How doth Bush hate us? Let us count the ways

Here is a list of the treaties that Bush and/or other American administrations have undermined:

1 Refusal to ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT)
2 Opposed to strengthening the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC)
3 Withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty
4 Criticism of the anti-personell land mines treaty
5 Criticism of UNs proposal on the control of light arms
6 Opposition to the International Criminal Court
7 Reluctance to co-operate on conventions on terrorism
and finally, of course,
8 Rejection of the Kyoto Accords.

Is there perhaps some kind of pattern emerging here?
Is Dubya trying to tell us something?

Such as, "International agreements come out of the bomb-bay of a B-52".
Or possibly "Why should I need to sit round a boring table? Bombing people is much more fun".
