Mark is right, of course. But riddle me this. Why on earth, given Mark’s unassailable history lesson, would we possibly want to make all the same mistakes again by joining the U.N.’s Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), as Messrs. Baker and Schultz urge in the WSJ today (behind the subscription curtain), and as the administration is now pushing? I’ve railed about this here before. I notice Baker and Schultz, in singing its praises, don’t get around to mentioning that it creates a U.N.-like supervisory authority and a mini-World Court.
What’s that word again for when you continuously repeat the same behavior expecting a different result?
