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

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

  • 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...
