Regime Change, Partition, and “Sunnistan”: John Bolton’s Vision for a New Middle East

Bolton is likely to push for the creation of a new sectarian state out of Syrian and Iraqi territory, now that the groundwork has been laid and the path largely cleared to building a “new Middle East.” Iran is currently the only country in the region with the potential to foil that plan.

Part 9 - Bolton dangerous and in a hurry

Bolton as Trump’s National Security Adviser not only means that war with Iran is imminent. It is a portent of coming attempts to entirely remake the Middle East in service to Israel’s ambitions and quest to become an “imperial regional power.

However, given Bolton’s recent statements, neither war with Iran nor attempts to redraw the borders of the Middle East are events to be delayed to some distant future.

Indeed, Bolton recently promised Iranian opposition groups that regime change in Iran would occur before next year. Not only that, but the groundwork for partitioning Iraq and Syria has already been laid, thanks to the 2003 invasion of Iraq and the Trump administration’s current attempts to turn control of occupied Syria over to the Saudis.

Thus, Bolton’s appointment is as timely as it is dangerous.

As Richard Painter, the former chief White House ethics lawyer in the George W. Bush administration, recently remarked: “Hiring [Bolton] as the president’s top national security advisor is an invitation to war, perhaps nuclear war. This must be stopped at all costs.
