John Bolton; the Cardinal Law of the Rape of Iraq

by Dan Huck on

I don't blame people for getting so excited about Bolton because on the one hand, he sounds so reasonable, he's ostensibly an educated person, he's certainly a WASP, or maybe a WASC, he did have the confidence of the previous administration for better or worse, which did manage to win (?) two presidential elections: it's quite scary for those of us who felt our nations actions were so misguided.

John Bolton reminds me of Cardinal Bernard Law, who put himself in the position of defending clergy sexual abuse in the sense he apparently participated in hiding it, hiding the perpetrators, etc. The previous Pope has thankfully taken Cardinal Law out of the game, so to speak. He deserves more. He is no longer interviewed by the major media on a regular basis, as far as I know.

We all know what John Bolton has done. To me, John Bolton is the Cardinal Law of the Rape of Iraq; I know others like the Vice President vie for the honor, but he, like Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, and Scooter Libby, is out of the action for the moment. They have not gotten what they deserve. Bolton is now the one to defend the indefensible, and to recommend it for Iraq's neighbor, Iran.

What this man has done speaks so loudly, I can no longer hear what he says.

You sound so intelligent. No substance. Just a Hezbollahi, I guess, who cares not one bit about Iran. The reason you see no clowns is because you're a blind, and a tool.

While the CLOWNS

by Sassan on

on this site kiss each other's rear and crack jokes about Bolton, Bush and the rest, there is the very real and deadly serious matter of a nuclear IRI.

I'm glad that none of you clowns are not in charge of the direction of world affairs, because if you were, I'm afraid you would allow Ahmadinejad and crew to acquire nuclear weapons. Why is this wrong? And why would I think this way?

Very simple.

If this irresponsible, terroristic regime -- which blows up Jewish community centers (Argentia, 1994) and tortures its own citizens --acquires nukes, one day it "may" actually use them (or use them as extortion to get its way), which may very well mean that one sad day Iran will get attacked by nukes and millions of Iranian people will die!

Even if the mullahs never actually use these weapons, just the fact of Iran acquiring nukes will seriouly motivate EVERY Arab nation on the planet to acquire nukes -- and they WILL acquire them, including Turkey.

So, now, fast-forward to 25 years from now and EVERY freaking messed up regime in the middle-east has fucking nukes!!! Does that make Iran and Iranians safe??? No fucking way! Does that benefit Iran and Iranians in any way? No fucking way!

Nukes will only benefit the mullahs and their terroristic regime!

And is it so hard to imagine that one day, one of these fucked up regimes in the Arab/Islamic world transfers nukes or nuke technology to some terrorist organization so that they will do their dirty work for them so as to escape direct responsibility?

These are scary scenarios for the Iranian people and all you clowns can do is poke fun at this guy's looks or wax poetically about what party he belongs to -- when all that truly matters is that a nuclear IRI is a nightmare for the IRANIAN PEOPLE, period! A nightmare that is far more precarious and deadly than any strike on the nuclear facilites!

The last thing I want is to have the terroristic IRI have access to nukes! Just look at the way they treat their own people! And even worse, the really last thing I want is for Arab countries to kick-start their own nuclear programs so as to offset Iran's nuclear capabilities.

The BEST possible scenario is for Iran NOT to have nukes, WITHOUT getting bombed! But we all know the mullahs all too well -- their existence depends on having a crisis to manipulate and an Israeli strike on the nuclear facilities is Christmas come early for the IRI -- because, once again, they will blame everything under the sun (including their massive incompetence and thievery) on outsiders!

God bless the beleaguered people of Iran because Iran's leaders don't care about them one fucking bit! They're utterly irresponsible, and have for 30 years, displayed utter contempt for the welfare of the Iranian people, and sadly, it has come down to this -- an avoidable crisis that is by far the most dangerous of all scenarios for the Iranian people!

Alex Trebek is gay. I'm not. Just so you know :)

I've been unintionally derailing too many threads here lately, so this will be my last comment here. No offense intended!

but i still love you :)

now run and get yourself a restraining order.

