Charlie,You've expressed the whole problem:I certainly do not want the U.N. to infringe on anyone's sovereigntyUntil nations, and most particularly the USA, are willing to give up some sovereignty; there will be no effective world court, nor, for that matter a respected and functional UN. However, in the end, and probably within a generation, we will have given up much of our feigned sovereignty vis-a-vis international law, anyway. And from there, the world will come together someday... So, we can either begin setting the foundations, and work toward this inevitability while we are the sole super power, and have a disproportionate sway over the laws --as we did at the founding of the UN-- or we can wait until China catches up to us. And then the Chinese can take the greater advantage of the new world order, just as we were able to take the greater advantage of the UN.Either way, the only question remaining is how much Mandarin our children will have to learn. ;)jf
