I'm beginning to think you have gone past the ignorant stage.
Kyoto and the world court are unrelated, except in the minds of liberals. One's acceptance is not dependant on the other and it is the Prsident's job to ensure the United States best interests, not some third world lefty countries interests.
The basic reason that the US is not part of the world court is because it violates YOUR constitutional rights. You have a right under our constitution to appeal in our court systems. That would be eliminated in the world court system. You would have no constitutional guarantees. The morons that rail against the Patriot act and how it takes our rights away are the same morons hollering loudest to join the world court when it does even worse than the Patriot act ever could. The Patriot act is subject to our court systems review, as recently happened here. The world court has no such limitations.
WTF are they teaching you in school how to bleat like a sheep?
