Best United States Allies
The Top Ten
Great Britain is closer to the USA than any other country. There are strong military interactions and frequent trading. Israel can't amount to what Britain does.
Despite Britain having the revolutionary war against the Americans and Britain colonising East America, Americans culture grew out of British culture and Britain would back America up and America would back Britain up for any reason. We stand by Britain.
Their military may be a lot smaller than ours but better to fight with them than against them. I love the Brits can always to be counted on to fight like a pit bull in heat
Great Britain is great I think that they are one of the best countries in the world!
We trade with them the most, they are our biggest friend not just ally( there is a difference between friends and ally's. Being a friend means the governments like each other and they have a choice to back them up if they are attacked. But an ally means you HAVE to defend them if they are attacked.) they are also still our biggest ally. We get tons of resources from them and they get tons of resources from us. It's also our next door neighbor so we know we have a good alliance. MY FRIENDS WHO ARE READING THIS, HELP ME AND THE OTHER PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR CANADA BRING IT DOWN TO NUMBER 1! I rest my case-strange spider
Canada is definitely the US's #1 Ally... come on people. Longest undefended border, same culture, same language, same beliefs (mostly), and no one truly knows the difference when we travel, we could be one another. Why is that such a hard concept, Britain being #1 is a slap in the face of Canada who has always had the USA's back, unlike Britain who the US fought to be rid of.
How is this number 2 there are biggest trading partner we have always been friends but not always with #1
Canada & the US are more than allies they are brothers. Think of them as little brother and big brother. Like many families they sometimes disagree but make no mistake they are always on the same side and will always defend each other. The last country to threaten Canada was Spain over fish, the US and Britain warned the Spanish government a threat to Canada is a threat to them and Spain is a NATO ally. They each other's largest trading partner by far and they share not only the world's longest border but also the longest undefended border in world history.
Israel truly is our greatest ally.
This should be #1. We are protecting them from Iran and Iraq because we care!
Read the Bible. Our connection to Israel is bigger than any of this chatter.
We're only allies cause there's oil in the Middle East, once that goes away, bye bye
As a Japanese, We are Americans slave. We do anything they want.
Well basically, the USA forced it... but you forgive us right Japan?
We have great trade relations with them, as well as a good history of helping them recover their economy and rebuild their government post wwii
Yes Japan cause there best allies now and there helping usa Alote and usa is always standing with Japan and Japan stands with usa! Best allies forever!
I think South Korea can help us with the next war big or small
South Korea should be number 1 because even Barack Obama said it. " South Korea is one of US' greatest allies and closest friends." Plus US has a weapons base in South Korea.
ROK-US alliance is the most successful example of partnership and collaboration between countries in modern-day history. Based on solid foundation of mutual trust and integrity, the alliance will maintain its position as the vanguard of safeguarding the liberal order in Asia.
South Korea is probably the friendliest nation to America. Americans working over there get paid more than Korean citizens in most cases.
They have been on our side in every single major war worth fighting and, like a great friend, pleaded with us not to make the catastrophic mistake we made in Iraq. They would have saved countless lives had we listened to them. I might even put them at #1.
France has been America's first true ally from the start. They are the reason why America became America.
They are our first - without the French the United States would not exist.
We would be speaking with a British accent without them and they would be speaking German without us. Best ally, no contest.
I honestly think that Australia as well as Israel are the best allies of the US of A, but the thing is the EU and Israel are puppets of the US of A but Australia for the most part is not controlled too much although they are controlled a tiny bit, So I think Australia is the only ally that the US of A has. And I think we should all know as Americans those europoors will try and betray us and just get beaten the heck out of by Russia (assuming they did not go commie/soviet mode again) the US of A, And Australia. The UK is also a good ally of the US of A. Well jeez, that took a bit!
Australia is the only nation to be there for the US in all conflicts since WWI.
Australia is the most reliable ally the US has bar none.
Of all the nations today, it seems that Australia is most similar to the United States. Ask yourself--today, could the US and Australia have serious conflict between eachother? No. For what? We might say the same for Canada, but they are too French. Also Canada often insults America to build national identity. Australia and America are both more conservative.
We support eachother militarily in every war. We share the frontier culture of the New World. We share a language, we attend eachother's universities, and we trade freely. It's an alliance that will last.
