John Bolton Is Wrong Again

This afternoon John Bolton wrote an essay for the WashPo that called the Bill Clinton trip to N. Korea a mistake. Since Pres. Clinton's visit was unexpected Bolton must have rushed to write this essay. Perhaps he should have taken a little more time. Bolton writes:
"The point to be made on the Clinton visit is that the knee-jerk impulse for negotiations above all inevitably brings more costs than its advocates foresee. Negotiating from a position of strength, where the benefits to American interests will exceed the costs, is one thing. Negotiating merely for the sake of it, in the face of palpable recent failures, is something else indeed"
I guess talking does work. John Bolton consistency under pressure. Is he always wrong? Sphere: Related Content
