. . . John Bolton . . . , President Trump's national security adviser, is reported by the US press as having urged the inclusion of Iranian and Russian targets in the April 14 attack, but he was overruled by the Pentagon. Bolton was also reported by the Israeli press as "coordinating" this idea with Israeli officials.I’m generally well disposed to Mr. Bolton. I’ve always thought that he made sense whenever he appeared on Fox News. I’ve discounted reports of his being an uber hawk so the above paragraph is disappointing. The links in the paragraph may well support Mr. Helmer’s assertions but I haven’t verified whether they do or not as I don’t care to subscribe to either publication.
The world has had quite a bellyful of American arrogance .
