World Court/Afghanistan v. U.S.A. : LUSENET : Beyond the Sidewalks : One Thread

Hey, folks, I think I just had a good idea. The world court is now called the International Court of Justice, and both the US and Afghanistan have agreed to abide by its decisions (US in 1945, Afghanistan in 1946)

Here's some very interesting reading on the history, functions, etc of this court. It's too long to post here, with several links. Here's the court's home page:

Why not have Afghanistan and the US lay out their respective cases before the court, have them decide, then abide by the court's decision. The judges on the court come from many, many countries, and each country in a dispute is allowed to have a judge from their country sit on the panel, in the even they aren't already represented by one.

If we can't work it out, at least we have the "blessings of the court" before we go bombing everything in sight.

We can drop bombs while screaming "The Court's On Our Side"

Wish they had done that before we started bombing.

If we are to believe the news, we already have the blessings of much of the world. Doesnt sound like the Taliban gives a rip what the rest of the world thinks anywho.

I have learned that the UN Security Council has already issued a Resolution condemning OBL--TWO YEARS AGO!

Here's the url:

This action makes me feel a BIT better about our actions against OBL, but I still favor a solution based on reason, rather than slaughter.
