US Senate: Chickens of the Sea?

Here's a very interesting article on the little-known Law of the Sea, a treaty the US should sign. As the article says, "'You have an agreement that's endorsed by a Republican president, the Department of State, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Coast Guard, an overwhelming number of senators from both political parties, business groups, trade associations, and you already have 155 countries that are party to the treaty. It seems like if you can't get that through, I don't know what kind of treaty you can get through the Senate,' said Spencer Boyer, director of international law and diplomacy for the Center for American Progress."
