John Bolton File

Many Conservatives look at the United Nations through 25 year old glasses, when it was run by 3rd world nations supported by Soviets, when we longed for someone to “stand up for America.” That’s all gone.

The world has changed. Today the UN does basically what America wants (even with the cowboy-neocon bulls of George Bush) and it provides an important forum for legitimization and co-operation.

John Bolton is a long time leader of the War Party, was a major promoter of the lies about Iraq which fostered our war, was former Vice President of the neocon nesting American Enterprise Institute and advisor to JINSA (Likud Think Tank in Washington which long urged Israel to violate Oslo accords).   Bolton never gained congressional approval, the is legitimacy for his “Ambassadorship” to the UN and is despised by most of the outside world’s nations.

America is not safer being hated and represented to the world by one of the main architects of the policies which led to such hatred.  Every time he speaks he is a symbol of go-it-alone America and a lightening rod for hate against America.

“It is a big mistake for us to grant any validity to international law even when it may seem in our short-term interest to do so — because, over the long term, the goal of those who think that international law really means anything are those who want to constrict the United States…..” Jim Lucier quoting John Bolton
