Human rights types always hold up international law as the great panacea that will save us from our abusive state. I have never really understood what international law is (I really should, since at least two of my colleagues teach it), but this decision out of the exalted hallowed International Court of Justice adjudicating a dispute between Nicaragua and Columbia took eleven (11) years to resolve.
Dickens complained about the length of cases, and was clearly criticizing the Court of Chancery when he wrote Bleak House. In fairness to the Chancery, they had already started to speed up their cases back then.
Today, 11 years is just unacceptable, especially if this court is supposed to be taken serioulsy.
