Bolton is part of the swamp that I think Trump thought he was draining, yet Trump has allowed himself to be taken in by advisers who wanted Bolton, the swamp monster, into power again to wreak havoc on the world.
I resigned 16 years ago from the Bush administration in opposition to Bush's war on Iraq. Tragically another administration led by the same swamp monsters are propelling the U.S. into an unnecessary and horrific military confrontation with Iran.
President Trump probably does not know that Iran is a country of 80 million people that has withstood 40 years of sanctions from the U.S. after the Iranian revolution in 1979 and it has a military that has as much battle experience in Syria as the U.S. has. Iran is a country that battled a U.S. sponsored war from Iraq from 1980-1988 and doesn't remember Donald Rumsfeld handing chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein. Iran suffered over 1 million deaths from that war.
Trump probably does not know that Iran is a large country, definitely not the small geographic and population size of countries that U.S. is normally attacks, invades and occupies.
Iran is no Grenada that had 96,000 persons when the U.S. invaded in 1983.
Iran is no Somalia that had a population of 6 million in 1993 when the U.S. invaded.
Iran is no Panama that had 2.5 million inhabitants in 1989 when the U.S. invaded.
Iran is no Afghanistan that had 20 million in 2001 when the U.S. invaded.
Iran is no Iraq that had 20.6 million persons in 2003 when the U.S. invaded.
