Bolton, Pompeo, Pottinger, Cotton are all far-right white supremacists. They believe everything the Nazis believed in. They are complete psychopaths. It’s a mental illness.

But if you were to vote in the election that would not be a consideration then either? Because you do bring in personal judgement when you vote and that vote is involved in international geopolitics.
Also, that is extremism whether you like it or not. Logical and extremism are not two ends of any spectrum.

Votes depend on the candidate and their stance on issues that are important, that is all. All politics is local, all international geopolitics is not, by definition. Furthermore, judgement of a candidate's personal life is immaterial, but an assessment of their thoughts on issues is the only thing that is relevant. And logic is born of dispassionate reasoning, whereas extremism is born of ideological fanaticism, so they are very different.

So if you voted in the Biden v Trump election the votes for either side didn't support their international policy?

Now we are going too off topic in this thread, but yes, I did vote in that election. Their taxation policy was far more important to me than their international policies, for example.

I didn't mean specifically you. let me rephrase: So if one voted in the Biden v Trump election the votes for either side didn't support their international policy?

That is where the US system comes into play, with its branches with defined areas and included due processes. International policies are the net result.

Well most likely he is given his latest mutterings...

To get back on track, the correct title of this thread is:

The Taliban could get their hands on up to 150 Pakistani nuclear weapons after America's catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan, says Trump's former security adviser John Bolton
