Best United States Allies
Definitely closest ally but can we Americans stop incorrectly stating that they helped us during WW2.
Britain was fighting the war years before we joined the fight even after all of Europe surrendered without a fight.
Without Britain (and pockets of support from some countries), Europe would've been lost well before we even were involved.
France had by far the largest army at the time but didn't bother putting up a fight (though they played a major role in the evacuation of Dunkirk).
The French navy at one stage were supporting the Germans were beaten by the Brits, but rather than offering gratitude for being liberated and sailing their ships to an UK port decided to sink their own ships.
I vote this, not because of Britain, but because of America. As a British citizen, I have to say that America is a great country as a whole. There are arrogant and ignorant people there, but EVERY country has them. America may seem to have the most arrogant and ignorant people in the world, but that's mostly due to it's huge population.
As I already mentioned in the paragraph above, it's a great overall country. And I hope that the riots on the streets will soon stop and everyone there becomes peaceful again.
After rebuilding a country a couple times, the U.K. remains as what if America had a monarchy, the diversification of the U.K. will bring it closer with the U.S.
The Uk is and most likely will be a close ally until the end of times. I wish I could place Ireland as a tie with the UK as most of us on the east coast have strong ties or at least blood bonds with Ireland. Unfortunately Ireland has strict nutrality even durring our world struggles. I would like to see Ireland forgive the past and stand shoulder to shoulder with the countries who love Ireland and want to see her stand beside and with us. I thank our very close friends France, New Zealand, UK, Canada Ireland, Australia, South Korea, Norway and so many others that stand for democracy. Again, this is a post for UK as our number 1 ally. As a veteran I would fight to and through the gates of hell with any soldier of the Uk. They are tough and stay the fight. A great people they are.
No doubt that the US of A and Canada are best of friends. With their shared cultural heritage, the relationship between the two countries are like that of brothers. They speak the same language, they understand each other and generally support each other in international politics. The relationship between the two is one of the most stable and mutually beneficial in the world. And Canada has consistently been American's favourite country.
My parents are divorced and my mom lives in the US while my dad lives in Canada, and Canada and USA and really good friends, not to mention, the USA would always be on Canada's side during wars, and will always defend them! US is flawed, racism, slavery, Trump, terrible health care system but it's a good country. We gotta focus on the good things, not be absorbed into the bad things, like people are doing now!
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.
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.
The United States should end military aid to Israel.
1. Military Aid to Israel is unnecessary. Israel is a very prosperous country and more than capable of paying for it's own military.
2. Military aid to Israel is a security risk to the United States. Israel has been selling American developed military technology to China for more than a decade. These sales have been instrumental in the modernization of China's military.
3.Military aid to Israel is a diplomatic liability.
4. Military aid to Israel is illegal under American law. Israel's human rights violations disqualifies Israel from receiving military aid under the Leahy law and Israel's having nuclear weapons while refusing to allow inspections or sign the nuclear nonproliferation treaty makes aid to Israel illegal under the Symington amendment.
Israel is the USA's pet because it is the only democracy in the Middle East and shares American views. The country is extremely crucial to America's presence in the most unstable area in the world. America has repeatedly backed Israel, including using its veto power, in the United Nations; the vast majority of America's UN vetoes have been in favor of Israel. Now Trump has recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, clearly demonstrating that the country favors Israel over any Middle Eastern or Muslim state. The USA has gone against NATO's interests to defend Israel, especially in recent years.
I believe that Isreal is a strong, honest country and the so-called Muslims should butt out. Don't you have enough.no, you want more.
Europe and Canada all freeload of the U.S., Japan doesn't do a thing, Korea can't defend themselves, the Aussies and New Zealanders don't help us anymore, Latin America is just chaos, India and Pakistan are too chummy with China, so Israel is the only one left. They give us military tech, stabilize the region, fight terrorists, buy U.S. products, and best of all, not one U.S. man is needed by the Israelis. Israel is truly our most capable, friendliest, and all-around best ally.
While Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, and the US bombed Japan at the end of the war, currently looking at present day relations easily makes Japan one of the US's strongest allies. Japan loves American culture, and the US loves Japanese culture.
"As a Japanese, We are Americans slave. We do anything they want." Technically that's not true since the US gave Japan McDonald's, 7-Eleven, and of course their own version of Spider-Man back in the 70s.
