John Bolton continues tough stance on UN

Ok liberals, lets have a show of hands. How many of you want the UN to exercise authority over the governments of all the world's countries? How many of you think it is a great idea to have a global income tax to help impoverished countries? How many think the internet should be in the sole control of the UN? How many of you have been talking about a GOP "culture of corruption"?

Now that you know how massively corrupt the UN has been and continues to be, how many of you are now scared to death of enacting these things listed above? Judging from the silence of the left, I can only conclude that they still want to move ahead with further empowerment of the UN. While this does not make sense to me at all, I think it goes along with a statement I recently posted in a comment at the Political Yen Yang:
"As with all leftists they do not want a world that is prosperous, healthy and happy unless those conditions are the result of their policies enacted. The problem is that wherever their liberal policies are enacted we only see poverty, disease and misery in the worse case; with sluggish mediocre economies at best."
Most supporters of the UN lean left, so to deprive the UN of the opportunity to solve the world's problems is loathsome to them. To follow the capitalist example of the United States to expand wealth in the world is so disgusting to them they would rather the world's problems expand.

The UN, however, is so corrupt it holds no hope of solving any world problems. The left resisted the nomination of John Bolton so much, but his performance since being appointed by a recess appointment shows he is the perfect selection. According to Newsmax Bolton recently spoke at a Columbia Law School symposium. Bolton focused again on the management and corruption problems at the UN.
"We find an organization that is deeply troubled by bad management, by sex and corruption and by a growing lack of confidence in its ability to carry out missions that are given to them"

Bolton also criticized the member contribution budget "noting that two-thirds of members pay only 20 percent of the cost." Bolton also points out the UN failure regarding Iran. The Newsmax story states:

Bolton on Saturday also described the U.N. as inept for not being able to stop Iran's nuclear development and "devaluing the IAEA," the International Atomic Energy Agency.

"Through all of this, the U.S. has been encouraged by Europe to pursue action through the U.N.," Bolton said, adding that patience of the administration was wearing thin.

The left within the US and without seem to think everything should be handled through the UN. However, they also somehow think it falls most squarely on the shoulders of the US to deal with the Iranian nuclear crisis. They want the US to go through the UN, but if it fails they want to blame the US. The UN response to Saddam Hussein must have certainly inspired fear in the Iranian leader. Not. If anything they sent a clear signal that aggression will be met with looking the other way. Then if any takes up the cause, they will be accused of unilateralism.

Bolton is doing a great job. I am still waiting with bated breath to see the liberals admit that and apologize for blocking him under such ridiculous pretenses. I think agreeing with Chuck Schumer took up the quota for cold days in hell for awhile, though.
