|No, but he shows that Bolton will be ineffective in the UN. He won't get the US (which is the main contributor) out of the UN. Also, the Republicans (especially the newly Republican-ruled California) are greatly improvising on the Agenda21, a special UN-agenda to gain control. Only some Republicans, like Ron Paul, really fight this intrusion, most just go along, because it is in their political interest. |
The UN is as much a child of the Republicans as it is of the Democrats. The Republicans always say they hate the UN, but there are not much measures to close it down. The US has the power to close down the UN, don't be mistaken, because it funds most of the budget. There haven't been cuts under Republican administrations to the UN-funding and so I gather that they are rather happy with the arrangement.
