I mean can you imagine this incident?

American invasion of Grenada in October 1983. Why? because they dared to run a socialist state

The U.S. began offering limited financial aid to Afghan dissidents through Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence, although the Carter administration rejected Pakistani requests to provide arms.
in 1979 President Jimmy Carter began covertly arming Afghan mujahideen in a program called Operation Cyclone. The start of the Taliban.

This program was greatly expanded under President Ronald Reagan as part of the Reagan Doctrine. As part of this doctrine, the CIA also supported:

The UNITA movement in Angola
The Solidarity movement in Poland
The Contra revolt in Nicaragua
The Khmer People's National Liberation Front in Cambodia

Under Reagan, the US sent troops to Lebanon during the Lebanese Civil War as part of a peace-keeping mission. The U.S. withdrew after 241 servicemen were killed in the Beirut barracks bombing.

In Operation Earnest Will, U.S. warships escorted reflagged Kuwaiti oil tankers to protect them from Iranian attacks during the Iran–Iraq War. The United States Navy launched Operation Praying Mantis in retaliation for the Iranian mining of the Persian Gulf during the war and the subsequent damage to an American warship.

What the hell business did the Yanks have in the Persian gulf.
