Bolton: “Hezbollah Is A Cancer Within Lebanon” (Video)
Ambassador Bolton was on tonight’s H&C to, obviously, talk about the current crisis in the Middle East. Any clip of JB is worth posting, but this one is particularly informative. Bolton weighs in on Syrian and Iranian involvement and also addresses the report today, from the “occasionally accurate” British press, which alleges that the United States is pressuring Israel to end its offensive by the end of next week. Sorry, no hints. You’ll have to watch for JB’s response.
But I will give you a little taste of Bolton talking about the war on terror in general:
HANNITY: Is the world at war with Islamic facism?
BOLTON: Well, I think the Islamic facists are at war with us. We have no interest in changing the way they live in their particular countries, to follow their own beliefs. But it’s their aggressive use of terror and force almost exclusively against civilians which brought them into conflict with us.
A ripping answer, if I do say so.
