Read John Bolton‘s highly cited op-ed in the Hill. Bolton warns that in the last six months, Iran has made six more months of progress toward posing a mortal threat to America and its allies.

Bolton is a very heavy-hitter and has often been decribed as a neoconservative.

The article is critical of Obama‘s deal with Iran and more importantly it cites Trump’s team’s turning a blind eye to the evidence coming from Iran.

Iran’s geopolitical influence has increased because of Obama’s disasterous Middle East policy. Now Iran looks to gain leverage in both Iraq and Syria because of Trump’s weakness. Already right wing sources in Israel are arguing in favour of Israeli unilateral action against Iranian interests.

Surely, it’s time to remove Team Trump before they precipitate another Middle East war and possibly WWIII?

The cancellation of Boris Johnson’s trip to Moscow puts Britain in its place in the world | Editorial – The Independent

The Independent argues that the decision by Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, to cancel his visit to Moscow to meet Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, on Monday is a disappointing admission of Britain’s irrelevance in world affairs. It argues that it would have been a significant trip, the first by a British foreign secretary for five years.

The article concludes by questioning the dream of many Brexiteers of ‘Britain as a powerful, buccaneering nation, charting its own course in world’.

Whilst Theresa May was one of the first global leaders to offer public support to Trump for his Syrian intervention last week, it is clear that the ‘Special Relationship‘ is not so special with Boris as FS.
