John Bolton understands the UN

This past week, as the newly-elected president of the Creighton College Republicans, I and some other members went down to Lincoln to see Ambassador John Bolton speak at the Univ. of Nebrasa about the UN. Great speech and one great point he made. The 50 or so member nations that voted for extensive UN reform to right the wrongs done by Oil-for-Food and other scandals (essentially the U.S., western and eastern European countries, Australia, and Japan) voted for the reforms, while 120 other nations voted down the reforms. These 120 other nations only contribute about 12 percent of the entire budget of the U.N., while the small group of 50 mostly western nations that voted for the reforms contribute about 80 percent of the U.N.'s overall operating budget. The numbers are just staggering. But of course, anyone who thought that reform in the UN would take place within a year is utterly clueless...

Bolton is doing his best to push reform through. Perhaps one of his greatest quotes during the speech occured when someone asked him why he thought he was always right. Bolton replied with a whiff of confidence, "I was one of the few philosophical conservatives at Yale. I was right then and I believe I'm right now."

Balkanization of America

At a perilous time in history, when an underestimated, charismatic dictator with evil designs has the power and the insanity to threaten the civilized world, we have problems at home.

President Ahmadinejad of Iran represents the strand of radical, totalitarian Islam that is dominating Muslim circles at the moment. Here at home, as evidenced by this Washington Post article, we have a sect of extremely conservative Muslims who feel that to live their lives of faith, thy must cut themselves off from almost all contact with the modern western world, living in small groups and clustered around a mosque and several community-owned stores and services. It is this kind of self-segregated isolation that led to the radical, extremist elements in Britain, that attempted to blow up several airliners recently (Britain leads the world in radical imams and segregated Muslim communities where death to America and extremism is preached and cultivated daily). If the U.S. government does not take action immediately to halt this extremist ideology and coerce these Islamic communities in the D.C. area and elsewhere into integration, we will face the same danger as our ally across the pond. America, the great melting pot with a unified purpose and culture, will succumb to ethnic fragmentation as has been realized in the Balkans in eastern Europe.
