Taking Shots in the Battle Over Bolton

June 25, 2005

"Time to Bolt" (editorial, June 22) is a concoction of half-truth and obfuscation. The claims of bullying and arm-twisting are laughable coming from supposed adults who practice those behaviors daily. The plain truth is there is a substantial majority that will confirm John Bolton. The United Nations is a corrupt institution that needs the firm hand of the U.S. if it is to play a positive role. Those opposing Bolton believe that the U.S. should not lead the U.N., but rather that we should be led by it. They will not speak the truth because they cannot do so and survive politically, so they resort to lies.

Re "Senate Again Blocks Bolton," June 21: All this talk about Bolton having been nominated as U.N. ambassador because of his unique qualifications to reform the U.N. is making me sick. The only reform the U.N. needs is for the United States to stop disregarding the world body.
