Sounds like fun, let's name all the dictators overthrown by their own 'country men'

I guess the U.S. would be an example of that correct ?
we deposed our 'long distance' king. We freakin' do things the right way :-)

Didn't some Russian Tsar get overthrown ?
did not the U.S. government help out in some way, (militarily?) during some Russian revolution?

Seems we helped China out at sometime pre WWII in battles against Japan.

Seems we've gone out of our way to help countries that come back to bite us in the !@#. We helped Iraq in the Iraq-Iran war, we helped Afghanistan in their fight against the Russians...

Sorry, got off on a tangent their.
