Abstract:     
Discusses questions about U.S. policy raised by the proceedings of the Nicaragua case. Was the United States within the exercise of its “inherent right of self defense”? Was the matter a political question for resolution by the Security Council and not suitable for adjudication by the International Court of Justice?
