Sorry to shatter the dream, but America has never given two shits about democracy or freedom beyond our national borders. Weither it's our Latin American policy, our almost siding with Hitler, giving away half of Eastern Europe to the Soviets, Propping up African dictators with cash/weapons in exchange for minerals, Maifest Destiny, etc.....
We lost our innocence when we stopped listening to Jefferson and Washington about not moving beyond a pastoral, small, uninvolved nation. We wanted what the Brits had (Empire) and it'll eventually be our downfall.
