A Tiny Revolution: As Shocking As This Sounds, I Suspect Condoleezza Rice May Not Be 100% Honest: "A former top American diplomat says the US deliberately resisted calls for a immediate ceasefire during the conflict in Lebanon in the summer of 2006.
Former ambassador to the UN John Bolton told the BBC that before any ceasefire Washington wanted Israel to eliminate Hezbollah's military capability.
Mr Bolton said an early ceasefire would have been 'dangerous and misguided'.
He said the US decided to join efforts to end the conflict only when it was clear Israel's campaign wasn't working...
Mr Bolton, a controversial and blunt-speaking figure, said he was 'damned proud of what we did' to prevent an early ceasefire."
...Someone wake me up when we start shunning psychopaths like Bolton, as opposed to giving them government positions and having news outlets seek their opinions.
Shorter Bolton: Lebanese citizens? Fuck 'em!