Japan and South Korea are stronger allies than anything in Europe in my opinion.
Yes, we did bomb these people, while they bombed us, but it's just not the same government anymore.
I can't believe that the U.K. still manages to think it's the US' greatest ally when the Pacific and Eastern Asia is where all action is happening.
And I wonder why Russia isn't on this list.
The US has also been to (an indirect) war with them, and it's been one of the greatest rivalries in History, after perhaps England and France, but that (like Japan) is a thing of the past.
Both countries work together on Space and other things.
These are the two most developed countries in the world, and some still manage to complain and say that they are pure enemies.
Guys, it's Russia or China, and Russia's the better option.
I believe that today's America is more focused on Pacific relations than Atlantic ones.
I'm not just saying this cause I like anime, but I feel japan is a genuine ally to us now. The nuke was a catastrophy, and as a american even I sometimes question it ethically, but that's war. We helped rebuild them in a sense, and you could argue that was to spread democracy, but I feel it was a lot more genuine then that. One of the asian countries we can really seem to trust at this point, since we kinda have to be friends with china or that economy is not gonna last. If north korea got out of hand, they would have our backs anytime, and their is no doubt we would have theirs.
As Americans, we will protect South Korea and their freedom AT ALL COSTS. The US is watching, helping, and sustaining South Korea and China is watching, helping, and sustaining North Korea. The two countries are like a large-scale social experiment We try not to interfere with the other because we both want to prove that our government is better. The US wants to prove that a democracy works better than a dictatorship.
After the Korean war the North hatred of the U.S. meant that the south would grow closer in order to remove any power by North Korea. As long as North Korea exist, South Korea will love the U.S.
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.
I'm south Korean and I $ you.S. I think that goes the same way around. U.S. is a big part of the strong south korea that is today. Many south koreans love americans, and will even offer to take photos. Through the rough korean war comes a friendship for the ages.
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!
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.
I mate Australia has been helping America in so many wars for example World War I, the Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War, WW2, the Korean war, the Vietnam war, the gulf war, the war in Afghanistan, the Iraq war, and even today with ISIS. We help America in every single war that they've got involved in. We didn't have to help we weren't being attack in some of the wars "That they got involved in" we step in even though we weren't involved. We didn't ask anything in return did we ask for anything, no we didn't.
Just Lafayette, if our banner is Blue, White and Red it's not from the French Revolution but from Lafayette who liked those 3 colors from the US flag.
We definitively like America, even if some times we have some difficulties to get along well. France is the first consumer and presence of Mc Donalds, paradox in the country of gastronomy. Anyway and personally I do love to go in USA for having nice trips. Hope we'll keep our relationships. We'll never forget the famous D Day.
ISIS dislikes the USA so much that they bomb our allies.
I've seen multiple news stories about how France is bombed because they are our allies, yet they still keep being our allies nonetheless. Like a friends who gets bullied for being your friends but still chooses to stay with you.
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.
Been on our side since the 1700s, like a good childhood friend. We've had each others backs for so long. Who helped the colonists take on the british? France, and we repay that by helping liberate them. Thanks to trump, our ties with other countries especially european hasnt been great, but we as the people will always have each others back
Well, to start off, Germany did not do anything in World War 2. That's just the country the enemy originate from the Nazis were the problem not Germany. Germany might have a small army but they are very trusted by the US and Germany spends a lot of their money on NEW technology to help out the European Union and the US, they deserve 1st place. Not Great Britain speaking UK conquered all but 3 countries and were at war with US/The patriots for DECADES. Even past the American Revolution, and Germany has NEVER been at war with The US.
Germany to me is a symbol of hope. You hate yourself, the world at this point hates you, and everybody wants to kill you, but you come back even stronger. I respect germans for that, and having to go through their history in a certain decade, and even with a little allied propaganda sprinkled in their. So yeah, that's germany too me.
We German raise from the stroll of racist. our government is better than USA why do we need to become of them? Angela Markel is the Son of Greatest Dictator in the world, who have heart to the Jew People gave them a shelter of Holocaust as Love and Patient, as German people we love beer and sex, no one will defeat our country in any weak Economy,
Just because Germany was an enemy back about a century ago doesn't mean they're enemies today. In fact, America's biggest army base is in Germany, and the Germans have changed a LOT since the 1940s.
