You provided a good explanation of why, if you were writing a
license, you might use US-specific language.

But you haven't given a good reason why the FSF, when drafting a
license to be used globally, should make it US-specific.

You have won Rahul!!!

You have totally stumped me. I can't give a good reason for a global
FSF license  -- the idea of a globally enforceable copyright license
does not intersect with the reality I live -- but you and the FSF
can keeping trying Rahul . . . there are 195 sovereign jurisdictions
in the world, so do your best.
