    Where did you "copy-paste" this from? You didn't give a link and I want to check the source.

    From another forum. If you wish, check each one with wikipedia or an encyclopedia. As ekrem already pointed out, the list is not flawless however it does reveal America's ironic quest of spreading freedom through the support of dictators and despots.

    I think you could cull the list a bit. I think some of those people that US didn't really give much a rat's arse about. There are a few it openly supports(ed) for sure...
