the patient lived, so the operation must have been a failure

If anyone had any doubts about what bloodthirsty whack-job former US UN Ambassador John Bolton is, then take a gander at his speech to some British Tory delegates at their annual party congress.

Much, rightly, will be made of Bolton’s assertion that he sees no other option than to bomb Iran, and then “remove” President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but I want to highlight another point that basically sums up what passes for logic in the utterly fetid mind of the former “diplomat” and current American Enterprise Institute fellow.

In the words of the Guardian, Bolton “mocked” the British approach to the April capture of 15 of their naval personnel by Iran. Iran accused the sailors of entering Iranian waters.

After less than two weeks of quiet diplomacy (with Syria mediating between Iran and the UK), all 15 were returned—alive—to Great Britain.
