Down with the Law of the Sea Treaty!

From the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) Teleconference:

Posted by 1389

Efforts to prevent the sovereignty undermining Law of the Sea Treaty from taking effect continue.

The main website is http://www.rejectLost.org. You can also read about this bad treaty at the Vigilant Freedom Blog (http://www.vigilantfreedom.org/910blog/2007/10/02/356/):

Why does LOST present such a threat to United States sovereignty?

Here are a few of the many problems with the treaty:

  • LOST would give the United Nations power over US interests. The UN's multilateral agencies and bureaucrats cannot be trusted to oversee or administer 70% of the world's surface covered by its oceans.
  • LOST could set alarming precedents for the international control of other" international commons" such as Outer Space or the Internet
  • LOST would give the United Nations its long sought power of taxation, using taxes on seabed mining to fund its Anti-American activities.
  • LOST encourages China's and Russia's aggressive territorial claims to oceans.
  • LOST could subject the U.S. to decisions enforced by activist American judges, importing foreign or perhaps even "international" law into the courtroom, or perhaps even a UN Navy...

For more information, listen to Center for Security Policy's Frank Gaffney speak with bloggers about Lost here: http://www.vigilantfreedom.org/audio/LOST_briefing_9-26-07.wma, and read this piece by the Investor's Business Daily discussing LOST: http://www.ibdeditorials.com/IBDArticles.aspx?id=275613778444636.
