the brezhnev-doctrine was one of "peacefull coexistance" while increasing the Soviet sphere of influence, exactly the same philosophy as the US, only the US was much more powerfull and had more resources at its disposal. This soviet sphere of influence was extending to countries such as afghanistan and Vietnam, not exactly a big threath to the West and not exactly a big backdraw for those peoples who came from medieval societies, and for this "crime" alone you supported the worst most inhuman terrorists on earth and killed millions of innocent vietnamese. The communists won in Vietnam and lost in afghanistan, you can compare for yourself how those countries evolved ever since...Commies weren't a threat??? What planet are you from??? Have you heard of the Brezhnev Doctine? Have you heard of KGB interrogations? Have you heard of gulag?
I personally know people who done hard time in Russia for the crime of studying Hebrew. That doesn't sound like a threat to you? Are you sure you ever lived in Russia? Or is that you still maintain you membership in the Russian Communist Party?
All the other facts you mention are internal affairs that weren't a threat for us, also in the US some nasty things happened during the cold war, btw remember the Rosenberg trial, if anything similar would have happened in France you would still be screaming about "anti-semitic French who killed innocent Jews"...
btw, being locked up for studiing Hebrew? perhaps in the stalin-period it would have been possible, but not later, there were active synagogues in most Russian cities.
the US presented the communists as the great evil while supporting Osama Bin Laden, Pinochet and all kind of other dictators and scum.
Nowadays Russians, even non-communists, are still angry for this, and some even think the us has its hand in Tchechen separatism, which always received a warm wellcome in the West and especially in Western ally Turkey... Altough the communist regimes were all but perfect, many eastern Europeans and Russians now recret the demise of the soviet-Union and communism. The recent terrorist attacks for example have given way to a new wave of nostalgia in Russia and especially in North-Ossetia, nostalgia to much better times, with people waving red flags on the anti-terrorist gatherings today.
