John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, warned that the current violence sweeping through Yemen — that resulted in the Shiite rebel takeover of the government — as well as the death of Saudi King Abdullah is leading the Mideast into certain chaos.

“When the United States walks away from the Middle East, it’s a further invitation to chaos, and that’s exactly what we’re getting,” Mr. Bolton said during an interview on “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” on Fox News Channel.

It’s a “descent into chaos,” he said.

And adding to the chaos is the news that Iran has built a missile that can reach “beyond Europe,” Mr. Bolton said, Newsmax reported.

“This is an absolute disaster,” he said. “It’s a policy of appeasement that President Obama has pursued vis-a-vis the Iranians and the nuclear weapons program. And you will see the fruit of appeasement in short order if we sign this deal.”
