John Bolton Says Bye-Bye

US Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton Calls it quits. BBC

This is unfortunate. I thought the Left just got done telling us in the recent election that it's good for "political balance" to have those that don't follow the rest of the herd. I guess that only applies when the person in power is One Of Them.

That crazy Right Wing paper, New York Times, tells us he had many supporters in other nation's leaders:

    "“I think he was serious about the American objective here of reforming the United Nations, and he pushed hard," said Wang Guangya, the Chinese ambassador. "But of course, sometimes in order to achieve the objective, you have to work together with others."

    Adamantios Vassilakis, the Greek ambassador, said: "I had a good personal relationship with him. Sometimes it was not easy, but we managed to find a solution whenever I dealt with him."

    In Moscow, the Novosti news agency quoted a Russian foreign ministry spokesman saying that Mr. Bolton had been "A very strong professional, although on a series of issues, including problems of U.N. reform, he supported extremely severe views."

Uh...the UN is in dire need of severe overhaul or, more preferably, it becoming an extinct organization.
