Choice of Bolton shows US mood by James Harding

Mr Bolton was the most conspicuous hawk in Colin Powell's State Department during the first Bush term, an unflinching advocate of military action against Iraq, a hardliner on Iran and North Korea and, quite often, a critic of multilateral diplomacy.

News last week that the White House has been considering Paul Wolfowitz, the deputy defence secretary and a neo-conservative hawk, as a candidate to head the World Bank further illustrates the spirit of international outreach in Mr Bush's second term.
