    Rwanda's genocide went on without U.S. intervention and Reagan's administration illegally supported the Contras, whom were rapists and child killers (sometimes by swinging them by their ankles so they could smash their heads on rocks).

    That's nothing compared to Saddam, but okay.

    BTW, no one's acting like America always does right.

    It's not like there were good guys. World history is full of such things, so what?

    Would you like a list of other heads of state who have done much the same or worse whose countries we never invaded?

    For your next feat will you explain why with actual historical context, political and other limitations and geopolitical priorities?

    Or will "does not doing everything all the time" prove the US is evil.

    Wholesale rape and murder of women and children is wholesale rape and murder of women and children. Or is there a distinction that you're trying to draw here?
