John R. Bolton — A Good Selection for Ambassador to the UN
At a time when the UN was never in more need of a good dose of reality comes the nomination of John R. Bolton, Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security to succeed John Danforth as Ambassador to the UN. Having a long record of effectively advocating America's interests John Bolton is an experienced diplomat that is tough on dictators and high on human rights and democracy. He has steadfastly expressed continuing skepticism about the UN and its multi-lateralism. To lead an overdue shake-up of the UN, Mr. Bolton is the right selection as ambassador-designate to the UN. His former experience will serve him well to help deal with the challenges of how the UN is going to reform itself and if at all possible be relevant in the twenty-first century.
