UN Reform: What matters most?  Oh, and Just Say No to John Bolton

Posted June 20,2005: It would not be extreme to say that this is a defining moment for the relationship between the United States and the United Nations. A good part of the US appears to be caught up in a wave of populist and provincial sentiment that reflects not so much isolationism as confusion over what roles we want for the US and for the UN in the 21st century. Our foreign policy should express our intentions, but if we are divided and confused, it is not surprising that we find it hard to speak and act coherently on the international stage.

Just Say No To John Bolton

Posted June 13,2005: I was recently taken aback when a friend of mine opined that "everyone basically thinks the UN is useless and ineffectual" and didn't I agree? No, I said, I did not agree and in fact, the more I learn about the United Nations, the more profoundly I have come to respect it and the people who work in the varied institutions that comprise the international political, social and economic arena we blithely label "the United Nations."
