Our foriegn policy is so nakedly hypocritical I am not sure it matters.
Obama wins an election rams through a policy that is unpopular with the majority loudly protested by a small minority and the line is "elections have consequences."
Egypt elects a leader (belonging to party we don't like) and before his elected term is up, the military is ousting him, but oh no "its a not coup" we are told; because it it was we would have to stop giving the Egyptian military foreign aide, which would leave us with no way funnel tax monies to the MIC so they can build tanks nobody actually wants or can use.
Ukraine, ditto, a lawfully elected leader there makes some unpopular decisions, (which might even be in the interest of his nation in terms of securing financial aide) and no its not "elections have consequences" its "he must step down".
(Not to say Morrsi and Yanakovich are good guys; and were not doing things to undermine the idea of a working republic themselves; but I stand by the notion that you can't have the precedent legitimate elected leaders can be removed ahead of time out side some previously codified legal process and get a working democracy/republic )
China gets to keep their most favored trade status no matter what human rights violations we think they are committing, no matter if the currency is being manipulated or not, etc.
The only "international law" that exists anymore amounts to: whatever is seen in the immediate short term interest of the sitting US Presidential Administration. Its been especially bad post Regan. At least back in the good ol'days of Regan and before when we wanted to illegally market goods on the international market or manipulate the politics of some foreign power the CIA or NSA had to do it in secret; and we made a show of at least pretending to take treaties seriously.