Australia is the only nation to send forces every time it has been requested to do so. Korea, Vietnam, Gulf war of 91, Gulf war II. The only real issue with Australia is its tiny military. It should have a regular army of 100,000+ but instead has less than 30,000. Force integration is seamless and its soldiers are well trained. Its special forces are second to none.
Israel has never fought along side US troops, neither has Japanese forces.
Australia is the most reliable ally the US has had in the past 75 years.
"The Germans are good people, and is the United States most trusted ally, I love all the Germans. They have a strong military and will help us if we need them, vote for Germany.
What were originally enemies, Germany and the US now kick ass together!
I think Germany is great and although I don't like Hitler I think they deserve to be higher up on this list.
No. Don"t even think about it. Germany helped America's enemy back in the American Revolution. And think about World War I and World War II!
Uh. Sorry to burst your bubble but Pakistan has a better relationship with America than India.
Although we Indians are part of BRIC, in a war, we are much more likely to side with USA instead of China.
India and USA besides being the largest and second largest democracies, have a lot of potential to complement each other. USA needs India for the SouthAsian politics to counter China and India needs USA for various reasons.
Let me start out by saying thank you for mostlikly allaying with The U.S. more then China or Russia which to be honest only wish to over take the U.S. So ya, I see relations with the u.s. and India as a positive ally.
Spain is the corrupt Country in the world, Almost lose of Democracy, United state Never want to join in any activity of Spain, they blame themselves to be a worst exist People in the World, Were many trader are not alike to bought Tequila, Chorizo, With the news of food Poisoning. as A part of Spain people I don't want to recognize me as Allies of USA, or else I will put myself to the blame.
Yes, Spain has embarrassed me in several occasions. But I will always love our patriotism and how we keep our culture alive. We have that in common. Economically we might not be at our best, but we are still important and we can both fight terror and lack of culture. We also have great rellations with NASA. Plus our military is still really strong
My family immigrated to the US from Spain 2 generations ago. My great Uncle and his wife are still alive to talk about living in Spain but for the most part I consider my self an american now, I've learned Spanish from my mom and through school. and I've been lucky enough to travel all over the world partly through the make a wish foundation and my family has also lived all over the globe for a number of years like Korea Thailand and Belgium, I especially go back to Spain too, sometimes just with my brother. I've met all kinds of people including brits,italians,greeks,turkish and isreali but I've got to say the Spanish people, especially the Asturian are the most hospitable, patriotic and well meaning individuals I've ever met. they might also have the best sense of humor. Of course this is all my opinion but it makes me sad this isn't higher on the list, I say number 3 or 4 at least.
No they did not cause the Spanish American war we did ourselves. I'm sorry that the u.s. basically destroyed an entire empire all because of false resigning of what happened to the uss main the battle ship. Yes they may not have a good or great Gov, but they are apart of NATO the most powerful alliance in the world and I hope they can get thire gov and country back together as they did when they ounce ruled a world empire.
This isn't a country... it's a country that makes up part of the United Kingdom. Same goes for Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, and the UK's overseas territories.
They are not a country is it?
On this list are you going by England, Great Britain, or United Kingdom. I see that Great Britain is already #1 - westofohio
Why is England 32nd place?
An old and faithful allied of US, Norway was a co-founder of NATO and has upheld its close ties to US through the years.
Norway is one of the closest allies of US, cooperating heavily in the barentssea/ svalbard. Radar installasions and forces patrulling near the russian border to deterr any russian aggression.
Yes indeed a African nations that actually isn't consumed by war. And provides a foothold on the continent.
They help each other out with several things, even though SA is part of BRICS, but the only two countries in BRICS that are really enemies would be China and Russia.
This is one of America's greatest allies. They support each other. America helped with Ebola and South Africa's terrorist group Boko Haram. Every country is allies with America only until if they choose to hurt, offend, or threaten it's people! Can't we all just have peace? I'm called a terrorist because I"m from Yemen. *Wink-wink* Yemen is helping America and gives America support, oil, and a fine friendship. I every country and yes, even the poorest, harmful, and deadliest country because unless you've experienced living there and talking to the people. My best friends is from Serbia, Ireland, Puerto Rico, and Germany. We get along so fine better than the other friends who have the same culture, religion, and language. We learn so much better and life is good that way!
Kiwis are good.
The only country to be with us on every war.
The good old kiwis
Cool place to go if your adventurous
The Philippine is colonized by the American since 1943 to 1946, there's no such things stronger allies in the Asia Pacific Region rather than Neighboring Country, Filipino people also Adapt the language as Medium of Communication in School, Business, International Market, And so on.
