From 21st Century Wire’s – John Bolton – As Ignorant as he is dangerous.
It’s incredible to think that Americans would throw their hard earned cash at someone like Bolton, and trusting him to redistribute those funds to his ‘favorite candidates’, but the majority of his financial support will no doubt be coming from the defense industry. Bolton was also one of the original signatories to the pro-war lobbist ‘think tank’ founded in 1997, known as Project for a New American Century (PNAC). Other core members included Paul Wolfowitz, R. James Woolsey, Elliot Abrams, and of course, Richard Perle. PNAC stated in its mission statement that it would seek out wars in order to prove that US could fight and win on multiple fronts simultaneously, “To fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars”, and ‘Perform the constabulary duties’ associated with shaping the security environment in critical regions”.
PNAC was merely the American version of an Israeli ‘wish list’ of tasks that Washington needed to complete on behalf of Israel. The original framework for Bolton’s PNAC came in 1996, in a research paper entitled, ‘A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm‘, which included early plans for armed incursions into Lebanon, and possible strikes against Syria and Iran.
Top of the neoconservative agenda, besides bombing Iran and killing civilians in the process, is the encirclement of Russia by NATO. Looking forward to the 2016 Presidential election, and seeing the Jeb Bush is being touted as the GOP favorite right now, it’s almost certain that John Bolton will be jockeying for either of the following the positions: Secretary of State, Defense Secretary, and NSA Director.
In all but name, this week’s US Congressional resolution against Russia is preliminary declaration of war, the last formal step before war. But Washington will likely opt for waging Wiemar-style undeclared wars, as well as bypassing its domestic Constitutional checks-and-balances by waging most of its future wars through NATO.
Bolton is one of the key hatchet men whose job it is to make those wars happen.
