UN backs away from small arms treaty

Weasel Zippers

Guns are not to be limited by the UN.

 

From the Foreign Policy Blog

The United States upended a major international treaty negotiation, telling foreign delegates at the final session today that they needed more time to consider the pact. Some diplomats said that Washington is seeking another six months, pushing off any decision on the politically sensitive treaty until after the U.S. election. Russia, Indonesia, and India also asked for more time.

Today the U.S. did not grab the golden ring: an international arms treaty that would have bolstered our country’s reputation as a elader on human rights,” said Scott Stedjman, senior policy advisor for Oxfam. “Moving forward, President Obama must show the political courage required to make a strong treaty that contains strong rules on human rights a reality.”

  1. Only Dictators want the guns of people.

  2. I DO NOT BELIEVE ONE WORD OF SOETERO… If anything, Only the contrare… He will postpone his announcemnt of “DICTATORSHIP” Till either Martial Law or he ‘wins’ the election.. These People are Extremely Evil and WILL BE/ ARE OUT FOR OUR GUNS… at any cost…..

  3. Roy, do you remember when he said, “I may suspend the election to fix the budget”?

  4. Upaces, soerero DEFINITELY intends to stay in office at any cost. He has withstood every investigation, private and congressional, and is STILL in office. There is NOTHING sacred or that he will NOT disrepect to stay in office. Yes, I DO REMEMBER… HE WILL MARTIAL LAW US IN SOME WAY or another…….Or, just ‘ win ‘ the Election….

    • Tiny, tiny correction…..”win” the Election…”
      He won’t win…He’ll TAKE IT.

      • Upaces, I stand corrected… soetero will NOT WIN ANYTHING, ONLY WHAT HIS HANDLERS HAVE PURCHASED FOR HIM……. AND HE WON’T HOLD IT VERY LONG…… THE PEOPLE WQILL TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK…..

      • We always try to do things the “right way”…voting. My fear is?….if we do it the right way…he will be prepared having either foreign troops on our soil to protect the WH and/or his private Military and it will be a blood bath.
        There was an article in the last couple of days that stated the Military intends to do it “before” the election because it is already fixed for him to be in the WH (please note: I did NOT say elected again to the WH).
