[President Bush today named neoconservative, unilateralist hawk John Bolton as the new U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Just who is John Bolton? ]

“I just wanted to say a quick word on behalf of America’s corporate giants…they have contributed enormously over the years to our defense and to the triumph over communism, and they made a buck off of it as well. I don’t see anything wrong with that. I think it’s another triumph of both the capitalists and democratic sides of our system.” — John Bolton, NPR, 5/21/99
