    Are you surprised that Bolton is making that speculation?

    Not going to happen. The Israeli government has shown that they will listen to America and no way in hell the Obama administration has green lighted an attack!

    Don't ya just love the broad accusation by libs, as though they had actually studied, or understood the subject?

    Possibly you meant a different John Bolton...
    This one, Ambassador Bolton has a B.A. from Yale College and a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was editor of the Yale Law Journal. He has written for numerous publications, including the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and the Weekly Standard, and is the author of Surrender is Not an Option: Defending America at the United Nations and Abroad.

    He writes:

    "In Iran we see another example of the outstretched hand being slapped away. Indeed, there is now at least anecdotal evidence that the regime in Tehran saw the Obama administration as so eager for negotiations that it would overlook any harsh steps Iran might take internally. So in response to the administration’s friendly overtures, the mullahs in Tehran conducted a grossly fraudulent presidential election on June 12 and have spent the subsequent months repressing their opponents. Close observers believe that there is no longer a power struggle in the Iranian government between hard-liners and moderates—if any moderates are left—but rather that power is flowing away from the ayatollahs and toward the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. In other words, Iran is being transformed from a theological autocracy into a theological military dictatorship. And given that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps controls both Iran’s nuclear weapons program and its funding of international terrorism, this means that Iran will only become more dangerous as time goes on."

    talk about broad brushes. what 'libs'? so far i saw one person make a comment about bolton.

    and if bolton is correct about this, still doesn't mean he's not a neo-con. it would be silly to say he isn't.

    as for the link to hillsdale college... really?

    I'm not a lib, I'm not the one who supports a foreign policy actually called LIBERAL INTERVENTIONISM, Bolton and his merry band of neo cons do, the only difference between them and the Democrats foreign policy is the Democrats have more of a Mr. Rogers neighborhood feel to it and the neo cons have more of a Yosemite Sam flare about em, they both are the world's biggest "nosey neighbor"..