If that's the way you act when you love people, I hope Alex Trebek took out a restraining order :p

by the way the best part of the interview is the end

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

John Dolt-on says that ONLY ONE NATION should have nukes. And lest you think he meant Israel, he had to tell Mr. Stewart "you're sitting in it". I don't believe in god, but when I see this guy grasping for attention like this, having failed even in a reich wing administration to achieve world war three, I wonder if there might be a divine intervention.

I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek

hate? your word. not mine

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

I love John Bolton. And Sarah. And Newt. Newts/Bolts '12!!

I think it's high time for the united states to kind of take a break on international matters and not go parading on fox and cnn etc. to discuss build ups and threats. it didn't work out! plus, it seems like there are a couple of issues facing the american public, right?

just as we don't hear the canadian or french UN ambassador rambling and babbling, i don't really feel like hearing about US at UN emergency meetings and such, testicles or not. I hope she's having fun though, laying low and keeping us out of drama.

ONE less thing to worry about... unless you get off on that kind of thing, which I think Bolton does. He doesn't strike me as someone who has much else going on except Iran and it's destruction. Who knows? Maybe he has Hafez and Rumi and cook books lying around his condo while he eats his hamburger helper?

ex programmer craig

Wow, Marge

by ex programmer craig on

Feeling a little hateful, are we?

Look at the bright side! At least when John Bolton was our UN Ambassador, people knew the name of our UN Ambassador. I haven't ever seen the US Ambassador to the Un on TV since Obama took office. Never seen a statement from her in the press. Nothing. Only reason I know she's a woman is I saw her with Obama during a photo op after the election. I don't know what in the hell is going on with her, but it seems like some stuff has been going on that needs her attention, wouldn't you agree?

While we are wet dreaming about our future leaders Palin/Bolton

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

may I also suggest the following:

Liz Cheney as secretary of Defense - she's gay but she can hang with the toughest of them. black ops, marines, you name it. 

Orly Taitz for secretary of states (ones that secede?)

Joe the Plumber as secretary of interior (if it has legs, it can be dinner)

John McCain who loves Neda Soltan and Iranians for smoking so many American cigarettes and the Beach boys - the honorable ambassador to the newly freshly napalmed and nuked Iran (when you're his age, the chemicals preserve you). 

Also, the NRA can be a national agency that forces all students in grade 6-12 to study marksmanship instead of whatever other crap we teach kids in America.

I hope that Bolton has some ties to some of these lovely dissidents he speaks of? I hope we can all move back to Iran and live under King Amir Abbas Fakhravar and his apprentice Reza Pahlavi.

Sing with me, sing for the year 
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears 
Sing with me, if it's just for today 
Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away

you're in charge girl!

by IRANdokht on

I am still trying to recover from your "Palin/Bolton '12"!!! that was one horrifying thought!

I am so glad you're back, nobody can bust them balls like you do! :o)

I have another idea for Bolton's BOMB to FREE IRAN campaign

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

howzabout we design an XL shirokhorshid tie for him since he loves the dissidents so much (and i'm sure they love him). Also, it can have a green zone lining around it for Bush era pastiche. combined with his just for men makeover, I think we will have us a world war 3 in NO TIME!

He says "IN iran" "in Iran" so much, I think he has been there more than I have. Lucky guy.

I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek

Thank you

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

I missed you too Irandokht :) I hope you are swell. Let's bust some right wing balls. Oh wait..... well we can bust their "chops".


Welcome Back Marge!

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

do you think that Regan was impotent and viagra hungry when he gave the imam those weapons? i don't. i also don't think it's wrong to let american journalists (please, they are not even really american) rot in prisons because you know what? it makes "the US" look really tough as nails and john wayne-ish. 

We can't manage a health care system or mortgage/banking system, but we can sure tell those Asians and Arabs to go screw themselves good! WOOHOO! WE ARE SO STRONG.

Q hold the phone!

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

are you saying that smart bombs are really just another way of saying "the terminator"? If that's the case, I change my stance on this bomb Iran thing. 

Also, when I wonder what a dead person would sound like if he woke up suddenly, John Bolton comes to mind. 


What a complete loser

by Q on

the only thing more pathetic than this warmongering asshole, is his mini-me followers on the Internet.

