Nations, including the U.S., decided that it was better for there to be a balance of power in the Mideast; that meant that no country there should take over the other countries, because it is better to deal with several little tin-horn dictators, than to deal with one large tyrannical power in the region.
Why did the US encourage Saddam to fight against Iran?
Why does the colonial empire breakup large nations?
Why do you support the nation of Israel, the most tyranical weaponised nation in the ME?
No, there isn’t always a “collective responsibility and accountability”, here it depends on which party is in charge. I even hate the word “Collective”, in that it usually refers to a cluster-suck of mentally goose-stepping socialists, not free thinking and rational legislators. The “collective” is tribal thinking.
If that is so, why did your nation insist that any reparations were due from the German people?
You demand it from others, but claim the moral high ground when it comes to yourself

You talk about “Hedging your bets”, well you seem to place America into a position of damned if we do, and damned if we don’t. If we work with the dictators, then you accuse us of “support for Saddam or Hitler; but if we don’t then we are the aggressors that provoke those dictators.
Neither Hitler nor Saddam provoked the USA
Both knew the peril of such an action