They share a strong and positive accord as dose the Australia they are both crustal Ally's in the Asian pacific.
The Philippines has the highest approval rating of Americans at 92%, better than Britain (90%) or Canada (88%)
America has a ton of babies, but Philippines is one of its closest and most be-friended babies. And they have a good bond with each other
Indeed the Polish people are very democratic now and are in a critical part of Europe.
Poland helped the United States during the first Persian Gulf War and in the following Iraq War. The United States helped to expand NATO to Poland, and has deployed the American millitary to Poland to protect it from fascist Russian aggression.
Poland is the top US ally today. They actually pay their share for defense.
They belong in the top 10. By the way the French hate us.
Mexico does not like us anymore because of Donald Trump
The problem with Mexico. Is Germany almost convinced them. To attack us in World War 1
Mexico is a strong ally to the United States just remember they helped defeat the Nazis, great Britain, Japan. So yes they deserve to be a good ally
Mexico is the High Trader of the Drug Cartel in the World, Since the USA banned their people to get there. as Abusive Human Rights and playing ground of torture, In Aesthetic tradition of Culture, where you can find Different shaman, that you will never expect most of them visible traders of drugs, When El chapo Arrested as A most wanted Drug lord in the world, you can think that we really people of Mexico is low level class would never be a part of Strong allies in the world.
Morocco was the first country to recognize America's independence so it should be higher up in the ranking
That is it. There neutral because they only have been in 3 wars in there history 1 war each 100 years no honed they do not matter
Formal U.S. relations with Morocco began in 1787 when the United States Senate ratified a Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the two nations which had been negotiated in 1786.[Renegotiated in 1836, the treaty is still in force, constituting the longest unbroken treaty relationship in U.S. history, and Tangier is home to the oldest U.S. diplomatic property in the world.
Africa’s best place!
The only reason why are still in contact with Pakistan is because of the Cold War since India sided with the soviets
To correct the above statement, India did not side with the Soviet Union during the Cold War they were co-founders of the non affiliated states
Pakistan Is an enemy... - MegadethFan07
Pakistan helped the U.S. defeat the Soviet Union in 1979 with Operation Cyclone. Completed many non-NATO missions including saving 4 US hostages embassy members from Somalian pirates. Pakistan also helped the U.S. in Operation Gothic Serpent along with Italy, Malaysia, and South Korea to defeat the SNA. Pakistan also has a very large volume of trade with the US. Although there are many disputes and is a two-faced country, there has been some benefit that resulted satisfactory and continues to be a key member as non-Nato member, a title that a few hold.
I'm American, and I can definitely say this is not accurate..at all...america and Russia are still very much enemies.
I'm not sure about this one. I mean, there was the cold war... I wouldn't say we are allies, it's more like we are tolerant of each other. I mean, NATO was created specifically to counter Russian communism and especially Russian military power, which is still feared today. I think we are neutral rather than allies.
I believe the US and Russia are very respectful to each other, though the ally thing can be questionable at times, I believe if a war broke out, the US would help Russia, and counterintuitive and so forth.
US and USSR will never be allies...should have let Patton kick them back into Russia.
China is a enemy
China is considered a threat to us now. They may have been our good allies in World War 2, but ever since, they've been very shady
This is not the China that we assisted in World War 2. The Nationalist China is the one we assisted.
We work together as trading partners
Why are they so low? They've helped us in quite a few wars and Brits consider us family. Strange.
Pick a name! You can put all 3 on here. Come on! England and Great Britain are already on this list - westofohio
They have reason to help us even after all those years ago when we broke away from them. They are our 2nd greatest ally.
The U.S. and UK have a special relationship.
One of the founding members of the most powerful alliance in the world NATO so they too are a crystal major ally of The United States.
Even though their military force is small, I believe that from their experience in the world wars, that they can be useful. Also I like pizza
I hope as an Italian that Italy will establish closer ties with Russia.
Make Roman Empire Great Again!
Its good as an ally
Not theiI can see since Najib took over as a President, he more to US on behind..But on our eyes(media) we just on the middle between China or Russia.
Scotland is scotland and I think there doing just fine.
Our inventions helped change the world
Yes and no Ireland is a great ally and we have made many agreements with it's improving relations with Great Britain.
Best ally of the usa.
