56. Yeah I'm sure "intention and purpose"
mean a whole hell of a lot to the victims of genocide.

I guess you like being an apologist for US support of nasty regimes.

Who the fuck said anything about atrocities being committed only under those regimes with US support?

My point was simply that the US shouldn't be backing such regimes that do commit human rights violations and genocide. You apparently believe such support is justifiable, as long as it furthers "our interests" (more likely corporate interests).

We were the good guys fighting the "evil commies" so any regime that was fighting the commies was OK, even if they were comprised of religious fanatics, or ruthless fascist dictators. Ah, and the Mujahadeen were freedom fighters...even better.
