This is another trend I see on TV Trope, 'Woodrow Wilson is to blame for everything.'
I wasn't aware other people were copying my idea; as far as I knew, I was the only one blaming Wilson, and I'm happy to do so. It takes a special kind of presidential failure to be directly or indirectly responsible for the rise of Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, and Ho Chi Minh.
Also I fail to see how Communist forces winning every conflict would have lead to there downfall.
Why was it our damn problem if the Russian Czar was overthrown?
Also, in regards to everything in the Cold War: HINDSIGHT IS 20/20. It's easy to take the high moral ground now and say we'd do something different, and to judge everyone as morally bankrupt at the time, but we weren't living then and we weren't the ones making the decisions. Granted, there's a lot of things that were tactically stupid, but they usually had no way of knowing that at the time. The wise thing to do is attempt to learn from it.
Virtually no one's employed hindsight in regards to the Cold War, though. Hell, virtually no one employed foresight. We've never tried the "let other countries sort their own shit out" approach as a default foreign policy, and we certainly have never considered addressing the underlying wealth disparities that lead to such ideologies as jihadism and communism