BEST COUNTRY LOVE YA MA
The Netherlands is a great and good country and I for one think this country is a grand allie
Good place I have friends there
This a good country
These guys are awesome I’m 52% Dutch and America has no better ally
Yes we have cooperated with Saudi Arabia but almost everyone involved with 9/11 was a Saudi.
Duh,don't forget about 9/11!
Let's see...Sunni-led Saudi Arabia or Shia-led Iran. We are with the Saudis on this one and they have been our ally for a long time.
One of the best and powerful ally of USA, regarding its operations in the middle east.
Still one of the best allies. They have a good military. Turkey would be very effective if going against Russia.
The like number 4
Turkey is a powerhouse in the middle East and their high tech army and nationalism of their country acts as a superforce
Yes Albania is a critical area the Balkens which proves a gateway to the Middle East.
Must not be ally, but Brazil has been a strong partner of USA historically (although sometimes the relations between them are not so strong, but it still keep solid).
Brazil the country that provides a good ally in the South American content.
Bolsonaro brings union to USA people
It's not Dutch. It's the Danish.
Very nice ally
Dutch have been our side throughout our history
Denmark is supposedly our closest Scandinavian ally.
Taiwan is the REAL China. They are the China that would have made mainland China into the same country as modern day South Korea or Japan. Maybe one day the nationalists will take over mainland evil Communist China.
Taiwan needs to be recognized by all NATO and Russia.
We sell and provide help from aggression from China.
Greece loves USA, and helped USA in many things. USA also helped in many things.
Greece have been allies during WWII, As well as the Cold War (Well now Russia and Greece are Great allies together) but ever since the Economic Crisis, Many Greeks have thought that US Allies are against Greeks, so now the Greek people believe that Germany and us and their allies are trying to destroy Greece
I guess but since of the social unrest of the population and a huge dept crisis and no NATO member is baling them out it seems they trust is like they did before.
Love Croatia from USA
One of our ally in the Baltics.
Also a good ally in the Balkens since we supported the push for communism out of the region none of the other Balkens states aren't to friendly with the US.
Croatian troops have been in Afghanistan for over 11 years straight. Americans have very short memory...Serbia hates US and Croatia (and is a pawn in Putins game ((look at a military base they are building outside Nis)), Bosnia is full of non Arab looking Muslims ( you know the ones that look like you and me((blonde,green eyes, white skin)),who would love to blow themselves in the middle of times square,or Albanians,and who is on the first line of defense...Croatia...(((did you know that Republic of Ragusa was first independent nation to recognize USA as a country
Although Lithuania is weak, but Lithuania is most pro-American country in Europe.
I'm from Lithuania and for me and all my nation USA is Always NUMBER 1
Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania all support us.
I'm Lithuanian I love UNITED STATES
Czechs felt terrible after the allies left them in WW2 for the Nazis.But the A Stabley Schmidt of eastern Europe from the Soviet union made Czech Republic one of the greatest allies of the United States of America
Since the fall of the Soviet Union we stand by Czechian and Slovkian brothers.
Argentina one out of the 2 allies in sa besides brazil it is the only Allie
Argentina stong allie
Moderate. 4th largest in the world. Leader of ASEAN. Improved democracy. Little history of terrorism. Good track record of counter terrorism efforts. Resourceful.
Indonesia must be top 15 US allies
Nigeria is a British colony and also the 5th largest English speaking country in the world. It shares similar values with the US in so many way; like our democracy is built after the American system of government. Nigeria also plays a vital role in the stability of its region having maintain peace in Liberia, Sierra Leone and recently Gambia. There's a strong historical ties between Nigeria and the US.
Nigeria should be a ally of the Us because we both have huge trading relations and the Us is a key partner to trade with. We also have been long allies ever since and help each other! So I think Nigeria should be an ally with Us.
UAE needs good strong Allies!
Best country in the world
Really an island ally it's scatted islands in the pacific that provide no sense of gain.
The true special relationship
They shouldn't be one of our allies because their part commiisim.
Morroco is not a allie
Good allie and 1 of 4 allies in afirca the nly besides south afirca and Nigeria in afirca and morroco
Is Ukraine an allie?
Actually yes the western part part that's why Russia has claimed parts of the eastern part.
Is Ukraine our allie?
A Good Friend They have great tech so good
Yes indeed with various US companies based out of Singapore along with being East Asia a area that we have been trying to fix.
Southeast Asia is a good or bad situation for a country. Singapore was a success story.
But you have extremely low standards for countries like Laos and Vietnam
Strong relationship with the usa
