It's about time, Bolton has been a mouthpiece in Washington for Israel for too long. Along with McCain he also entertained batshit crazy suggestions of war with Russia. One of the chief architects of the Iraq War starting in 2003 under the Bush Administration as well.

US troops belong on the American border defending the country from Third World invasion, not doing Israel's bidding in the Middle East and elsewhere.

some info on bolton posted at the time of his appointment

Bolton is a bona fide nutcase. He has repeatedly called for the US to launch a preemptive first strike on North Korea. He told Fox News "The only diplomatic option left is to end the North Korean regime by effectively having the South take it over." That's not irresponsible, that's insane. Any such attack on Pyongyang would result in the North immediately launching against Seoul. Hundreds of thousands of people would be killed at the very least. Bolton has repeatedly called for the dissolution of the nuclear deal with Iran. Oh and he thinks Iran should be bombed too. In an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal, published in January, Bolton said that US policy should be to "end the Islamic Republic before it reaches its 40th anniversary." Every now and then a real journalist will challenge him. His response? "America needs to destroy her enemies." He's a bloodthirsty bastard is Bolton, so long as someone else is pulling the trigger. And like so many of these warmongers he is a coward. He joined the Maryland National Guard in 1970 after being assured that by doing so he wouldn't be drafted and sent to Vietnam. He later wrote "I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy. I considered the war in Vietnam already lost."

Bolton though, has no moral compunctions when it comes to sending other peoples sons and daughters halfway round the world to kill and be killed. He was a director of the infamous (now disbanded) Project For A New American Century (PNAC) think tank. You may remember that they produced a paper in September 2000 called Rebuilding America's Defenses. It advocated for the US to pursue a policy of global hegemony. This would be achieved by spending billions more on the military and by "fighting and winning multiple simultaneous major theatre wars." You'll no doubt remember the papers most chilling line "Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor." Need I say any more? Bolton and his Neocon-Zionist pals pushed hardest for Bush Jr. to invade Iraq even though Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. These same Neocons knew that Saddam had no WMD's. He'd used everything he had in the war with Iran. They knew this of course because they had armed him personally.

Now we know why the great John Bolton was shuffled aside.

If anyone doubted that Trump is a complete scumbag - his betrayal of the Kurds
right now absolutely clinches it....
