The lightening Bolt gives a dhimmi what for in Australia. Kevin, Atlas acolyte and publisher of the best Aussie blog, Aussie News and Views, sent this video interview. John Bolton verses an
Australian Labor Party apologist and groupie, Tony Jones on "Their ABC" last
week. Read it all here. Good stuff mate. Actually, spectacular.
Australia: "Their ABC's" Tony Jones, is educated by John Bolton
JOHN BOLTON: Let's get this straight one more time............
TONY JONES: But John Bolton, that assumes it would stop there, that the Iranians wouldn't do anything in response, for example they wouldn't do anything to destabilise the position even further in Iraq or Afghanistan or Lebanon, that they wouldn't use international terrorism, that they wouldn't threaten the West's oil supply?
JOHN BOLTON: You mean as opposed to what they're doing now? Look, if this regime can intimidate us with oil at $80 a barrel but without nuclear weapons, imagine what will happen if Iran gets nuclear weapons. If they can see their way clear to this kind of bluster at this point, what will happen after they actually have the weapons? What's your answer to that?
TONY JONES: Yes, we've been reading and we've heard your response in the past few days to Israeli television about that story about the Israeli strike in Syria. Do you believe it is what unnamed US officials are saying? In other words do you believe it was a strike on a secret Syrian nuclear facility?
JOHN BOLTON: Let me just say for the third time, all of the details are not yet known. But I think it would be unlikely that Israel would risk the possibility of negative consequences from a strike inside Syria unless it was against a very high value target such as a facility involved with weapons of mass destruction. So simple logic points to the direction that this must have been considered an extraordinarily high threat by the Israelis for them to conduct such an operation.
TONY JONES: Now our final question, John Bolton, you'd be aware there's an Australian election coming up, a new Australian government will be in place most likely by the end of this year. If a Labor government were to win, they've promised a unilateral withdrawal of Australian troops from southern Iraq. What do you think the consequences of that would be for security in Iraq?
JOHN BOLTON: Well, I suppose if Australia wants to behave like New Zealand, that's up to you all.
TONY JONES: Would a southern Australian troop withdrawal from Iraq, do you think, have any affect at all on the Australian/US alliance?
JOHN BOLTON: Well, I don't think it would be a positive for it. I don't want to get in the middle of your election campaign, but I think that the present government recognises that the entire world is threatened by the Islamo-fascist threat and has acted accordingly. I think that's important. I don't think anybody should think they're immune. And I think Australia, after the disaster in Indonesia, should understand that very clearly.
TONY JONES: Of course another way of looking at it would be that the government, a Labor government in Australia would simply be acting ahead of a potentially Democratic presidency in the United States and doing much the same thing.
JOHN BOLTON: Well if you think the Democrats are going to win, come back next year at this time and let's see.
