Seems to me however that US law looks to extend its power beyong its frontiers for what strikes me as trivial reasons.
I wasn't familar with the case till you mentioned it. Did this gent violate US laws or international trade sanctions?

To be clear, it's not simply the US that reaches beyond its borders. The UK govt has inferred it plans on blocking Argentina receiving replacement fighter aircraft from other countries if the jet has British content in it. The Brits likely will ask the US to do the same.
