Top 10 Best Allies of the United States
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.
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.
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.
After this kerfuffles in 1776 and 1812 and pro or to WW2 we were strategic competitors and we won their great respect in WW2 by saving their bacon after two years of going it alone in Europe and Asia later, the mother land need our resources but had a Lion for prime minister the second greatest to Maggie Thatcher the Iron Lady. The Royal Marines wear Green Barets and taught army rangers who later became American Green Berets.
I'd say Canada is an excellent ally for the United States to have. Very stable, calm relationship, and Canada will always back the US in wars and tough situations. Plus, when the United States go overboard (George Bush wars, for example) Canada won't participate and provide a good reality touch for the country.
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.
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!
Israel and US have been strong allies. Both share democracy and both shared military training. This is the reason why Israel is one of the hardest countries to invade
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.
Israel has been a brotherly ally ever since it's inception in 1948. They have stood by our side in all of our conflicts and have proven to be a reliable ally in war and peace. Israel is also one of the few allies who is not dependent on the US meaning that it does not create a burden for the Us.
Israel and the US share humanitarian values, history and spirituality. They have come to each other's aid with technology and volunteerism during crises. They have both taken in global refugees. They buy each other's products. Israel is a friendly, wonderful place to visit, and loves the US. I think Israel is the number one ally of the US.
Japan has a huge capital city called Tokyo, other cities in Japan include Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Osaka, Nagoya and Sendai. It's close to South Korea, which is on the North West of it. It has a large population of 126.86 million people (Statistics Bureau of Japan. Retrieved April 27, 2016). ...read more.
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.
HELLO! No we weren't allies in WW2, but how long ago was that? Decades! Things have changed. I've never been to Japan, but I've talked to Japanese people in America. They are friendly, and more polite than many Americans, but not very openly- minded. I've read it's because they don't want to mess up in speaking English, but who cares if you mess up? Everyone makes mistakes. Talk about me trying to speak another language, I'd probably do worse than many people. :) So, overall, all of my experiences with Japanese people were good ones. Whoever said this was a "stereotype on Japanese people," I'd suggest you read some history after WW2. This isn't the only website where Japan was considered one of our closest allies. If you are Japanese, and you are reading this, don't be afraid to speak English. I bet you speak English better than an American speaks Japanese.
Japan is the ally I consider closest and we will continue to be their ally until the end. If anyone messes with Japan they mess with the U.S.A for we have a great trade relationship and many great personal relationships with the Japanese people. We have many sister cities in Japan that work closely together for foreign exchange between schools and they join us in many relief efforts around the world. Truly a great alliance that I believe will endure.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The US needs to strengthen ties with Australia by Making Australia Choose who's side we are on, China or The US. Australia is trying to find an impossible balance between upholding US-Australia and Australia-China relations. The US needs to show that IT is the side that will win, Right Now CHINA is becoming the more Collected, Predictable and Calm partner. Trump has so far been handing victories to china. China would love nothing more than a US that distances itself from the world.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
France spends $51 billion dollars on military(6th largest). Also France was the first one to help us they should get the credit for helping us. Also France is very strong at fighting they are going through a whole lot and still keeping there country together.
Some territory was lost after World War 1 and a lot more after World War 2, basically started by Hitler's Nazi dictatorship. Then the Soviets kept their zone - the 'DDR', East Germany, separate with a wall through the middle of Berlin, until 1990 when the country was reunited. ...read more.
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.
The US has grown a lot closer to Poland over the past few years. Their country has developed itself out of its communist occupation very well and is quickly on the path to being a major world power. They share a lot of American values and the US has been recently moving a lot of our troops there.
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.
Still grateful to us over that whole Soviet union thing. Poland is quickly turning into our bulwark of eastern Europe
India will be a critical Ally for decades to come. Thank goodness they have the size and the strong ethical backbone to stand up to its Communist neighbors
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.
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
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.
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 US technically own this country and I'm suprised they are good allies with us and are not trying to get their independence.
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.
The Filipinos and Americans have always had a lot of mutual respect for each other. The values of the Philipinnes are similar to those of America and the two countries are still going strong together, especially post WWII
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.
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.
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
Yet Donald Trump hates the people over there.. I sense that the special bond will be broken.
While this cooperation doesn't come to mind, Ukraine will focus on making friendship with the United States more, as it is the only way the country will survive.
Actually yes the western part part that's why Russia has claimed parts of the eastern part.
Is Ukraine our allie?
Is Ukraine an allie?
England can trace its history as far back as the 10th century, but modern England didn't start till the Norman Invasion of 1066. In 1535, England annexed Wales and in 1603 shared a Monarch with Scotland, which eventually led to the Unification of the two into 'Great Britain', in 1801 Ireland was incorporated forming the 'United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland', in 1922, 6 counties stayed in the UK while the rest of Ireland declared Independence. ...read more.
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
You're the worlds best. Bless god
Taiwan is certainly forming a very good alliance with America. USA has always been at Taiwan side, convincing them to turn. On to Communist China. And helping them get ahead and technology to destroy China. It is the common way of fighting for the USA. Never actually find themselves, they never actually send troops straight into China. They will always use tactics such as telling Taiwan to fight China. The USA broke apart the Soviet Union. We use North and South Korea as a tool to fight China. Remember that.
The USA has always been by Taiwan's side. Since the Chinese Communist Party took control, the USA has always helped Taiwan from being taken over by China.
As the power of China increases, the US will need to form a stronger bond with Taiwan. Although we may not be able to officially recognize them yet, Taiwan represents freedom, justice, and tradition while the PRC represents the opposite. The US has supported Taiwan in some way or form since WWII and must continue to do so.
Although I'm actually Aussie, I believe that the US NEEDS to have stronger ties with Taiwan. It is for one a potential flashpoint for conflict, It is a Democratic country, It is proof that democracy and China are compatible despite whatever the mainland says and It is one of the few countries that are actively suppressed by China. If the CCP went to war with Taiwan and didn't secure a quick and decisive victory, the CCP would be viewed by the people as illegitimate. Meaning that Taiwan is the Stadium of which Capitalism and Communism have the tiebreaker.
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.
Turkey is a critical ally to secure its interests in the region.
A Friend Indeed. US has had no ally more loyal than TR and has second largest army in NATO.
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.
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.
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
Africa's best place!
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
Helped fund the revolution and bankrolled out trade for start of our country and we in turn got rid of the Nazis for them. Netherlands are gonna be riding with us for a long time
The Dutch like the Americans are inventers, their is history of the two countries supporting each other scientifically.
They sold us cheaper tea during the revolutionary war. True homies.
This a good country
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.
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.
Yes Albania is a critical area the Balkens which proves a gateway to the Middle East.
