International law generally describes the customs relating to the relationships between and among "sovereign" entities -- what we usually call countries; and their property and actions of their citizens abroad. The customs having the most force are "treaties," which are formal agreements between and among sovereigns. Treaties among large numbers of countries involving many related provisions are often called "conventions." All treaties are examples of international law -- though they are only binding on their signtories. There are also "agreements," between governments that are not "treaties." Agreements are not law in the United States -- though Congress may pass other laws or government regulatory agencies may enact regulations that require compliance with them. For an agreement itself to become law, it must be a treaty, ratified by the US Congress.
Contrary to the ruminations of people who hate President Bush to the point they cannot think straight, only countries can violate treaties, not individuals. Not even G.W. Bush. There is no evidencve that G.W. Bush has violated any international treaty or law.
