    :lol:

    I hate to break it to you guys, but Bolton's about as close to the definition of "neo-conservative" as one can get.

    With Bolton comes wars, whether you want them or not.

    Bolton is a lunatic - even worse than the usual Trump misfits.

    It's because McMaster will be testifying against Trump--:dig: On the bright side, I don't think Bolton has any love for Vladimir Putin.

    We can't have peace all by ourselves. Being prepared for the worst is the best motivator for peace.

    QUESTION: How do you prevent war without the implicit threat of war?

    I challenge anyone on this board to suggest a formula that Europe could have used to prevent war with Hitler, and all of you have the luxury of hindsight! And you know what that formula ends up being in the end? Everyone parking troops on his border, telling him if he crossed into another country, everyone would light him up!

    Dictators rely on people in free countries, willing to avoid war at all costs. Someone needs ask these people who are for "peace at all costs," at what point do you actually suggest we ever go to war? Do we go to war AFTER a nuclear bomb goes off in one of our cities, or do we still turn the other cheek?

    And so, if you then say, "well if that happens, of course we go to war," then the next question is------------->well then, you explain to all the Americans who lost their lives following YOUR mantra, why in the hell we didn't do it, BEFORE someone everybody knows is crazy, wasn't stopped while researching the technology to kill your fellow American, citizens!

    Absolutely...the man is Dr. Strangelove crossed with Colonel Klink. He is certifiably insane and combined with undeniable ineptitude. The inmates have taken over the asylum.

    except as we should know by now, what we want isn't always what we get.

    Bolton has Pence written all over it... Why can't Trump just go outside the damn box and get someone that is not a Bush Boy?
