    WASHINGTON — John Bolton (search), the newly named ambassador to the United Nations, has begun to do exactly what his supporters hoped, and his critics feared he would do — he has made a concerted effort to keep the focus of the world body on reforms.

    Bolton has recommended about 750 changes to a document identifying the U.N.'s objectives for reforming itself.

    The collision course began last month when Bolton met with U.N. General Assembly President Jean Ping of Gabon. Ping had spent the better part of the year perfecting a 38-page manifesto that was to serve as a model for future U.N. resolutions that pledge member states to fight hunger, poverty and terrorism.

    Ping's draft was cruising toward approval by 175 world leaders at the U.N.'s World Summit scheduled for mid-September. But last week, Bolton submitted his changes and asked Ping either to hash it out line by line or adopt a simpler, two- or three-page document.

    We don't need to reform the United Nations. We need to get out of it! Period!
