What's the legal (according to international law) response to a guerilla army that takes refuge in a neighboring country? The US did this with the Contra bases on Honduras, and I don't think the Nicaraguans invaded Honduras in response, but maybe they should have?

The legal issues look pretty involved, but Nicaragua did what a law-abiding nation should do in such a circumstance: go to the ICJ.
