President Donald Trump finally appointed John Bolton as the National security advisor. He is the former ambassador to the United Nations in the administration of Bush. John replaces National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster on Thursday afternoon.
Bolton’s new job was declared on the evening of Thursday when the president tweeted that McMaster planned to resign and Bolton would replace him. “I am pleased to announce that, effective 4/9/18, [John Bolton] will be my new National Security Advisor”.
Jhon Bolton the most aggressive voice
He is considered as one of the most rational and aggressive voices in American foreign policy. Bolton is famous for giving the statement that the United States must announce war on both North Korea and Iran.
Also, he was believably suspect of deploying US intelligence on weapons of mass destruction. He was also known for giving rude and obnoxious treatment to his subordinates.
He once “kidded” about bashing 10 stories off the UN office block in New York. This also means that trump new appointment represents to be the most significant national security official in the White House.
It is not all about Bolton. He had been also whispered to be the leader for the job for months. However, that doesn’t make any big pick.
But his connections to anti-Muslim groups.
Track record in government and also stated aggressive opinions in public speeches makes us doubt on Trump decision. These things also show that he will definitely drive Trump to take very risky positions on dangerous issues such as North Korea, Iran, and ISIS.
Have a look at John Bolton’s early career – this shows he is a dangerous choice
Afterward graduating Yale Law School in 1974. He had become friends with future Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Then he went into private practice in Washington.
As he made a name for himself after working in conservative politics. He became a vice president of the right-wing American Enterprise Institute. Here is aiding in midlevel roles in the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations.
Bush chose him to be undersecretary of state for arms control in May 2001. Principally the top diplomat concentrating on weapons of mass destruction. This position considered justly significant in the run-up to the Iraq War. It is so because of the Bush administration’s case in contradiction of Saddam Hussein intensive on his alleged nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons.
Bolton said the very dangerous and hard lines. He convincingly claimed that Iraq had WMDs — “we are confident that Saddam Hussein has hidden weapons of mass destruction,” as he put in one 2002 speech.
Furthermore, he was allegedly involved in determining US intelligence in the approach to the war which should be in a good way. In 2002, Bolton’s staff set a speech claiming that Cuba had a vigorous biological weapons program. But This was never true. In this matter, the Bolton also badly screamed on the State Department’s lead bioweapons analyst.
This is one of the most aggressive incidents of Bolton but there are many more. Hope the choice of president trump may prove to be fruitful for the nation. As the security of the nation is in the hands of NSA.
However, the one who is offensive and believes in war many times proves to be dangerous.
