The ICJ has TWO roles, and you have named only one - the one that ISN'T pertinent. How typical. The ICJ adjudicates on "contentious issues". These involve nations. All nations involved in that "contentious issue" must agree to accept its authority. I agree. But that is all quite irrelevent, because the ICJ did not adjudicate on a contentious issue. It was asked to give an "Advisory Opinion". Which is, of course, the OTHER major role of the ICJ. AO's can only be requested by certain organs of the UN. Nations can not request an AO, and their "permission" is neither necessary, sought, withheld, or given. Nations can not refuse to accept the ICJ's "authority" to give an AO. The ICJ can not profer an AO to a nation, even if asked, so it is not up to any nation to "reject" an AO. The UN can request an AO only on issues of International Law. The UN asked, the ICJ advised, and the UN accepted that advice. Basically, Paul, all you have done here is display ignorance.
