Bolton is ‘war fanatic’ working to destroy peace – Pyongyang

RT | May 27, 2019

US National Security Advisor John Bolton is a “war fanatic” and “defective human product” who works to destroy peace rather than maintain it, North Korea’s Foreign Ministry has said.

The tough assessment, cited by state news agency KCNA, comes after Donald Trump’s adviser lambasted Pyongyang for recently carrying out short-range missile tests. Bolton described the drills as “no doubt” violating UN resolutions.

Hitting back, North Korea’s Foreign Ministry argued that scrapping missile tests completely would hamper the country’s national security.

“Banning launches using ballistic technology is equal to telling us to give up our right to self defence.”

The ministry official added that even in the US Bolton is well-known as a “war fanatic” and that such a “human defect must go away as soon as possible.”

Earlier in May, the North Korean military test-fired a number of rockets and missiles. Washington’s war hawks were quick to cite it as another reason to mount pressure on Pyongyang.

Trump for his part wrote on his favorite social media platform, Twitter, that the tests of “small weapons” did bother some of his people, but not him.

The tests have been viewed as a way to put pressure on Washington to roll back sanctions imposed on North Korea, while Bolton is a staunch opponent of easing the restrictions.

Calling the hawkish American’s comment “more than ignorant,” the North Korean official added that Bolton was working to “destroy peace and security.”

John Bolton has been lambasted before for his “warmongering” position not only in relation to North Korea, but also for “looking for a fight” with Iran. Former congressman Ron Paul recently told RT that such a position is “very dangerous,” lamenting Trump for appointing neocons to his team.

  1. Bolton is a “war fanatic” and a “defective human product”

    That sums it up rather nicely!

  2. “Defective human product” Hahahahahaha….The Koreans are right. Bolton is a deranged lunatic, and should be kept well away from the levers of Power.
    He’d be better off working as a zoo keeper, looking after Salt Water Crocodiles, and hopefully……………eaten by one of them.

  3. Think “mind-binding” (ref. Chinese “feet binding”) as a tribal survival tactic. With a bit of study, the mindset of the Bolton/Borg hive mind is more clear.

  4. I read somewhere today that the DPRK won’t even enter a room for any form of negotiation if Pompeo is in the room. That dotard should have been included in this indictment of US warmongering-imperialism-sanctions in the age of Adelson-Satanyahu-Trump. Also Pence…Graham…Cotton…and more?
