Bolton admits Lebanon truce block

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.
Mr Bolton said an early ceasefire would have been "dangerous and misguided". He said the US decided to join efforts to end the conflict only when it was clear Israel's campaign wasn't working.
Mr Bolton, a controversial and blunt-speaking figure, said he was "damned proud of what we did" to prevent an early ceasefire.
More than 1,000 Lebanese civilians and [...] 43 of [Israel's] civilians were killed
So according to Bolton, killing 1000+ civilians isn't "dangerous and misguided". And he's proud that the US didn't stop the attack until it was clear that Israel was losing.

Personally I think Bolton is "dangerous and misguided."
