Neocon Bolton Hails Egyptian Military Coup

There is not a half way decent person vying for power in Egypt, but you know the military coup is a real bad option when neocon John Bolton steps forward to endorse it by using neocon logic.

NR reports:
Speaking by telephone on Fox News’ The Five, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton praised the Egyptian military as “the greatest force for stability in Egypt” and declared that “we needed the military to stop the Muslim Brotherhood, and I think this coup was the right thing.”[...]There’s a fine, fine irony here in ousting Egypt’s first elected president, but it was because he was on the way to, as the saying goes, “One person, one vote, one time,” and that had to be stopped.
He then went on to say, there likely won't be any of the stability he claimed the military takeover brought:
This is a long way from being over; and while, as I just said, I support the military’s action here, I think there’s every prospect that this could get a lot more tumultuous and even bloody before it’s over.