Talk about being on the wrong side of history.

tof be rooye kasifet!

I have a crush on Alex: You obviously haven't heard of the next generation smart bombs(TM). These bombs can fly down, rescue hostages, put them back on a Virgin Atlantic flight to the US, and then they hold questioning sessions with top North Korean leaders. And only when they are sure they have the bad guys will they explode.


Clinton acheived nothing!

by shahabshahab on

By going to N.Korea and appeasing he N.Korean, President Kim showed to the world that he can take two simple reportes and the ex-leader of the free world will come begging to release them, and prmising them the world if that happened. This WAS a major victory for N. Korea.

I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek


by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

I think you have a point. That's what bothered me about the Clinton trip to NK - why do it diplomatically when you can do it with bombs?! These freakin' pinkos never get it.

I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek

I'd like to point out why he left the Bush Administration

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

He thought Bush was "too soft on Iran". I heard him say this on Bill Maher and another cookie cutter conservative radio show.

I think Bolton's message would be better received if he just livened up his image by a touch of Just for Men and ditching the Cheney glasses. Check out the latest calvin kleins at Lenscrafters John. You won't regret it. 

He's also pissed that the journalists were freed from NK. I wonder how Roxanna Saberi feels about Clinton's heroics on that one!  


He does have a very strong point!

by shahabshahab on

Although you can's expect everyone on this page to see his point, he does make sense. Instead of comparing a person to a dog, which is actually the most loyal being to man, let's be a bit more intelligent: The world should have stopped Iran years ago. They didn't, and now, we have the specter of WWII with the  idiots who are runnnig Iran once they get their hands on the bomb. Israel is NOT the perfect country to try to take out the bomb sites but there does not appear that there is any other country that would or could. I think it's best if we listen to the Speaker without making precoceived judgments. For those who want a Nulcear Iran, (before I am labeled traiotr or ant-Iran): An atomic Iran will attack or will be attacked by enemies, and that's when your (my) families will be in the real danger of total extinction.


The buffoon on the right -- of JS

by KB on

This is what drives me mental about the right. They actually believe the BS that they spew out. For someone who chickened out of going to Vietnam (well documented, just like his old boss), he is very comfortable about starting wars that kills thousands including Americans.

And by the way his views are too imperialistic and that is so 20th century.  Surely the nut jobs at American Enterprise Institute can come up with another crazy concept to follow.


what if....

by yolanda on

I was wondering if Bolton still said the same thing, if his wife and daughter were trapped in N Korea. Apparently the guy did not have the experience of being a prisoner in N. Korea. I am just glad that the 2 journalists have reunited with their families!


He is a nobody

by Anonymouse on

DK jaan where did you get the idea that he is a State Department "Expert"?

This guy was "selected" by Bush (like Khamenei and Ahmadi) and sent to US Senate for confirmation but Senate never took him up for a vote, he was not worthy!

Then later during a Congress recess in summer, like these days, Bush used a political move and appointed him as UN ambassador for maximum of one year, pending Senate's approval.  When his one year was up he was automatically fired because no one voted on him, not worthy.

The only reason he is on TV these days is to have a nutcase point of view.  He said yesterday negotiating with N Korea and releasing the 2 sisters were wrong.  What do you expect?  He is a Fox News "expert".  So every time you see him just tune him out because he is a nobody and never was any body.   

Everything is sacred.



by Iraniandudeee on

I was pissed off at first from just reading the comments of the people, but now that I watched the video.... I have to agree with him on some parts, like how the U.s should have been supplying, funding, and supporting the Iranian people emmensly from the beggining.

 Btw, trust me on this, the only way to get rid of this messed up regime, is through force (Either by the true Iranian people themself, or by a foreign military force), cause you cannot IN ANYWAYS TALK WITH THIS REGIME..... THE ISLAMISTS AND MULLAHS ARE SUCIDAL, and their goal is beyond benefiting Iran or the Iranian people in general.


Hopefully my iranian brothers and sisters accomplish in throwing the islamists and mullahs out of power in the comming months. Remember, the 1979 "Revolution" toke 9 months to actually throw out the pahlavi dynasty out of power. 


Does it get any dumber then this a$$h0le
