From the group that promised Iraq would be a cakewalk

They have a suggestion about Iran....

It wasn't really Iraq they wanted to go to war with, but with Iran. Iraq was supposed to fall in six weeks or so, pop Chalabi into Hussein's chair, and then attack Iran. Didn't work out that way. But the neocons still can't let go of the wonderful plan they had to take over all the oil fields and control the world.

John Bolton dreams on:
Yesterday, on Fox’s Hannity and Colmes, Iran war hawk John Bolton said that Israel’s recent bombing campaign in Gaza is all the more reason for the United States to bomb Iran now. “So while our focus obviously is on Gaza right now, this could turn out to be a much larger conflict,” he said, adding that “we’re looking at potentially a multi-front war here.” “You would strike Iran right now?” asked host Alan Colmes. “I would have done it before this,” Bolton responded. Colmes asked whether tensions and war across Middle East would escalate if the U.S. or Israel were to bomb Iran. Bolton said that the many Arab countries would secretly be cheering if Iran were attacked
It's hard to leave your own comfortable reality for the biting cold slap of truth....

Effing Bolton is certifiable. He should be committed to a prison for the (war) criminally insane.

But he's so dynamic and stuff! He and his mustache went to Plato's Retreat! He hates the UN even though he worked there!

Actually I think the requirement to join the inner ranks of the PNAC was to be brain dead....

I notice that he didn't mention that most Arab countries would cheer at this point if the US was bombed, thanks to our disaster in Iraq and the actions of the Israelis.

He does have the basic requirement for being a pundit on TV - he's never right about anything.

Wasn't it "The Thatcher Memorial Home For Incurable Tyrants and Kings"?

When, not if, Bryan. He and Kristol have been blazingly wrong for years but they keep on getting air time...

Lol, Map! It would be packed with all of the Bush family and their administrations....

His 15 minutes were over a long time ago.

Why on earth do they keep giving the neocon twit air time? And they tell us the media is soooo liberal.

Usually people learn from their mistakes. Then again, we are talking about anti-intellectual type people who think learning is bad. At least this disccusion about a potential poorly planned and managed attack on Iran is but a mute point with BushCo out. I hope.

The neocons were this close to making their dreams come true... this close!

Hard to give up on it just because it won't work, the world would rise up and smash the US as a rogue terrorist nation, and the economy has fallen into the abyss.

They were this close, man!
