The point is that the US launches lots of attacks on a lot of Countries - none of which have ever attacked the US Homeland.

Does that make the US a Rogue Terrorist State? I am sure US bombing raids, such as shock and awe, are terrifying....

That list looks to me like there was only one country capable of responding to Soviet communist expansion after the World War II. Sometimes that response was successful, sometimes unfortunately it was not.

USSR attacks against other nations since WWII:
Hungary 1956, Czechoslovakia 1968, China 1969, Afghanistan 1979-1989.

So a total of 4.

US attacks against other nations since WWII:
Korea and China 1950-53, Guatemala 1954, Indonesia 1958, Cuba 1959-1961, Guatemala 1960, Congo 1964, Laos 1964-73, Vietnam 1961-73, Cambodia 1969-70, Guatemala 1967-69, Grenada 1983, Lebanon 1983-84, Libya 1986, El Salvador 1980s, Nicaragua 1980s, Iran 1987, Panama 1989, Iraq 1991, Somalia 1993, Bosnia 1994, 1995, Sudan 1998, Afghanistan 1998, Yugoslavia 1999, Yemen 2002, Iraq 1991-2003, Iraq 2003-05, Afghanistan 2001-05

and maybe we can add Iran for 2008....

So a total of: 27 and possible +1 if Iran is attacked.

Soviet Attacks: 4

US attacks if we stop counting in 1991 when USSR fell: 18

The US practices State Terrorism.

Interesting how you include in the US list where the US acted through proxies (Cuba, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Indonesia, Congo, etc...) but not where the Soviets did the same (Cuba, Angola, Nicaragua, El Salvador, South Vietnam, South Korea, Grenada, Greece, etc....
