How could John Bolton possibly be America's Ambassador to the UN
So how could such a man possibly be America’s Ambassador to the UN?
It is crucial during the Confirmation Hearing that Senators ask Bolton what his involvement was in creating this document, and where he stands on its philosophy today?
(The document is clearly visible on the Internet: Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources for a new Century put out by New American Century.)
In September of 2000 a document was written as a report of the Project of the New American Century, an extremist Right-Wing think tank, calling for the minimizing of the United Nations and destroying any influence the United Nations may have in world affairs.
A Director of the Project urging the virtual elimination of the United Nations was John R. Bolton, now Ambassador to the UN. It is inconceivable that a man who believes strongly in the destruction of the UN and its importance is made Ambassador to the UN.
Of special interest in this bizarre concept of benevolent domination of the world by one power, the US, the document articulates the clearest rejection of collective internationalism, i.e., the United Nations and other coalitions.
In the event that having the appearance of a coalition has a political or public relations value, the coalitions formed for these purposes should be, at best, “ad hoc assemblies, often not lasting beyond the crisis being confronted…”.
In other words, when forced to find the United Nations useful, pretend to support them, but only temporarily and then return to discrediting the United Nations and minimizing its influence in the world.
In 2000, the old Dick Cheney strategy document for US world domination written in 1992 now became the blueprint for the creation of a “global Pax Americana” drawn up for Dick Cheney (now Vice President), Donald Rumsfeld (Defense Secretary), Paul Wolfowitz (Rumsfeld’s Deputy), George W. Bush’s younger brother, Jeb, Lewis Libby (Cheney’s Chief of Staff), and John Bolton (Ambassador to the United Nations). The document, entitled Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategies, Forces and Resources for a New Century, was written in September 2000 – before the elections.
True to its original strategy of 1992, the document calls for “a blueprint for maintaining global US preeminence, precluding the rise of a great power rival, and shaping the international security order in line with American principles and interests.” Like the original, it too advocates “discouraging advanced industrial nations from challenging our leadership or even aspiring to a larger regional or global role,” and the complete discrediting of the United Nations in order to eliminate them as having any kind of world influence.
Interestingly enough, the document refers to certain allies, especially Britain (Tony Blair), that can be used as “fronts” to provide “the most effective and efficient means of exercising American global leadership.”
The blueprint emerged again on September 15, 2002, when the Sunday Herald revealed the discovery of the secret document clearly stating that President Bush and his Cabinet, were already planning a premeditated attack on Iraq to secure “regime change” even before he took power in January 2001. The subsequent invasion of Iraq, as predicted by the Sunday Herald, from the September 15, 2002 document, verifies the authenticity of the document.
The 1992 document created not only a national, but an international, uproar, and was so outrageous that Bush Sr. knew he had no chance to be elected if he publicly stood behind it, and so he disavowed it and had it buried, but it didn’t go away. Throughout the 90’s, the hardcore of extreme conservatives – including John Bolton - continued to fight for the document to become a matter of national policy, including the undermining and sabotaging of the United Nations, revising the draft and on January 26, 1998, issuing a letter to President Clinton urging Clinton to adopt its principles immediately, which Clinton rejected.
Today, nine out of the sixteen creators of that document are in positions of enormous power in the White House, including Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Lewis Libby (Cheney’s Chief of Staff) –and John Bolton, Ambassador to the United Nations - et al where they are successfully implementing that policy, starting with the “first step …”, the invasion of Iraq to control its oil and the Middle East, only this time they have leading this campaign for world domination the President himself, George W. Bush.
