Neither of those two countries are wonderful places, but to deliberately rush to war for the sake of war is worse than insane. Bolton has, for years, been a warmongering talking head on Fox News, where he possibly first came to Trump's attention, given the hours each day he spends watching television in the Oval Office.
Bolton's instinct to go to war, rather than seeking diplomatic solutions, does not bode well. Does his appointment, which does not require Senate confirmation, suggest that Trump thinks a sudden war will distract the American people from his disastrously incompetent and corrupt presidency?
Let's hope and pray that's not the case. Stay tuned.
