We all need friends right? Well, when it comes to American allies, we have got quite a few. With Russia waging an unprovoked war in Ukraine and China looking to replace the United States as the world’s foremost superpower and greatest economy, our reliance on strong relationships with allies and partners that deliver is needed more than ever.
