It is amazing how accepting the public has become of the notion that we as a country can violate a nation's sovereignty anytime we want in order to kill its citizens, but also how accepting we are as a country to our fellow citizens being killed on the say-so of one man who ultimately acts as judge, jury and executioner.
...is ridiculous. Most of these countries cooperate with the U.S. There is also the AUMF, similiarly a law dating back to Clinton's Presidency. And the President has always had the authority to act in defense of the country's national security, even with a Constitutional lead time to justify committing troops to war.
