comment When did husbands & wives start sharing bedrooms?
The whole question is taking on the presumption that some country the author is from is a whole world. I need not to support by references the fact of existence of the outer world. If you need them, it is the problem of your strange community. Look any document film about how usual people live in Africa, in China, in India, in Japan. Or better try to live at least a pair of years there. But the time spent in an european hotel can not be taken into account!

comment Has a foreign power ever sought to compel another country to abide by international law by means of that country's internal judiciary?
@ihtkwot I have read your arguments. They are very weak. Too many errors. I'll mention two of them. You have forgotten that states could make an agreement that the discussions connected to some questions could be solved in some foretold court of one of these states or of some third state. And it is used. Your second great fallacy is that you don't understand that the law system of USA is not the sole one in the world.

@ihtkwot Sorry, I do not agree. Never a country really participates in the process. It could be SAID that it is a country, but always it is a government or much more often it is some much smaller official structure. In USA they call it STATE, but in other countries different language could be used. But the sense remains the same. So, a process of some official structure of one country against another official structure of another country should be enough as an example. And if you do not agree that my example will be just the case, can you provide at least SOME arguments against it?

@ihtkwot It could be. And in 1/3 of cases it will be. But in another 1/3 cases it will be the dispute between American and French state structures. The last 1/3 covers three-side disputes.

@ihtkwot I thought I have this explained... Maybe that is the problem of my English... 1. Any state has a Customs law or a set of such. And all of them have some mutual Customs Treaties. 2. Let it be USA, if you wish. If the France Ministry of Defense is buying something from Lockheed, the goods are passing the USA customs. If there is some serious misunderstanding, it is solved according to the law by the court. Where is the problem?

1. The first meaning of the world state is "country". So, of course, I meant independent states. 2. Your comment does not contain any arguments against mine, so, it is irrelevant, let alone its being a fact.

@Lohoris Yes. These "barbaric" states took a honest world very seriously. I have read about cases when they went into beforehand lost battles in order not to give such word.
