Trump fires Bolton as security adviser

 President Donald Trump asked for John Bolton’s resignation as national security adviser. According to US news reports, Bolton was at odds with the president on the peace talks with the Taliban for ending the war with Afghanistan and achieving a troop withdrawal. The hawkish Bolton was also said to have disagreed with the Trump administration on a nuclear deal with North Korea and French President Emmanuel Macron’s mediation for possible Trump talks with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Bolton said in a Tweet: I offered to resign last night but the president said let’s talk about it tomorrow. Trump said he had requested Bolton’s resignation “last night” and it was offered in the morning.

      Bolton Policies set the Tone at first the American Military Rebuilt for War. POTUS Trump Removed Bolton but Added Greater Sanctions on Iran Shiia Regime & Servants on No Global Transactions for Them, Nations, & Families. Dogs Of War Tails Wagging Rages Of War Never Wag The Head That Can Truly Bite Not Just Bark!

    This is very good news, with that lunatic out the way we can start focusing on peace and building partnerships. Perpetual War has gained us nothing but debt and lost opportunities.

    Agree or not with Bolton’s positions, at least he is consistent which is something the president clearly is not. And it is precisely the inconsistency that represents the danger Trump represents for Israel (and the Saudis, and the Egyptians and, Japanese and, well, the list goes on).

      DM… Every Nation Weighs the Cost of Conflicts verses the Cost of Change of Behavior to Avoid Real War that Everyone will think will solve Everything? The Difference is a “Few of the Power” to Wage War & Win, and the other “Few Threaten War”, but knows Cannot Win the War! Costs of Conflicts Are High!

    Another Example of Dual Diplomacy. POTUS Trump with PM Bojo Removes Hardliner Bolton Advocate for Sanction Attacks on Nations Funding Terror & PM Bibi Direct Preemptive Defensive Attacks on Iran, Iraqi-Syrian Camps, Hizballah, & Gaza Hamas that are Afraid to Fight. While Taliban Banish from Washington. Leaving them all in State of Confusion! Knowing Opportunities have Windows to Change their Behaviors while Financially Bankrupting them and Protests Grow Stronger as they are made Weaker Every Day!

    It is not a “war with Afghanistan” but a war in Afghanistan, a civil war in which the US and other foreign powers have sided with the regime to prevent the Taliban from returning to power.

      Saksin… is Wise a Taliban that does not understand that 50% of Afghanistan Youth Are Less Than 23 of Age & Have No Memory of 911 Taliban! But now Remember Schools & a Change of Afghanistan Life that has Changed for the Better & Won’t Welcome Back the Taliban Nor Help Them! Plus America will still be there with New Weapons that can Defend & Kill from Nevada not just Kabul?

    Mr. Bolton will be missed by those that truly want a stronger America. An America that holds the Nation of Israel close to its heart and knows truly what the Islamic nations are really about….the total and absolute destruction of Israel.

      Get real. Bolton loves and obeys only one thing – the evil satanic spirit being of Mastema. That ‘s why he thrives on wars and destruction and dead babies. But Trump has tested him and found him wanting.

    Dave & BWM… Good Points & Elections Matter As Well! Seven Days in Israel, UK in October Maybe, & Special Congressional Election Today in USA, 2019 & 2020! Jewish Voters are Reconsidering their Votes Especially in JerUSAlem, Michigan & Minnesota & just a Change of Under 5% can make Neutralize Previous Wins? Bolton Still Around, So Is Bibi & Trump & Especially Israel!

    So whats the policy then? Bolton was for military action , Obama was for some agreement like Iran nuclear deal which could be done with North Korea too. Now unless Israel acts Iran will 100% go for Nuclear weapons and Saudi will follow. Soon Kim Jong Un will test an ICBM aimed at USA too. This is buffoonery. A rudderless ship.

    Neutralization Voting Can Go The Opposite Way As Well. Taking 5% from One Candidate In A few districts Is Really A 10% Loss Since His Normal Voters Changed. This Means in Today’s Elections, Bibi on 17th, and BOJO maybe in October could also show 2019 7 2020 Elections for Trump is not a Sure Thing Either If Lose?

    The us has been financing all these wars on the credit card (with the $ as world reserve fiat currency). Getting peaceful settlements now will help a lot when the till finally comes up “credit denied”. Good riddance to john “perpetual war” Bolton. The last 30 years gratuitous wars have gained us nothing.

      gained nothing… except a huge national debt to china, etc, many very wealthy military industrialists, a bit less military threat to israel, and the start of a sovereign kurdish state. The beneficiaries are happy, the US taxpayer is in misery.

    Trump acts tough but when the time comes to make the hard decisions he capitulates. He is not fit to be mayor of a small city , let alone president of United States. If he goes soft on Mullahs , I hope the is gone in 2020.
