Obama proposes binding US to international rules for security

President Obama advocated that nations will have to give up some of their autonomous freedoms for international cooperation to achieve security on Tuesday during his speech to the United Nations General Assembly.

Obama told the audience how he believes global security can be achieved with the help of international institutions like the U.N. In his remarks, Obama said “powerful nations” like the United States will have to accept constraints and give up some of their freedoms. The president acknowledged that he has been criticized by his own citizens for this belief but he remains convinced he is right. Obama also stated that while countries will have to accept some limits on their freedom, they should not give up autonomous rights like the freedom to defend themselves.

“We can only realize the promise of this institution’s founding to replace the ravages of war with cooperation if powerful nations like my own accept constraints,” Obama said. “I’m convinced in the long run giving up some freedom of action, not giving up our ability to protect ourselves or pursue our core interests but binding ourselves to international rules, over the long-term, enhances our security.”

  1. “but he remains convinced he is right”, of course, he is never wrong, just ask him.

  2. Of course the kenyan dickwad has no such authority to do so without congressional approval.
