I could give you an equally vitriolic and accurate China rant if you'd like. There are a number of things they do that one can be legitimately irritated by. If there happens to be a dearth of negative China vs. Russia threads I can only assume its coincidence. They both deserve them equally. The US is another matter entirely though. We actually are a legitimately democratic country with extensive due process and rule of law, with respect for civil liberties and the ideal of national self-determination. We actually do champion human rights, not as part of a separate agenda, but as an agenda unto itself. We don't always live up to our rhetoric and there are times when we are indeed the thug and belligerent. But there is no mistaking that even under our worst leaders, those 'virtues' (civil liberties, human rights, democracy, etc) are treated as self-evident 'goods' to be pursued due to their own merits, even if we often sideline or ignore them in the pursuit of more selfish or even sinister interests. It may not make much different to the family in 3rd world nowhere that has a US bomb dropped on their head, but China barely knows what a human right is and Russia simply doesn't care. They do not see their role to be a positive influence on the world nor do they in any way attempt to pursue that. They are amoral at best. The US despite its many flaws genuinely believes itself to be a moral country and at times actively pushes for a more moral world even while often at the same time committing acts that are by any reasonable measure selfish, destructive, and/or immoral. I'm not trying to excuse our many flaws and crimes, but simply trying to distinguish us from countries like Russia and China who, quite frankly, just don't give a damn.
