The Wolves Are Guarding The Henhouse
Monday, 2005 March 7 - 9:44 pm
Bush has nominated John R. Bolton to be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

When I first read the headline "Bolton Tapped to Be Next U.N. Ambassador", I thought they were talking about a different no-talent ass-clown.



It seems almost as if Bush delights in choosing candidates most likely to piss off Democrats, candidates who are so utterly wrong that we're left sputtering and speechless. Let's review John Bolton's stellar qualifications:

- In 1994 he was famous for ridiculing the U.N.'s significance by saying, "The [U.N.] Secretariat building in New York has 38 stories. If it lost 10 stories, it wouldn't make a bit of difference."

- He wrote: "[The U.S. is] no longer waiting beneath the empty protection of a reluctant international body while seeking grudging permission to take measures to protect ourselves."

- After the U.S. failed to get the U.N.'s support for the war in Iraq, he said that was "further evidence to many why nothing should be paid to the U.N. system."

- He pissed off North Korea to the point where they refused to negotiate with him. A North Korean spokesman described him as "human scum" and a "bloodsucker". Former U.S. negotiator Jack Pritchard said, "He has undermined Secretary of State Powell's leadership and relationship with the president in the development of an effective policy toward North Korea."

- When asked about Europe's carrot-and-stick approach towards Iran that emphasized diplomacy as well as punishment, he said, "I don't do carrots."

In total, Bolton has shown disdain for the U.N., disdain for diplomacy, and disdain nearly every other country in the world. This is the guy we want to be our AMBASSADOR TO THE WORLD. I guess Cheney must have been involved in this decision., because the message to Democrats and to the U.N. boils down to this: "Go fuck yourselves." Again.
