The following quote is from the news article:

Democracy Post editor Christian Caryl says President Trump’s new national security adviser is more capable than other officials. That’s the problem.

Opinion writer March 23

Because John Bolton is five things President Trump is not — intelligent, educated, principled, articulate and experienced — and because of Bolton’s West Wing proximity to a president responsive to the most recent thought he has heard emanating from cable television or an employee, Bolton will soon be the second-most dangerous American. On April 9, he will be the first national security adviser who, upon taking up residence down the hall from the Oval Office, will be suggesting that the United States should seriously consider embarking on war crimes.

The first two charges against the major Nazi war criminals in the 1945-1946 Nuremberg trials concerned waging aggressive war. Emboldened by the success, as he still sees it, of America’s Iraq adventure that began 15 years ago this month, Bolton, for whom a trade war with many friends and foes is insufficiently stimulating, favors real wars against North Korea and Iran. Both have odious regimes, but neither can credibly be said to be threatening an imminent attack against the United States. Nevertheless, Bolton thinks bombing both might make the world safer. What could go wrong?

Much is made of the fact that Bolton is implacably hostile to strongman Vladimir Putin, whom the U.S. president, a weak person’s idea of a strong person, admires. And of the fact that the president has repeatedly execrated the invasion of Iraq that Bolton advocated. So, today among the uneducable, furrowed brows express puzzlement: How can the president square his convictions with Bolton’s? Let’s say this one more time: Trump. Has. No. Convictions.

  1. One would have to be deranged, delusional and mentally, morally and culturally degenerate to characterize the pencil necked geek, patronizing, pontificating elitist, from his nether regions bloviating, deep politicstypes arse-wiper, George will, as being being from “the left” Moreover, to suggest that Donald Il Douche is a “common sense President”, seriously causes one to question the dearth of your mental acuity. Your inanity has crossed the border into insanity

    That be said, and notwithstanding my utter contempt for Will, i agree that Bolton is a “clear and present danger to the USA and to the world. Bolton’s maniacal evil make Ted Bundy and Charlie Manson look like pussies.

  2. George Will and his pals on the left love excoriating any common sense President like Trump. He a slow thinking intellectual views any one else as mentally deficient. Never mind that G. Will is commenting on lives of others and unlike Trump has not achieved anything that took courage, risk, investment of own funds, planning and foresight. He writes self serving hit pieces common to losers armed with a pen who could not find their way out of a paper bag.
