    This one is lengthy, I am just putting in a bit from the beginning. It gets meatier.

    LOST is a treaty that needs to be killed YESTERDAY.

    "At issue is the U.N. Law of the Sea Treaty, or LOST, which has been in the works since the 1970s, when the Soviet Union and the so-called Non-Aligned Movement tried to use the United Nations to wrest control of the seas from the United States and its allies.

    Under LOST, a global U.N. agency called the International Seabed Authority, or ISA, would take control of the world's oceans, seven-tenths of the earth's surface. The ISA would not be accountable to dues-paying members but would be a self-financing entity imposing a tax on countries that exploit natural resources on the ocean floor."




    just pulled the nasty bit.


    This sucks newguy. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. Your services are valuable.

    Yes i have heard of this before a couple months ago. I hadnt seen anything since so i had hoped that it died. This is total BS. No one should control that much of the world's surface without any accountability.
