His appointment has caused an outcry in the "Blame America First"
crowd because they know his presence in the UN will spell trouble
for those who have backed the UN's track record of corruption and
In 1994 Bolton lashed out at the UN in a speech saying:
"There is no such thing as the United Nations. There
is an international community that occasionally can

dictator" which sent U.N. officials into a fit of protest. They
weren't bothered by the fact that the North Korean government had
called Bolton "human scum."
Bolton knows who America's enemies are and he isn't afraid to stand
up and point them out - just as Ronald Reagan did when facing the
Communist Bloc nations.
