    What?

    and the rest of the world as "freedom oppressors"
    What?

    and fine them for arming any resistance efforts to foreign dictators. Why we continue to fund this UN madness, much less pretend it has ANY power is beyond me.
    Yea because we all know strong rules that protect human rights, and preventing arms from being sent to those would would use these arms to violate those rights are really a bad thing, right?

    Is the Treaty beneficial to the US? To our economy? If its no, then we shouldn't ratify it.

    I say good.If the the anti- UN arms trade treaty sites are correct then this is a bad deal for Americans.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Of course the U.S. and Russia are why it failed at least they agree on something. You can't stop exporting to countries that abuse human rights and all that stuff, can't do that can they.

    Because all countries are not equal.

    Now there's a novel idea for a socialist.

    our main exports should be food, health care and energy technology innovation, and humanitarian aid. if we come bringing food and help, we'll need to spend a lot less on guns and war.

    Bullets don't spoil, are cheap to make, and easy to ship. Food is none of those things. Also, the people with all the money(potential customers) don't WANT the things you listed...they want weapons.

    What are you ****ing talking about? I've seen some people twist words before but this is pure bull**** on your part, there is nothing not a god damn thing in this treaty to suggest Jihadists are freedom fighters and whatever dribble you're spewing. How the hell can you perceive the world like this? Do you just make **** up instead of actual reading, educating yourself? Seriously dude, this a perfect example of everything wrong with this country.

    I can stand reasonable disagreement, but this is just making **** up you should be ashamed of yourself for having to argue like this and spreading these kind of outright lies.

    You want to put Americans out of work by restricting our gun exports?
