Top 10 America’s Allies 2013

Article by ,

Ever since America became the world’s major superpower it has emphasized a lot in making allies. In order to prove its dominance in the world, it needs the help of the allies who can be trusted to stand by them. Having a good relationship with so many nations has given an edge to the United States among others in the race of dominance. Allies are assets not the liabilities. This is very well clear in the mind of the United States government and so each year they take several steps to please their allies.

In the current scenario, there are some countries in every continentwhich are in a good relation with the United States. Although because of the recent events and the political decisions taken by the US government this list has shortened but still there are many nations that the United States can count on, to stay with them in the times of crisis. There are various advantages of having an ally as it helps the nations to work together in various fields such as military, intelligence, science and technology, trade and academics. Here we have prepared a list of the ten such countries who are America’s top most allies in the year 2013. Take a look.

10. Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia

Right from the year 1933, United States have had a diplomatic relation with Saudi Arabia. In their relationship of eighty years there were many moments when the political decision of both these countries affected their relationships. When the United States was attacked by the terrorists in November 2001, the Saudi Arabian government extended its hand to join US in its war against terrorism. A number of US presidents have publicly stated their happiness with the Saudi Arabia – United States relationship. The Saudi Arabian Army gets most of their arms and ammunition from the US. In recent years they have extended their relationship beyond the war on terrorism and oil. Today 3.5% of the foreigners in America who are pursuing the higher educations are from Saudi Arabia.

9. Russia

Russia

Soon after the disintegration of the USSR, Russia and United States started the peace talks and as a result today they are helping each other in various filed which ranges from science and technology to the academics. Russia is now one of the major superpowers in the world and to assure the stability of the world’s economy, US wants their relationship to be in peaceful terms. The government of both this country recently signed the cybersecurity pact whose prime goal is to ensure the cyber security in the world. Further they are also working together in various space programs and are determined to cut the number of nuclear weapons which is a result of their Anti Proliferation deal.

8. Egypt

Egypt

As a result of the United States government’s diplomatic pressure in the year 1956, France and Britain withdrew their troops from Egypt. They were making their move to seize the Suez Canal. This marked the beginning of the Egypt United States friendship. Despite going through some of the rough patches in their diplomatic relationship, both these countries have continued to fight against terrorism and have been focused on spreading peace. Each year the United States provides military and economic significant amount to Egypt in and helps in its progress.

7. Turkey

Turkey

The relation between the United States and Turkey has been friendly since 1943 when the Second Cairo Conference was held. Their political relation declined in the last five years because of the Iraq War. According to the Turkey government the destabilization of Iraq resulted into troubles for Turkey and that is why they opposed the United States war against the Iraq. However this has not affected the collaboration of these two countries in other areas and they have worked together to meet their common goals. Recently the Prime Minister of Turkey, Receo Tayyip Erdogan visited the United States with the aim to straighten their ties.

6. Mexico

Mexico

Mexico and United States are one of the most peaceful neighbours and they have been friend for such a long time now. Over the years both these countries have signed various treaties which have resulted into even stronger relationship between them. Both of these countries have similar culture and lifestyle. The North American Free Trade Agreement has resulted in a steep rise in trade between these two countries. So today United States is the largest trading partner of Mexico. Currently more than 1 million United States citizens are living in Mexico. They have been there for each other in need for an hour.

5. Israel

Israel

The relationship of the United States and Israel has a major impact on the policies of the American government in the Middle East. The government of both these countries has given huge importance to each other and are working together to spread peace and harmony in the Middle East. In the past Israel obtained substantial economic assistance from the United States. Currently the American government provides military assistance to them. This is the reason Israel has been successful in establishing itself as one of the powerful military nation. Israel was one of the two original non NATO allies of the United States which has now expanded to seven in the Middle East.

4. Germany

Germany

When we look at the Germany’s relation with the countries outside the European Council, the United States is at the top spot. They both have a transatlantic relation between them. These two countries have always respected the work ethics and have worked sincerely in fortifying their relationship. Both of them are the joint NATO members due to which they have a very strong military collaboration. The United States Army has one of its bases in Southern Germany. Their economic relation is important for both of them as it is a major source of employment in both the country. Germany’s 50% foreign investment goes to the US. The government of both these countries has co-operated with each other even in the field of academics and intelligence.

