If there ever was a time when the nation and the world should quake with terror, it is NOW, with the announcement that Trump is firing H. R. McMaster and replacing him with John Bolton. Bolton is an absolute out and out nut case who despises diplomacy and believes whole-heartedly in forcible regime change. He is a longtime neocon hawk who was one of the sponsors of the war on Iraq – and we know just how well that turned out – so look out Iran, North Korea and . . . Russia. Because he will be advising and encouraging one of the most unstable and suggestable leaders ever entrusted with any high political office, nuclear war may well be on the near horizon.
