International Law “Forbids” Construction of the 30-meter Telescope: The position taken by Mauna Kea defenders that the building of the 30-meter telescope is a despoiling of consecrated area is immovably grounded in universal law. Since the Hawaiian Kingdom has been under an unlawful and delayed occupation by the United States subsequent to the Spanish-American War in 1898, the worldwide laws of occupation apply to Hawai'i's circumstance and not United States law. Worldwide law denies an impartial nation from being involved when two or more different nations are at war with one another.

It's part of the United States and you traitors should get used to this. I was taught in school that the Hawaiians voted on this issue, but now you people are telling me that's not true? My parents who came to the islands and lived here for many years voted. They voted yes. But now you flaming 'liberals' and stupid 'commies' want national health care? Independence? And us to pay you 122 years worth of war reparations? I should kill all of you right now, in fact we should of killed your Queen and your annoying people to begin with. You just remember who whipped the floor in Europe, think twice before overthrowing us. Not even China or Russia can defeat us. The flag you are taking down is the Stars and Stripes, which stands for freedom and democracy. The best country in the world. This is all I have to say. We are now going to patrol the streets to fight terrorists like you, just remember the torture report. We can do the same to you people, like how we raped those Columbian kids, like how during the Korean War we threw North Korean babies down the well, how we are training neo-Nazis in Ukraine to fight the Russians, we went down to rape those people in Eastern Ukraine, where people love these stupid 'commies' for some reason. We can get away with anything. So just you remember this."

And when the truth comes out, expect a big uproar," said Emily.