3. France

France

Considered as the oldest United States ally, France is at the number third spot. France stood by the United States and played a major role in the American Revolutionary War and this has been the major reason that the government of these two countries has always been keen on carrying forward this relationship. Both these countries have collaborated on various occasions with the result of which both of them have been benefitted. There were some matters on which their views were not on the same track but when Nicolas Sarkozy became president of France in the year 2007, the France government took the necessary step towards rebuilding a friendlier relation with the United States.

2. Great Britain

Great Britain

Great Britain and United States have been close to each other since a very long time. When you look at the history there was a time when Britain ruled over the colonies in the United States. And so they have very similar language, culture and the legal system. With the peacekeeping effort made by both the nations gradually their relationship has improved. In recent times, they are one of the major supporters of each other. According to the British Foreign Policy they term their relation with the United States as “Most Important Bilateral Relationship”. Today they co-operate each other in the field of trade, finance, military intelligence and technology. Together they have been carried out many peacekeeping missions in various parts of the world.

1. Canada

Canada

The top most United States ally is its neighbor country Canada. The strong relationship between them is more than two centuries old. Both these countries share the longest free border in the world. These two nations have always stood for each other and have supported one another in hard times. This relationship has been of mutual benefit. They both have allowed immense trade opportunities and that is why presently they are the largest trading partner in the world. This has resulted in improved economic conditions. Government of both these countries has been found working together on many issues such as the intelligence, security, technology and so on.

    Really crap list!!!! major insult to the British who have sacrificed 600 military dead, spent $billions fighting alongside American troops while also providing naval in air bases. Where is Australia? they fought with you in WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf war, Iraq and Afghanistan.

    • listdose

      Matt,
      If you look at the list closely you will notice that Great Britain’s already included and for your knowledge UK is part of Great Britain so that clarifies.
      And we could just include the Top 10 allies so Australia was left out considering there are 10 more countries that are much more closer to US.

        Sorry for being the bearer of bad news. Australia is demographically, economically and militarily INSIGNIFICANT! Forget the list of world powers, you’re not even a part of the emerging BRIC countries. You need the US way more than the US needs you.

    How in hell is EGYPT closer to USA than Australia!? this is outrageous!
    Fix your damn list!

    • Interesting

      Aussie has limited military power to support the ally. It is still protected by US(navy) UK(politics)and China(economy). How can it become an important ally for US?

      • Aussie bloke

        protected by UK politics? where did you pull that load of garbage from? progressively since the 1940s and completed in 1986 the UK has absolutely no legal or political power in Australia. Australia has 2500 US marines here for training and a small joint signals intelligence outpost where both Australian, British and Americans work…that’s about it. but yes most of our main economic ties are both with China and the USA.
        in both Iraq and Afghan wars we had supplied the 3rd most amount of troops if im not mistaken? behind that of the UK…… so I think we really are just behind the UK as Americas closest ally.

        • Interesting

          You, Aussies are always over-optimistic about yourself. In fact, Indonesians dare to declare a war to fight against you.

          • Aussie bloke

            haha Indonesians, if they declared war on us…what would they do? they got scared in 2006 when Australia nearly declared war on them over East timor… they are plagued by Ammo and fuel shortages not to mention lack of maintenance and training….but why would anyone want to go to war with their neighbour? sounds moronic in my opinion….. miss-informed people like you always look silly when they comment on something they have hardly any information about…. also it seems your opinion is somewhat opposite of what many think here….but none the less you are entitled to it.

          • Interesting

            You are really misguided. Dude, please refer to the UK yahoo repot, which showed that Indonesian had burnt your flag and felt really angry on your overhearing on their diplomats. What is worse that some Indonesian want to declare a war against you, Aussie. Your internal minister had apologized on the twitter, but they thought it was not over. Your poor prime minister, Tony Abbot, are now considering a former apology to make them calm down. You are really passive now, I’m sure. The joint military drill between two countries is in halt and Indonesian hackers have attacked lots of your government and company’s websites, which created a great loss on Australia. You could not do anything towards the country which you think has a poor military. So you ought to know what I mean.

