Strong Opposition to Bolton's Nomination

What effect will the nomination of John Bolton have on U.S. relations with the United Nations? It is known that Bolton does not hold the U.N. in highest regard, so could it be a statement by the White House as to how it views the U.N. itself? The White House has denied any such claims, but, don't actions speak louder than words? Why nominate a figure with a reputation such as Bolton's if you are trying to mend strained relations? Bolton's reputation is such that it has sparked a large protest by 59 former U.S. diplomats, Democrats and Republicans, that have fired a letter to Sen. Richard Luger, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, urging him to reject Bolton's nomination. If the White House is trying to mend relation it sure is walking down the wrong aisle. If it is trying to challenge the U.N., then it certainly is going in the right direction.

Excerpt
WASHINGTON - Challenging the White House, 59 former American diplomats are urging the Senate to reject John R. Bolton's nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
"He is the wrong man for this position," they said in a letter to Sen. Richard Lugar, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The Indiana Republican has scheduled hearings on Bolton's nomination for April 7.
