Trump appointment John Bolton is unsurprisingly shilling for war with Iran in defense of Israel.
White House National Security Adviser John Bolton says the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal is not a step towards a policy of regime change in Tehran. His own record and President Donald Trump’s words suggest otherwise.
Those who believe that pulling out of the nuclear deal is a precursor for US boots on the ground in Iran “would be badly mistaken,” Bolton said at a White House press briefing on Tuesday, just minutes after Trump’s announcement that the US would be leaving the 2015 agreement.
The morning after, however, Bolton was accusing Iran of provoking a war, accusing Tehran of deploying missiles in Syria that could hit Israel.
“I think Iran is bringing us close to war with its belligerent activity in Iraq and Syria,” he told CBS This Morning on Wednesday. “It’s that aggressive militaristic behavior by Iran on the ground in the region that’s the real threat.”
Are you concerned this could bring us closer to war with Iran? They are already chanting 'Death to America.' — @GayleKing

The mustachioed former US envoy to the UN has long advocated for regime change in Tehran – notably in last year’s speech at the Grand Gathering of Iranians for Free Iran.
“Even if somebody said to you that the regime was in full compliance with the nuclear deal, it doesn’t make any difference,” he remarked. The only solution to the problem of possible Iranian nuclear weapons “is to change the regime itself.” Bolton even set the date for regime change, saying that it was due to happen before 2019.
It’s getting tiring having to deal with all these theatrics and bluster.
Israel is already in a war with Iran, it’s obvious their golem is going to come running into it soon.
I know it.
You know it.
Everyone knows it.
Just get it over with already and drop the nukes. We’ve been getting blueballed on the nuclear wasteland for a month.
