Life is mostly froth and bubble, but two things stand like stone. Kindness in anothers trouble, and .courage in your own. Annon.

Just to add a VERY important point to your discussion, as well as correcting a common mistake.

US had a positive attitude towards China near the end of the cold war, and was in fact fully commited to making China an Ally.
For example,
US Helped China in military technology developments in the 1980s. This eventually resulted in the JF-17, but the American aid was cut short in 1989(Guess what happened?).

There are numerous other similar cases during the same time period, proving the fact that the Sino-US relations we have today was resulted largely by the actions of the CCP.

Now to correct the mistake, while it is common for US to topple dictatorships and build up democracies, it is also evident that US also installs dictatorships where she sees fit.

Egypt for example was headed by a seriously Islamic government that wants nothing more but to continuously harrass the Israelis while ruling under Sharia.
The US backed dictator Mubarak took power, and more than 2 decades of peace, and relative Liberalism. Tourism returned to normal, economy somewhat stabilized. Egypt entered the coalition during the Gulf War, as well as denied Iran the privilage of passing through the Suez Canal.

I agree with the fact that US had to make plenty of hard decisions in letting a handful of oppressive dictators under her wings.
