Motley Fool Global Gains / GGM: Really Basic Questions

Are dividends from foreign companies (outside of the U.S.) taxed before they are paid to U.S. stockholders?
Do U.S. stockholders have to do anything to prevent double taxation on those dividends (foreign tax plus U.S. tax)?
Should I own foreign dividend stocks in my regular brokerage accounts and avoid owning them in my Roth IRA account?
In particular, I am concerned about BLX, COSWF, GDFZY, ITRN, NVS and PVD.
