US "Resisted" Cease Fire in Lebanon in 2006

"Damned proud of what we did."
--John Bolton


"..A former top American diplomat says the US deliberately resisted calls for a immediate ceasefire during the conflict in Lebanon in the summer of 2006.

Former ambassador to the UN John Bolton told the BBC that before any ceasefire Washington wanted Israel to eliminate Hezbollah’s military capability…

Mr Bolton now describes it as “perfectly legitimate… and good politics”…

Mr Bolton, a controversial and blunt-speaking figure, said he was “damned proud of what we did” to prevent an early ceasefire.."

Some of the Lebanese children that Neo-con Bolton is so "damned proud of".
