The U.S. has a long, horrible, cruel habit of violently overthrowing governments and abusively meddling in elections to manipulate their outcomes even if the U.S. militarily does not overthrow those governments violently.
I am appalled by the hypocrisy of Americans — a majority of ordinary people, along with politicians and the mainstream news media — who express moral outrage that Russia has meddled in the U.S.’s 2016 election. The U.S. has done this to other countries VERY OFTEN for many decades.
This article summarizes the U.S.’s violent overthrows of other nations. American politicians and news media and ordinary people do not call it military violence. They use the euphemism “regime change.”
