Obviously purely hypothetical but what would we do with the American ambassador in london if the US launched a nuclear strike against us? Would we have to let him go?
It would be against the law to detain him because he had not personally done anything wrong. You can't hold an individual personally responsible for the actions of a country (that is unless they are a leader).

Well my dad is diplomat, so basically I have a diplomatic immunity too..
But these Japanese are so strick, and they treat us as common foreigners so there's hardly no difference between having or not having this immunity : )

The position of diplomatic and consular personnel regularly accredited in a host country is regulated by the Vienna Conventions on diplomatic relations !1961)http://www.un.org/law/ilc/texts/diplomat.htm and on consular relations (1963)http://www.un.org/law/ilc/texts/consul.htm.

Basically, persons having diplomatic status cannot be prosecuted in the host country where they are accredited; they can however be declared "persona non grata" and expelled.

During WWII however quite a few diplomats were interned in their host country. .
