Searching for the Holy Grail of Fail? U.S. foreign policy’s got you covered. Here are five U.S.-backed regimes that failed so hard, they totally won.

When the U.S. orchestrated the overthrow of socialist Salvador Allende to put a stop to—among other things—torture of Chileans and widespread human-rights abuses, who would’ve thought it would lead to 17 years of state-sanctioned torture and brutal oppression at the hands of dictator Augusto Pinochet? This U.S. foreign policy decision was so much FAIL, it was awesome.

2. Right-Wing Junta – El Salvador
