Bush Picks Right Man to be US Ambassador to the UN 09 March 2005
George W. Bush has picked John R. Bolton to be the next United States Ambassador to the UN. President Bush has definitely made the right choice and I endorse his selection 144 per gross. How can I support Bolton with such confidence? Easy -- he has an impressive reference list. In my opinion, he is hated by all the right people. Socialist French policy experts, Syrian policy experts, the North Korean government, socialist German policy experts, socialist Norwegian policy experts, the Iranian government, the world socialist movement, and UN advocates in general all hate Bolton. The North Koreans fondly refer to him as "human scum" (and let me tell you, coming from the savages that run that country, that is all the endorsement I need). That tells me everything I need to know about him. But, if you need some more detailed information, I'm sure I can oblige you.
Bolton supports the notion of a free and independent republic of Taiwan. This is an unusual quality at the UN where most of the hypocrites who make up the members/representatives blatantly ignore the fact that the People's Republic of China has repeatedly threatened to conquer the sovereign liberal republic. He is opposed to the International Criminal Court -- which is good because provisions in that treaty clearly violate the Constitution of these United States, a fact which is never discussed. "[A]s the U.S. State Department's top official on disarmament affairs. . . he has pressed for the isolation of Iran and North Korea and possible punitive measures for their suspected development of nuclear arms." And that's a good thing. We don't need people who have no understanding of what human rights are developing weapons of mass destruction. When I look for people I want in positions of leadership, I look for people who will uphold the Constitution of these United States. I believe Bolton is such a man -- in 1999, he is quoted as saying, "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."
Robert McGeehan, an analyst at the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London, states that "Bolton takes a very dim view of the U.N. . . He, with a lot of others, feels that the degree of corruption is out of control, and that (Secretary-General) Kofi Annan is doing very little about it." A person who takes a dim view of the U.N. is one who is paying attention to how that cesspool of an organization behaves. We give them U.S. tax dollars to spend, and all they can do is complain that this gift is not enough. We provide all sorts of logistical support for various U.N. operations, and they complain that we aren't paying our dues. We give aid to the ungrateful Islamic countries hit by the tsunami in December and the UN calls us stingy. It's time we put the U.N. in its place. The United States is a nation of laws. It is not the personal moneybox of the little tin dictators that make up the U.N. and it's time we taught them that.
Notice, too, how all the Democrats are complaining that Bush is appointing a U.N. critic to be the ambassador. Are these the same people who complained when Bush chose cabinet members who wouldn't criticize his administration? If the Democrats expect to be taken seriously, someone needs to teach them about the 'sauce for the goose' rule.
By the way, one of the links below is to the World Socialist Web Site or some such thing. Okay, it isn't so much as a link as it is a text URL you can cut ant paste yourself if you so choose. Realm of Sovereigns has an official policy of never linking to the web sites of people who willfully advocate tyranny and other forms of theft. These little tin commissars over at WSWS refer to the government of the sovereign republic of Taiwan as the 'Taiwanese regime' and consider Bolton to be evil because he supports Taiwan. They apparently think the enslavement of the citizens of Taiwan by the imperialists in Beijing to be a good thing.
