John Bolton: Are You High Or Something?

Angry Biker "What the hell, bro?"
Ron Burgundy: "Hello, neighbor."
Angry Biker: "Did you just throw a burrito out your window, huh?"
Ron Burgundy: "I believe I did."
Angry Biker: "What, are you high or something? Did you see what happened?"

If the Green Zone of Baghdad, a heavily protected, bomb-proof area where the Americans can have a little slice of heaven in the middle of hell is a metaphor for the embattled White House, it would explain the delusion of those former staffers so close to the top.

Case in point- John Bolton discussing a possible attack by Israel on Iran:
The Arab world would be "pleased" by Israeli strikes against Iranian nuclear facilities, he said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.

"It [the reaction] will be positive privately. I think there'll be public denunciations but no action," he said.

Yes, after not paying enough attention to Afghanistan to the point where the Taliban is still able to launch attacks, making an absolute shit show of Iraq and destabilizing the region and Iraq's borders, I mean, why would the arab world object to even more bombing by western forces?

Yes, it's true that Saudi Arabia does not get along with Iran, but guess what? If Iran is bombed, what do you think the Shias of Iraq, Saudi Arabia and the Emirates will think? What do you think they will do?

It gets better:
Mr Bolton, an unflinching hawk who proposes military action to stop Iran developing nuclear weapons, bemoaned what he sees as a lack of will by the Bush administration to itself contemplate military strikes.

Holy crap - John Bolton just made W. look good. How did he do that?
