Let see: you own stocks in a bunch of American companies.  These companies properties are confiscated and taken over without being paid fair price.

Taking over other people property outside of bankruptcy? It should only be when it is on sale and they agree to sell you for a price.

Out of habit. They were a Communist Latin American state, it's just what we do.

What would the CIA do with itself if it didn't have some trouble to cause in Latin America?

Were the Native Americans in state of bankruptcy when you took over their land?

These companies didn't calculate their risk profile correctly. That isn't a reason for us to kill and maim their citizens and destroy their country.

Somewhat yes, somewhat no. The plagues that the Europeans brought did empty out the land a lot, but there was a lot of conquest and genocide as well.

Lincoln, for example, murdered and expelled the Sioux out of Minnesota.

AFAIR the USA often confiscated the property of foreign companies.

I recently read that the economy of Venezuela is doing worse than that of Syria.

Come to think of it, the US confiscated Bayer's aspirin patent during WWI.
