So the UN want to have a new treaty on exporting weapons around the world. The UN voted on the subject and the result? 139 in favour, 26 abstain and 1 voted no. Guess who, the Americans of course voted against. http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/N26250543.htm The Americans are all in favour of "voluntary principles aimed at guiding arms deals". I wonder why?
