Letter: This day in history

Posted

If on June 27, 1986, "The International Court of Justice in the Hague ruled that the United States had broken international law and violated the sovereignty of Nicaragua by aiding the Contras.", should not its present actions in Syria (i.e. bombing government forces and positions, actually establishing a base within that country, and supplying multiple types of weaponry to various insurgent groups in its efforts to overthrow an legitimate government) garner similar or greater condemnation?

Where is the present day outrage?

What legal actions are in process?

Or is the US so far above international law, that no nation dare question its actions for fear of similar treatment?
