John Bolton has reaffirmed America’s commitment to destroy Socialism and tyranny. In his speech, he targets the three tyrannical countries of the Western Hemisphere, Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua. Fox News reports:
National Security Adviser John Bolton on Thursday branded Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua a “troika of tyranny” and announced new measures against the socialist countries — promising they “will feel the full weight of America’s robust sanctions regime.”
Bolton told the audience at Miami Dade College that under President Trump, “we will no longer appease dictators and despots near our shores in this Hemisphere.”
“The troika of tyranny, this triangle of terror stretching from Havana to Caracas to Managua, is the cause of immense human suffering, the impetus of enormous regional instability, and the genesis of a sordid cradle of communism in the Western Hemisphere,” he said.
The turn of phrase was reminiscent of the term “axis of evil,” used by President George W. Bush to describe North Korea, Iran and Iraq. Bolton served under Bush as U.N. ambassador.
This is an important step for American foreign policy. Instead of focusing on nation building across the globe, America will now spend more effort in curbing the power of these three enemies of freedom and America.
