Bolton hasn’t yet learned his lesson from Iraq War: US 2020 candidate

The Vermont Democratic senator made the comments in an interview with CNN on Wednesday amid the US escalation of tensions with Tehran. The anti-war lawmaker, who is running to take on President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, called the hawkish politician "one of the architects” of the Iraq War, noting that “we should have learned the lessons of war in Iraq and apparently John Bolton has not.” ‘Don’t listen to the mustache!’ Trump’s military confrontation with Iran could highly reduce his chances of reelection in 2020 as he may lose favorability among his anti-war base. Trump could lose the 2020 bid over listening to Bolton, suggested Hessamoddin Ashena, advisor to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Meanwhile, there were reports that Trump may finally dismiss the war hawk as he is busy escalating tensions not only with Iran but also with North Korea and Venezuela. Can US win war with Iran in ‘two strikes’? On the other hand, Washington continues its empty threats against Iran amid the Trump administration’s psychological war. Senator Tom Cotton, another Republican war hawk, also claimed Wednesday that the US will manage to win a war with Iran in "two strikes." "Yes, two strikes… The first strike and the last strike," claimed the Arkansas lawmaker. "I don’t advocate military action against Iran. I’m simply delivering the message that if Iran were to attack the United States, it would be a grave miscalculation on their part and there would be a furious response." Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) aerospace division General Amir Ali Hajizadeh asserted Sunday that the US forces stationed in the Persian Gulf “will be hit on the head” if they make a mistaken move.
