UN fails to reach deal on global arms trade treaty, as US asks for more time

U.N. member states have failed to reach agreement on a new treaty to regulate the multibillion-dollar global arms trade.

Some diplomats and treaty supporters blamed the United States for triggering the unraveling of the month-long negotiating conference.

Hopes had been raised that agreement could be reached on a revised treaty text that closed some key loopholes by Friday’s deadline for action. But the United States announced Friday morning that it needed more time to consider the proposed treaty — and Russia and China then also asked for more time.

    The U.N. has proven time and time again that it does not
    know what it is doing. It is made up of
    power grabbing and money grabbing diplomats that are living high off the dues
    that the U.S. and other nations have spent on it. The U.N. wants to control the whole world or
    should I say a few powerful men in the U. N. want to control the world. IF they ever get the U.S. to agree with gun
    control then freedom is lost forever on this plant without a complete civil war
    to return freedom and control back to the people. The U.N. does not want to end world hunger or
    aids or stop dictators; it only wants more money and power for the few top
    select few. When you take peoples guns away
    you only make it easier for a dictator to take over.
