"Colombia yesterday lost its battle to retain the Caribbean waters that surround the islands of the San Andrés archipelago following an unexpected ruling by International Court of Justice (ICJ) at the Hague.
The ICJ has handed Daniel Ortega's Nicaragua sovereignty over important fishing routes and maritime territory expected to be rich in oil and gas.
The archipelago, part of Colombia for over 200 years, has long been the victim of Nicaraguan aggression and 11 years ago the Pastrana government accepted the jurisdiction of the ICJ to mediate in the dispute."
Pres Santos should refuse to obey this decision. He should also be willing to use military force to keep the islands.
Moral of the story: Stay away from these international courts on matters of sovereignty.
