John Bolton (R-Coocoocachoo), the most hilariously ill-suited UN ambassador ever recess-appointed by a moron, wrote a NYT op-ed urging the Obama administration to just give up on all this diplomacy shit and bomb Iran already. Bolton says, “Even absent palpable proof, like a nuclear test, Iran’s steady progress toward nuclear weapons has long been evident.”
And that’s true: Iran has been on the brink of achieving a nuclear bomb for many Netanyahu Units, a measure of time in which “three to five years” can span decades. Sadly, Bolton concludes: “The inconvenient truth is that only military action like Israel’s 1981 attack on Saddam Hussein’s Osirak reactor in Iraq” can stop Iran from getting a nuke.
Too bad Bolton didn’t inform his boss that Israel had already nipped Iraq’s WMD program in the bud in the only way possible back when Bush, Cheney, Bolton and the rest of the blood-gargling psychopaths in the neocon chorus where beating the war drums in aught-three. Oops.
