Bolton: 'The Israelis would be thrilled'

I assume that many of you have heard already that former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton told Fox News yesterday that the US should bomb training camps in Iran that are preparing Hezbullah terrorists to confront US troops in Iraq. I just watched the video from Fox for the first time, and Bolton has a couple of comments on Israel. There's one earlier in the interview but from the 3:00 mark of this interview and on, it's all about Israel.

Let's go to the videotape and then I'll have a couple of comments.

For those who haven't seen it yet, the story about Iran having nukes by mid-2009 is here. It's not really that much different than what Transportation Minister (and former Defense Minister and IDF Chief of Staff) Shaul Mofaz said last week. As to Bolton's suggestion to bomb the training camps in Iran, I'm all in favor. But I'd like to see them get the nuclear installations at the same time.

What Bolton is saying, and what most people already know is that the U.S. administration and the State Department are, by not stopping the bad guys from killing American soldiers, in reality rewarding them and encouraging them to be even more brazen in their adventures. It’s the same administration and State Department that are pushing Israel to take this enormously ill advised leap of faith in trusting an enemy that continues to promote the eventual destruction of the state of Israel. If an individual were to manifest such an affinity for someone who wanted nothing but harm for them, psychiatrists and even society would judge that individual to be mentally ill. Seeing that behavior in an individual, a ‘normal’ person would almost certainly avoid taking advice or direction from that person. It’s beyond my ability to understand what makes it different between governments.

And another thumbs up to the UN--speaking of sound international judgment.

Way to stop the growth and resurgence of Hezbollah. Another check mark in the long column of UN successes.