          • Aussie bloke

            i am well aware of them over reacting by burning flags and having a childish tantrum because someone gave them a taste of their own medicine…Australia has just done the same thing they did to us in 2004…double standards much?.. and secondly if you could call it Hacking… they launched a few weak DDOS attacks against non sensitive websites lol….WOW! please tell me how this created any loss? the only thing Indonesia has in military superiority is their Numbers…that’s about it! their military technology is inferior, they struggled to get enough fuel for exercises….let alone any military operations.their defence budget is less than half that of Australia’s, their air force is basically a basket case, with a hand full of Old F-16’s,F-5s a couple of Su-27s and about 9 Su-30s with very limited stores of BVR missiles and a lack of AWACS……not to mention Australia probably pays for most of it as we give them a crap load of foreign aid….which i hope is cut off immediately…as we have better things of our own to spend taxpayers money on….anyway this thread isn’t even a debate about Australia and Indonesia. so i see no point in your Hijacking.

          • Photar Miyazumi

            Umm they threw a tantrum and shouted their jigga-book islamajiya bullshit………how does that make them ……hold on Ive forgotten what your point was in the first place because Im boring the shit out of myself reading it

          • Photar Miyazumi

            IM Australian and Im the FIRST person to say yes:
            1 – We are the biggest tall poppies in the world
            2 – We think we’re the safest country in the world but frankly I’d bypass this place if I was any other nationality other than Anglo Saxon (Remember the song? “Don’t come to Australia….you might just killed…..your blood will probably get spilled. We have big sharks, funnel webs, taipans and croc……”
            3 – We think we’re the friendliest easy going country in the world but sometimes we really can be a pack of c***s to people who aren’t Australian (see #3)
            4 – We lay claim to ANYTHING even REMOTELY Australian if it’s successful while distancing ourselves from anything that’s SLIGHTLY foreign if it’s embarrassing us
            Name me a country though WITHOUT its bad points? I’d rather have these than oh I don’t know? History of colonial human rights vilations (Britain), a stupid Eye for an Eye policy that results in innocent people getting killed EVERY day (Israel), Egypt has……..well………fucken EVERYTHING!, Saudi Arabia (same as Egypt but the publicly chop people’s heads off)……etc fucking etc.
            And Indonesia? They would be FUCKED without us. Do you remember a little tidal wave thingy that swallowed Bander Aceh like a modern day Atlantis? Do you KNOW how much money (MY tax dollars) was GIVEN to that shit hole of an archipelago? ONE BILLION DOLLARS plus ANOTHER BILLION DOLLARS worth of interest-free grants.
            Yes we’re basically the Chicken Hawk from Foghorn Leghorn or Scrappy Doo but ffs America could certainly have worse allies than us (see list above). Which country was first on board after Britain to help you cunts bomb the fuck out of Hussein and actually provide combat soldiers (of which 41 have died) to the ‘useless’ fight in Afghanistan. I agree in principal with what you guys tried to do over there but you were just better off containing those towel headed opium growing motherfuckers and drop an occasional MOAB just to keep their heads back in their proverbial shitpile of a document called the Koran.

        • Gordon Gekko

          The UK has absolutely no legal or political power in Australia?
          Yet, the Queen is your Queen and she rules over your country with her Gov General. The Gov General rules over parliament in Australia and Canada. And the Gov General can dislove parliament and fire the Australian PM if he or she wanted too. How can they do this, you ask? Well sport, the Queen is on your money, the Queen runs the commonwealth of nations, and she resides in the UK, lol.
          Like it or not, but you’re still under British rule, champ.
          Oh yeah, and the queen would have to declare war for Canada and Australia if the big one ever hit.
          Australia and Canada aren’t 100% real countries that are 100% free.

          • Aussie bloke

            yep, and you have just shown that you know absolutely nothing about Australian laws , or anything in that matter and chose to blindly comment on it…like the total retard you are…lol
            since 1986 with “the Australia Act” laws were passed that dissolved any legal binding between the british and Australian parliament’s, the UK can not and does not have any bearing on Australian law, the Queen cannot sack the prime minister of Australia, the Governor general can in the queens name, as in…he makes the decision for her…ala Gough Whitlam in 1975, he was sacked by john kerr the governor general at the time…. the queen was actually contacted about the situation , her reply was that she is unable to act on anything here, as it wasn’t her business to do so, the governor general didn’t even talk to her about the decision, he didn’t need to, because after all she is nothing but a ceremonial figurehead.
            funny thing is she doesn’t even appoint the governor general…the prime minister does this….

Fuck China. There’s my argument. Case closed.

    • Realistic

      They should be first in my opinion. They appreciate you guys more. As a Canadian it actually offends me that they list Canada as their main ally. It’s kind of like writing down a reference on a resume of someone you’ve worked for that doesn’t like you, without asking first. Canadians see it very differently here.

