Last week, President Donald Trump announced that Former Ambassador John Bolton would serve as his next National Security Advisor, replacing General H.R. McMaster. John Bolton was a leading architect of the Iraq War and is known for his radical views. He
has continuously advocated for launching a first-strike against North Korea and scuttling the Nuclear Agreement with Iran without specifying viable nonmilitary alternatives. Simply put, John Bolton’s appointment as National Security Advisor puts the United
States dangerously close to a path to war.
