Posted on 07/27/2012 6:05:39 PM PDT by Neil E. Wright
Talks over the UN Arms Trade Treaty fell apart today, effectively killing the agreement. The Arms Trade Treaty Legal Blog reports that the process seemed to be moving to completion when the United States requested an extension to the time to negotiate the agreement. This opened the door to other countries to begin registering objections, and it soon became clear that reaching agreement within the allowed timeframe would be impossible. The proposed treaty, which raised considerable domestic opposition from gun rights advocates in the United States, died before it had a chance to become a threat. As a delegate from China observed, "C'est la vie et la vie c'est ça."

Now on to the Law Of the Sea Treaty (LOST)...it’s time to sink it!!!! CALL YOUR SENATORS!!!!
I agree. Temporary
“C’est la vie et la vie c’est ça”
Seize the UN, raze the building, and put up the world’s biggest Chick-Fil-A. Y’all go do your misery on European soil and without our participation or compliance.
The only way to truly kill it is to eliminate the UN.
The UN would not survive without the US
good. kill it dead
It would be fun watching the UN collapse.
First they’d fight over who gets to house the UN and all the wealthy diplomats it brings with a fair number of countries packing up and leaving with us.
It would be especially entertaining if they landed in the mideast where there would be weekly bombings.

i will NOT submit!
Didn't really end up coming out that nicely as it's written there, but hey. What are you gonna do, huh? He's Chinese.
It’s not dead, just in hibernation, it’s like Jason in Friday the 13th, it just keeps coming back.
The UN is dead. It has a deadly wound in it’s head. It may miraculously rise from the dead at some point like the future world leader prophesied in the Bible (Revelation 13:3).
“Seize the UN, raze the building, and put up the worlds biggest Chick-Fil-A. Yall go do your misery on European soil and without our participation or compliance.”
I fully agree!
Exactly! I also note that over the last couple of years we have heard a number of times that some devilish plan was dead, only to see it rear it’s head seemingly hours later.
I’ll believe this round is dead at least a week after the Olympics is over.
I don't mean to embarrass you, but the LOST treaty died on July 16, 2012:
