china didn't even fight in vietnam, they just supplied as far as i know. if i apply your logic concerning the u.s.-latinamerican relationship including the american tactics for decades down there, that means technically china hasn't done anything wrong whatsoever.
I didn't say America did nothing wrong whatsoever. But I don't see how it even compares to what China were doing.
anyways, the thing is that america policed the world continuously during the last century and, as you know, they NEVER refrained from adopting illegal methods in order to get the job done - which obviously includes massive violations of human rights. they've been active all across the globe while china hasn't gone to any country they couldn't have reached by bike. sure, china didn't ask its people if they wanted to be free in the western sense. but has america asked those countries that suffered during american attacks if they actually believed in the values america forced upon them? both countries had certain ideologies and because both have been "in the zone" beyond belief they failed to stick to moral values in the first place.
I don't see why you're limiting this human rights issue to foreign policy. For me this is a tiny part of it. What's more important is what you do with people once they are under your control. What have Americans done to their own people that compares to China? These invasions you speak of are nothing in comparison.
And you still haven't answered my question. Do you have any idea what was going on under Mao Zedong's regime?
this is going nowhere though. fact is: america has had its fair share of human rights violations. period.
Nothing compared to China.
