The UN Small Arms Treaty: Negotiating with an enemy

On May 3rd, 1994, then President Clinton signed Presidential Directive 25 (PDD-25).  This directive placed US military commanders under the jurisdiction of the United Nations if the UN was conducting an action of some kind, anywhere.  The actual text of the directive remains sealed and classified.

PDD25 was originally written as PDD-13.  The re-write of PPD-13 and conversion to PDD-25 was needed to exclude a disclaimer from General Colin Powell, the 1993 Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  This disclaimer made certain that US commanders would not have to comply with UN orders which were:

  • Outside the mandate of the mission or,
  • illegal under US law or,
  • militarily imprudent or unsound.

PDD-25 of course, removed these provisions.

#25 also makes no distinction as to where UN meddling might be taking place, and no provision was included to exclude any actions by the UN within the geographical United States.  What may keep the UN and its “peacekeeping forces” out of the US is that if they show up here, they will not get a glowing reception.  No one would be happy to see them and we would not greet them with flowers and garlands, nor would we cheer their arrival.  It is however, a distinct possibility that they would be greeted with massive amounts of fireworks.  And that appears to be a long-standing concern for those dedicated to disarming the world so that only they and their armies have weapons.  It makes overtaking one country after another so much easier if you are the only one who is armed.
