John Howard and the Australians are true allies of America. Shortly after 911, Howard expressed his countrys solidarity with America saying, "This is no time to be an 80 percent ally." Along with the UK, Australia was the only country on the ground in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban side-by-side with Americans. Then, when Saddams number was up, and China, Russia, France, Canada, and Germany whimpered and sniveled, the UK and Australia were there for us. Italy, Poland, South Korea, Japan, and Thailand have also been stalwart allies. When this period in history is over, Americans should never forget those countries that were true allies when it was not easy and the pressure was on.
So true---America has paid for not recognizing TRUE allies enough already.
