The US has had some staggeringly evil alies over the years. Which do you think is worst? Are there any of these alliances which are justifiable, either then or now? I'd say not myself - all reflected badly on the US, and did nothing to instill democratic values abroad. It's also interesting to note how many of these governments were favoured by Reagan - a man who seems to have been more than happy to be friends with any tinpot dictator.