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.
Indeed the Polish people are very democratic now and are in a critical part of Europe.
Always close with U.S., will grow closer as Germany distances itself with the U.S.
Poland is the top US ally today. They actually pay their share for defense.
India will surely be a superpower. And USA must support democratic federal India as there huge man power, English speaking labor and they are also a military superpower. They also have Russian tech which USA can use against Russia and china. I recommend India as the best counterpart against Evil China
Pretty sure India-Russia relations are on the downswing. Automatically means India-US relations are on the upswing. Besides, the Chinese are a big cause of concern on one side, the Pakistanis (go figure) on the other side. Strong democratic Ideals, great bilateral Trade partnership, excellent Defense Partnership with India being part of every major Millitary Drills and shared interests in stopping the Chinese Hegemony - makes them natural Allies
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.
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.
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.
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.
USA has been a Big brother to The Philippines. It is also the most trusted ally of USA in South East Asia. Both are committed to support each other's wellfare, security, and Interests no matter what.
Like father like son, almost like U.K. and U.S. A great pacific ally, and we would defend them against any other imperial japan anytime.
They share a strong and positive accord as dose the Australia they are both crustal Ally's in the Asian pacific.
New Zealand is a key part of the U.S allies as we share our Democratic ways. Often I think the U.S should look to NZ as we have a brilliant social welfare system and are the safest country in the world along with the least amount of corruption. We have a lot to trade with the U.S such as dairy products Wood and seafood. As Donald Trump has became President many American are fleeing to New Zealand as a safe happy country. We also are one of the countries with the least amount of poverty. We are very similar to Australia and I think we should be up there with them
Australia's little brother. Seriously we Aussie have a clause in our Consitution saying that NZ can be a part of the Federation whenever it wants to be.
The only country to be with us on every war.
The good old kiwis
Out of Europe Norway and the U.S. share many similarities that cause the two countries to get along well.
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.
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.
Yes Americans, we're gonna pay for your wall ( or is it our wall since we have to pay for? ) because we like to help haters of our people! We are the best U.S. allies you can imagine.
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
I'm mexican, technecly I live in the us now but its not mexicos fault we had a war. Besides its onyour point of view, I think their rolationship os strong, and I'm sure it's the president we have how things will move, I think mexico is a bog allie
England should not be on this list because above Great Britain (of which England is part of) is number one! Please join the vote with Great Britain so as not to confuse anybody! Thanks.
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.
On this list are you going by England, Great Britain, or United Kingdom. I see that Great Britain is already #1
England needs to be on number one! England is barely a country it's the UK
Italy should be out of this list, never helped us, they elected and erected Mussolini before and during ww2, they mass migrated to US after we've done (with our real allies) all the job. When they first migrated to America during the 20s, major part of criminality was done by this 4% of Italian migrants and never stop ever after Capone,Lucchesi.. And now? Nothing against ISIS just talking...
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
There is a proverb that reads: 'Do not trust my friends; as for my enemies, they are for me to take care of'.
Dedicated to our American 'friends'.
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.
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.
Its good as an ally
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.
Hell no, Pakistan is an ally with some of America's greatest enemies! No offense.
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
The Dutch like the Americans are inventers, their is history of the two countries supporting each other scientifically.
This a good country
The Netherlands is a great and good country and I for one think this country is a grand allie
These guys are awesome I'm 52% Dutch and America has no better ally
Despite cultural differences and negative media image, the Saudis had our back since the 1950's. They are a critical ally in the Middle East that helped enforce our foreign policy in that region.
They also supported us when it comes to anti-terrorism, counter-intelligence, the economy and energy.
Yes we have cooperated with Saudi Arabia but almost everyone involved with 9/11 was a Saudi.
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.
Yes Albania is a critical area the Balkens which proves a gateway to the Middle East.
Still one of the best allies. They have a good military. Turkey would be very effective if going against Russia.
One of the best and powerful ally of USA, regarding its operations in the middle east.
The like number 4
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.
Its good as an ally
The first country to recognize the United States of America, and always favors and is favored by matters relating to the other country, such as in the Western Sahara
Morocco was the first country to recognize the USA. As an American, I love Morocco and I don't know of any anti-Moroccan sentiment in our country.
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.
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
