    Bolton still trying to make America hated

    From American Progress:

    "Muscular diplomacy is one thing. But John Bolton has been all muscle and no diplomacy" during his tenure as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, concluded the New York Times's editorial staff. He is threatening to block the entire two-year operating budget of the U.N. "unless his demands for major reforms are met almost immediately." Bolton "has called for the United Nations to approve a budget for three or four months rather than the usual two-year budget," a move opposed by the vast majority of the U.N. members, including Britain and Japan. A stop-gap budget would leave the United Nations "with a deficit of $320 million in the first quarter of 2006" and would likely cut "recruitment, travel, equipment purchases and salary payments," according to Warren Sach, assistant secretary general and controller.
