    According to the results from a Rasmussen Reports poll, here are the countries that matter most to Americans:

    Just like last year, Canada leads the list of 18 countries regularly in the news when Americans are asked whether the United States should provide military assistance to that country if it is attacked.

    The other four – in order – are Great Britain, Israel, Germany and Mexico. The level of support is basically unchanged from last year’s survey with the exception of Mexico for which support is down slightly.

    Though I'm sure American support would be warmly welcomed by the U.K if she were to be attacked, I, and I'm sure the Prime Minister will agree with me, can only see America being called upon for protection if Britain were threatened by either Russia or China. The reason being that they overwhelm us in terms of manpower and assets. Even though those assets could be quite easily be rendered useless by a mere turn in the weather.

    But it goes without saying that we'd still shed rivers of blood before we let the Russians or the Dinks get their grubby hands on the crown jewels.

    Summing up, I like to think of the U.K and the U.S as cousins that constantly bicker and argue. But when one or the other is threatened by a tin-pot thug, they both reach for their war chests in unison.

    It appears we are still part of the British Empire (of which Palestine was a part).

    But, so was Saudi Arabia? And Saudi has a much larger strategic value.

    Egypt and Panama control Strategic canals.

    And what about Taiwan? South Korea?

    I'm not even certain Canada isn't really part of the USA, and the USA isn't part of Mexico, so I suppose we need to defend them as much as we'd need to defend Arizona, or Maine.

    So my list includes Canada, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Panama, and Egypt.
