Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
3:16 GMT - Russia considers bringing the killing of peacekeepers to the international court - Foreign Ministry.

13:03 GMT - Tbilisi may ask the West for military aid - head of Georgia's national security council.

There is no logic to depend on it nowadays...
International court is USA/EU court...in them again Tbilisi put hope of intervention against Russia...

You have the wrong impression of the ICC. The USA (the Republicans at least) has been very hostile towards it.

In fact, Serbia is trying to challenge Kosovo's declaration of independence in the World Court (not the ICC, but it's not clear which one the original message in this thread referred to), while the West is opposed.

Thanks for the link.

There are too many international courts in The Hague ;-)

International Criminal Court (since 2002)
International Court of Justice (World Court) (since 1946)
International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (since 1993)

Plus the appeals chamber for the Rwanda court.

All of these courts are distinct, which may cause confusion.
