Remo Salta—The problem with Commander May’s argument on why the U.S. Senate should ratify the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) is that he never talks about who would actually enforce this treaty. He also mentions that smaller nations in the Pacific would welcome American involvement as a counterbalance to Chinese territorial claims in the region. I’m sure these smaller countries would like nothing better than to have the United States protect them with our large Navy.
