A senior Iranian official has claimed a significant step forward at nuclear talks in Geneva, saying Tehran's proposed plan for resolving the decade-long impasse over its atomic programme has been accepted. Abbas Araqchi, the deputy foreign minister, said the six world powers at the talks had "accepted the framework of Iran's proposal". "The aim of both sides is to sign the agreement," he told Iranian journalists after the first session of talks.We cannot have that!
John Bolton is reiterating his calls for Israel to unleash a military strike against Iran, saying he doesn't "think Israel has much time" to make that "fateful decision" and that ultimately it should "have done this years ago."...
Bolton slammed the Obama administration's policies towards what he called "Iran's nuclear weapons program" as "utterly feckless," and criticized the negotiations the U.S. has undertaken with Iran because they "will lead to a diplomatic victory for Iran."Yes, a world where ANYTHING that avoids Iran being bombed, is a victory for Iran and hence a loss for Bolton.
With that kind of sober, rational analysis it's no wonder that...
In 2016, the most interesting wild card is former UN Ambassador John Bolton. Bolton's plain spoken "no surrender" approach to America's role in the world has particular resonance with Republicans who will have watched eight years of President Obama's "apology tour" with dismay and distress. Bolton's brand has grown since leaving the Bush administration as Fox News has given him a national audience.

They sure do like to get their killing on...well, unless it's a fetus. But once born...
Someone must have had Bolton in mind when they coined the phrase, "he'd fuck a woodpile if he thought there was a snake in it."
As for his chances in 2016, he's got about as much a chance of becoming President as did Herman "Number Nine" Cain did in 2012. He's a loopy leaping screamer who's never held elective office, makes other right-wing crazies seem tame by comparison, and is the very last guy in this country you'd want with his finger on the button.
This guy's got one of the biggest mouths (and smallest dicks) in Washington, and he's compelled to weave his emotional inadequacies into public policy. Even the ordinarily docile and indifferent American electorate knows enough to run in the opposite direction when they see this yahoo coming.
A prime exhibit in the meme of Right-Wing Politics as Manifestation of Mental Illness.
Bolton should have his own chapter in DSM IV.
isn't it time we ignored war mogers?
the neocons were only wrong about EVERTHING...
Y goes up there betwixt the R and T
