George Will on John Bolton as National Security Adviser

The not always sound George Will gets it:
Because John Bolton is five things President Trump is not — intelligent, educated, principled, articulate and experienced — and because of Bolton’s West Wing proximity to a president responsive to the most recent thought he has heard emanating from cable television or an employee, Bolton will soon be the second-most dangerous American. On April 9, he will be the first national security adviser who, upon taking up residence down the hall from the Oval Office, will be suggesting that the United States should seriously consider embarking on war crimes...

Bolton’s belief in the U.S. power to make the world behave and eat its broccoli reflects what has been called “narcissistic policy disorder” — the belief that whatever happens in the world happens because of something the United States did or did not do. This is a recipe for diplomatic delusions and military overreaching.

  1. Fitting that it’s April 9, the anniversary of the date any hope for control of DC was stamped out finally in Appomattox.

  2. Will explains exactly why Neocons are leftist "progressive" Democrats, perhaps of the older variety. Leftist "progressive" Democrats always are trying to get some population to behave and eat its broccoli. Today's Democrats want to go after gun owners and white people. Neocons and Trump want to go after some gun owners, drug sellers and foreign nations, especially those hostile to Israel or to US funny money hegemony. The USA is really really special (don't you know) and misbehaving means death.

  3. The Idiocrat in Chief has lied to his voters and acted contrary to his word so much that most of the Idiocracy can hardly remember what he said he would do to get elected. The propaganda continues
