comment Economic effects of the Cuban Revolution
@EmilioGort so in the picture you posted the man is holding up his ration card at a store where he can get the supplies he has been allocated. Is that correct?

revised How did Leonardo plan on moving his tank?
Leonardo was from Vinci in Tuscany, which is why he is Leonardo "from Vinci."

comment How were the borders of small European principalities maintained or secured?
this question is a bit broad as currently worded. can you focus it some? right now you are focused on territoriality, travel restrictions, and popular opinion.

comment Has a foreign power ever sought to compel another country to abide by international law by means of that country's internal judiciary?
fair enough, but the answer is still no. countries do not do that for the legal reasons laid out above. Well, let me be more precise. I know of no COMMON LAW countries that do that. I suppose CIVIL LAW countries may be different, but the principles of sovereignty are fairly uniform across civil and common law countries, and have been since the time of Grotius.

@LennartRegebro that doesn't change the analysis, or the answer. France has never sued the US in US courts to force the US to do something, etc.
