John Bolton, Evil Neighbor

Jonathan discovers a scary neighbor in his past(detailed in the link):

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 now describes it as "perfectly legitimate... and good politics"...

Mr Bolton, a controversial and blunt-speaking figure, said he was "damned proud of what we did" to prevent an early ceasefire.

War and religious/ethnic cleansing: "good politics" when you're a member of the Bush Crime Family.
