20. Simple answer
> Why does that seem difficult for people to grasp?

Because things like that simply don't apply to the USA unless the USA
wants them to (i.e., unless it gives them an advantage). Any pretence
at wanting a "level playing field" is pure political bullshit.

cf., the "right" to "pre-emptive attacks" ... imagine the cry that
would go up if someone pre-emptively attacked America and caused the
loss of life on a scale that we've seen in Iraq ...

One law for the rich, another for the rest of the world.
