Remember Paul Wolfowitz? Former deputy defence secretary of George W. Bush? Of course, he is best known as the prime architect of Iraq invasion. Now this fellow is going to be the next president of World Bank. He's Bush's choice, and Bush can only choose according to his own tastes and sensibilities.
Wolfowitz is a hard-headed hawk who is responsible for shaping the neoconservative policy of imposing American hegemony in a unipolar world. No wonder the European Union has grudging support to this appointment.
The World Bank, already a hate figure, especially in thirld world countries, is expected to wreak a fresh bout of havoc with Wolfowitz as its chief.
