"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

"John Bolton has had a year on the job as UN ambassador to prove his worth, his ability to get things done and to prove wrong those who questioned his suitability for the job. Bolton's recess appointment will expire in January, if he is not confirmed by the Senate. And the fact is he has been the right man for the job for the past year and remains exactly the guy this nation needs at the Security Council table going forward. Is he Secretary-General Kofi Annan's favorite fellow? Not likely. But that's a good thing. Bolton has made it abundantly clear that in the wake of the oil-for-food scandal the United Nations had a lot of reforming to do within, and that job is far from over. Meanwhile he has also provided able leadership resulting—at last—in a Security Council resolution on North Korea's nuclear ambitions. He has also been tireless in pursuing UN consensus on Iran's nuclear threat. Only those blinded by political partisanship would fail to see that Bolton's leadership at the UN is even more critical in the difficult days ahead."
