I'm interested in preventing Islamist takeovers in Egypt and Syria. I'm interested in preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. I'm interested in transitioning from an income tax system to a flat, consumption tax system that helps American companies compete with global competition. Does this help?

Seriously though, I don't know how this treaty is supposed to benefit the US. It can't be as simple as spreading American standards around the world. If it is, what's in it for the countries that are agreeing to adopt our standards?
