Making friends around the world

Via Apostropher, I learn that Jim Henly at Unqualified Offerings is concerned about how the US treats its allies.
... the Italians must hate our guts right now. Not only has Italy been a NATO ally for 50-plus years, not only were they an Iraq War Phase III and IV ally when the rest of the EU was cutting the other way, SISME itself has, as an organization, been the very special butt buddy of the CIA and crazier foreign policy entrepreneurs yet. And one of their intelligence officers gets shot dead by American troops and the US government won’t even let Italian investigators look at the car?
At least we won't have to worry about abusing our allies for long; at this rate, we soon won't have any left.
