    UN Arms Treaty AGAIN


    After Obama win, U.S. backs new U.N. arms treaty talks


    Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee's call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade.
    U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge Washington denies.
    The month-long talks at U.N. headquarters broke off after the United States - along with Russia and other major arms producers - said it had problems with the draft treaty and asked for more time.


    An official at the U.S. mission said Washington's objectives have not changed.
    "We seek a treaty that contributes to international security by fighting illicit arms trafficking and proliferation, protects the sovereign right of states to conduct legitimate arms trade, and meets the concerns that we have been articulating throughout," the official said.
    "We will not accept any treaty that infringes on the constitutional rights of our citizens to bear arms," he said.
    Can we trust our govt?

    LOL We absolutely cannot trust our government, especially after this election. Hell, we can no longer trust our fellow citizens to do the right thing.

    Looks like Mussolini; sure does. I noticed it too. He can't help it, he's stuck up.
    Narcissists usually are.
