Annan throws down the Gauntlet!
“I think it is all right for one ambassador to come and push, but an ambassador always has to remember that there are 190 others who will have to be convinced – or a vast majority of them – for action to take place.” Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the United Nations, on the appointment of John Bolton by President Bush.
I believe the gauntlet has been thrown by this bold statement in the 1990s: John Bolton said, “Several floors of United Nations headquarters could be lopped off without being missed.”
I think Bush hopes to have Bolton bull United Nations into support when he takes Iran to the Security Council to seek punishment if Tehran moves forward with its nuclear program.
Bad enough we have occupation in Afghanistan and Iraq, now it seems he may be wanting to invade Iran as well.
