I think I know what Ron would say.

In the US, murder is a crime under the jurisdiction of the states. In no way does the federal government have any business getting involved.

Outside the US, Americans killed should be avenged if possible by appealing to the pertinent nation's government, asking for extradition.

That's the way it always worked decades ago, and there's no reason I can see that we should depart from that constitutional stance.

EDIT: I think this may be a case when some RP-ers fall into the same trap the neocons do. They have a rationale for doing what they want to do, but fail to check and see if it's REALLY constitutional.
