‘Pouring kerosene on hot coal’: 4 takeaways on John Bolton, Trump’s hawkish new security adviser

Key storylines to watch from Trump’s new appointment of John Bolton

 

Simply unbelievable.

The only good thing we once expected from Trump was some diminishment of the role of the destructive Neocons in Washington.

The Neocons are the people who have put America on the bloody rampage that it has been on for about the last 15 years, bombing half a dozen countries, toppling governments, killing about 2 million people and creating millions of refugees who nearly destabilized Europe, as well as pursuing and threatening Russia as though it were an enemy.

The basic drive of these people is to have the United States use its power to push its supremacy everywhere in the world. They make no apologies for war. They are almost mindless defenders of Israel and its abuses and recognize virtually no legitimacy to the rights and claims of the Palestinians. They are not averse to the idea of war with Iran.

Well, here’s the Great Orange One appointing one of their greatest, most unpleasant fanatics, John Bolton, a man whose career is littered with ugly statements.

And this comes after two other genuinely grotesque appointments.

Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State and Gina Haspel as CIA Director. Pompeo is a total warmonger and Haspel has been called the godmother of the CIA’s vast torture program. She actually ran one of their black sites, and there is warrant for her arrest in Germany for war crimes.

I genuinely fear for the future. These appointments are straight from hell.
