Why you should oppose John Bolton

It is bad enough that the neocons did not have the best interests of the United States in mind when pushing for the invasion of Iraq. Far worse, however, is their general incompetence in foreign affairs.

This can be seen in the countless miscalculations they made with regard to the Iraq war -- how difficult it would be and its likely outcome. These miscalculations continue to consume American money, lives and credibility.

In fact, Juan Cole explains here why our current troubles in Iraq virtually ensure that Iran will achieve nuclear capability. We have not secured the Middle East. In fact, it is more dangerous than ever.

If we want to prevent further incompetence, you should oppose John Bolton as US Ambassador to the UN.

If you are from Ohio call your Senator and tell him your position. If you have a Democratic Senator, call and request that they filibuster the nomination.

John Bolton is a hack for JINSA (Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs) whose mission will be to take on Russia at the UN Security Council in order to get the attack on Iran underway for Israel:

Just heard on the news that Iran will be taken up at the UN Security Council (for Israel, of course) if it goes ahead with its nuclear enrichment program... Looks like Scott Ritter's 'Sleepwalking to Disaster' article is right on track for a June attack on Iran (or shortly thereafter):

Steven Clemons is one of the sources for all things anti-Bolton. I find him intelligent and well written.

Check out the mention about Bolton in the email sent to Michael Gordon on the Iran desk at the US State Department (as it is included at the following URL - simply scroll down to it):
