It’s so nice that everyone else seems to know what the President should do, should have done, should be doing.
John Bolton is the latest in this interview with Spiegel.
Bolton: His foreign policy is in free fall. The president is turning against his own best judgment and instincts under the influence of Secretary (of State Condoleeza) Rice. She is the dominant voice, indeed, almost the only voice on foreign policy in this administration.
He has solutions though: (ie on North Korea)
Bolton: I’m not running around the world looking for ways to create hostilities. The solution to North Korea is the reunification of the Korean Peninsula. China could influence the North; it supplies 80 to 90 percent of North Korea’s energy. The United States have to put pressure on China in order for China to pressure North Korea.
Yes, because pressuring the Chinese works so well. And South Korea is really interested in reunification. ???
He does suggest that the EU start acting like the major power they think they are.
