You cannot boogie without a boogieman.

A senior Iranian official has claimed a significant step forward at nuclear talks in Geneva, saying Tehran’s proposed plan for resolving the decade-long impasse over its atomic programme has been accepted.

Abbas Araqchi, the deputy foreign minister, said the six world powers at the talks had “accepted the framework of Iran’s proposal”.

“The aim of both sides is to sign the agreement,” he told Iranian journalists after the first session of talks.

We cannot have that!

John Bolton is reiterating his calls for Israel to unleash a military strike against Iran, saying he doesn’t “think Israel has much time” to make that “fateful decision” and that ultimately it should “have done this years ago.”…

Bolton slammed the Obama administration’s policies towards what he called “Iran’s nuclear weapons program” as “utterly feckless,” and criticized the negotiations the U.S. has undertaken with Iran because they “will lead to a diplomatic victory for Iran.”

Yes, a world where ANYTHING that avoids Iran being bombed, is a victory for Iran and hence a loss for Bolton.

With that kind of sober, rational analysis it’s no wonder that…

In 2016, the most interesting wild card is former UN Ambassador John Bolton. Bolton’s plain spoken “no surrender” approach to America’s role in the world has particular resonance with Republicans who will have watched eight years of President Obama’s “apology tour” with dismay and distress. Bolton’s brand has grown since leaving the Bush administration as Fox News has given him a national audience.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
