It has everything to do with the US demanding that other countries follow US protocol. Whatever that protocol might be. If this were an anti-smoking ratification, I'd still feel the same way. I don't think we need UN policy to force other countries to be more like the US. It's as simple as that. This ratification does nothing for the US. We already have these things in place. All it does is make other countries play by US rules, which generally causes those other countries to hate us. We are not the policy makers for the world.
Good post. I agree.
