    No one is obliged to sign anything they don't agree with. I wish we could flip a switch and make all the bad things in the world disappear forever but reality isn't that simple. I see the Treaty as a transitional tool, to help us to rid the world of many problems which cannot be stopped as easily as flipping a switch or pressing the brake pedal in your car.
