The US might have the more recent track record of "picking" on other countries but we've only been around for 300 years or so. We've been a super power for even less. Which means the US has had the ability to pick on other countries for less than 100 years. In the scheme of things it isn't very long at all. If you look at the history of world super powers, it isn't exactly a new thing either.

* afghanistan was being invaded by russia
* iran, who kidnapped americans was at war with iraq, also USA didnt know that saddam was crazy, after he gassed the kurds, did USA help him?
* france supplied iraq's nuclear reactor
*the middle east is littered with russian and european technology, only 2 countries get weps like M1a2, 1 country gets M1a1 etc
* vatican, before when its capital was in constantinople, it started the crusades.
* switzerland didnt need to fight, it just kept the money the nazi's stole of everyone in europe, and switzerland is the bank for every thief, criminal and dictator for a long time, why would they need to fight.

For better or for worse, the United States is the most aggressive, acting to uphold democracy and maintain "international stability".

Next in line would probably be Iran, with their funding of terrorist organizations, nuclear research, and aiding militia incursions into Iraq.

North Korea and China would be tossed up for third and/or fourth.

I'm amused at the vocabulary that you choose to use when describing the actions of US operations. People get beat up in war, that's very true. But there are organizations all over the world that commit atrocities that are just as bad or worst than the US but the focus stays squarely on the US.
When you say "picking on the weak" and similar things, you are focused on a macro sociological scheme of things. If you were to look at the micro sociological scale you would see that it happens every day. That includes internal state terrorism, such as intimidation (discouraging of the opposing positions to the government), and coerced conversion (the complete change of a national lifestyle by the government). If you look at things that way, who's to say that China or N. Korea just as aggressive as the US? If you were to look at the US government on a micro scale, the levels of internal state terrorism isn't nearly that bad.
