How can mobsters rehabilitate thugs? Why would they want to? If we can give airline pilots the right to carry concealed weapons, surely we can give Bolton an arsenal of whatever it takes. And if reform is not possible, Bolton ought to say so. If it is meant to be an enormous NGO so be it, but let's stop kidding ourselves. There are immediate problems that must be solved.
U.S. Drive to Remake UN Stalled; Penalties Threatened (Update1)
Bloomberg.com- A U.S. campaign to remake the United Nations through an infusion of democratic values and corporate efficiency has stalled, raising the prospect that Washington lawmakers will exact a financial penalty on the world body to back up their demands for change.
"The current situation is untenable and must not be allowed to continue," Bolton said, according to a copy of his written text. "Membership on the Commission by some of the world's most notorious human rights abusers mocks the legitimacy of the Commission and the United Nations itself."
Bolton, speaking at a closed meeting, presented several proposals on how to create the new council that would replace the discredited Geneva-based Human Rights Commission, known for giving seats to such countries as Sudan and Zimbabwe who then make deals to block resolutions against various offenders.
