Let’s Call Bolton What He Is, A War Criminal With Terrorist Ties, Not Just “Hawkish”

By Juan Cole

March 23, 2018 "Information Clearing House" - John Bolton helped lie our country into an illegal war of aggression that killed several hundred thousand Iraqis, wounded over a million, and displaced 4 million from their homes, helped deliver Baghdad into the hands of Iran, and helped create ISIL, which blew up Paris. In a just world, Bolton would be on trial at the Hague for war crimes. Instead, he has been promoted into a position to do to Iran what he did to Iraq.hat
He is also in the back pocket of the MEK Iranian terrorist organization, which despite its violent and smelly past has proved so useful to those plotting the apocalyptic destruction of Iran that the Washington elite decided to take it off the list of terrorist organizations in 2012.





The acceptable political spectrum inside the Beltway in Washington DC is a marvel to behold. Bernie Sanders, a long-serving senator and public servant won 13.2 million popular votes to 16.8 million votes for Hillary Clinton (i.e. he was backed by 43% of one of the two major parties in the country). But Sanders was virtually blacked out from corporate television coverage during his impressive presidential bid, while Jeff Zucker turned CNN over to Tɾυmρ every night at 7:30 pm throughout the summer and fall of 2016 and just let him talk, or whatever he does, for an hour without even a semblance of journalistic analysis. Supposedly left-leaning MSNBC did the same thing.

America’s corporations love the fascist side of the spectrum, which is obvious from the way they promoted Tɾυmρ and Tɾυmρism. Zucker also hired Cory Lewandowski, who was at the time contractually obligated to avoid criticizing Tɾυmρ, as a CNN commentator. Fascism after all favors big corporations and vilifies and punishes workers and the poor. Under Mussolini, the Italian poor were plunged into much deeper poverty.

Television news also loves the maniacal side of the spectrum. You seldom see normal people as commentators on cable news, and much of the commentary is polarized and superficial and often simply incorrect on the facts of the matter. Sometimes it is even just a criminal cօռspιʀαcʏ. During the Iraq War, the NYT revealed that the Pentagon successfully pressed on CNN a gaggle of former generals, many of them actively making money off of the Iraq War through contracting while they were promoting it on television. They presented an Alice in Wonderland view of the brutal US occupation of that country as a shining success. Tom Fenton, a career television journalist, once wrote a book suggesting that television news is so bad that it is actually a standing risk for US security, since an uninformed or misinformed public cannot play the democratic role of watchdog and is not being alerted to genuine threats. Maybe the maniacs draw eyeballs and increase advertising dollars. Maybe Wall Street doesn’t see people as maniacs as long as they advocate giving billionaires more money.


The fascination with the far right wing and with the maniacal dovetails in the person of Bolton, now Tɾυmρ’s National Security Adviser. Jesus said that if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch. The ditch in this case could well be a ruinous war with Iran.

In an sane society, people like Bolton wouldn’t be allowed on television, much less put in charge of American security.

Bolton has assiduously tried to do the same thing he did to Iraq to Iran. Big corporations like wars. Wars mean you have to manufacture more shiny children-murdering weapons and bσɱbs, the ultimate in planned obsolescence. No war, and the factories fall silent and the money-counting stops. People called “hawks” in Washington, a euphemism for “murderous maniacs,” often get supported one way or another by the arms industry. Sometimes it is direct and their bank accounts should be examined.

Iran has never had a nuclear weapons program, and as long as the nuclear deal holds, it has no opportunity to develop them. It has no heavy water reactor. It has a limited number of centrifuges. It destroyed its stockpile of uranium enriched to 19.5% for its medical reactor. It is being actively inspected. No country under active UN arms inspections has ever developed a bσɱb.

Bolton wants to bσɱb Iran so badly that he does not care about these facts. He wanted to bσɱb Iran himself if he could, sort of like Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove. If not he wanted to have the Israelis do it.

He has a list. He’d like to bσɱb nuclear-armed North Korea, too.

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists that keeps that clock showing how many minutes the world is away from a nuclear midnight can put it away. With Bolton’s appointment, it is past midnight.

John Bolton wants to genocide all Syrians and Iranians for a greater "Israel".

Research "The Greater Israel Project".

Thanks much for posting the OP.  Bolton appears to be an absolute certified psychopath.

Now that the Walrus has arrived on the scene, someone is sure to get bσɱbed.  He's never known a country he didn't want to bσɱb ... including the U.S.

I believe him over y'all

    ‘I give you 24 hours to resign’: 1st OPCW chief on how John Bolton bullied him before Iraq War
    … from Russia Today, Moscow
    Gambling boss Sheldon Adelson, interfering in American government, and media does not say a word
    [ Editor’s Note: John Bolton has a deep closet profile as the classic bully American, the kind the whole world hates, and should. But he is proud of it.
    Commentators are crediting Jєωιѕн-Zionist billionaire Sheldon Adelson with putting the whammy on Tɾυmρ, such that if the Republicans want to be bankrolled by Shelly in the mid-term ɛƖɛctıons, he wants Bolton as National Security adviser.
    Other government departments familiar with Bolton’s history are advising that the general problem with Bolton is that when has a staff position, he wants it built into a cabinet-level, policy-making position.
    Why? The answer is that when the hard-core Jєωιѕн lobby backs national politics, they are actually backing Israel’s national politics; and their insurance that an extra form of payment will be received is to have their proven key people put into these top slots.
    “Interfering in American ɛƖɛctıons since…”
    Never discussed, other than at places like VT, is that the Israeli Lobby likes to have at least a handful of their operatives with top-secret security clearances, and the gold standard there is getting access to the daily top briefings.
    While Israeli espionage continues to work from the bottom up here, getting their hooks into the top security clearances, including those in Congress, is serious business to them.
    You can be assured that when Democrats and Republicans are going through turnovers of key committee chairmanships, the Jєωιѕн Lobby people and major donors are brought into that process.
    This is a well-known outrage; and another case where American investigative journalists have chosen never to mention a word about it.
    Many claim that is due to the same Lobby making sure our press is also compromised when it comes to Israeli Lobby issues. So far, no one has been able to propose a plan to turn this around Jim W. Dean]
