent.

IQof76 - "And John Bolton was key figure to make up "evidence" of WMD that justified attack on Iraq, "

Wrong, per usual.

IQ76again - 24 Mar 2018 15:17:53 (#11 of 420)

Wrong, per usual.

Right, just like usual.

Bolton was actually key figure to falsifie Iraq WMD that did not exist.

He will be superb to lie you to next war.

Geribaldi - 24 Mar 2018 15:21:20 (#12 of 420)

What falsified Iraq WMD? You're always wrong. There must be something in the water in Helsinki.

IQ76again - 24 Mar 2018 15:23:58 (#13 of 420)

What falsified Iraq WMD? You're always wrong.

There was no WMD if you can remember so long ago.

Bolton lied then like he has been doing since.

Geribaldi - 24 Mar 2018 15:34:20 (#14 of 420)

Since no WMD was found, I am not sure what you think was falsified.

IQ76again - 24 Mar 2018 15:37:56 (#15 of 420)

Since no WMD was found, I am not sure what you think was falsified.

Falsified was bolton report that Iraq had WMD.

upgoerfive - 24 Mar 2018 15:39:37 (#16 of 420)

Bolton appears to be up to his neck in the Cambridge Analytica cabal too:

Here is Bolton lying about Iraq's WMDs

Geribaldi - 24 Mar 2018 16:11:55 (#18 of 420)

Every intelligence agency in the world thought he had WMDs, there was no "lie".

whitbreadtrophy - 24 Mar 2018 16:18:10 (#19 of 420)

Every intelligence agency in the world thought he had WMDs, there was no "lie".

That's a lie.

mingmong - 24 Mar 2018 16:24:01 (#20 of 420)

they just all happened to make up the same thing at the same time. That is different from lying apparently.
