US Empire vs. UN Empire
One of the few good arguments against US intervention in Iraq is that it might be a step on the road to an American Empire. If we have to give up our sovereignty to the UN, we're going to have an Empire anyway. In that case, it may as well be our empire and not somebody else's.
At least our Empire will protect free speech and the right to keep and bear arms.
