Well, yes, I would say that. While some would disagree, I feel that the United States has better intentions than alternatives like China or Russia. So a world in which the United States is powerful is better than a world in which China is powerful or Russia is powerful. And not just for Americans but for people in other countries as well.

So, to be blunt, if a country is going to be ruled by a brutal regime then the world's usually a better place if it's a brutal regime that supports the United States than a brutal regime that opposes the United States.
