What Bolton really thinks of the UN
“Let us be realistic about the U.N.,"[Bolton] asserts."It has served our purposes from time to time; and it is worth keeping alive for future service.But it is not worth the sacrifice of American troops, American freedom of action, or American national interests.”
“It can be a useful tool in the American foreign policy kit.The U.N. should be used when and where we choose to use it to advance American national interests.Not to validate academic theories and abstract models.”
From the New Kerala, in India. Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t find anything not to like in the article.
