Ratifying UN Law of the Sea Treaty Would Harm U.S. Sovereignty Part II
The United States of America should not ratify the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), known as the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST).1 Part I of this series mentioned the 20 treaties the USA is already a party to, which govern maritime matters in territorial and international waters globally. Part I also revealed numerous ways the USA would sacrifice its national sovereignty, compromise national security, harm American companies, hamper criminal prosecution, and subject our nation to a mandatory dispute resolution process. This Part II continues the list of consequences if the United States Senate approves LOST for ratification.
