ALLIES NO MORE

Germany, France and Russia. They're dead meat, but for the past decade they've been dying, so it shouldn't be a surprise. Charles Krauthammer bangs a few nails in their coffins just for good measure.

I'm not sure the Russians have ever really been an ally, and the last time I recall Germany and France really stepping up to the line was in the Gulf War.

In fact, a lot of folks ar suggesting that the concept of the "West" (as in the Cold War concept of the "West") is no longer geographically correct or even useful, since our true allies are no longer the traditional western European countries, but include many eastern European and Asian/Pacific countries.
