What? He seems like such a sweet guy...




Click the manly mustachioed man and see if he doesn't charm the pants off of you (or, scare the crap out of you if you're one of those latte-drinking "girly" Americans). America kicks ass!

Fortunately, Bolton just might be toast. And, as a result, he might ultimately provide the MSM with an opening to finally begin discussing The Downing Street Memo:
John R. Bolton flew to Europe in 2002 to confront the head of a global arms-control agency and demand he resign, then orchestrated the firing of the unwilling diplomat in a move a U.N. tribunal has since judged unlawful, according to officials involved.

A former Bolton deputy says the U.S. undersecretary of state felt Jose Bustani "had to go," particularly because the Brazilian was trying to send chemical weapons inspectors to Baghdad. That might have helped defuse the crisis over alleged Iraqi weapons and undermined a U.S. rationale for war...

The Iraq connection to the OPCW affair comes as fresh evidence surfaces that the Bush administration was intent from early on to pursue military and not diplomatic action against Saddam Hussein's regime.

An official British document, disclosed last month, said Prime Minister Tony Blair agreed in April 2002 to join in an eventual U.S. attack on Iraq. Two weeks later, Bustani was ousted, with British help.
My, my, how the plot thickens...
