Guatalamens unknowingly subject to medical experiments, years ago, for which the US government just apologied. Speaks perhaps to the context, the why of how the US can put a regime in power in such places that hires death sqads to kill its inhabitants, such as Pinochet, and numerous others.

The karmic result of this thing of america.....well.... some contend karma must only be personal intention and thusly personl result of such. Such be true certainly..... as with no self consideration, no self exists no karmic result hence arises.
I suppose if in general sense of karma, no karmic result as many do not specifically intend would be the claim.
I suspect a more general or broad interpretaion of karma as action may apply.
so I suspect negative result will eventually ensue. We will see perhaps which implication of karma is truly true and presents as fact is my opioion. Personal opinion it be. Intention strict intention in a conventional sense.....that seems not the total consideration of this thing in practical application.
As with american soldiers in Iraq, not intending to do bad things, result of bad things doing they certainly suffer. Mental illness destroyed family and all the rest, drugs, abuse, whatever.
No bad thing,not a single one, intended bad result regardless.
Always it seems is not a single bad result desired. Bad result to doer can nevertheless be always found of negative deed engaged. Regardless of intent. Conventionally considered this thing of karma.
The best place for discussion of current events. News about Buddhists and Buddhism is particularly welcome.
