BUSHīS OBSESSION: BOLTON AT THE U.N.

The fact that Bush is determined to force square-peg John Bolton into the round United Nations hole is further confirmation that the neo-cons are still in charge of U.S. foreign/military policy. Bush is having to use a recess appointment since the Senate will not approve this perjurer and habitual bully to be Americaīs ambassador to the U.N.

Bush/Cheney want Bolton there and there he will go. Why is it so important that Bolton be at the U.N? The neo-con strategic philosophy requires a weakening of all international institutions that potentially could get in the way of Americaīs hegemonic adventures in various hotspots around the globe. (See "How We Got Into This Imperial Pickle: A PNAC Primer.")

Recall that Cheney/Rumsfeld didnīt want the U.S. to go to the United Nations prior to "Shock & Awe"; they agreed reluctantly (at the behest of Tony Blair and Colin Powell) in order to get a fig-leaf approval from the Security Council to cover their embarrassingly illegal military invasion of Iraq. Bush & Co. donīt want to risk a similar diplomatic morass as they move toward potential military action against Iran and Syria.

Mad Dog Bolton will be the guy who is expected to coerce and threaten U.N. diplomats to approve those military campaigns, and to head up the "reform" (read: terminal weakening) of that international body. Ergo, Bolton will go to the United Nations, Senate be damned.

Bush should be made to pay a heavy political price for this slap in the face to the Senate, but what can be done at this stage is not clear. Itīs possible that Patrick Fitzgerald will include Bolton in his upcoming CIA-leak indictments.
