Do you want to stop John Bolton from becoming the US Ambassador to the United Nations? Here's a website suggesting ways to do it (for now, target members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and try to lobby them).
As I mentioned before, I think this nomination is terrible move by the president (hmm, President Bush making poor personnel choices and showing a tin-ear for foreign policy .... who'd have expected that?). Bolton has an appalling record, both in terms of what he believes, and the legion of failed policies he's supposedly overseen at the State Department. Pissing off our allies, while it might feel good, serves no real substantive end, and can often result in the US having to suffer under unecessary costs. And of course some of those can mean terrible results for American families. If he can't even begin to see how the United Nations can serve American interests, or that it has the potential to improve the quality of life of much of humanity (at least according to how that's viewed through American norms), he has no business serving in this position.Posted by armand at March 14, 2005 01:17 PM | TrackBack | Posted to Politics
