    Churchill was pretty bad.

    25,000 + civilians killed in Dresden Firebombing by his crew.

    Personally a God Father of the Cold War in Potsdam, and Yalta Conferences, which inflicted a lot of death, and misery.

    Presumably was involved in the 3 million Indians who died in the Bengali Famine of 1943, which is thought to have happened due to Britain stealing India's resources, particularly for the War Effort.

    Yes, Carter with his SoS Christopher. He was obsessed with getting it done, and did so, with not a single casualty. And when the hostages finally took off from Teheran they stopped in what was then West Germany, where Carter was there to meet them. The point being, they did it without firing a shot.

    Brute force can get a lot done, but at considerable cost. Getting it done without force -- and ergo without a cost of human life-- takes finesse. Finesse however doesn't make Lockheed Martin any money, so he had to go.

    Sure won't. But I don't think that was the first regime change attempt. First one in Iran perhaps, but Latin America for one has been an incessant target, and Woodrow Wilson, who was no stranger to Latin American meddling, still had forces in Russia back in 1920.
