John Bolton Wants To Bring You The Sequel to Shock And Awe

The Shock will take some time to wear off

By two_kittehs

The neocons are back at it again, baying for another war in the Middle East. John Bolton, the man with the ridiculous mustache and even more ridiculous ideas wants to start a war to end war. Hmmm, I wonder where I have heard that one before.

Since their last project turned out so well, they want to go even bigger this time.  All this hysteria about Iran reminds of the buildup to the other neocon pet project, Iraq. We know how that turned out. I am rendered speechless by the temerity of the cheer leaders of the Iraq war calling the President  naïve.  These are the same people  who made pie-in-the-sky predictions about Iraq a mere decade ago, and are responsible for the needless death and destruction.

I have a suggestion for John Bolton and the Iraq fail brigade in the media and think tanks, if you want to talk about war: enlist first, talk later.
