My Interview with Michael Byers, Canada Research Chair in Global Politics and International Law at UBC
Byers on US hegemony:
“There are many people within the United States who don’t actually see the distinction between the domestic and the international issue, who think the US constitution is superior to any international treaty not just inside the United States but around the world. Thats the perspective that I challenge…But when you are as powerful as the United States its easy to assume that that power legitimizes your particular view”.
Byers on moral inconsistencies:
“There is an opening to accusations of selectivity, including on the part of Obama,’Why did you not investigate the water-boarding that took place under the prior administration, and yet here you’re willing to send missile strikes against a sovereign state for another alleged war crime?'”
