Of course USA did some bad things in south america during cold war.
Mere bad things? Imposing brutal dictatorship against democracy, self-determination & nationalisation of industries is merely a small "bad thing"?
URSS was supporting brutal terrorist organizations all over the world, terrorist so bad that they even killed 30% of the population in cambodgia
USA supported the Kymer Rouge as the official Cambodian govt. Its was Communist Vietnam who destroyed the Kymer Rouge. The Kmyer Rouge who learned their Communism in Paris, France.

it is not disputed that the U.S. voted for the Khmer Rouge and the Coalition Government of Democratic Kampuchea (CGDK), which included the Khmer Rouge, to retain Cambodia's United Nations (UN) seat until 1982 and 1991, respectively. Furthermore, an investigation by the United States Department of State acknowledged that U.S. material support for the Khmer Rouge's CGDK partners indirectly benefited the Khmer Rouge.
something islamic terrorist never even came close to doing.
Islamic terrorism was created by the USA, going back to the Muslim Brotherhood supported by Einsenhower. You should know the US created Taliban & Al Qaeda to fight against the USSR.
At a White House meeting between the CIA’s director of plans, Frank Wisner, and John Foster Dulles, in September 1957, Eisenhower advised the agency, “We should do everything possible to stress the ‘holy war’ aspect,” according to a memo recorded by his staff secretary, Gen. Andrew J. Goodpaster.

USA is always supporting the good forces wherever it is involved.
Sounds like 'Holy War' or 'Crusades'.
Thích Quảng Đức (Vietnamese: [tʰǐc kʷâːŋ ɗɨ̌k] (About this sound listen); 1897—11 June 1963, born Lâm Văn Túc), was a Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk who burned himself to death at a busy Saigon road intersection on 11 June 1963. Quang Duc was protesting the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese government led by Ngô Đình Diệm.

It is treating it's allies 100 times better than Russia or China.
Russia just helped Syria clean out ISIS & Al Qaeda (Al Nusra).
It's always doing it's best to modernize their allies,
This is supposed to be a Buddhist forum but this seems to be endorsing the brutal violence of US backed dictators in the Americans, Indonesia, Iraq (gassing of Kurds with US supplied gas), etc. This seems to been supporting the Vietnam War.
something Russia or China can never do because they are dictatorships themselves.
Russia supported many countries that were not communist.
Any country that is democratic in this world, naturally becomes an ally of USA. USA and EU will always be the good guys in this world.
Sounds ridiculous. While Communism may not have made you happy, this does not mean the USA and EU will always be the good guys in this world. Communism arose in the world for a reason. Even during the 1900s, the working class lived in poverty in the USA.
The fact that USA is using a little too much realpolitik from time to time is no problem for me, since URSS and China are using 10 times worse realpolitik than USA.
It doesn't bother you that a supposedly democratic nation like the USA has made wars killing millions of people since WW2?
You are doing exactly what Russian propaganda wants you to do: Focus on the evils of USA and totally ignore the evils of Russia or China.
No. Not at all. I am not taking sides. Most of us here are Western people. Unlike you, who is still behaving like a Communist worshipping state & leader, I am posting as someone who believes in free speech, democracy, rule of law & Buddhism. In other words, I am posting as someone who believes as individuals in democratic nations we can change our govt foreign policies.
Tell me Dootdot, when was the last time you ever mentioned Rep. Moldova, Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan in one of your posts.
What about them? The Ukraine issue is not exactly one-sided.
When was the last time you mentioned Grozni ?
What about it?
You never mentioned the disgusting realpolitik and wars done by Russia, not even once. Show me a post of yours where you did if this is not true.
Irrelevant, as I posted. I am not concerned with "realpolitik". I don't even know what the word "realpolitik" means. If Russia & China kill people without any grounds, I think this is evil. But since I am Australian, with Middle-Eastern family, I notice when Australia (supporting the USA) makes war on the Middle-East, for no reason. In summary, unlike you, I hope I have not made any posts justifying killing & murder.
