The Fab Four Roundup
This is a recap of the 4 posts about the new alliances we need for the future. The key nations for us are Japan, India, and Australia. Sadly, Britain is not in that list as they are drifting ever closer to the E.U. (the EU Referendum Blog does a good job reporting that). It does not seem as though the drift can be arrested, so I do not think they will play as big a role with us in the future as they have in the past. We have worked together as a group before in several cases. Together, and alone, we helped the 2004 tsunami victims as a group long before the U.N. ever got involved. We are also the key members of the anti-proliferation and anti-piracy coalitions. As a group, they are critical to us and each other as they surround the Asian half of the World Island. This, not NATO, is the key alliance for us.