      Aussies well deserve to be on that top 10.

  • Shane Warne

    This list is pretty terrible. I’m trying to determine how you weighed up the nations and if you put more weight in trade than military? If that’s the case then China is a major ally too due to the importance of their trade.

    Anyways, Countries that SHOULD BE in the top 10 (due to them being MAJOR military allies) that you missed are Australia, South Korea and Japan. All of whom are easily higher than Egypt, Mexico, Russia and Turkey (not saying that they aren’t important allies). Mexico and Russia are more or less only trade allies. Egypt is more or less just a political ally that resulted from the drama in the middle east. Turkey is an ally, but again they’re more a nation that will only side with the US if it’s been deemed internationally acceptable. Australia, South Korea and Japan on the other hand will support the US regardless and are key defence partners.

  • Interesting

    The list is not reasonable. US and Saudi already have the conflicts on many issues of Middle East such as Syria and Iran, and Russia is not an ally of US at all.

  • Realistic

    The relationship between Canada and the US is a one way street in the way of America being the beneficiary. Aside from fattening foods and pop culture the US effectively gives nothing to Canada. “these two countries have supported EACH OTHER in hard times.” Umm…no. Canadians have supported Americans in their hard times. Canadians were practically human shields for the American and British militaries in WW2 and WW1, and we’ve only fought in your wars. I can guarantee, bureaucratic NATO bullshit aside, if Canada needed military assistance for something the US would be the last country on the planet to volunteer. It pisses me off when Americans get credit as equals in any relationship with another country because they never have been, and they certainly aren’t to Canada and Canadians. You’ve taken in our entertainers I suppose…thank you? You’re welcome for the lumber, oil, military support, etc, that we’ve given you. Moreover, when have you guys ever acknowledged the things we do for you. Anytime the relationship is mentioned it’s under the context that Americans do just as much for Canadians which is purely and simply nonsense. I think it’s time Canadians dry up the tap and quit being taken advantage of.

      U.S. foreign direct investment (FDI) in Canada (stock) was $319.0
      billion in 2011 (latest data available), an 10.2% increase from 2010.

      Canada FDI in the United States (stock) was $210.9 billion in 2011 (latest data available), up 12% from 2010.

      Canada is currently our largest goods trading partner with $616
      billion in total (two ways) goods trade during 2012. Goods exports
      totaled $292 billion; Goods imports totaled $324 billion. The U.S.
      goods trade deficit with Canada was $32 billion in 2012.

      Trade in
      services with Canada (exports and imports) totaled $84 billion in 2011
      (latest data available). Services exports were $56 billion; Services
      imports were $28 billion. The U.S. services trade surplus with Canada
      was $28 billion in 2011.

      Realistio one is entitled to their opinion but, your opinion is at odd with the facts. The United States has a slightly negative trade balance with Canada.It is illogical to say current day that we do not have a mutually beneficial relationship. I am not educated in history so I won’t argue historical context, perhaps throughout the history of our relationship Canada has done more to help the U.S, perhaps they haven’t. I am unsure of any metric for measuring such a thing. Also, ever wonder if the reason a resource rich country (Canada) has never been invaded is because it shares a border with the worlds largest military power?

    This really is a terrible list, Mexico and Russia have no place on here at all, saudi turkey and egypt are all really ‘conditional’ allies. What about Australia, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, New Zealand, Colombia, Bahrain (houses navy 5th fleet) and EVERY SINGLE NATO COUNTRY

  • Roy

    Even non major powers like Albania and Kosovo should be listed higher than some of these

  • billnye

    This is quite possibly the worst top 10 list I’ve ever seen on any subject. I sincerely hope you aren’t American because it is appalling how ignorant you are on US foreign relations.

    At least half of the countries on your list either openly despise the United States (Egypt, Russia) or merely have a relationship of economics or convenience (Saudi Arabia, Germany, Mexico).

    The fact that your idiotic lost doesn’t even mention Australia, South Korea, or Japan is hilarious. They are all arguably in the top 5 along with the UK, Canada, and Israel.

    Also not having UK #1 on your list is lol worthy at best. They are without a doubt our closest ally and will defend each other til the ends of the Earth.

    Please stay in school. That is all.

    Hmmm, Australia is the only other country apart from the USA that the US government has allowed to use growler F 18 Super Hornets. They operate the eyes and ears to Asia and much of the eastern hemisphere at a little known place called Pine Gap. ANZUS also ring a bell anyone? Every conflict together since WW2 and a new US Marines based in Darwin upcoming. No not fucking Allies Australia and The USA are more like brothers, for those ignorant morons on here who know jack schit.

