Reactions from the national security community:
Yesterday: "I hope we won't go to war with North Korea"
Today: "I hope they wait for the war against North Korea and China to finish before we invade Iran" https://t.co/oFr74eMBuV

Burn it down. Burn it all down. We no longer have a rational-based national security enterprise. https://t.co/f9BosLuBHz

Bolton is NSA. Yikes. All the more reason to cancel the Trump-Kim summit. If it goes badly – which is a distinct possibility with only 9 weeks prep and Bolton now in W House – Bolton will press for airstikes on NK, as he has in the past. This is bad

When Bolton was Undersecretary of State for Arms Control/Intl Security at @StateDept during Bush 43,he drove a number of outstanding career nonProliferation experts out of their jobs.He will be a good fit w his vindictive new boss but Who will protect all of us?

John Bolton strongly supported every war the US has fought, believes there should be no limits how US fights it's wars, and strongly supports starting new regime change wars with Iran and nuclear-armed N. Korea.
