Forgetting our main allies

Reader comment on item: Romney's Remarkable Speech in Jerusalem

"Our two nations are separated by more than 5,000 miles. But for an American abroad, you can't get much closer to the ideals and convictions of my own country than you do in Israel.".

Gee, I could be wrong, but I tend to think Great Britain is a stronger military ally than Israel and is almost parallel to the US in terms of what goals they want to see in the world. But hey, it's okay for Romney to insult them on their preparedness for the Olympics because it's not like he has to worry about losing the British vote.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Yes, you are wrong. Britain is going down in terms of military strength (look at the cuts in spending) and is politically ever more different from the U.S.
