Hillary Clinton: Opposition to Sea Treaty Based on 'Mythology'
CNS News ^ | 5/24/12 | Matt Cover

Posted on 05/24/2012 4:07:54 PM PDT by Nachum

(CNSNews.com) – The Senate Foreign Relations Committee began the latest round in a decades-long fight to ratify the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), known as the Law of the Sea Treaty, with supporters in the Obama administration and the military squaring off against Republican opponents on Wednesday.

“I am well aware that this treaty does have determined opposition, limited, but nevertheless quite vociferous,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the committee. “And it’s unfortunate because it’s opposition based in ideology and mythology, not in facts, evidence, or the consequences of our continuing failure to accede to the treaty.”

The treaty's opponents include Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), who criticized a provision that would mandate that the United States pay a portion of oil, gas, and seabed mining royalties conducted in deep ocean water – beyond 200 nautical miles from U.S. shores – to the international board that governs the treaty.

Inhofe said United States could possibly lose billions of dollars in royalties as oil companies begin drilling farther and farther offshore.

How many leftist, liberal disasters have begun by a rat stating something eerily similar to:

"(snip) it’s opposition based in ideology and mythology, not in facts, evidence, or the consequences of our continuing failure to accede..."

Rats have no ability to evaluate facts, look at evidence, or gain insight from anyplace other than their rectums. The Clintons are and have always been UN whores.

The last sentence:

"Despite not having ratified the treaty, the United States accepts all but the International Seabed Authority (ISA) provisions as binding international law, including the claim to development rights up to 200 nautical miles offshore."

Oh.

Why should some international board get royalties? What is their purpose, 200 miles offshore, aside from sitting on their dead fat butts and collecting money, because they like playing with other peoples’ money, and like having their lobster, filet, and fine wine funded by the serfs?

Speaking of witch Hillary does bear a strong resemblance to the Greek sea goddess Thalassa (Roman: Mare - not the hor.. er, never mind)

"Thalassa was depicted in Roman-era mosaics as a woman half-submerged in the sea, with crab-claw horns, clothed in bands of seaweed, and holding a ship's oar."

Distribution of wealth writ large. USA plundered by treaties and international law-—for the global good, dontcha see.

Inhofe: “This is the first time in history that an international organization – the U.N. in this case – would possess taxing authority over this country.”

This treaty has USA obligations not covered in this article:
