German judges still decide based on German laws.

E.g. it might be legal in the USA to preppare a war of aggression, but
in Germany the preparation alone will bring you into prison for at least

The USA might have influence on changes in the laws of other countries,
but there will never be an 1:1 mapping between the laws.
