Been a while

The last thing I want, is for our prospective elected and appointed leaders to personally fear retribution from foreign powers for doing what they were elected to do.

One principle I developed a while ago, is that leaders elected and appointed democratically, should *only* be criminally behelden to the democracy which they served for things they do while in office. If the democracy isn't going to prosecute a leader, no foreign power has any business doing so.
This works both ways. A democracy can't abdicate that responsibility either.

This would not apply to non-democratic states, obviously.
