John Bolton Insults Anti-War Iraq Vet

Hey guys, I got to confront neo-conservative war monger John Bolton on the issue of blowback during the taping of the Stossel show at last weekend's Students for Liberty Conference... and it made it on the show!

Check it out!

I can not stand the Neo-Con Bolton.

Or any OTHER ambassador to the U.N. for that matter.

This rat should be tried for treason against the United States of America and for supporting war crimes against humanity.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Bolton is

a Luciferian Zionist, who will do everything he can to protect the Synagogue of Satan. Rev 2:9 and 3:9
The original meaning of the word 'synagogue' or 'synagein' in the Greek meaning 'gathering of people', not what is considered today as a building where Jews worship.

Great Job David !

I know David personally!

I served for 7 1/2 years in the USAF, and also saw despicable foreign war survivors that would turn any sane person sick.

You brown nosers that put David down are not doing any good spreading your unappreciated opinions about a fellow uniformed soldier, and should be ashamed of yourselves.

Anybody that's been in a war zone is putting his/her LIFE on the line, and just maybe John Bolton should go grab a gun and join the fray, to really see what happens in wars.

There are NO winners, only dead, wounded, and mentally maimed forever survivors.

Go ask Adam Kokeish what he thinks !


I hate John Bolton

and I honestly hate very, very few people.

Lord, how I wish Death would silence his evil yap forevermore

Begging hands and bleeding hearts
Will only cry out for more...'

I feel the same way. It is

I feel the same way. It is difficult not to hate a man that is so genuinely evil.

David West

I too was in the same unit who deployed with Mr. west. David was no Ranger. Yes he was a member of the unit for a brief period. He proved himself to be such a pathetic excuse for a soldier he was promptly marked for duties no higher than one would consider a clerk. Mr West was caught stealing from the Army and other soldiers in order to further his own personal agenda of a post governmental society.
Do you remember me David? We had several talks about how you act as a man and not hide from the responsibilities of your crimes behind your supposed " conscientious objector" status. I respect a man who stands up for what he believes in. Especially in such a totalitarian place as the Rangers, but you proclaiming you abhorrence to war was only an effort to distract from the stealing from the men who were supposed to be your brothers.

Shame on you David. Shame on you for bringing up the death of a friend of mine. A man you didn't even know.

Can you elaborate on how

Can you elaborate on how stealing from other soldiers and the Army would help him "further his agenda of a post governmental society"? I'm genuinely curious. That claim of yours seems absurd on its face. Care to explain?

Sounds like BS to me.

And I say this as someone who has taken a great deal of flak for criticizing David West myself.

Why would a man with an "personal agenda" of furthering "a post-governmental society" join the military at all? It makes no sense whatsoever.

I can't say what kind of soldier Mr. West was, but I'll say he showed rare courage and integrity standing up to John Bolton, and if I had to lay a bet who is telling the truth here, I'd bet on him, not some guy who shows up using two different screen names to "support" his own veracity.

I wondered the same thing

I wondered the same thing about West when he was there too. I was one of the only guys who sat down with him and tried to reason with him. My only thought was he was like me in a sense. I thought the Army was an entirely different beast than it turned out to be. I left very jaded toward it and my country. Or maybe he saw the military as a way to learn vital skills he may need later in life? I dont know, and I dont much care. All I know is how he conducted himself while assigned to D/3/75. Stealing from my buddies is something I never would have resorted to though.
It's an easy assumption to make that I posted as another person. I can't disprove it, but it simply isn't true.
West and I are exchanging emails now.

What courage does it take to "stand up" to some over inflated Washington fat cat? He asked a provocative question but built his credibility on falsehoods.

I too served with Mr. West

I too served with Mr. West and can confirm that he was the most worthless individual I have ever experienced in my career. He was released from the Regiment if not chaptered out of the Army as a PFC after he claimed to be conscientious objector because either way he was going to be kicked out because he couldn't cut it. Before being booted out he was caught stealing from his fellow Rangers. Mr West is no hero.

Good thing no one is here for what you say. No debate is trying to be started here, just stating facts.

Just because you state "facts" with no proof doesn't make it so!

What is your full name and rank? Are you still active duty? I ask because this is your very first post on DP and we have been inundated with provocateur trolls here as the good Doctor has continued his steady climb toward the Presidency.

Name isn't happening. Not on active duty any more.

As much as I detest all politicians, Ron Paul I ldetest the least. If I thought my vote actually mattered in this country anymore, the good doctor would be getting mine. My comment was and is only directed at Mr. West. Not every guy claiming to be a vet has a heart of gold. His is selfish and immoral.

John Bolton won't Matter next year

He will be out of a job. The ranger is a brave man I would like to see Bolton in the same situation. He is probably a draft dodger someone should look into that.

in an obombya administration...imagine that?

so, who runs this country?

the different gop/dem administrations or the military industrial complex of the nwo?

served with honor? bolton, a draft evader, wouldn't know honor if it swam up and bit him on the ass!

he will answer to these troops someday, all of them, and we'll see how many of them protect him then

John Bolton is a tool for the

John Bolton is a tool for the neocons. He is used by the MSM in their propaganda war against anyone opposing the Military Indistrial Complex. The neocon numbers in the GOP are shrinking, along with his influence. The blood thirsty GOPers are losing in the arena of public opinion (approximately 80% are against the war). He should consider doing a "Got Milk?" ad.

Its so amazing ...

that this idiot still has a job when there are competent people out of work in the US. It really demonstrates just how hopelessly mired in neocon-think the GOP still remains.

Now isn't that amazing!

How Bolton can vomit such nonsense!

On the other hand...the soldier obeyed orders and did exactly what he described he was doing- terrorising people.

Who was worse?

Wow, an edit like that

is so disgusting. How about sending the policymakers to prison who violate the law?

Bolton agenda

This slob is looking for a Cabinet post in the next GOP win. He won't make it as a water boy in the Paul administration.

John Bolton never served. He

John Bolton never served. He attended Yale University, where he shared classes with his friend Clarence Thomas, and was a contemporary of Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham at Yale Law School. He wrote in his Yale 25th reunion book "I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy. I considered the war in Vietnam already lost.

Seems like that was a great disservice as well. Hypocrite.


My applause as well... I wonder if this Bolton character ever served or if any of his offspring ever served.

It always amazes me how they edit things out to sustain their illusions.

Good observation David

Based on this video, the splice took place on or about 1:42. I never saw Stossle to be a hardcore libertarian especially when comparing to the Judge. He is a complete tool. He talks the Milton Fridman soundbytes but hardly ever goes after the Fed or the banks. That is also the reason Stossle keeps his show but the Judge did not.

The Libertarian Party, irrelevant since 1971.

You are a hero

You are a hero for volunteering to protect our country!
You are a hero for risking your life for us!
You are a hero for respecting authority.
You are a hero for reflecting on your assignment.
You are a hero for your courage in questioning authority.
You are a hero for being a voice for millions
You are a hero for standing up for truth.
You are a hero for bringing light to the darkness of deceptive media.
And....You are most honorable! Thank you!


This vdeo hurt deep down

I wish we could 'black bag' some chicken hawks


This is NOT the country our parents raised us to pledge allegiance to.

With all due respect, what is

With all due respect, what is with the toothpick or whatever that was? That did not enhance your message.

Hey gmw, yeah all of us most likely saw the toothpick, but he

has a right to do what he wants with his body, right? Isn't that what part of this revolution is about? He stood up and question blow back and what he saw as the cause of it. I commend him for doing that as all of us do I am sure. That is what is important here on this post. He served and is alive to tell about it, thank God.
