The U.S. Navy has successfully protected America's maritime interests for the past 200 years, including the past 30 years after the Law of the Sea Treaty was proposed in 1982, which we never joined. The claim that our right to freedom of the seas will be damaged unless we join the treaty is simply false. Joining this treaty would give us one vote out of 41 with no veto authority and no right of appeal. Our best course of action is to protect our national interests and remain the number-one naval power in the world. Thank you Admiral James Lyons for stating so clearly that the Law of the Sea Treaty is still just as dangerous as when Ronald Reagan rejected it back in 1981.