  • Henry Krinkle

    The most important and closest ally of the US is Saudi Arabia. The United States is a far more religious society than Britain, Australia and much of Europe. Its Christian fundamentalists have more in common with the fundamentalists in the Saudi state than the secular Europeans. It also offered the US what the State Department called in 1945 “a stupendous source of strategic power, and one of the greatest material prizes in world history.” The US dismantled the parts of the British Empire it wanted for itself and offered it the position of “junior partner”. Saudi Arabia remains the number 1 recipient of US weapons and military training. Just since 2007 alone, more than 1,000 Royal Saudi Air Force personnel have attended USAF training programmes, including pilot, navigator, logistics, maintenance and explosive ordnance disposal training, as well as professional military education courses.

  • Gordon Gekko

    Canada and Mexico are the biggest US trading partners. Anybody ever heard of NAFTA? As for an all around Ally the USA can count on, well that’s an easy one to answer: Australia and New Zeland. Both countries sent troops to help America in Vietnam when the British decided to be Cowards. Also, Australia will surpass the British economy in 2020. Another colony set to pass the UK. Ah, and a US state is set to surpass the UK as well: California. Yey, they surpass the UK economy in 2019. I would rather fight and die next to an Aussie than a Limey Brit. Brits are too Limey for my American tastes. As for Canada, they’re nothing but Northern Michigan and mostly sound like Americans, hahahahahah, heheheheheheh, hahahahahahaha.

  • Sean McNally

    I think Americas best friend and ally is Mexico. America allows Mexicans to flood across like water and then they pay for them to stay there. That is a true friend.

    • Henry Krinkle

      The Mexican government has put over 2 million corn farmers out of business over the past few years by allowing imports of heavily subsidized corn from the United States. After NAFTA, Mexican farmers on average lost more than $1 billion per year during the nine-year period of 1997–2005.

        Mexico is a sieve. There are probably 20 million illegals in America (likely more) all from Mexico and Central America. Many are getting a free ride. Mexico has done nothing to America but drag her down.

        • Henry Krinkle

          Hi Sean McNally, if that’s your real name…

          Mexicans in the US are pretty much viewed in the same way the Irish were by the Anglo-Americans and British. That is, little more than lazy, sub-human, troublesome slaves. I was brought up in England in the 1970s and 80s to believe the Irish were a primitive tribal people as well as religious fanatics who routinely committed acts of savage terrorism against the decent English, who were only trying to civilise them. Funny old world. Check out these crazy stereotypes.

            What kind of name is Krinkle? Let me educate you. The Irish were indeed discriminated against when they came here over 150 due to the famine inflicted upon them by the British scum. Everyone knows the history of the British and the Irish. The difference is the the Irish OVERCAME with hard work and courage and built huge businesses and collected vast wealth in North America. The Irish success stories, the wealth and power they have in North America is legendary. Contrast to the mexicans of today who only know how to be in a cartel and swarm across the border as illegals and get a free handout for life. You cannot even put Mexicans and Irish in the same sentence unless you are some delusional moron.

            Ha ha. Congratulations, you’re now the “British scum”. Pat yourself on the back.

            You are not a very intelligent person twinkle toes. But hey I can understand from someone who supports illegal aliens, refugees and mexicans who provide no support to a system, yet bleed it dry. Good luck with that.Mexico should be number 2 in the list above after Canada, however it is number 6. That about says it all.

    People on here are complete idiots. I’m American and acknowledge that Australia is one of our greatest allies and Great Britain should be number one! Canada really?? This list is pathetic and the other Americans on here insulting Aussie’s are a bunch of morons.

    1. UK
    2. Canada
    3. Australia
    4. Israel
    5. Japan
    6. South Korea
    7. UAE
    8. Pakistan
    9. Bahrain
    10. France

    Im An American (adjective) And I personally love Canada. I live soo near it and it actually heartwarming that (for what i can tell) that They like us back :) Canada and The United States have backed each other up so much.

    However I do see some comments on how Australia Is not on the list. I do not hear much of Australia nor do i see or hear how america has helped Australia. Now This does not say i do not like Aussies, I actually quit love them. We all come from the mother country in a sense (Britain) and i think we should stengthen our ties more. I would love to see some more Aussies here in Maine. :)
