The War of Law

To what extent do rules govern international politics?

Kyl, J., Feith, D. J., & Fonte, J. (2013, June 17). The War of Law. Foreign Affairs. Retrieved from http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/139459/jon-kyl-douglas-j-feith-and-john-fonte/the-war-of-law. (PDF here). 

In their 2013 article, Kyl, Feith, and Fonte outline a case that currents examples of international law undermine the sovereign power of the United States. I'll leave it up to you to determine the veracity and the accuracy of their argument. However,  the authors do make a compelling case that state sovereignty remains an important topic in global politics.  

Please feel free to read the article, create a Google Document and tell me what you think of Kyl et. al. position. I will provide feedback to everyone who shares their work with me. Thanks.
