Who is John Bolton?



  • Bolton being appointed as Trump's National Security Adviser indicates to me that the neo-cons have taken near full control of his administration - particularly his foreign policy.  

  • The neo-cons are the ones who brought us 'shock and awe' in Iraq in 2003, the take down of Libya, and since 2011 the attempt to destroy the government in Syria.  It's all about chaos creation and a justification for expanded US-NATO-Israeli military boot print in the region.  The ultimate goal is to control fossil fuels, pipeline routes, and being able to impede China's progress on their 'One Belt and One Road' project that will span more than 68 countries (Eurasia and Africa) and reach 4.4 billion people and up to 40% of the global GDP.  Needless to say the US is not at all happy being left behind in the dust.  So Washington (and its foolish allies in NATO) do what they always do and that is to militarize the region.  It's the American way - take power at the end of a big gun.

  • These warmongers want regime change in Iran, Russia and China.  They are heating up the war fever in Ukraine again - likely to begin with a Blitzkrieg in the Donbass at just the moment 2018 FIFA World Cup soccer begins in Russia in mid-June  See more on the looming Ukrainian war here.  

  • The US is sending Reaper drones to Poland as US-NATO continues their cancerous expansion of military operations closer to the Russian border.  The drones would be stationed at the Mirosławiec Air Base, which is the Poland’s airbase dedicated to host the unmanned platforms.  Israel is also selling drones to Poland as it expands its military reach as a un-official 'partner' with NATO.
