You are correct. What I am trying to say is the the Soviet Union was building itself up through hostile takeoevers. It was mostly in countries within its sphere of influence. The US did the same with supporting governments in S.America. The Soviets then tried to muck it up in S. America further aggravating the problem already. In the end it was still proxy battles. Look, I think we agree here. All I am saying is whats up with all the America hate when other countries have been pulling the same shit yet there is nary a whisper about it.
