I apologise if this sounds a wee bit snippy but I think you need to read some history books to find out what the US and western friends were getting up to prior to Bush Jr's time in office. Here's a couple of suggestions:

Have a look for books on the US's covert (and slightly less covert) activities in Central and South America.

There's nothing new about that.

Nothing new here... more of the same since many decades. Check http://www.amazon.com/Overthrow-Americas-Century-Regime-Chan... and now Libya and Syria while ignoring the most likely more oppressive US ally Saudi Arabia.
