I disagree with Tucker Carlson on many things, but it’s always nice when he tears ethnic cleansers and warmongers to pieces. He has recently called blood sucker John Bolton a “tapeworm.” Why? Well, the warmonger was asking Washington to bomb Iran again. Carlson added:
“Only in foreign policy circles do people say things that stupid. In fact, last night was a high point in the Trump presidency. … Ill-advised wars are like doing cocaine: The initial rush rises your poll numbers, but the crash is inevitable and in this case, it would be horrible.”
Carlson was just warming up. He added:
“John Bolton is a kind of bureaucratic tapeworm. Try as you might, you can’t expel him. He seems to live forever in the bowels of the federal agencies, periodically reemerging to cause pain and suffering — but critically somehow never suffering himself.
“His life really is Washington in a nutshell: Blunder into obvious catastrophes again and again, refuse to admit blame, and then demand more of the same. That’s the John Bolton life cycle. In between administration jobs, there are always cushy think-tank posts, paid speaking gigs, cable news contracts. War may be a disaster for America, but for John Bolton and his fellow neocons, it is always good business.”
I agree completely. Bolton wants blood virtually everywhere. He wants blood in the Middle East and Venezuela. Why? Well, the guy has been a raging bull for the Israeli regime since the beginning of time. Last year, Bolton declared: “According to the mullahs in Tehran, we are ‘the Great Satan,’ lord of the underworld, master of the raging inferno.”
Well, is this entirely false, Mr. Bolton? Didn’t the United States destroy Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria for Israel? Didn’t political whores like you send a six-trillion dollar bill to the average American? Didn’t the United States overthrow a democratically elected president in Iran in 1953? Hasn’t the United States been going around the Middle East and destroying countries at will?
Moreover, isn’t “the Great Satan” an apt description of what the Zionist States of America is doing in the Middle East for Israel? Don’t the United States and Israel continue to lie about Iran’s nuclear program? Doesn’t the United States continue to send decent American soldiers to their horrific deaths in the Middle East for Israel?
“More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans.”
So, if Bolton doesn’t like the term “the great Satan,” then what do you call an entity that continues to drink the blood of other people virtually all over the world? What do you call a wicked ideology that never stops to destroy one country after another in the name of “democracy” and “freedom”?
