John Bolton vs The UN

Short of leaving the UN, the appointment of ambasador Bolton was probably the closest Americans could come to a victory over that ineffective and evil orgnization.

The US government has been manufacturing reasons for war since the sinking of the USS Maine -nearly a half century before the founding of the UN. While the US government is precived as a bully, it is due to a long history of unwise actions. The UN approval or disapproval of those actions is irrelavant.

The body of the UN consists in large part of countries led by brutal dictators, corrupt cabals, theocratic extremists, warlords, and other ne'er-do-wells. The UN has a history of arbitrary and ineffective foreign intervention and shares the US's perception of being a bully. Further the UN promotes statist civil and economic policies which destroy the liberty and economic prosperity necessary for peace under a legitimate government.

Mr. Bolton then, as an ambasodor who hates the UN, is in a position to fight the UN establishment's policies with the same rigor with which he fought the state department beaurocracy. In so doing, he may make room for more considered action by other entities in the global sphere and increase the credibility of all just peoples.

Calling the UN evil is just ridiculous. What is it? Little demons walking the earth?

Maybe you want to brush up on a little history. The UN doesn't do anything the US doesn't want. The US has veto authority over resolutions.


The US founded the UN. It has served our interests for decades.

To call the UN evil is to call the US evil, and even with all the horrible deeds this country has done, I wouldn't call it evil.

Bolton's appointment is just cutting off the nose to spite the face. It shows what a fool Bush is. He'd rather strut around like the tough guy he isn't than actually do a man's work.

And we all get to pay the price.

Bad Guys Get Promoted

Like its historical predecessor the Soviet Communist Party, the Bush administration just keeps firing and smearing everyone who tells the truth (and is proved right) and promoting everyone who lies and breaks the law on behalf of the party. So it was John Bolton's turn to get promoted. That's the way things work in Bush's America.
