Part 4 - ‘Donald Trump may have just effectively declared war on Iran’
The announcement that John Bolton – perhaps the best known advocate for war with Iran in American politics – would soon replace H.R. McMaster as National Security Adviser received mixed reactions within the United States and, as MintPress recently noted, great praise from Israel.
However, news that Bolton would soon have a key role in the Trump administration caused panic among Iranians and Iranian-Americans as well as anti-war advocates.
In response to Bolton’s appointment, Trita Parsi, the president of the National Iranian American Council, issued a statement, warning: “Donald Trump may have just effectively declared war on Iran. With the appointment of John Bolton, and nomination of Mike Pompeo at State, Trump is clearly putting together a war cabinet.”
