Right, but what I'm saying is that they never said that the partnership is over. All they said was that they just need to be more willing to stand up for their own national interests. As an American, I see no reason why that would mean that they would have to give up a partnership or a relationship with our country... unless I'm missing something.
the whole world is not dumb
they know the US was complicit
in murdering 3,000 people
on 9/11 and the world doesn't
trust them anymore.

I remember reading somewhere that a lot of wealth left the UK and went to the USA during the 18/1900s.
The USA and the UK: both owned by the same toffs.

To topic. The "special relationship" will persist through the close historic links especially cultural, economic and in specialist areas such as intelligence. I think that in the last year or so the UK has begun to appreciate that much of the "relationship" has been one way and is never reciprocated and often US arrogance demeans efforts and attempts. Indeed, the Obama Administration treated the British PM shoddily (e.g. the gift of the DVDs) and a US official close to Obama is reported to have said...
There’s nothing special about Britain. You’re just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. You shouldn’t expect special treatment.
