'Nuff said

(Occasional item taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes.)

-- John B. Bellinger III, Legal Advisor, U.S. Department of State, concluding his speech last Friday at a conference on the International Criminal Court (logo at left) at DePaul University College of Law, Chicago. Commentary on same from our Opinio Juris colleagues is here; a Wall Street Journal article on the conference as a whole here.
