    Yeah. Bolton is a good man but he was at cross purposes with President Trump when he pushed his neocon hawkish views promoting isolation of our enemies and/or military action that has failed dismally now for decades. President Trump shrugs off all the status quo mentality of dealing with 'enemy' nations and is trying unconventional and different approaches. He is getting mixed results but he certainly isn't making things worse as Clinton, Bush 43, and Obama did.

    I, personally, like Bolton, he was hilarious on RedEye with Greg Gutfeld, but he is very much a warhawk, and I'm not for these perpetual wars everywhere

    to me, having never served in the military, my opinion will differ, but, war is a sometimes necessary evil, that should only be entered into in the most dire of circumstances
    protracted war that never ends is not something I'd ever support

    Of course all the news I am hearing from the main stream media tries to spin it so as to make Trump look bad. Imagine that if you can!

    I feel the President should have the advisers of his choosing. With that said, I've always agreed with the idea of fighting 'them' over there, not here.

    As we look back 18 years ago, one of the signs I remember well, "President Bush, Bomb Afghanistan tonight!"

    Meeting with the Taliban at Camp David? Not my idea of a good one.

    We have now been spending treasure and precious blood in Afghanistan for 18 years. Nothing we have tried up until now has worked. President Trump is actively working to get us out of there, and if he has to meet with the Devil himself to find a way to end it, I'm for it.

    I listened to a couple of Tucker Carlson's shows in which he was strongly opposed to Bolton and his proposed strategies and his eagerness to use military power to work our will on the world. He was saying Trump really goofed with that appointment and needed to get rid of him fast. I hedged my bets as to whether Tucker was right or not about that, most especially when I like Bolton. But now that others are coming out with much the same opinion, I think there may have been something to that.

    Of course the media and Democrats went apolectic when the unsuitable and horrible Bolton was appointed in the first place. But now that Trump has fired him, Bolton has become their fair haired poster child representing another wonderful person Trump has purged.

    The hypocrisy and intellectual dishonesty is sickening.

    It is difficult for many Americans to accept the fact that we have been at war for 18 years and that we haven't ended it. Anything Trump wants to try to end this war is fine with me as long as we end it knowing that it is a victory for America and freedom. Whether that is a full out attack or a peace treaty remains to be seen but if it means more war then we need to do it with the idea of winning and coming home, SOON!

    as far as I'm concerned, we should just bomb the sh*t out of all points the Taliban has control over, and that include using the MOAB on them, just bomb them back to the Neolithic Age
