Steyn on Bolton

Steyn is an editorializing sharp-shooter. Here he takes off from Cliff May's great point with respect to Bolton's confirmation: "the real debate is between those who think the U.N. needs reform -- and those who think the U.S. needs reform.'' Here's a taste:
Whatever one feels about it, the United States manages to function. The U.N. apparatus doesn't. Indeed, the United States does the U.N.'s job better than the U.N. does. The part of the tsunami aid operation that worked was the first few days, when America, Australia and a handful of other nations improvised instant and effective emergency relief operations that did things like, you know, save lives, rescue people, restore water supply, etc. Then the poseurs of the transnational bureaucracy took over, held press conferences demanding that stingy Westerners needed to give more and more and more, and the usual incompetence and corruption followed.
