Palin Cries Uncle on UNCLOS

I was not planning to spend much time discussing the 2008 U.S. presidential election, but Opinio Juris has a interesting post on Sarah Palin (Republican vice presidential candidate) in her role as Alaskan governor encouraging the ratification of United Nations Convention on the Laws of the Seas (UNCLOS).

Opinio Juris notes that Palin seems primarily concerned about losing access to mineral resources by failing to ratify.

Opinio Juris also goes on to talk about John McCain's disapproval of UNCLOS.

Swing by and give it a read.

I'm currently researching Barack Obama and Joe Biden's opinions on the matter.
