Renunciation of renunciation?

Isn't there an extra "the renunciation of" in the current title and first sentence of this article ("Treaty providing for the renunciation of the renunciation of war..."? The current title sounds more like a description of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact than of the Kellogg-Briand. Bruce M.Tindall 16:31, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Yep. Thanks. In the document, it was in all caps, so I retyped it in upper and lower and must have duplicated the text. I'll fix it; I hope it's just there and not in the crossreferences. This, at least, isn't the longest treaty name I know.
As to your example, there was a story, of unknown veracity, that Ribbentrop's staff wanted to give him, for his birthday or something, a beautifully crafted binder holding all the treaties he had negotiated. Unfortunately, although they had the book made, they couldn't find any treaties someone hadn't repudiated. Howard C. Berkowitz 16:40, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
