Who is John Bolton? "Tough Guy," Vietnam Draft Dodger

Joining a long and illustrious list of privileged boys who start wars but never have to fight in them, it turns out John Bolton, Mister Let's Attack Iran, took an easy way when it was his turn to fight.

It is not surprising that Bolton supported the Vietnam War while at Yale and might have even debated in favor of it as a member of the Yale Political Union. But when his draft number came up 185, Johnny Boy copped to the Guard. Since the National Guard units across America were full of boys doing exactly the same thing, almost guaranteed stateside service rather than nasty ambushes in the jungle, it sometimes took some doing to get in.

Of course the most famous incarnation of this story is when when coke head party boy George W. Bush might have got the help of his congressman daddy to score a coveted spot in the Air National Guard, before his lily white ass found itself in a rice paddy, surrounded by dedicated Asian men with a desperate urge to kill Americans, and possessing the latest in automatic weapons.

Bush didn't even bother to show up for duty. A 2004 article run in the UK Guardian reported:

"...outside Houston, in Texas, a 26-year-old named George Bush, a lieutenant in the National Guard, reported for drill duty as usual at Ellington air force base...That, at any rate, is the impression given by military payroll records released by the Bush administration on Tuesday. Apparently, however, Lt Bush's superiors at Ellington didn't see it that way. In an annual evaluation of his performance...they conceded that they couldn't actually evaluate his performance, because they hadn't seen him for months."

Another famed Vietnam War hawk and National Guardsman during the Vietnam draft era is former Vice President Dan Quayle, another child of privilege from Indiana whose grandpappy was a newspaper magnate, whose properties included the Arizona Republic and the Indianapolis Star... snip

...Of interest is that while John Bolton, during his Guard service, bravely lugged briefcases and and accordion files up the Justice Department steps, as an intern for super pro-Vietnam War hawk Vice President Spiro Agnew, other boys took his place in the rice paddies. This is revealed in a 2018 Daily Beast article "The Fallen Heroes Who Went to Vietnam in John Bolton’s Place."

Drawing the same draft lottery number, 185, because his birthday was the same, November 20th, one blue collar boy, Jerry Miller, displayed the manner of men we lost to that conflict when he was wounded by a rocket, but managed to radio for assistance when he saw other of his unit more gravely wounded, and declined help when the medics arrived until the rest of the men were taken care of.... more: hubpages.com/politics/Who-is-John-Bolton-Tough-Guy-Vietnam-Draft-Dodger

Turns out these people were prophets!

RELATED: John Bolton, A Chickenhawk Bully Who Reflects Trump Perfectly

2018: When Donald Trump mentioned the other day that he is “finally” assembling a cabinet and staff that please him, he was foreshadowing this week’s appointment of John Bolton — a dubious figure whose characteristics and history resemble nobody so much as Trump himself.

Those resemblances go well beyond the obvious, namely that Bolton is a dangerous crank whose monotone of belligerence could lead the United States toward actual hostilities against North Korea, Iran, or both, with unforeseeable consequences. In those crude policy positions he certainly fits well with the boorish aggression of his new boss. Their only difference is over the invasion and occupation of Iraq, a disastrous decision that Bolton, unlike Trump, continues to praise — presumably because he advanced the lies that made it possible.

Bolton is an anti-Muslim extremist and conspiracy theorist who fervently supported Trump’s unlawful “ban” on Muslim immigration, and he was a longtime aide to the late Senator Jesse Helms, an unapologetic North Carolina “white nationalist.”Beyond ideology and prejudice, however, Bolton and Trump appear much alike in their ugly, harshly overbearing style. When George W. Bush named him as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations — a nomination twice rejected by the Senate — one top State Department official described him as someone who “kissed up and kicked down.” Carl W. Ford, who had served as chief of the department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research, testified: “I’ve never seen anybody quite like Bolton … I don’t have a second, third or fourth in terms of the way that he abuses his power and authority with little people.”

Like Trump, Bolton is a tough-talking draft-dodger. While Trump cited “bone spurs” in one of his feet as a reason to avoid the Vietnam draft, Bolton — a Goldwater conservative — dodged service in the war he vocally endorsed by joining the Maryland National Guard. “I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy,” he said in 1995. “I considered the war in Vietnam already lost.” Now this pair of chickenhawks may well send other young men and women to their deaths in war.... https://www.nationalmemo.com/john-bolton-chickenhawk-bully-reflects-trump/

Apparently, The Donald has Made Draft Dodging Great Again! Amazing to see so called "Conservatives" embrace that which they fought (so to speak) for so long. :D (3 images)

Who is John Bolton? The guy every conservative wanted in Trump's cabinet because he wasn't going to take any shit from any foreign country.

So shut up.

There's nothing "conservative" about Trotskyite warmongering, ya progressive bushbot commie libtard. Trump will take unlimited amounts of shit from Israel, Saudi Arabia, France, UK (FUKUS), Mexico, Canada, NAFTA (USMCA), NATO, and any and all other globalist NWO scum.

So STFU! Perhaps the one decent thing Trump has done in his life is, refusing to fight in LBJ's dirty war.

whitey's a neocon - not a true conservative as evidenced by his obsessive and infantile authority fetish.

Stone is the same - both clamoring for war with Iran.

As for the warmongering chicken-hawk (Bolton was a supporter of the Vietnam War, but purposely avoided military service in Vietnam) Bolton:

John Bolton, the PNAC Platooner, the Iraq War cheerleader, the lying scumbag, the man so nutty, hateful, and stupid that even the Republican-controlled Senate Bush enjoyed from 2003 to 2007 refused, twice, to confirm him as our United Nations ambassador (and the second time came after he’d had the gig for over a year due to a recess appointment).

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

Both certified psychopaths.
