From prior posts on this thread:

You: That is because what is currently termed "rogue nation" has a precise connotation: a nation that would assist terrorists is a rogue nation;

Me: We assisted and trained the Taliban and Bin Laden not to mention the KLA.

My point was that your above definition of a rogue nation could be applied to the United States given the fact that we assisted, armed and trained the Taliban, Bin Laden and the KLA. I can understand the thinking in assisting the fighters in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union, although now it has come back to haunt us, but our association with the KLA and the attack on Serbia is a national disgrace and war crime.

Close, but not quite a crime as we were ostensibly helping the Kosovar minority that was oppressed by the Serbs. Criminally, we get off on a technicality. It is a disgrace because we did more harm than good in an area unrelated to our national interest.
