I think most dangers from countries stem from fear and insecurity, so this is a fair point.
Any individual, organization, business, country, or other entity that isn't able to be reigned in by a set of enforceable rules has the potential to be dangerous and harmful, especially if they have a lot of power. The US government can be reigned in by its electorate, though this has limits, including Americans actually caring about what they do to people in foreign countries or even being aware of it. Far from perfect, but these are more checks on power than a dictatorship. Donald Trump and Bush Sr were elected out of office, for instance, and actions during the Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars etc faced a lot of domestic pressure over poor and inhumane actions by government.
The US can also be reigned in a bit by pressure from allies, some pressure from adversaries, international norms and laws etc. But there's still many gaps where the US can still get away with literal murder, like any other country. In terms of rule of law, there is no system in place to fully keep a check on US actions overseas, and have tried to skirt domestic laws by torturing people on foreign soil (rendition, gitmo etc). This is true of all countries however.
The US neocons pushed the limits of US arrogance for international control and the extremes they would go to achieve their goals.
So the question is what is the most peaceful way to set up the world order, and how do you create and maintain this?
