UN Ambassador Bolton Refuses To Answer Kucinich’s Questions About US Troops In Iran: States That US Is Prepared To Act With or Without The UN

Kucinich and Bolton

Despite numerous public reports stating that US troops are currently conducting operations within Iran, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) refused to answer repeated questions by Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) about US troops in Iran, May 2nd at a House Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats and International Relations.

Kucinich, the Ranking Member on the Subcommittee, repeatedly questioned Ambassador Bolton on the effect that US troops operating within Iran will have on diplomatic negotiations already underway, including those at the UN.

“This Administration has set our nation on a very dangerous path with Iran. Congress must intervene before this Administration begins a wider, and far more dangerous war in the Middle East,” concluded Kucinich.

Info on Iran incursions

All of this is especially disturbing since the new
draft UN resolution regarding Iran's nuclear activities invokes Chapter 7 of the UN charter allowing for the possible (in the Bush administration's case: definite) use of military force.
