The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations is stepping down.

Unable to win American Senate confirmation, John Bolton will resign once his temporary appointment expires within a few weeks, the White House said Monday.

Bolton‘s nomination has languished in the Senate foreign relations committee for more than a year, blocked by Democrats and several Republicans.

Bye bye Bolton.

Good riddance to bad warmongering rubbish.

Like with Donald Rumsfeld (see also here).

Now Bush, Blair, Cheney, Rice, the whole gang, have to go.

Bolton update here.

August 2009 update: Washington’s ambassador to the UN said that the United States had paid the price for “stiff-arming” the international community and declared that it has embarked on a new era of global engagement: here.

George W Bush’s UN ambassador John Bolton was wheeled out by Sky News at the weekend to issue dark threats about the future of the “special relationship” if Britain ever scrapped its nuclear weapons: here.
