I do not want the US to continue in this world police effort that the GOP seems to keep pushing.

It says foreign*based*.
We mainly act within US jurisdiction but extradition of wanted criminals is an option. If the foreign country doesn't extradite, we could impose sanctions and generally use political pressure and/or diplomatic channels.

I’m assuming it’s like the mafia with ties to Italy or the Russian mob with ties to Moscow. If they come to the US, they work to dismantle the network. Not sure how that would work. Interpol would have to be involved and many countries have corrupt politicians.

He is simply using money already budgeted for assisting people who are the worlds most forgotten. The Sex Slaves , And the Drug Addicts. I think it’s money well spent when it is used for freeing desperate people.

👍. We need dollars going to fight international crime and terror, instead of spending it on small fry back home.
