Zero Hedge: "Trump Fires John Bolton After "Disagreeing Strongly With His Suggestions""
By Tyler Durden
"While there was some feverish speculation as to what an impromptu presser at 1:30pm with US Secretary of State Pompeo, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and National Security Adviser Bolton would deliver, that was quickly swept aside moments later when Trump unexpectedly announced that he had fired Bolton as National Security Advisor, tweeting that he informed John Bolton "last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House" after "disagreeing strongly with many of his suggestions."
According to sources, while Trump had been growing displeased with Bolton's belligerent recommendations and overall demeanor (recall "Bolton 'Deep in His Heart' Believes Trump Is a 'Moron,' Former Aide..."), the tipping point happened when Bolton expressed his displeasure with Trump's impromptu invitation of the Taliban to Camp David on the week of the Sept 11 anniversary, a peace overture which as we reported over the weekend, collapsed in the last moment.

No surprise here Bolton's days were numbered and timing is everything.
Trump sacrifices another Neo-Con advisor.

Great point, watching closely for Trump's choice on who will replace Bolton.
the replacement I wouldn't mind https://archive.org/details/ronPaulRevolutionMtvsAimeeAllenUncensor...
Ron Paul would put an end to endless proxy wars for sure.
Only took him from May of last year to figure this out. Not a hopeful sign.
For sure James, his next choice should be very telling apparently we get to find out next week barring a leak from either side later this week.
Told him to nuke Iran?
Yep, probably one too many times.
For sure Mrs.Tif good riddance to Bolton and next week we find out which way Trump will position himself in time for his re-election.
