UN Secretary General Kofi Anan says UN Ambassador John Bolton has been of little help in defusing the volatile middle east violence between Israel and Lebanon.  When asked what the US could offer regarding the stand-off, Bolton reportedly said “Beats me, why?”  He also said “We’re not that much for getting the sides together on
de-escalation. We’re much better at escalation. If you need it to escalate later, give me call.”

For his part, President Bush said, “The food here’s great,” when pressed on the issue by reporters at the G8 Summit in St. Petersburg.
