Is National Security Advisor Josh Bolton itching to have a grand war of some kind?
He’s saber rattling Venezuela, which is a big mistake, because China and Russia are just salivating at the chance to keep us tied down there for years should we attack.
Last night in a statement, Bolton threatened war with Iran too. Of course, by saying he wasn’t threatening war:
The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces.
I’m not sure what this is based on. Maybe there is valid reason for concern. And Bolton is refreshingly hard headed about certain threats, including that from North Korea.
But I just wonder if this Neocon isn’t eager for some kind of conflict and is getting set to drag President Trump into one.
