19. What does international law say about pursuing pirates & invaders?
Very early in this nation's history, the US felt free to pursue pirates right into the lands of foreign powers. I'm no international lawyer, but it seems there is plenty of precedent for saying to a foreign nation: "here are the miscreants who attacked our people, hiding inside your border, and if you won't help us root them out, then we insist you allow us to do so."
