U.N. Arms Trade Treaty Postponed

Published:

Postponed, not defeated. Angry

U.N. member states have failed to reach agreement on a new treaty to regulate the multibillion-dollar global arms trade.

Some diplomats and treaty supporters blamed the United States for triggering the unraveling of the month-long negotiating conference.

Hopes had been raised that agreement could be reached on a revised treaty text that closed some key loopholes by Friday's deadline for action*. But the United States announced Friday morning that it needed more time to consider** the proposed treaty -- and Russia and China then also asked for more time.

A bipartisan group of 51 U.S. senators on Thursday had threatened to oppose the global treaty regulating international weapons trade if it falls short in protecting the constitutional right to bear arms.

* Friday as in the kickoff for the Olympics? Ponder Called it last week.See Ya!  Shmucks were supposed to be busy watching the opening ceremony, instead of casting an eye on this plot. A certain Colorado idgit is going to get a few extra slaps upside his big stupid orange head, for this.

** The only thing these jerks are "considering" is how to slide this through without eating dirt on (s)election day.  Mad

They didn't get the desired reaction from the big orange head show. Instead of the expected hand-wringing and begging for more security blankets, Americans went out the next day and purchased guns in record numbers. Concealed-carry classes are getting booked solid. Problem-reaction-solution FAIL.

Was that an NRA gun nut that thwarted the internet cafe (attempted) robbery in Florida, recently?
Do you suppose the other patrons would have fared better had he not been present?
