You need to brush up on some elementary history and current affairs. The US, a supporter of Myanmar? Of North Korea? Of Iran? It went to *war* with them.
You might as well blame the UK, half the nasty tinpot states are either ex-UK colonial possessions or the result of bad line-drawing in the departure phase (and we tried to end our empire *neatly*, god only knows what a mess we'd have made if we'd fallen apart unwillingly like most empires do).
