Colombia and Chile have prospered through dominance of their neighbors. That can't be a model because not everybody gets to dominate. Colombia forcibly united Panama, Ecuador, and Venezuela with Colombia in an attempt to center power in Bogotá. Chile landlocked Bolivia and has consistently denied Bolivia access to the sea in an attempt to dominate that country. Chile and Colombia have never been good citizens of their regions. I'm not surprised that their mindset is domination of their neighbors. In taking US aid for that purpose they are simply reasserting their colonial roles under the Spanish.
