Then again, so is pretending that any US politicians has "basically" chanted "Death to Iran". Just another bald-faced lie.
Video is from 2007. You couldn't even find anything from the last decade!

Even worse, the video shows John McCain, a warmongering lunatic and liar who, last I checked, despised and attacked President Trump as much as any Democrat has. Moreover, he has been openly supporting the Democrats on the Iran Deal.

So...what were you trying to prove here, exactly? That the one lunatic suggesting the US bomb Iran (still very different than your dishonest claim of "Death to Iran") is ON YOUR SIDE of this issue?

Okay, good job.
I have some more goalposts I need moved.

Bombs away: John Bolton's most hawkish views on Iran, Iraq and North Korea
A hawk among hawks, Bolton has advocated for pre-emptive strikes against North Korea and Iran, and pushed anti-immigration rhetoric

Fifteen years ago to the week, the US began its invasion and occupation of Iraq. Among the war’s many architects and cheerleaders was John Bolton, at the time a senior adviser to George W Bush on issues of arms control and international security. And while many early invasion supporters have, in the clear view of hindsight, conceded that the decade-plus long odyssey was at least misguided, Bolton has reached no such conclusion.

Even in the war-happy neoconservative Bush administration, Bolton stood out - a hawk among hawks - and his post-Bush career as a public commentator certainly didn’t see those leanings tempered. He has advocated, to various degrees, pre-emptive strikes and wars against North Korea and Iran, and overall an aggressive military interventionist programme around the world, coupled with staunch anti-immigration rhetoric.

Sure, if you ignore what he actually said. Or if you think 2018-2015 = 3 > 10. Math is hard! Lying is easy!

Citation needed. Vague hit pieces without any concrete facts or sources can be safely laughed off as the partisan hackery they are.

Don't feed the trolls. Like any other RWNJ, IN obviously knows what Bolton's frequently publicly announced positions are.

North Korea is Iran, now? Can it be any more obvious that you are dishonest and not discussing this in remotely good faith? Hell, I specifically bolded Iran in the quote above when asking for a citation. That either escaped your notice, or it didn't impede you in the least.

You're projecting, Mr. Gold. Your drive-by, irrelevant article about Bolton, which has nothing to do with Iran's nuclear program or the IAEA's inability to investigate anything, was pure trolling, as is your juvenile signature. You're a 62 year-old behaving like a 6 year-old.

Lastly, I have no clue what a "RWNJ" is.

Ever listen to a song and absolutely hate it... and then re-listen to it a few days later and absolutely love it?

The SSA's list of the most common first names for babies born in the United States in 2017 just came out last Friday!

The below infographic is presented without comment except to say that it is my own original work but the concept was stolen from a similar infographic in this highly entertaining article.

I'm 31 and I don't know what half of these names are even supposed to mean. What the hell is Ximena?

I look forward to the 2028 edition, which will no doubt include Bazinga, Toriel, Despacito, Szechuan, Retsuko, Cuphead, something with a hashtag in it, and Yanny. I mean Laurel. I mean Yanny. No wait, Laurel. No, I'm pretty sure it's Yanny.

Aren't all names made up, though?

Probably shouldn't pick your kids' names while playing Scrabble tho.
