Professional asshole, and incompetent sheepdog John Bolton was recently asked 10 questions by Time magazine.
U.N. SECRETARY-GENERAL KOFI ANNAN HAS CALLED ON THE WEST TO STEP UP EFFORTS TO STOP THE KILLING IN DARFUR. IS GENOCIDE THE RIGHT TERM FOR WHAT'S HAPPENING?
Boltons answer: Sounds right to me.
Thanks for the deep concern, asshole.
This is so typical, not just of this administration, but of a continuing policy by this government and other western nations to just not care if their interests aren't served by our involvement.
The worst of this is their little language games - the ones in which they engage in amazing feats of verbal gymnastics to avoid having to say "Genocide" because then, they would actually be responsible for doing something about it.
Bolton, being the biggest disgrace in an administration of dishonor, can't even be bothered to pretend he cares. You'ld think they asked him if he wanted soup with his dinner.
SO SHOULDN'T THERE BE A MORE AGGRESSIVE RESPONSE?
Bolton: It's easy to be casual about putting military people into play when their lives can be lost. You could end up with a lot of dead military people and not save a single civilian. I don't think that's a sign of success.
You would think we could look back to long ago eras like the Clinton administration and remember the price of looking away.
Of course, in Rwanda, men like Romeo Dallaire, Philipe Gaillard, Gromo Alex, Mbaye Diagne and Carl Wilkens saved the lives of thousands of people without a single weapon.
But really, how much can one wittle Bolton do?
Maybe we're better off without him caring:
There was even a point … when African countries offered [more] soldiers, and all they needed was a few trucks and some airlift to get them in. The Americans even refused to do that. … The British government and the American government -- who send their politicians to Kigali and cry over the gravesites -- these are the same countries that refused to send soldiers to stop it happening, when they knew it was happening, not just because I was telling them that it was happening. … They deliberately tried to stop countries [from] sending troops to the U.N.
