You Better Listen To John Bolton!

You Better Listen To John Bolton!

Once upon a time, I was the brunt of bullying and other forms of harassment on my grade school’s playground.

My father purchased two pair of boxing gloves and taught me the skills of self-defense. My Uncle Dean  (Commander, USN) came to visit and taught me some Jujitsu throws and moves.

When I walked onto the playground, shortly thereafter, I called out the lead bully. I did not seriously injure him, but I defeated and publicly humiliated him in what was a short tussle.

That was the end of my problems with bullies.

The principles are the same on the geopolitical “playground”.

Former U.S. Representative to the United Nations, John Bolton, explains this important fact very clearly in the following video.
