PRESS RELEASE


LaRouche Demands Bolton
Be Defeated in the Senate

May 13, 2005 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the LaRouche PAC political action committee.

Lyndon LaRouche today demanded that the Senate follow up the Foreign Relation Committee's refusal to recommend the nomination of John Bolton to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, by defeating the nomination.

Capitulation by people in the Senate would be pure cowardice, LaRouche warned, and lead to disaster. It would be an act of pure cowardice, which would spread to the United Nations, and lead to the United Nations being rendered less than useless.

The situation is similar to that in 1933-34 when Hitler was allowed to consolidate power, LaRouche said. People let things occur when they could have stopped them. And the consequence was rampant cowardice, proceeding until the point when Hitler could not be stopped.

The Administration's policies are insane sophistry, LaRouche added. If they are not stopped, the country is finished. It is clear that enough Republicans oppose Bolton, to defeat the nomination. If these Senators go ahead and vote for the Bolton nomination because "the President has a right to his nominees," the country will go down.
