John Bolton, the former ambassador to the United States is advocating the bombing of Iran. An accurate assessment of what the United States needs to do but fortunately it is too little, too late. I honestly cannot see any of America's plans for the region succeeding and once it is out of Iraq, I think it will never be able to come back to the Middle East. This would be a good thing, since the presence of Israel in the region remains one of the principle causes for it's lack of development, followed closely by poor governance and corruption. A weakened and less influential United States would be conducive to a lot more stability in the region. I like his criticism of individuals who believe they "have passed beyond history", a very good line.
