Bolton: Little Alternative to Iran Strike

Why can't we get Mr Bolton for Vice President? Or Sec of State? Or anything to keep him helping to make policy? I would vote for him over any of the three Liberals running for President today.

This guy is a genius who tells it straight. We need more people like him in Washington. - Bolton: Little Alternative to Iran Strike: "Military action against Iran would be a last resort but the United States and its allies have not done enough to promote the alternative, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said on Wednesday.

John Bolton, who was a leading hawk in President George W. Bush's administration, told an audience at the Hay literary Festival that five years of 'failed' negotiation with Iran over its nuclear program had left just two options for dealing with the issue -- regime change and use of force.

'The use of military force is an extremely unattractive option and only to be used as a last resort,' he said, adding he would favor regime change.

Bolton said the elements for regime change were present in Iran -- the economy was in difficulties, young Iranians could see the possibility of a different life and there were ethnic tensions within the country.

But he added that the United Nations and its allies had not done enough to bring about the required change.

'I wish that we had had a much more vigorous policy five years ago,' he said."
