Bolton the Bully Packs His Bag

You see, balance of power in Washington really does make a difference.  The Democrats haven't even taken control of Congress yet, but were still able to force the resignation of John Bolton, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.  In less than 18 months on the job, Bolton had already developed problems with many European ambassadors and others.

 

 John Bolton was exactly the wrong man at the wrong place at the wrong time.  The last thing the United States needs right now is for someone to come in and bully other nations around.  The U.S. is in a precarious position because of Iraq and they need their allies now more than ever.  The world hates the United States and the appointment of Bolton made a bad situation worse.

 

Consider that Bolton was of the opinion that we should not even talk to Iran or Syria.  How are you supposed to resolve conflicts with your supposed enemy if you won't even talk to them?  Talking to them does not mean concessions, it simply means a conversation.

 

The fact is that Bush and his neocons have contempt for the United Nations and were intent on having a bully as the ambassador.  The administration loves the U.N. when it agrees with them, but despises the U.N. when they go against the powerful United States.

 

At some point, the U.S. government must realize that the world is not flat.  Other countries may actually have different opinions than America.  We have to work with them, not browbeat them into our position.
