Bolton has no credibility issues from playing in the desert, I believe him.

Rogue state, flaunting international law and rules.

Thats, in a nutshell, sums up the root cause of so much of what is wrong with the world today.

America's insistence that a fact based neutral ruling is 'biased and politicized', and anything without the power to inflict widespread pain and suffering, or the extinction of humanity, is 'ineffective', and that while they can break (or unilaterally rewrite) any law, everyone else must obey them.

So safe to assume some entities can just claim they're above international laws?

John Bolton - team mate of Rumsfeld and Cheney - never met a war in the Middle East he didn't like - and is now working towards starting a new one with Iran.  The definitive far-right wing nut...

Trump and his cabal have to be voted out - just as the Republican "Anonymous" said, they're a danger to the country...and the world.

The warmonger could do with a stint in front of the ICJ.

The Great Satan has shown it is a danger to global stability and shadowy PNAC relics like Bolton only accelerate the risk of conflict.

Once again, why doesn't the US just quit the UN, get all its stuff home, and stay there to do what it wants alone ?

At any sport event, if any team came saying "Screw you, we will play by our own rules", they would be sent packing. Other countries should not let this pass and should call out their BS.

US has become the laughing stock of the world, literally. The leader of the US is under the thumb of Russia, and he wants to turn the country into NK, Russia, and China 2.0.

Putin will truly defeat the US if the upcoming midterms go the wrong way.

Don’t forget that the dems are also closely connected to Israel.

@bintaro. You da man

No way in hell the UN will do anything to the US. The Americans pay something like 20-25% of the total budget for Sodom on the Hudson to operate- $10 billion per year. That money could be spent elsewhere. Plus, imagine the profits from selling the UN building in New York! That's some prime real estate there, folks.

I see no reason for a free and democratic country to join an organization in which the majority of members are freedom hating dictatorships and thugs.

The US of A has been supporting most of the 'freedom hating dictatorships and thugs' you're referring at...

So as they keep most of problems alive by doing so it's obvious that you're paying your share. The EU pays 30 % and Japan 10% thus the 22% of the Americans is just in line with those contributions.

Bolton was part of the Georg W Bush team and in those days they made the 'The Hague Invasion Act' legal on the other UN court in The Hague, the ICC.

John Bolton is a disgrace ... one of the conmen who, under Israeli guidance, advised George W. (Weapons of Mass Deception) Bush to fight Israel’s proxy war on Iraq.

As a member of the current administration in Washington, D.C., he continues to get his instructions from occupied Jerusalem, and will do anything at the detriment and expense of the United States of America and the world at large.

Donald J. Trump’s administration is a major threat to world order as we know it.

"Donald J. Trump’s administration is a major threat to world order as we know it."

I dunno, his foreign policy has so far been way better than the last two administrations'.

And as if the world order as we know it has done such a bang up job, lol.
