Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton says it is definitely in America’s interest to see the Assad regime collapse in Syria but he recommends no direct U.S. role at this time. Bolton says President Obama is not demonstrating that he understands the significance of the Syrian crisis and he hears Obama may be willing to agree to Iranian nukes in exchange for Iran abandoning its friends in Damascus. Amb. Bolton also scolds the Obama administration for making many concessions to Russia on missile defense and other issues but failing in every way to end Russian support of Syria and Iran. Finally, Bolton assesses the latest developments in Egypt, where he says there are no good options. He says the military and Muslim Brotherhood will likely find a way to work together and that anything close to a representative democracy won’t be a reality there anytime soon.
