I've run out of John Bolton material. So read this instead.

Even after spending a year and a half in prison in Tehran, I knew that if I wanted to go on writing about Iran, I would be a target for plenty of public attacks despite the abuse I had suffered at the hands of the Islamic Republic. And so it has been.

But I never imagined the U.S. State Department would be funding my attackers.

Our State Department has deemed Jason Rezaian too friendly with the Iranian government.

Hopefully we’re not going to war over a Japanese tanker that was probably wasn’t attacked by Iran.

A war with Iran has seemed inevitable since the Axis of Evil speech, so I am impressed that some weird coalitions have delayed the war as long as they have. Presumably President Mike Pence would listen more to John Bolton than Vladimir Putin though.

It feels like these efforts to get a war going are too half assed and cliquish to work, but maybe that’s just my hope.

I want to believe that but they will keep trying until they get their war.

It seems ridiculous but might be an attempt to log this publicly as an escalating incident. On the other hand, Tom Cotton is ready to go
