The fragil illusion that we have allies.
We have a couple of bought-off craven govenments (and not many at that), but NO popular support NOT ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD! Even the POPE is against us.
(Oh, I guess we do in Israel, of course, BUT we're paying THEM $billions not to fight, so I guess, that doesn't count as much of an ally)
