from the perspective of a british, the relationship between other countries with the present most powerful country, U.S|
Barack Obama, you used to say that we had a special relationshipNow that the American-British bond is 'essential', imagine how the US president would descibe other nations
The on-off relationship That would be France. It helped the US win independence from You Know Who but has been rescued so often since then that it needs to show ingratitude. Being shorter than De Gaulle, Sarko is sucking up. It won't last.
**The open relationship That must be Canada. Nuff said.
**The failed relationship Mexico, perhaps, after the drugs and migrant battles. "Poor Mexico, so far from God, so close to the US," as one Mexican dictator put it.
**The loving relationship If it can't be Ireland, it must be Italy, which has better food.
**The long - distance relationship That one must be China. It's a long way across the Pacific - and the Sino-US relationship is going to go the distance. In fact, it is likely to be the key relationship of the 21st century, which may make the rest of us fearful that it doesn't turn into the ugly relationship. A lot of folk could get hurt.
