Bolton Nominated to Destroy UN

by Marjorie Cohn - t r u t h o u t | Perspective - Apr. 4 2005


"As UN ambassador, Bolton would make the world a more dangerous place.  Bolton spearheaded a successful campaign to prevent the Senate from ratifying the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, clearing the way for increased testing of nuclear weapons.  He led both the US withdrawal from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, and the US renunciation of the International Criminal Court.  Bolton hailed his announcement that Bush was taking the United States' signature off the ICC treaty as "the happiest moment" of his government service."

"Additional evidence of Bolton's extreme, take-no-prisoners worldview is not difficult to find.  He is a prolific writer and speaker.

In an article for the right-wing Weekly Standard (10/4/99) entitled 'Kofi Annan's UN Power Grab,' Bolton excoriates the UN Secretary General for trying to limit warfare and to establish the supremacy of UN forces.  In Bolton's words, 'If the United States allows that claim to go unchallenged, its discretion in using force to advance its national interests is likely to be inhibited in the future.'"

Hi, Hippie,

All these appointments by asshole are simpy his way of giving us all the finger. We need a good and subtle and permanent way of giving him the finger right back. Got any ideas?
