1. Dammit, Bolton, that was supposed to be secret !!!
Known only to the people running this country, ( PNAC folks) , to Israel, most of the middle east and the few citizens who read up on the PNAC/AIPAC folks writing.
And, Bolton is the 2nd guy in 2 days to float the idea of attacking Iran.

The war drums are beating again.

BIG K&R

5. What a pathetic shame this ass-hat is referred to as "former US ambassador to the UN".....geeesh!

This chicken hawk wind bag would love nothing better than to see such a scenario unwind. What a mustached turd.

Honest to God, bad enough this douche bag appears on the propaganda network, but to see him actually given credibility and appearing on other networks is very unsettling. He needs to be in a gulag someplace, torturing evangelicals.

7. Thankfully Bolton gets most things wrong. Israel would get no benefit from an attack & neither Iran.

8. This would be suicide for Israel. Attacking Iran right now would solidify support for -
Ayatollah Khamenei and Ahmadinejad. It would sabotage the new revolution brewing in Iran. Wiping Israel off the map would become the agenda of the greater part of the Middle East. China and Russia would be backing Iran in this. They have said that an attack upon will result in a world war. Many Americans will be angry with Israel's sabotage of Iran's New Revolution. Instead of America saying, Oh No! We must drop everything we're doing and run off to save Israel. What they might hear is, there is just no helping some people. Fuck 'em! It's not Israel. It's Eden. Because they need to go right now. Tell them to go stand in the river until the world forgives them. Evacuate them to Egypt. Maybe they'll run into a guy named Moses that will take them into the desert until they figure out it's not the rest of the world that has the problem. It's not the rest of the world that needs to change. Oh but we're the holy land! You show me just one thing about that land that is holy. Do I really need to finish reading their ruins? It's pure suicide.

12. Neither Israel or Iran is likely to start a suicidal war any time soon
Why are you so keen to predict disasters? And why envisage dreadful disasters falling on Israel for something they haven't even done as yet?

Bolton is insane. No reason for us all to become infected.

14. I'm just saying if they do it's suicide. Why are you so keen to make me keen about it?
It's like shooting yourself in the head. There is a chance you will survive that. But it's not likely in the least. I can go into graphic details on that too. But pointing that fact out is nowhere near being keen on it. Oh yes! Go shoot yourself in the head. Oh please please. I need the excitement. :eyes: It's just suicide at an up swing of their unpopularity.

(sorry, couldn't resist).

Seriously, I agree that listening to Bolton would be suicidal for Israel, or for anyone for that matter - and I don't think they are suicidal; therefore they will not take their advice from Bolton.

9. Bolton is just itching for more bloodshed.
If Israel attacked Iran, it would hopefully turn most of the world against them and force the US to re-evaluate its bootlicking. We're damn lucky at this point that W hasn't gotten us into a third world war - this might bring that on. :nuke:

10. to John Bolton there has never been a bad war or a good peace
He's just engaging in wishful thinking.

I have a lot of experience being highly critical of Israel. But frankly, of all the things I would accuse them of, being insane is not one of them. Nor is not recognizing the consequences of their actions. I sincerely don't believe it is going to happen; this year or next year or the year after or probably anytime. At least I would hope not.

Bolton is simply certifiably nuts.

11. Bolton is nuts, and obsessed with visions of bombing Iran
He's been pushing this crap for a long time. It reminds me a bit of the people who say 'the end of the world will be in year X' and when it doesn't happen they say 'oh, it will really be in year Y'.

So far as I know and hope, Bolton has no influence on either Israel or these days on America. Best to ignore him. His 15 minutes of fame should have ended long ago.
