Ideologically, the Soviet Union used to find a ready and receptive audience in Asia in the great postwar crusade against imperialism and racialism. The passing of the era of decolonisation found nationalistic sentiment in Asia offended more by Soviet actions in Afghanistan and Indochina than by American behaviour in far-away places elsewhere in the world. Culturally, the Soviets proved themselves to be no more sensitive to Asian sensibilities than the Americans. Diplomatically, where the US was frequently well-meaning but intrusive in a bumbling sort of way, the USSR has often been heavy-handed and manipulative.
