Ignoring your coming fate will not make it go away

Once Cassandra had been cursed by Apollo to prophesy the truth but never be believed, Troy was doomed. Countless times before and during the Trojan War Cassandra predicted what would come of the war, but no one believed her. Always it was Cassandra who recognized a face, who predicted a fateful occurrence, who ran around the ramparts of the city with her hair flying around her shoulders, crying and spouting oracles that no one understood. Most people considered her insane and tried to subdue her, but she was only trying desperately to warn her people of impending disaster.From Cassandra’s Prophesies For Troy
“From Cassandra to Jesus Christ, it is amazing how often the doomed choose to ignore those who warn them of their coming fate.”

Now I don’t know where the above quote originated but it has been used often enough to emphasize a point and as no-one believed Cassandra (cursed by Apollo) it appears the doomed continue to ignore those of us who warn you of your coming fate.  And it’s coming!
I don’t remember what year it was that I familiarized myself with the Law Of The Sea Treaty (LOST) but since that time I have taken on the role of Cassandra for I have warned all of you and no-one believes me…at least you have acted in disbelief  because the demise of America is close at hand and you have done nothing (All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.  ~ Edmund Burke).

Back in June of 2007 Secretary of State George Schultz sent a letter to Senator Lugar emphasizing the ratification of LOST under false pretenses. 
Dear Senator Lugar,

I understand that the Law of the Sea Treaty is once again likely to be considered by the Senate for consent to ratification. I am writing to let you know that I support ratification.

I have had a long history with this treaty. When I was Secretary of the Treasury in 1973, we got wind of this negotiation and discovered the language on control of mining in the deep sea-beds. We blew every whistle we could find to call attention to the undesirable features of what was being negotiated. Nevertheless, negotiations continued.

The question of ratification arose once again during the Reagan Administration. President Reagan, fully aware of the many desirable aspects of the treaty, nevertheless opposed ratification, fundamentally on the same grounds that led us to blow the whistle in the early 1970s.

The treaty has been changed in such a way with respect to the deep sea-beds that it is now acceptable, in my judgement. Under these circumstances, and given the many desirable aspects of the treaty on other grounds, I believe it is time to proceed with ratification.

It surprises me to learn that opponents of the treaty are invoking President Reagan's name, arguing that he would have opposed ratification despite having succeeded on the deep sea-bed issue. During his administration, with full clearance and support from President Reagan, we made it very clear that we would support ratification if our position on the sea-bed issue were accepted.

With my respect and adminstration for the sustained high quality of your public service.

Sincerely yours,  George P. Shultz

The language Shultz uses appeals to the un-informed Reagan fans but fails to mention the ultimate goal of the treaty and that is ultimate control of the United States by the most corrupt organization ever devised by man; the United Nations! I should also mention that ratification was supported by President Bush, and that he supported legislation that would pass aspects of LOST thus hiding it from the American people.  Obama did likewise within just a few weeks of occupying the White House by supporting changes to the Clean Water Act (CWA) under the guise of protecting our drinking water but in reality taking control of thousands of miles of privately owned water front property. 

A few years ago the subject was hot but not hot enough for the main stream media (MSM) who openly distorts news so as not to inform the general public of their impending doom…not hardly a mention of LOST was published nor broadcast by the MSM the last time ratification came up in the United States Senate.  And they are noticeably quiet again!  If it were not for people like Dick Morris to remind us we could be headed into the UN’s abyss under the Obama régime.  Here’s a link to Morris’ latest warning, Law Of The Sea Treaty Hearings Today!
