Kosovo and the Irrelevance of International Law (2)

Lest you think it's only cynical me who's noticing the irrelevance of international law for the story of Kosovo this week, here's a blast from the other side of the aisle. One Ilana Bat-El bemoans the fact that Putin's Russia is the only remaining stalwart of international law; everybody else has forgotten the law in their rush to embrace the Kosovars.

(By her name, this Bat-El person whom I've never heard of has to be Israeli, tho her bio alludes to the fact only very obliquely. She lives, most appropriately, in Brussels).
