Well, if nothing else, be thankful that Bonkers
Bolton doesn’t stand any chance of remaining our ambassador to the United
Nations, come January 2007.
It’s also beginning to look like President Hu Jintao has outsmarted Bonkers
Bolton (and his nominal boss, Condi Rice, and his real boss, Dick Cheney) at
Oh, it’s true those Dirty Commies appear to have sat back while Bush-Cheney-Rice-Bolton
undermined the authority of the Security Council of the United Nations, the
Board of Governors [.pdf] of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Treaty
on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons [.pdf], the IAEA
Statute and even the UN Charter,
In particular, China did not prevent Bolton from strong-arming the IAEA
Board into "reporting" the Iranian IAEA "dossier" to
the Security Council.
Nor did China veto the Bolton strong-armed Security Council Presidential
Statement of 29 March, 2006, which "called" upon Iran "to
take the steps required by the IAEA Board of Governors."
Nor did China veto the subsequent Bolton strong-armed UNSC
Resolution 1696, which "demanded" that Iran suspend all uranium
enrichment activities by August 31, 2006, or "face possible economic, diplomatic
(Note that in issuing Bolton’s UNSCR 1696 – demanding that Iran suspend IAEA
safeguarded activities to which Iran has an "inalienable right" under
the NPT – the Security Council has not only contravened the NPT and IAEA Statute,
but violated the spirit and the letter of the UN Charter, itself.)
Nor did China veto the Bolton strong-armed UNSC
Resolution 1718, which, inter allia -
"Demands that the DPRK immediately retract its announcement of withdrawal
from the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons;
Demands further that the DPRK return to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation
of Nuclear Weapons and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards,"
(Note that in issuing Bolton’s UNSCR 1718 – demanding that North Korea
become a no-nuke NPT signatory – the Security Council is once again exceeding
its authority, violating the letter and spirit of the UN Charter.)
Nor has China vetoed the Bush-Cheney-Rice-Bolton request that the Nuclear Suppliers
Group grant waivers of NSG guidelines to India, thereby enabling the US-India
nuclear deal – which does not require India to become a no-nuke
NPT signatory – thereby further undermining the entire IAEA-NPT-NSG nuke proliferation-prevention
So, why have those Dirty Commies allowed Bonkers Bolton to run amok, undermining
the authority of the Security Council, the IAEA Board of Governors, the NPT,
the IAEA Statute and even the UN Charter, itself?
Perhaps because the Chinese have decided it is in their self-interest to sit
back and watch the American imperialists destroy themselves and their creatures
– the UN (Truman), IAEA (Eisenhower), NPT (LBJ) and NSG (Ford).
Have you ever wondered how President Truman got the Security Council to pass
calling upon all Member States to render South Korea "every assistance"
in effecting the "withdrawal of North Korean forces to the 38th
After all, at that time China was a permanent member of the Security Council,
with veto authority. And when Truman didn’t end the war once the North Koreans
had been forced to withdraw back across the 38th parallel, but kept
going, right up to the Chinese border, "hordes" of Chinese Commie
"volunteers" came pouring across the Yalu river, forcing the American
imperialists to withdraw back across the 38th parallel.
If the Chinese Commies felt that strongly about what turned into a misuse by
Truman of UNSCR 82, why didn’t they just veto it in the first place?
Well, because back in 1950 the UN did our bidding and we didn’t "recognize"
– and didn’t allow the UN to recognize – the People’s Republic of China, established
by those dirty Commies.
So, who sat in the "China" seat on the UN Security Council in 1950?
Some stooge of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek, who had (with American assistance)
fled to – and established a "government-in-exile" on – some island
off the coast of China called Formosa.
Now it is 2006, the Dirty Commies have hundreds of nukes and the ballistic
missiles to deliver them, are members of the UN, IAEA, NPT, NSG and have the
"China" seat – with veto authority – on the Security Council.
The Dirty Commies in North Korea now have – thanks to Bush-Cheney-Rice-Bolton
– perhaps a half dozen nukes and are suppliers of ballistic missiles capable
of delivering warheads from Iran to Israel.
And it is obvious that whatever UNSCR 1718 does or threatens to do to the Dirty
Commies in North Korea will not be done unless the Dirty Chinese Commies decide
it is in their self-interest.
Furthermore, it is obvious that whatever UNSCR 1696 does or threatens to do
to the Crazy Iranian Mullahs will not be done unless the Dirty Chinese Commies
decide it is in their self-interest.
And it now appears that the principal result of Bush-Cheney-Rice-Bolton ramming
the US-India nuclear deal
through Congress and the NSG will be the establishment of a Russian-Chinese-Indian
co-prosperity sphere, encompassing the Caspian Sea nuclear-oil-gas energy resources
of Kazakhstan and Iran, as well as the Persian Gulf oil-gas energy resources
of Iran and perhaps even Iraq.
Recall that the rationale for the US-India nuclear deal – which effectively
would allow India to enjoy all the benefits of being a Nuclear-Weapons State
under the NPT, without being required to subject all nuclear materials (including
nuclear weapons) and programs to a comprehensive IAEA Safeguards agreement as
required by the NPT – was to get India to [a] support the imposition of sanctions
on Iran under UNSCR 1696, [b] cancel the Iran-Pakistan-India natural gas pipeline
project, and [c] join the Bush-Cheney-Rice-Bolton vigilante posse (aka Proliferation
Security Initiative), enforcing sanctions on North Korea and Iran under UNSCRs
1718 and 1696.
Now, as a result of Hu’s visit to India last week (with a party of 117 Chinese
"businessmen") there may well result a China-India nuclear agreement,
very similar in terms to the US-India civilian nuclear agreement.
Worse, Hu and his party went on to Pakistan where he appears have begun negotiations
on a similar China-Pakistan civilian nuclear agreement.
As you may recall, President Bush made a point of going directly to Pakistan
after announcing the US-India agreement, to publicly announce that arch-enemy
Pakistan did not deserve – because of past proliferating activities involving
Iran and North Korea – and would not get the same kind of deal he had just brokered
That’s what passes for "diplomacy" under Bush-Cheney-Rice-Bolton.
