Meanwhile the USA is "good buddies" with more repressive regimes in places like Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Egypt, not to mention the ones the USA itself imposed such as former regimes in Iran and Chile.

Rob, I wish you wouldn't lump Israel in as a just another "repressive" regime. The place is reasonably democratic compared to its neighbors and considering the existential threats it faces daily; and has a free press, courts uncontrolled by the government, treats women, gays and minorities on a level similar to most Western democracies, and has been attempting to negotiate a 2 state solution with the people in the Palestinian territories.
