re:   "Which countries can be considered "friends" of the US? Nowadays, the answer is probably: no one."

  Wrong, ALL 5 eyes are 'friends' as long as there is ONE Chinese alive...

RE: "canada"

  Not any longer, after Saudi Arabia expelled Canada’s ambassador for meddling in their affairs plus the Kingdom ordered about 16,000 Saudi students to study elsewhere.
  Word is out that their big neighbor opened the gates to let them in.

But wait, there's more;  Canada’s arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth some 15 billion USD might also shift to their southern 'friend'.


  The Saudis are, after all, the largest arms purchaser in the world.
      Canada’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia was ordered out of their country in 24 hours.   The Saudis are recalling their ambassador in Canada as well.

     New trade and investment transactions between Canada and Saudi Arabia have been frozen.

ONE Chinese alive...or one Russian.

5 eyes sounds so ominous, just an agreement between countries, not much different than NATO, just closer friends.

If China was as small as the 5 countries, you would probably have something similar.

16,000 Saudi students
Accompanying family members bring the number to 20,000 or more.


The Saudi students – and their tuition – will be placed in study programs in other countries with similar education systems, such as the United Kingdom or the United States, the Saudi official said.


Tuition and living expenses for foreign students vary by province and education program. A full-time Saudi student without Canadian citizenship attending a major school such as the University of British Columbia or University of Toronto would pay $30,000 to $80,000 for tuition and living expenses, depending on their area of study and whether they live on campus....ouch



Canada’s arms deal with Saudi Arabia worth some 15 billion USD might also shift to their southern 'friend'.
(Never should have made the deal to begin with)
Roughly 3,000 jobs and millions of hours’ worth of manufacturing would be at stake if the deal were axed by either side.
