    "No international human right of self-defence is expressly set forth in the primary sources of international law: treaties, customary law, or general principles."

    I don't know that a tyranny has stated its ideology and ultimate goals any more plainly than this since the publication of Mein Kampf. If we remain as deaf and blind to this insanity as the world did to Hitler in the 1930's, we will suffer - and deserve - the same fate, or worse.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Kathianne again.

    Great find!

    Before you arrive at the above conclusion, might I suggest that you look at the underlying Report. Seems this blogger has distorted the underlying meaning.

    So here ya go:

    Perhaps, but as noted, some pretty good legal minds beg to differ:

    Thanks, Kathianne. And - I reiterate - the statement,

    "No international human right of self-defence is expressly set forth in the primary sources of international law: treaties, customary law, or general principles."

    ...is chilling on its face, let alone the tryrannical future implications it contains. The U.N. busies itself trying to obliterate the concept of sovereignty in all cases - large and small.

    On a seperate note, I want to thank Kathianne for bringing up that article by Glenn Reynolds. I've actually been searching for a lawyer whose area of expertise includes future technologies and space.

    Well, I figured I would go check out something of Glen Reynolds that really shouldn't have been that controversial. So I chose the copyright article. He opined the following:

    Now, obviously, Congress disagrees with Reynolds and I do believe the Court doesn't quite see things his way. BTW, it's not that difficult to publish when you're in academia. You can say all kinds of stuff so long as you publish. No? Now, I'm not saying he's not a smart or capable guy. He clearly is. But his ESSAY is nothing more than an ESSAY and a surmise. It has no weight and is nothing more than his "opinion" or surmise.

    And it doesn't excuse the fact that he distorted the report he was talking about which had nothing to do with the purpose he used it for. So there ya go. But no worries...easier to accept what you choose and ignore the actual report. Me? I'd rather draw my own conclusions as to what it says then have it filtered through someone else's biases.

    And forgive me for not attaching a link to the law review article. It's linked to my westlaw account. I made sure it was attributed, though.
