"Annan: Bolton Must Cooperate With Envoys"

Yahoo News:

He cautioned that Bolton won't get what he wants if he tries to take on other U.N. diplomats alone.

"I think it is all right for one ambassador to come and push, but an ambassador always has to remember that there are 190 others who will have to be convinced, or a vast majority of them, for action to take place," Annan said.
Given the U.N.'s reputation, I guess nothing will ever get done, other than talk, talk, talk, talk, talk. Kind of like the 17 resolutions passed to reprimand Saddam.

Watch out, Kofi! Get ready for some tough love and reforms!
