(News) World Bank and UN positions go to Bush Hardliners

Words fail me in regards to the two new appointments at the UN and The World Bank.

The New US Ambassador to the UN is John Bolton who is possibly one of the most anti-UN people on Bush's staff (The Enemy Within; Guardian Unlimited; Thursday 10th March 2005)

And Paul Wolfowitz has been named as the key nomination to become the new head of the World Bank, much to the dismay of many aid agencies, charaities and (reading between the lines) many countries which don't have USA as their initials. (Dismay at Wolfowitz's Nomination; BBC News OnLine; Thusrday 17th March 2005)
