Bolton Unhinged
Posted by Adam Blickstein

Discredited neoconservative and failed former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton provides a pretty over the top and unhinged assessment of President Obama's UNGA speech filled with neocon code words such as 'naive', calling it ‘A Post-American Speech By Our First Post-American President.’

Of course, there is nothing more post-American than pursuing a foreign policy and national security course that alienates our allies, sends America to war under false pretenses, defies American law and embraces torture, and a generally adopts a go-it-alone mentality that flies in the face of over 200 years of Presidential leadership. Maybe Bolton can't see President Obama's restoration of American ideals and leadership because the President under which he served exhibited neither trait. But ostensibly, Bolton's myopic approach to foreign policy stands at the fringe of the fringe where he has no credibility left from which to criticize any serious foreign policy experts, let alone the President. 

He criticizes Obama's speech for being "filled with talk about U.N. bodies, U.N. treaties, and sending Secretary of State Clinton to a conference on the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, which would be an incredible waste of time for her. The president’s speech showed a fascination with U.N.-centric issues." I'm glad Bolton is so overly concerned about the Secretary of State's time management skills, but he should be more worried about the time he has wasted writing this dribble. Last time I checked a speech at the UN should discuss UN-centric issues.

But the kicker at the end is Bolton infusing the politics of race into Obama's UN speech by asserting that "The president did everything he could to say: ‘Can’t we all just get along?’”

Yes, invoking Rodney King is a fairly intellectual way to examine the merits of the President's General Assembly address. But asking that question is far less pernicious than saying "Every nation in every region now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists."

The problem is this Bolton council has bought the moral genocidal equivalency argument which refuses to acknowledge the true origins,uniqueness and systemic economic and human consequences inherent to the holocaust.....

but is there a replacement of Bolton ? what do you say ?

Your article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular issue goes. Nonetheless at this time there is actually one issue I am not too cozy with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core idea of the position, let me observe what the rest of your subscribers have to say.Well done.
