President Trump just fired his third National Security Adviser John Bolton, in a move that can help him from present and future wars, and bring him closer to peace and diplomacy with America’s foes – namely Iran, North Korea, and the Taliban in Afghanistan.
The sudden firing of Bolton, a foreign policy hawk who has been pushing for military interventions across the world, was welcomed by Trump’s critics and even some of his allies, many of whom had expressed concerns about Bolton’s war agenda.
Joe Cirincione, who used to sit on the State Department’s International Security Advisory Board, referred to John Bolton as “a disaster” in one conversation we had. Cirincione told me that “in his short tenure, John Bolton did tremendous damage to the security interests of this country. He destroyed key pillars of nuclear security, disparaged critical global security alliances and diminished the prestige and standing of America.”
