Former United States National Security adviser John Bolton has resumed his public activities today after he has resigned - according to his own version - or having been dismissed - according to Donald Trump's - less than three weeks ago. He has done it in his style: whipping left and right and, in particular, North Korea. And, through her, to her former boss: Donald Trump.
In his reappearance, in the 'think tank' Center for International and Strategic Studies (CSIS), Bolton has displayed his ingenuity. "The People's Republic of North Korea can become the Wal-Mart or the Amazon of delivering nuclear weapons," he said, with his usual sarcasm. The Wal-Mart department store is the largest private company in the world. Amazon needs no introduction. So, by comparing both companies with the Pyongyang regime, Bolton was making it clear that North Korea, in his opinion, can become the world center for nuclear weapons trafficking.
The former National Security adviser - a neoconservative who continues to defend the 2003 invasion of Iraq , something few American politicians do - kicked off Donald Trump with fierce indirect criticism. "I am very happy to be here. And I am sure Kim Jong-un is also very happy that I am here," he said, by way of greeting. Bolton's thesis is that Trump's policy of negotiating and lifting sanctions against North Korea is a danger to US national security .
The former National Security adviser, who was already a US ambassador to the UN with George W. Bush, also defends a tougher line with respect to Iran and already in June recommended bombing that country after Tehran was shot down from a spy plane American unmanned.
