Iran: Biden an ’embarrassment’ to US for urging Israel not to retaliate – ex-Trump aide

John Bolton, South Korea

U.S. President Donald Trump has asked John Bolton, his national security adviser, to resign, citing strong differences of opinion.

National Security Adviser, under President Donald Trump, John Bolton says the “wide range” of possible deterrents he believes Israel has to attack Iran, and why he says he would call the President an embarrassment to the US.

Recall President Joe Biden warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the U.S. will not take part in a counter-offensive against Iran, an option Netanyahu’s war cabinet favours after a mass drone and missile attack on Israeli territory, according to officials.

The threat of open warfare erupting between the arch Middle East foes and dragging in the United States put the region on edge, triggering calls for restraint from global powers and Arab nations to avoid further escalation.
