    Bolton Slams Obama For Being ‘Timid’ On Iran, Then Admits U.S. Options Limited Because Of Bush’s Failures

       

    BOLTON: Well, it’s not at all what they want, and you know what’s worst of all about this, looking at President Obama, is not only that he’s being timid, he’s being disingenuous. The real reason that he won’t speak out has nothing to do with this argument that we don’t want to meddle. [...]

       [Obama] is abandoning the people in the streets and not providing any possibility of concrete assistance to them.

       [Obama] is abandoning the people in the streets and not providing any possibility of concrete assistance to them.BOLTON: Well, I think it’s mostly right except I would say this.

    Because including during the Bush administration we did not prepare adequately for this potential revolutionary moment, we’re not really in a position now to offer much concrete assistance.

       And I don’t want America to be in a position where we urge people in the streets and then watch them die. I’d rather be a little bit prudent and prepare for the long-term where we really can provide concrete assistance.

    So basically, Bolton wants Obama to stand with the Iranian protestors and provide the "possibility of concrete assistance," even though he also thinks the United States is in no position "where we really can provide concrete assistance"?

    Insurance, Oil, Banking, and Defense corporations all have a substantial equity positions in what's supposed to be our Congress.
