5. You can't just go to another country

and shoot a bunch of people, then come home and act like nothing has happened.

Just replace "Syria" with the name of any other country and you'll see the sense of it.

This type of extraterritorial law pertains in other countries (I'm sure there are similar laws in European countries).

However, having said that I haven't heard of a case like this before. The nearest I can think of is John Walker Lindh but he was allegedly fighting against the US.
