Japan was attacking everybody in the south pacific including China , what did you expect us to do?
Thailand , Malaysia , Australia and a hundred little islands fell before their aggression. Pearl was a preemptive strike to try to defect the US before the inevitable war they knew would come.

No but we are a member of the United Nations and the one with the backbone of the world behind us. Sanctions are the only non combative method we can use to try to stop countries from down a path
this is or we fear eventually will be leading to the harm of other nations.

I don't feel a nation can justify aggression based on another nations aggression towards others . By your standards an oil embargo on the US by anyone would be justified today

We have a constitution , getting us to follow it was a long hard road. But this constitution frees all men and led to the forming of the United Nations and with the declaration of universal human rights.
If there IS one thing I do believe in , it is this.

No treaty can override the Constitution or U.S. laws.
The treaty was designed to restrict arms shipments to war torn areas without approval, hence it would have made it a crime to sell arms to human rights violating regimes.

But it failed because we are deep into the international arms trade industry supplying up to 40% of all guns worldwide.

History of the Document
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by the UN General Assembly on 10 December 1948, was the result of the experience of the Second World War. With the end of that war, and the creation of the United Nations, the international community vowed never again to allow atrocities like those of that conflict happen again. World leaders decided to complement the UN Charter with a road map to guarantee the rights of every individual everywhere. The document they considered, and which would later become the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, was taken up at the first session of the General Assembly in 1946. The Assembly reviewed this draft Declaration on Fundamental Human Rights and Freedoms and transmitted it to the Economic and Social Council "for reference to the Commission on Human Rights for consideration ... in its preparation of an international bill of rights." The Commission, at its first session early in 1947, authorized its members to formulate what it termed "a preliminary draft International Bill of Human Rights". Later the work was taken over by a formal drafting committee, consisting of members of the Commission from eight States, selected with due regard for geographical distribution.


In 1950, on the second anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, students at the UN International Nursery School in New York viewed a poster of the historic document. After adopting it on December 10, 1948, the UN General Assembly had called upon all Member States to publicize the text of the Declaration and "to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories." (UN Photo)
The Commission on Human Rights was made up of 18 members from various political, cultural and religious backgrounds. Eleanor Roosevelt, widow of American President Franklin D. Roosevelt, chaired the UDHR drafting committee. With her were René Cassin of France, who composed the first draft of the Declaration, the Committee Rapporteur Charles Malik of Lebanon, Vice-Chairman Peng Chung Chang of China, and John Humphrey of Canada, Director of the UN’s Human Rights Division, who prepared the Declaration’s blueprint. But Mrs. Roosevelt was recognized as the driving force for the Declaration’s adoption.

"If you don't think a large piece of the US constitution went into the design , your judgement is beyond repair."
