#1 His hiring was more surprising

#2 Make him point-man on North Korea. That'll get Kim's attention.

#3 I heard he was the one who advised against meeting the talibaners. For some reason, the idea of 'image' is more important to Bolton than actual strategy.

Gen. John Keene and Frank Gaffney are good replacements ?

#4 Yes, Bolton was against the Taliban, murders of many US Troops signing a "peace" agreement at Camp David when the Madrassas did not teach them to read, or write, or the proper definition of such words as Peace.

#5 That is something that needs to be avenged, and the best vengeance can be effected only when the troops are out of there. Bolton wanted the troops to stay.

This 'managing of expectations' is what Trump is tired of, I think. Obviously he wants to exit the hellhole completely.

#6 Now we shall see Bolton transformed (in mass media) from Darth Vader to Anakin Skywalker.

#7 The big problem is that there are only two factions in Western politics as far as the so called WoT is concerned:

One advocates ending the war by losing it.

The other one advocates not losing the war by prolonging it indefinitely.

Ending the war by making the enemy lose (and us win) is a notion that is verboten, apparently.

#8 Ousted National Security advisor John Bolton calls Donald Trump a LIAR for claiming he was fired and insists he resigned, amid claims the pair clashed over president’s plan to host the Taliban at Camp David
