At a lecture in Herzliya, Israel, Jan. 22, the former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton said: “One can say with some assurance that in the next year the use of force by the United States is highly unlikely” – especially since a US intelligence report claimed Iran had suspended a nuclear program in 2003.
Bolton went on to estimate that further UN sanctions against the IslamicIslamic RepublicRepublic would be ineffective in stopping Iran’s military program. “Another resolution will be even more toothless than the previous two sanction resolutions,” he said.
“This increases the pressure on Israel in that period of time… If it feels Iran is on the verge of acquiring that capability, it brings the decision point home to use force,” said the US speaker.
He resigned in December 2006, when his recess appointment would have ended.
He is a second cousin to acclaimed American singer-songwriter Michael Bolton.
