Who really has friends?
I do, all my life.
Try lending someone a lot of money for example?
Many a time, and the favour was returned. Money was always paid back, that's what friends are for.
Trust your girlfriend to them?
Absolutely, no reason not to.
Think that they would never diss you behind your back?
Nothing that they haven't already said to my face first, and vice versa. Again that's what true friends do.
I can't believe the nieve comments about global politics as though people do not understand the facts of life at all. It is tough out there and when you are number one everyone hates you or loves you.
There are many people that like the US, I guess you don't know any of them.

If you are talking about the people of the US then yes, the US has friends - many of them. Most of the people in the world want peace and stability and are willing to live in harmony with other countries. It is only when those people are screwed around by politicians that tension, unrest and war ensues.
So yes, the US people have many friends. The US Government has very few - The Australian Govt, The Canadian Govt and the arse kissing Tony Blair spring immediately to mind.
