Fault line in new war court plan

AT first sight, Richard Laming's suggestion (Write Back, September 4) that "there should be an international court to reach a judgment on which everyone could rely" regarding in what circumstances military action might be in accordance with international law, sounds sensible.

Unfortunately, from past experience of the way such international bodies conduct themselves, it is highly likely that such a court would be hijacked and spend most of its efforts in condemning Israel.
