Best Answer

The US sought to prop up friendly governments that supported US policy interests. The US and USSR each sought pawns in a game of international chess.

You could equate US- Iranian Relations against USSR-Syrian/Egyptian relations.

Likewise in Latin America, the US (through the CIA) was supporting the Contras in Nicaragua whom were fighting against communists.

The US would support strong leaders as long as they 1) were anti-communist 2) pledged allegiance to the US. (look up Noriega in Panama)
